Are you a fitness freak?
Of course I am a fitness freak, but I don’t work out because of the hectic schedule I have. Even then, I make sure that I have a strict diet control and whenever I get time, instead of a workout I practice on my dance. I am a classically trained dancer, so dancing helps me to remain fit.
Do you follow any particular fitness regime?
No as we people don’t get time to follow a particular fitness regime, I only concentrate on my diet and my dance practice. However, I diligently consume luke warm water with honey as soon as I get up and see to it that I take in sprout and curd in my afternoon diet.
Do you think proper diet is the right way to remain fit?
Yes, I do believe in that. I have light food whenever I am out for my shoot, and usually end my day with chapati, sabzi and dal at dinner.
What is the importance of fitness according to you?
It’s very important to keep your body going, that too when you are put to so much of hectic schedule. I believe that body is a machine and if we take proper care, it will help in the long run. We cannot be careless in this regard at all.
Do you idolize anyone in the media fraternity when it comes to good physique?
Yes, I do I idolize Hema Malini; she is very gorgeous at this age also. She has maintained herself very well; when I saw her in Bhaagban, I was completely thrilled to see her in great shape.
Do you equate fitness with a good shape of the body?
Yes I think both are the two sides of a coin. Only if you are fit will you be able to maintain a good figure. Otherwise, you will be completely out of shape.
