Is it your profession that makes you a fitness freak or you just like being healthy?
Even before I began to model, I was running in parks to exercise. I belonged to a middle class family and did not have the financial strength to workout in expensive places. During my school days, sometimes I would miss the school bus and walk a lot to get the DTC. I lived in Saket and St Columba’s school was near the Central Secretariat.
How much gymming is good gymming?
It depends; one could gym for hours if needed or just do simple exercises. But 40-50 minutes of exercise is mandatory for all daily to be healthy. Every individual needs different training as they have different needs and are at different stages.
Do you think people should exercise more in the open?
That’s how we did as children. And it is the ideal way to exercise. The zig-zag entrance bars were perfect for triceps. And there could be some way of adding some parallel bars in parks even now. Sadly, children are constantly indoors now. We used to play cricket in the parks but now I don’t see this anymore as they struggle with a variety of technology indoors.
What is your daily routine?
Water is very essential for the human body. I drink at least 8-10 glasses a day, two lukewarm glasses in the morning. Then apple cider vinegar in lukewarm water and honey. Besides coffee, I have no addictions, I am a teetotaler and even coffee I am trying to let go. The human body is our tangible presence and we must respect it.
