When asked how she stays in shape, the actress answered: “I love my gymnastics and a flexible body, so I indulge in a lot of yoga from that aspect. I am not really into mediation etc. but I am more interested in physical benefits of yoga. I love the fact that it helps me keep a control on my body and muscles.”
She also observes a regular fitness routine. She makes sure she allots some time to exercise. Despite her busy schedule, she makes it a point to leave some time for her workout routine. She revealed: “Be it gym or yoga, I love it all. I start my day with it and it has to be at least for an hour and a half each morning. Even when I am holidaying, I stick to this regime.” She knows that exercising on a regular basis does not only maintain her healthy weight and make her stronger, but it also makes her happier, like basically in a good mood. It’s because the brain releases endorphins, the feel-good chemicals when you’re exercising.
