Apart from her healthy diet plan, the British-Indian actress stays fit by keeping herself active. “I do a lot of walking, although occasionally I will run, as well as regular meditation and some yoga”, said the actress. “I don’t have a trainer, but one of my friends is one and she taught me a bunch of strength-training moves so I can do it on my own.” She also shared how she loves peaceful exercise, which is why she’s fond of yoga. As for her on-the-go workout, she said it’d be walking as she can do it wherever.
