Q1. How fitness is important for actors?
Fitness is not only important for actors but for every individual. But, there are two major reasons why it is important for actors to be fit.
- The job of an actor expects them to look their best at all times
- People look up to actors for motivation, since they are public figures and tend to influence a lot of people to follow a particular lifestyle.
Thus, it becomes more important for us to adapt and promote the correct way of life.
Q2. What diet do you stick on?
A – Home-cooked food is my diet mantra. I follow a high protein – low carb diet. I avoid junk food, but there are times when I crave for them. So that becomes my cheat day. However, I settle those extra calories by doing some high-intensity workout the next day. My idea is to have a dietary pattern that can last for a lifetime rather than crash diets that are short-lived.
Q3.Fitness tips for all amid this pandemic situation?
Take care of your body. I know the gyms are shut and people are losing motivation. But keep yourself charged up. Make it a point to workout every day at home. There are a lot of resources available on YouTube to do the same. Start taking bi-weekly challenges and achieve your goals. If your interest is not in workouts then take up dance lessons or start with Zumba. Stop being lazy. Physical and Mental well-being is the need of the hour.
Q4. What all new have you learned amid lockdown?
Apart from my regulars of acting, reading, and watching movies. I made some room in my time – table to learn how to do Full -Splits and Handstand which I was always keen on learning. Also, I devoted my time to dance and meditate. Meditation is something I have been doing for years. However, I am focusing more on it as I would prioritize my mental health over anything.
Q5. What is your biggest dream?
In all honesty, my biggest dream is to become a leading Bollywood star and I am working relentlessly for the same. It’s my childhood dream that I am patiently trying to achieve. Once I accomplish a certain milestone in life – I will certainly open an animal shelter for homeless animals. That’s my other dream.
Q6. Have you ever faced nepotism in the industry? What is your take on that?
A – No, I haven’t experienced nepotism in the industry yet. According to me, Nepotism is like favoritism and favoritism exists everywhere. I believe in the power of manifestation which I feel is stronger than anything else. So it’s your talent, hardwork and good luck on your kitty that will take you places.
