Actor Sara Ali Khan has opened up about her remarkable fitness transformation on her journey to becoming a star.
Taking to Instagram, Khan posted a video doing a tough fitness regime which is sure to serve as an inspiration to many. “Monday motivation. Everyday dedication. Then guilt-free vacation,” she wrote.
The star is seen in the share with her Pilates instructor and seemed to be spelling out her life’s mantra – exercise with dedication and thereafter enjoy guilt-free vacations, reported Hindustan Times. The post received a lot of positive feedback with many appreciating her hardworking nature and dedication.
In September this year, she had shared a picture of herself with mother Amrita Singh. “Throwback to when I couldn’t be thrown.” This was the time when the actor weighed nearly 96 kilos. In an earlier interview with BBC, she mentioned she had been struggling from PCOD (polycystic ovary syndrome).
Khan continued, “I went to Columbia for four years and at the end of the second year, I decided that I really want to act, like I said I have always known, but that realisation coincided with the weigh scale saying that I’m 96 kilos. So, it was a bit difficult. Then it was the senior year of college in America itself that I lost the weight.”
“I was a regular kid. It made it very hard for me to lose weight and the hormone level was very high. So, as you can see, there is a level of delusion that was in me…I was confident, I was delusional,” she added.
Talking of her dilemma, she said, “Jahaan aapko pizza milta hain, wahin aapko protein milta hain. Jahaan pe chocolate milta hain, wahin aapko salad milta hain (On one hand you could eat a pizza and on the other you could have protein, on one hand you could get chocolate and on the other you could eat salad). That was it. So, I lost all the weight that I had gained there and lots more by working out and maintaining a disciplined life.”
On the work front, Khan has been busy shooting for David Dhawan’s Coolie No 1, a remake of his earlier ’90s hit of the same name. She has also completed shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s sequel of his own earlier hit, Love Aaj Kal, where she co-stars with Kartik Aaryan.
