DO YOU HAVE A SET SLEEPING AND WAKING UP TIME?
Of course yes!!
When I am not working, I wake up at 8 am and try to sleep by 12 or 12.30 am max. But when I’m working, I wake up 4 am in the morning and train before I get to work at 7 am.
WHAT’S YOUR DIET LIKE?
I’m actually a very big foodie. I really like to eat out a lot but thankfully I have a partner who only likes eating at home. His good habits do rub off on me a bit. I try to limit eating sweets and try to eat as many home cooked meals as possible.
My home food is basically oats, eggs, juice (breakfast). For lunch its chicken, dal, and sabji. And for dinner its dal and sabji again.
WHAT’S YOUR WORKOUT SCHEDULE LIKE?
I try to take out at least 2 hours every day. It’s not just the routine that you need to follow. I believe the joints need to be warmed up in order to prevent injuries because I am the sort of person who works out 7 days a week. I have osteoarthritis from last 15 years, so I need to be extra careful towards my joints.
HOW DID YOU DEVELOP OSTEOARTHRITIS AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE?
Lack of knowledge of the body, making up excuses like I don’t need this or exercising is so boring- I was that person. So when you do something, like if you start dancing suddenly, or you just start running with the wrong shoes you can hurt yourself. You need to learn about all these things and know yourself. You can’t just do something which another person is also doing since everyone is different.
In 2005, everyone had told me that I need to get my knees operated-that I can’t dance, won’t be able to do any action sequence. The pain is still there. I do extreme weight training for my legs to offload the stress on my knees. This is the reason I invest a lot in my health.
DO YOU SMOKE OR DRINK?
I have an addiction to sugar only. If you read the studies, sugar is an extremely addictive substance.
I detest smoking. In fact, I keep sending literature to people on why they should stop smoking. Alcohol, on the other hand, is like a celebration drink from me—Champagne or maybe just a grape juice on someone’s birthday party.
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR RELATION WITH YOUR HUBBY (Karan Singh Grover)
We are very much similar and that’s why we are like very close friends.
Mere se zada wo Bengali ban gaya hai abhi 😛 He is a strange sardaar, who doesn’t want Prantha n all, he only wants BHAAT ( Bengali Dish) every day. And I don’t eat bhaat every day; I only eat once on my birthday. Even he speaks fluent Bengali.
There are so many things we both love like we both are fitness freak and love to work out together, we love to travel and there are so many times people say like your honeymoon is never ending (lol).
Luckily, I didn’t want to change anything in him and neither did he want to change anything in me. That’s how it makes us a happy couple.
And I still feels that he is my boyfriend and not my Hubby (hahaha).
WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS REGARDING BEING FRIENDS WITH AN EX?
See if your ex is an as***** it’s not possible. But if your ex is a good human being and things didn’t gel well between you then, of course, it’s possible, but it depends.
