How do you stay fit?
I eat and that’s the first myth I’d like to break. I love eating. I don’t skip my meals, especially breakfast as it forms a very important part of my eating regime. I follow a daily exercise regime as well.

How do you keep your hunger pangs at bay during long shooting hours?
I do not deprive myself of food but eat frequent small meals. I follow a balanced meal plan. I work out regularly and ensure I stay fit. And I start my day with a nourishing breakfast that is the most important meal of the day.

What is your morning ritual? 
Ans: I never leave home without having a nourishing breakfast. I always plan my day so as to give myself time for my workout routine and my breakfast.

Tip for all the girls want to become as fit as you
Ans: Do not starve yourself. Eat right to manage your weight and make breakfast eating a daily habit. Stay active and exercise everyday; be it a jog or cycling or a sport - whatever interests you. Start these things today. Don’t postpone this to tomorrow. Start with what you can. Keep stress away.

You have been long associated with Special K. What do you have to say?
I try and associate with brands that I relate to or identify with. Kellogg’s Special K encourages women to stay fit and healthy.
