Sipping on some cool nariyal paani while taking a break from promoting her latest film, Sameera tells us her five favourite ways to beat the heat...
Falooda: I simply love it. The sabja seeds in it have such a cooling effect. A falooda with lots of sabja seeds, jelly, dry fruits and ice cream is a treat in summers.
White pumpkin juice: Though it doesn’t seem very appealing, white pumpkin juice is very healthy. It cures cholesterol problems and helps in weight loss.
Coconut water: It is a perennial favourite. I can have five to six glasses of it on a hot day. It has a cooling effect on the stomach.
Nimbu paani: It is tasty and hydrates you pretty quickly. It is the perfect antidote to beat the body cramps you get due to dehydration during the summers.
Cold water showers: Thande thande paani se nahana chahiye... is my mantra for beating the heat.
