As expected, the fittest and most supple amongst Bollywood's smart set were a-bending and a-stretching all through yesterday.

"Inhale positivity n exhale negativity. Happy international yoga day…" posted the gorgeous and supple, and supply gorgeous, Malaika Arora Khan on Instagram along with a picture of her performing a mind-boggling and body-scrambling pose with her trainer. This adeptness and adjustability was also observed that morning when she sat alongside her newly estranged husband, and current BFF, well-known yoga exponent Arbaaz Khan, performing various holding-on and letting-go asanas.

Of course, in the presence of all this heavy breathing could the statuesque Bollywood-Yogini-in-residence, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, be far behind? The actress and fitness enthusiast who had produced and starred in a delectable yoga DVD not too long ago, put up her own evidence of ultimate yoga compatibility.

Not too far away from her in Bandra, young newlyweds (well, yoga keeps people young) Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover attempted their own version of hot yoga. "Yoga is like Life – It's a beautiful balance of Holding On & Letting Go," Basu declared, as if in symbiotic resonance with Arora and Khan.

Not to be forgotten, celebrated actor and the man most likely to get a Rajya Sabha seat or a ministerial berth (or both), Anupam Kher unleashed a yoga hologram in faraway New York. The sharp intake of breath that he emitted while doing so prompted many of his fans watching on TVs across the world to assume that it was Pranayama that he was attempting, and followed suit obediently, leading to an exponential amount of hot air being emitted all round.
