Fit hai, toh hit hai
Staying fit has always been an important part of my life even before I entered the world of modelling. As a student, I regularly practised martial arts, which helped me stay fit and flexible. I did karate for five years and taekwondo for two years. Acting is a physically demanding job so fitness is not only a professional requirement, but also a way of life.

Gym jam
I visit the gym five times a week. Weights and cardio exercises form my regular routine. I do weights daily and cardio twice a week. Post my workout, I head for a 15-20 minutes swim. It helps in building flexibility and relaxes the heart rate.

Jazz up
I am also very fond of dancing. It is great form of cardio workout. I learn jazz dancing under Ashley Lobo and go for classes thrice a week. I am learning this form of dancing since the last year-and-a-half. So I don't have to worry too much about my cardio regime in the gym, because I make it up by dancing.

Diet basics
I start my day with a glass of vegetable juice followed by some papaya, porridge and eggs. My lunch consists of one bajre ki roti, vegetables, dal and dahi. In the evening, I have a protein shake along with a fist full of nuts. Dinner is either a portion of fish or chicken with a roti along with vegetables followed by some ice cream once in a while.I believe that giving into temptations once or twice a week works wonderfully in keeping your happiness quotient high.
