Indian body type not suited for a bikini: Deepika

Deepika Padukone would be seen flaunting a bikini in her film 'Cocktail', but the actress feels that Indian body type is not naturally suited for the costume

"I wish it was so easy and natural. I think the Indian body type is somehow not suited for a bikini. We as Indians have to work a little extra hard if we wish to carry it off," the 26-year-old said here Thursday while unveiling the Melange Cocktail fashion collection.

Talking about her regime for the bikini shot, she said, "I changed my workout slightly. Basically, I just had to sacrifice going out for dinners every time Dino (producer Dinesh Vijan) took the cast out for dinners. I would just sit in my room alone and ate steamed fish and not have any dessert."

But once the shoot was over, Deepika let herself loose.

"I remember being so disciplined that the day I finished the bikini shoot and I knew I could start eating normally. He (Vijan) took me out for dinner and I had this big chocolate dessert. Food and desserts, I think the restaurant ran out of food," said Deepika humorously.

The film also stars Saif Ali Khan and model Diana Penty and hits theatres July 13.
