Neelam Kothari Soni
Those who tuned into Netflix’s 'Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives' might remember actor-jewellery designer Neelam Kothari Soni undergoing Botox treatment on one of the episodes. Now, she has signed up for a four-week detox wellness programme at a health resort near Pune. “Sameer [Soni, husband] came up with the suggestion as the resort has a summer camp for children. We thought it would be a wholesome experience for us as well as for Ahana [daughter] who hasn’t been able to engage in outdoor activities due to the pandemic,” shares Kothari.
While she looks forward to the physical benefits of the programme, the actor hopes the “mental and digital detox” will help her combat the fear and anxiety brought on by the pandemic. “Our lives have changed a lot; we can’t go out, and are scared to meet people. Being in a green and open environment will [help calm] the mind. In the process, if I manage to lose a couple of pounds, why not? That’s a win-win situation.”
