Malaika has tied up with celebrity management and entertainment marketing company Exceed Entertainment and yoga studio Zorba for Diva Yoga, described as an elite yoga studio exclusively for women.
Talking about her love for yoga, Malaika said: "I have been practising yoga for many years and anybody who knows me knows my love for fitness and yoga. Yoga was introduced to me when I had a really bad injury. That's how I started doing yoga...and that's how my love affair with yoga started."
Crediting Prime Minister Narendra Modi for spreading awareness about yoga among people, Malaika said: "I think our Prime Minister has created a lot of awareness among people regarding yoga, and after his initiative, we observe 21st June as 'International Yoga Day'. So, it is really nice that people have started incorporating yoga in their daily fitness regime."
Malaika made her last appearance in a special song titled Hello Hello! in Pataakha, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. She is now seen as a judge the reality show MTV India's Next Top Model.
