Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor, who imported the size zero fad in the country, says she is proud to be the “Indian size zero”, which means being really slim.
“I think in India, size zero means being slim. Every girl wants to be really slim and I think I am quite slim. India’s size zero is associated with me and I am proud of that,” said Kapoor.
The 27-year-old actress was in the city to launch size zero laptop models by Sony Vaio and her slim figure was what connected her to the product.
Kareena hit headlines when she lost eight kilos to acquire a bikini body for Tashan. Though the film failed to create any magic at the box office, Kareena’s thin figure became the talk of the town, sparking the whole size zero trend in India.
“Kareena is known for being size zero, so Vaio has associated their new size zero laptops, which are only a half-inch thick, with her,” said Masaru Tamagawa, Managing Director, Sony India.
When asked whether she is a tech-savvy person, Kareena said, “I am an Internet savvy person, more because I travel a lot and I need to keep in touch with people at home.”
