Actor Swara Bhaskar attributes her fitness to proper eating and regular yoga
“Fitness is a state of mind. A trend has emerged to shape the body for a particular character like the athlete we saw in Bhag Milkha Bhaag in Bollywood nowadays,” said Raanjhanaa fame Swara Bhaskar.
Talking about her fitness, she said, “Thank God I have got a lean body.”
She was recently in the Capital to promote her film Machhali Jal ki Rani Hai. It is a paranormal thriller in which she is playing the lead, a happily married woman. The life of the couple changes suddenly when they get involved in a major road accident.
Not a regular visitor to the gym, Swara is conscious about what she eats.
“We should be conscious of our intake as it tells on our physique,” she said. In spite of her busy schedule, she manages to practice yoga which she believes is a perfect way to be mentally calm and fit.
“Yoga is a way to attain perfect mental fitness which gives strength to face the hurdles of life,” said Swara.
Talking about her character in Machhali Jal ki Rani Hai she said, “I have taken this character, because I found a connection with it. I believe in paranormal activity. It has a universal appeal as the title of the film is common and everyone must have read the poem during their childhood.”
As she is for the first time playing a role in a horror movie, she asserted, “One should go beyond one’s comfort zone and portray a character different from usual. This gives an added dimension to one’s career.”
