It is no news to the fans of Sara Ali Khan that she used to be massively overweight. Behind her current toned and envy-worthy body is years of hard work. Back in her college days, Sara used to weight 96 kgs!
Sara is known for religiously following her gym routine. She doesn’t miss her workout even for a single day.
In a recent interview to Vogue, she opened up on her weight loss journey. She said,
“For me, it all started in New York. I weighed 96kg and had a year to go before I graduated. The transition from pizza to salad and from lethargy to cardio is how I kickstarted my fitness journey. I simply started eating healthy and began working out when in New York,” adding, “There were so many different types of classes in that city, from functional training to boxing to cycling. But because I was so overweight at the start, it was more about cardio-heavy workouts like walking, cycling and hitting the treadmill—so that I could lose the weight before entering the intermediate forms of exercise.”
Sara continues to stay healthy with “a combination of functional training, Pilates, boxing and cardio. I like to change things up, but ensure that I work out for an hour and a half every single day—except on Sunday, because that’s my day to chill.”
On the professional front, Sara is shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s sequel to Love Aaj Kal in which she is paired opposite Kartik Aaryan. Sara is yet to start shooting for David Dhawan’s Coolie No. 1 opposite Varun Dhawan as well.
