Top 5 healthiest Bollywood stars
The Bollywood stars to inspire healthy living
With energetic dance routines as part of their day jobs, whether it’s in rehearsals or when performing, it’s no wonder Bollywood stars stay so fit. We’ve rounded up five of the healthiest Bollywood stars to hopefully inspire your healthy living.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Bollywood actress and model Aishwarya is known for her beauty and slender figure, especially since being crowned Miss World in 1994 and dubbed as one of the world’s most beautiful women (and hottest mom!). To keep healthy outside and in, Aishwarya drinks at least eight glasses of water a day and makes use of a fitness trainer to get the most out of her workouts. Since becoming a mother, the Bollywood star is motivated to uphold a healthy and active lifestyle.
A well-known friend of fitness, the in-shape star goes for a run with his dogs each morning to keep trim and to maintain his fitness levels. In the gym, he aims to target two body parts in one session, usually by repeating his choice exercises such as pull-ups, crunches and chin-ups into the hundreds – long after most of us would give up! But Salman takes his fitness seriously and doesn’t lose focus during his workouts which is probably why he remains so enviably muscular, not forgetting his famous six-pack.
Described as one of the fittest actresses in Bollywood, with one of the most desirable figures to match. Bipashu has her own fitness DVD and believes that health affects other aspects of your life, and so she holds it as a great priority. The Bollywood star enjoys a protein-rich diet, low in oil and rice, especially when preparing for on screen roles, and maintains an alcohol and smoke-free lifestyle. Bipasha exercises six days a week for an hour – mixing it up to help her stay interested. She is said to perform over 100 Surya Namaskara (the yoga pose ‘sun salutations’) each morning and starts her day with a big breakfast to kick start her metabolism.
Shilpa has a figure most women in their twenties would be jealous of. But through her dedication to yoga combined with weight training Shilpa has indeed worked for her classic slim waist and sculpted hips. Her dedication to yoga encouraged her to release a yoga DVD to spread the word of its benefits on the body. She reportedly starts her day with small glass of pure aloe vera juice to cleanse her system and opts for brown instead of white foods, such as brown rice and wholemeal flour. A big lover of green and chai tea, Shilpa also eats a high fibre diet full of lean meat, fish and vegetables.
Being a trained dancer, Shahid has the discipline to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. The Bollywood star aims to incorporate cardio exercise into his daily routine, while trying to exercise one different body part each day to maintain his toned physique. Cutting out fast and fried foods and sugar while enjoying a vegan diet ensures Shahid keeps lean and full of energy. Dubbed one of the fittest actors in Bollywood, Shahid is no stranger to strict health and fitness regimes, particularly in preparation for acting roles. His tips on maintaining his physique and fitness levels are working out 5-6 times a week and eating regularly, approximately every three hours.
