"This is why I love it so much."
Nargis Fakhri opened up about her fitness routine on International Yoga Day 2022.
She explained that when she was in New York in 2021, she began yoga after being gifted with a one-month free pass at a yoga studio.
The actress said: “I fell in love with kinds of yoga instantly.”
On how she is currently keeping herself fit, Nargis said:
“I’m a follower of yoga but I also incorporate other things into my fitness regimen.
“I love Pilates. I’m doing a lot of weight training these days with swimming, treadmill cardio and some HIIT exercises.
“I like to mix things up because it makes things exciting for me. I think when you keep a mix, you tend to lose weight faster.”
Nargis stated that she enjoys yoga because it is much more than just physical exercise.
“Yoga is not only for weight loss. Yoga is one exercise for me, which is for the body, mind and spirit. This is why I love it so much.
“When your body is healthy and your mind is not, it’s not going to get you anywhere, it’s vice versa. You need a combination of both.”
However, she admitted that there is pressure to stay fit all the time.
She told Hindustan Times: “Definitely, the pressure is on!
“There are a lot of fit men and women in the industry. It can get difficult to constantly be a fit role model. We are human and tend to slack off some time.”
Nargis Fakhri recently attended Cannes Film Festival and the IIFA Awards in Abu Dhabi after the Covid-19 pandemic prevented such events from happening.
Speaking about walking the red carpet, Nargis said:
“It feels amazing to be on the red carpet again.
“The most fun part is getting dressed up, you get to wear designer clothes, jewellery, and get your hair and makeup done.
“Obviously, we don’t look like this every day. It made me very happy to be on the scene again.”
In addition to fitness, Nargis also spoke about her private life.
On whether she is single or in a relationship, Nargis said:
“I’m single until there’s a ring on my finger. That is my only comment!”
On the work front, Nargis has four scripts that she is thinking about.
“Things are going to happen this year for sure and you will see me on screen next year. I am waiting to see myself back on the screen.”
