The "Piya basanti" girl has a very simple fitness formula –mind what you eat. Nauheed Cyrusi doesn't practise that preaching very religiously herself, but thankfully, her body structure is such that she makes do with little or no exercise. We caught up with bubbly actress to find out how she maintains herself.
Are you a fitness freak?
No, not at all. I try to eat healthy. Whenever I don't, I tend to gain weight. And whenever I gain weight, I stop eating rich food for a few days. Once I regain my normal weight I binge all over again.
Which type of exercise do you do?
I have a treadmill at home which is just for show. I even hang clothes on it. It was bought so that I exercise regularly, but I never used it. I play a lot of badminton and that is the secret of my fit body.
How important is it for an actor to look physically fit?
It is very important for an actor to look physically fit because it is a part of the job. I must say that everyone should look fit because it makes you look more attractive.
Were you always a fitness freak or being in the glamour industry turned you into one?
I was never a fitness freak and will never be, because I believe in eating healthy. I am against dieting.
Do you think a nice figure or built means the person is fit?
Not necessarily, because there are many slim and curvaceous people who lack stamina. Hence, one should be healthy from within. The curves and biceps come only after health.
Do you feel fitness adds appeal to the personality?
No. I know so many people with charming personality who are plump. I don't think that fitter body gives you a good personality.
Any tips you would like to give to our readers?
Eat healthy and stay good. Never diet. Drink lots and lots of water.
