Actress Deepika Padukone, who’s been linked to Farhan Akhtar, Shahid Kapoor and most recently liquor baron Vijay Mallya’s son Siddharth, is unfazed by the rumours and says she has learnt to accept the fact that all this comes with the work she does.
“It makes no difference to me because I know that I am leading a life I want. I understand that it comes with the work I do and I am fine with it. I am very happy with my life and the work I am doing,” Padukone, who was in the capital to inaugurate the Power Biking Studio of Anatomy health Club, told IANS. Also present were ace badminton players Saina Nehwal and P. Gopichand.
The actress is also shooting for her new film “Break Ke Baad” starring Imran Khan in Delhi.
A self-confessed fitness freak, Padukone feels that regular workouts, yoga, healthy eating and positive thinking is what makes her look fit.
“I think everybody’s body type is different and it reacts differently to different work outs. It is important for you to understand what suits your body and exercise accordingly,” she said.
“I do a lot of yoga. Although I eat everything but at the same time I know there are certain kinds of food that I put on weight with so I try to avoid them. I think eating healthy, regular workouts and positive thinking can help anybody look better,” she added.
Unlike other Bollywood actresses, the 24-year-old doesn’t believe in being size zero.
“I don’t think it is healthy to be size zero. The Indian body is not cut out to be size zero. It is always nice to look healthy,” Padukone said.
She also refuses to take the tag of being the lucky mascot for Mallya’s IPL team Banglore Royal Challengers.
“I think if the team is playing well the credit should go to all the players. It is very unfair to say that I am the lucky mascot and give me the credit,” she said.y
