Sara Ali Khan shared her massive body transformation journey from ‘I don’t know if I can do this’ to ‘I did it’.
Sara tells, “I was 96 kgs. ‘It will be almost rude to call you fat,’ is what you said. Actually, I had PCOD. I still do. And, because of that, I think I put on the amount of weight that I did. Because of that, there was also like a hormone problem.”
In another interview with the BBC, she said, “I went to Columbia for four years and at the end of the second year, I decided that I really want to act, like I said I have always known, but that realisation coincided with the weigh scale saying that I’m 96 kilos. So, it was a bit difficult. Then it was the senior year of college in America itself that I lost the weight.”
Talking about her weight loss journey, Sara said, “I remember saying ‘you know what I am going to do it’ and I went to the gym and did 3 crunches with a weighted ball in my hand and I couldn’t do more because I was heavy and I was not fit. I left the gym and came home and said that ‘you know what, I don’t know if I can do this. Maybe I can’t’.”
She further added, “I woke up the next day and went back to the gym and did 4 crunches and then I did 5 and then I did 6 and I really don’t need to boast but I am down for a crunch challenge right now. I did a lot of abs this morning.”
Sara credited her transformation to her Pilates instructor,
Sara went on to lose all her weight before she debuted in Kedarnath alongside Sushant Singh Rajput. Sara once posted, thanking Namrata, “Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live. Namrata Purohit thank you for teaching me how to love my body, feed my soul and calm my nerves.”
Opening up about her problems, she said, “Jahaan aapko pizza milta hain, wahin aapko protein milta hain. Jahaan pe chocolate milta hain, wahin aapko salad milta hain (On one hand you could eat a pizza and on the other, you could have protein, on one hand you could get chocolate and on the other, you could eat salad). That was it. So, I lost all the weight that I had gained there and lots more by working out and maintaining a disciplined life.”
