"I have not touched bread, rice or even roti for the last 4 years. I can't even remember the last time I had a roti. My diet consists mainly of fruits and vegetables. Almost throughout the day I have a glass of juice, either carrot/ orange/ watermelon or a glass of coconut water."
- Bollywood newcomer Ayesha Takia, speaking to Sunday Midday
She is 3 movies old - two duds (Taarzan, Dil Maange More) and one semi-dud (Socha na tha). But this 19 year old sure adds a new meaning to the phrase "hungry to succeed". If her diet is anything to go by...
And oh, she does 2 hours of aerobics every day.
What do we, lesser mortals, infer after reading such interviews? That we should be grateful to be ordinary and less-than-perfect .
We don't have to deprive ourselves of sev puri, pav bhaji and gooey chocolate cake.
Or atone for the sins of eating the same by vomiting it all out later.
Here's a great idea for a Reality Show:
Lock the models at Lakme India Fashion Week in a room full of real food.
Then, watch them struggle into those slinky clothes.
Should be a riot :)
