When Malaika Arora rated Arjun Kapoor 'ZERO' for his yoga skills; read interesting details
Fitness enthusiast Malaika Arora has recently talked about beau Arjun Kapoor's yoga skills and more
Malaika Arora is the fitness queen of Bollywood. She is a fitness enthusiast and loves to indulge in mindful yoga and workout sessions to keep her body and mind fit and healthy.
A few years ago, when Malaika and Arjun Kapoor's relationship was hush-hush, she went on Neha Dhupia’s podcast. In the show, Malaika had said that Arjun is not good at yoga at all.
In an interview with News18, Malaika was asked about Arjun's yoga skills, to which she said, “That’s still a work in progress. He has certainly has (improved). He was somebody who used to say, ‘I can’t do yoga, because I’m not flexible’. That’s his constant, that ‘I’m not flexible, I can’t do yoga’. But now with time, having done X number of classes, he has realized what a big difference it has made to his flexibility. Overall, he just enjoys it. He always does five-six days of his hardcore workout, and then one day or two days a week, he says ‘I need to do yoga because I need to just get my body aligned’.”
Ahead of International Day of Yoga on June 21, Malaika is leading a campaign called #StartTohKaro.
The yoga-based wellness platform Sarva, founded by Malaika and her partner Sarvesh Shashi, encourages people to begin their fitness journey. One of the people in need of motivation right now is Malaika’s sister Amrita Arora, who recently skipped her fitness and gained 8 kilos.
“My sister has always been somebody who’s enjoyed working out. She loves being fit, she loves being a certain way. But I think the last couple of years has really taken a toll and not she’s just not been able to go back to that level of fitness. She is aware of it. She says, ‘I can’t help it, the kids take up so much time. I just don’t have time for myself.’ So I think you need to actually be able to finally break that cycle and say ‘I need to make time for myself, irrespective of what it is. This one is hour is for me, whether it is for fitness or gardening or anything. Sometimes it’s easier said than done. But it’s a start. That’s why we say ‘Start toh karo,’ then see where it goes,” Malaika says.
