When it comes to being fit, Deepika Padukone seems to be breaking all records in Bollywood. The actor recently confessed jumping out of airplanes and swimming with sharks during the shoot of director Homi Adajania’s film, Cocktail, in Cape Town, South Africa. The five-foot-nine inch tall actor says she’s at her fittest with her current weight — 60kgs.
“Once the shoot was over, we (Homi and co-actor Diana Penty) would take off to the village of Gansbaai to swim with great white sharks. We also jumped out of airplanes, thrice. I wouldn’t have been able to do any of this if I weren’t fit and healthy,” says Deepika, 26.
“I’m definitely looking my best now,” she says, in an interview to Vogue India. “While I believe that when you are in the glamour industry, you have to look your best, I also believe being skinny is not hot and happening. Fitness depends on the fat percentage and not body weight. Lots of skinny people have a high fat percentage. That’s unhealthy,” she says.
It’s not just gymming that’s keeping Deepika fit, it’s dancing too. She apparently danced all night at filmmaker Karan Johar’s recent birthday party. ‘Deepika just wouldn’t get off the dance floor,” Johar said in an interview.
