Newbie Zoa Morani is set for a tryst with Bollywood in Shah Rukh Khan's production, Always Kabhi Kabhi and she has left no stone unturned to make a rollicking debut. Zoa is geared up to don a sultry avatar for a song and nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, who has worked with Kareena Kapoor, informs that Zoa has worked hard on her body for a year.
Zoa was “very impressed” with how Kareena achieved a healthy and toned figure. Says Rujuta: “She looks up to Kareena when it comes to fitness because she has seen Bebo eating and still maintaining a perfect body. In fact, Kareena is one of the reasons why Zoa wanted to achieve a fit body.”
Around the time Zoa shot the song in Goa, she gorged on a lot of local delicacies. “And I think that’s the reason she looks very fresh in the song,” says Rujuta. “If your taste buds and stomach are happy, it will show on your face and body.”
So, during the song’s shoot, Zoa ate Kokam dishes, juices and Xacuti. Although Zoa was kept off salt for a few days around the shoot, Rujuta feels it’s not directly linked to her toned body.
Zoa says, “It was very tough because I love food a lot, but the hard work paid off. So it was worth it.” According to Rujuta, Zoa has been working hard on her body for a year. “Earlier, Zoa was working as an assistant director. And as ADs, you eat all sorts of things. But she was very keen to get in shape and followed all my instructions,” she says.
