Stay fit, stay fabulous. That’s the mantra actor Bipasha Basu swears by. A fitness enthusiast, the 32-year-old Bollywood diva talks about fitness, fashion winter care and lot more:



What’s your fitness mantra?

I’m a fitness enthusiast and it takes a lot of discipline and special care to get a fit body. It is important that you exercise everyday to stay fit. The main emphasis should be on working out the abs and lower limbs.



BipashaA mix of cardio and weight training helps. These are important just not for a good bikini body but a fit and fabulous body in general. I also stick to a specific diet and keep away from sweets. I never indulge in junk food and most importantly, I eat on time. I’m glad I did all this because my discipline has paid off and I have received umpteen compliments for the look.



How do you take care of yourself in winter?


I primarily take a healthy diet comprising vitamin B2 or Riboflavin. A good moisturiser helps a long way in keeping skin nourished in this season. Chapped lips are one of the most common problems in this season so a good lip balm is a must. I use Vasocare and even apply a thin coat before putting on lipstick. Most importantly, even if you don’t feel thirsty, keep yourself well- hydrated by having lots of water. I drink around eight glasses of water every day.



Do you plan to roll out more fitness videos in future?


My fitness DVD, Bipasha Basu Love Yourself — Fit and Fabulous You was appreciated and has inspired me to work towards my next DVD.



I am aiming at launching a series of DVDs in 2012. My first DVD was more women-centric so my male fans wrote back requesting not to neglect them. So, now I am working towards something that will be beneficial for both men and women.



Lastly, what is your fashion mantra?

Comfort comes first. I prefer my garments to be comfortable and of course fashionable. I pick garments which reflect my personality and my penchant for fitness.



One must exercise everyday. The main emphasis should be on working out the abs and lower limbs. A mix of cardio and weight training helps

I might launch my next series of fitness DVDs in 2012. My first DVD was more women-centric, but these would benefit even men.
