'My hips are under control'

She made an impact playing a plain Jane girl in debut flick Yahaan. And now, Minissha Lamba is game to try even item numbers. But she is troubled by her derriere! Read on to know why...

Sometime back, you were having problems with your growing hips. Have you controlled them now?
Yes. Now I am very happy that my work out and dieting have helped me control my expanding hips. I was really very upset earlier. They were growing like anything. In fact, growing hips is the problem of every woman in our country. It was so problematic that all the time it was bothering me but now finally I am happy that it's fully under control.

So, how did you manage to work out your over-growing derriere? What all did you do?
It was very difficult, as I had to sweat out a lot in the gym and had to do other exercises too. Moreover, I controlled my diet. I just avoided anything that was fatty. During that period, I ate food rich in proteins and vitamins but nothing very fatty as I knew that these fats would get deposited on my body. So I really worked very hard to keep my hips in proper shape.

Have you ever faced any health problem?
Besides my hips, I have a tendency of putting on weight very easily. I used to be plump during childhood. So if I eat something fatty, most of it gets deposited on my hips than other parts of the body. But since I have curbed my diet everything is under control now.

Of late, lots of upcoming actresses are getting figure-conscious because of their preference for item numbers. Is this the case with you too?
I am getting in shape because I believe that an actress should have a great body and enticing figure. As far as item numbers are concerned, I feel nothing against them. I am all for item song and dance. After all, item songs form important part of a film.
