Can chocolates arouse a woman's sexual desire? Well, actress Jiah Khan, popularly called Lolita, thinks so. And that's the reason she has been avoiding chocolates!

"I know that chocolates can enhance the sexuality of a person. I have read it and heard from others also and that's one reason why I keep myself away from having them. I am quite health conscious. I keep my diet quite measured so that I don't get fats on my body. I just don't want to look fatty. Too many chocolates give you fats on your body. Apart from sexual enhancer, this is another reason why I avoid eating chocolates," quips Jiah, who has stirred the Bollywood with her remarks on the Big B.

The 19-year-old makes no bones about her infatuation with Amitabh Bachchan with whom she is doing her debut film Nishabd. What she portrays in the film is just opposite in real life. While in film Amitabh portrays the character of an old professor who gets attracted to a younger girl, in real life it has been just the contrary between the two.

Besides Big B, bold scenes in the films are also drawing attention of many in the industry. But Jiah justifies it as she justifies her love for Big B. "Initially when Ramuji told me about the sensuous scenes, I was in two minds. Doing bold scenes with someone quite older to me was something I was really uncomfortable with initially and I also expressed my inability to Ramuji. But somehow he convinced me saying that its the need of the story. And once I started shooting for it, I said goodbye to all my inhibitions," explains Jiah.

She further adds, "When I had come to India for the first time, I saw Rangeela as it was released during that time. I was quite impressed by this movie and decided to act in Hindi films. It was such a coincidence that now I got an opportunity to debut in Ramuji's film."
