Size zero is the newest fad in Bollywood. After Kareena Kapoor, the latest slim-as-a-reed looking actress is Amrita Arora, but she doesnâ€™t like to be labelled anorexic.
â€˜I hate it when Kareena and now I are called anorexic. What a terrible description. We both love our meals. Trust me, Kareena eats heartily, and so do I,â€™ Amrita said.
â€˜It is only my face. Like Kareenaâ€™s, I too have a chubby face. Itâ€™s just that for the first time in my life Iâ€™ve lost weight on my face. So has Kareena,â€™ she added.
Amrita, who will be seen with Kareena in Golmaal Returns, says she didnâ€™t go to extremes to lose weight.
â€˜Iâ€™m doing nothing out of the way. I still go to the gym only once a day and Iâ€™m not starving myself.â€™
She admits Kareena has a positive influence on her. â€˜Kareena is my best friend. And like all best friends she has a positive influence on me. She introduced me to power yoga and that changed my life and my physicality.â€™
As for size zero, Amrita sighs, â€˜Iâ€™m size 6-8. Zero seems a distant dream and I donâ€™t even want to get there, please. When people talk about me being anorexic and a size zero, I feel bad. Thatâ€™s not the kind of influence I want to be on audiences.â€™
