How Bollywood stars from Alia Bhatt to Sonam Kapoor got into the fittest shape of their lives

Your daily dose of fitspo

Do it for the ‘gram may seem like the mantra that powers celebrities through their stringent fitness routines, but their real talent lies in keeping on going when they really, really don’t want to. Take a quick peek at the roster of young actors, and we’ll show you a success story for each day of the week. Bhumi Pednekar dropped 21 kilos in four months after piling on the weight for her debut movie, Dum Laga Ke Haisha. At the age of 19, Alia Bhatt swore that she’d never go to meet a director for an audition unless she was in good shape.

But let's be clear: these body transformation success stories aren't about complying with the industry’s cookie-cutter demands of being thin. Parineeti Chopra and Sonakshi Sinha can both attest to the life-affirming power of being fit, over slipping into a smaller size of jeans. To ensure that that burst of Monday Motivation lasts through the week, we rounded up all that Bollywood’s fittest names have done to get in the best shape of their lives.
