How Alia dealt with her break-up
Overdose on endorphins, not junk food
Alia Bhatt will not confirm her relationship, or rumoured break-up, with Sidharth Malhotra, but she will have you know that she’s learnt a thing or two about heartbreak. First, that it attracts bad advice. “I hate it when people tell you to try and distract yourself. That’s very lame. It is temporary. Nobody’s found a cure for heartbreak. If they had, the world would be a much happier place.”
Her advice is to be patient, let the pain run its course, and as you wait, OD on endorphins by getting a great revenge body.
She also admits that her relationship with her body only improved once she accepted this inconvenient truth—if you want to feel good about your body, you have to work towards making your body feel good.
“To feel healthy from the inside takes effort. For that, following a basic workout regime is necessary, even if it’s just a daily walk. We sleep for eight hours a day. We should be able to get our ass moving for one hour,” she says. She now finds her time with the Pilates reformer, usually joined by partner Katrina Kaif, as fulfilling as a portion of XL fries.
