In between basking in the success of Bharat, that crossed over Rs 210 crore mark, and preparing for Sooryavanshi with Akshay Kumar, along with director Rohit Shetty, the actress has just been appointed as the brand ambassador for Reebok. In an exclusive interview with THE MAN, Katrina spoke about fitness, Bharat, love, food and much more.
Here are excerpts from the conversation:
What does this box office success mean to you?
It’s amazing and I am very grateful to the audience who have taken out time to watch this movie and my every other movie. This kind of box office success motivates me to work harder and be a part of good storytelling and challenge myself as an actor and deliver my best to the audience.
Your fitness mantra? What keeps you so fit and glowing?
I try having good amount of protein, vegetable, good carbohydrates like rice, sweet potato. The one important thing I stick to is I avoid refined sugar, dairy products and wheat. My fitness mantra is whatever makes you feel good, we have one life, one body, so take care of it. Take care of the body in the best way you can, you don’t need your look to be defined by any kind of conventional stereotype or anyone’s else’s opinion. So, do your best, look your best and don’t try to fit in anyone else’s picture. Eat well, exercise, do yoga. Once you are active, happy and fit, you’ll feel the glow inside out.

The fashion trend is already back and its Athleisure and I want it to stay. Athleisure is all about comfort and style and that’s my favorite part about this trending style. I have always been a huge wearer of athleisure. Anaita Shroff jokes that I was one of the first people to wear it to airports .
