In a chat with 24hours Newspaper, the gorgeous actress, whose vital statistics are 30-22-44, admitted that although her curvy figure draws her a lot of attention, which she enjoys to some extent, she also finds it very annoying sometimes and wants people to look beyond her jaw-dropping body.
“I want people to see me beyond my body. I want them to see me as intelligent, smart and talented.”
Talking about her figure, which has earned her admiration, she said she had a very strict dieting and exercise regimen which she observed every day.
“I exercise every single day, I don’t have to go to the gym but I make sure I do my sit-ups at home. I drink my green tea, warm water and lemon every day and I am always on diet. Naturally, I have always been curvy. The slim waist is the result of waist training but the figure is God given,” she said.
