From Hollywood to Bollywood - the latest craze in the Indian film industry is being slim and sexy. Forget Sri Devi and Madhuri Dixit who with their curves and wholesome beauty were the epitome of the classic Indian diva.
At the moment, winds are blowing in the opposite direction. The prerequisites of making a name in Bollywood - a big secret known to all - is to look slim and sexy.
The situation has gone so far that if you're a 'roly-poly' then it's better you start searching for an alternative, for the watch word here is looking thin. Well, on a positive note, no book has mentioned that being in shape is bad. But, like everything else, excess of anything is always harmful!
Anyways, so much so for the aspiring ones. Now lets cut to the B-world.
The B-world is abuzz with actresses' dramatic makeovers. A very recent example of such a transition is that of Kareena Kapoor.
The Jab We Met actress, who has found new love in the arms of Saif Ali Khan, has transformed herself from thunder thighs to fitting into the smallest hot pants. And yes there's no denying that she looks hot in her ultra slim avataar.
"All the girls today, like Kareena is looking fit. It's all due to yoga. She is not anorexic. She is very well-toned. I think it's a requirement, which is based on presence of mind. Today the healthy lifestyle and fitter body is what in everybody's mind," said Shonal Rawat, a supermodel.
Model turned actress Bipasha Basu also made the whole world go crazy over her super fit body which she very proudly showed off in Dhoom 2 and Race.
Following the footsteps were Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Esha Deol who looked hotter than ever after shedding all that extra flab.
The bubbly and effervescent Preity Zinta had every reason to boldly bare her midriff in the film Salaam Namsate.
Well, the 'getting-skinny-with-it' trend is certainly booming in Bollywood. And for now, our girls are content with losing weight, doing power yoga and dramatic makeovers. Hope that this competition doesn't go on any further than this otherwise there will be hell lot to pay.
