Deepika Padukone wants to shows off her svelte figure again
Deepika Padukone, who is known for her washboard abs, sculpted derriere and well-toned pins, has been looking a bit more filled out than usual. At a recent IPL event, the leggy actress nearly spilled out of her figure-hugging dress and gave us a glimpse of what curiously looked like thunder thighs.
Was this new look mandated by her new films, one of which has a voluptuous southern connect? We wondered.
A source close to the actress said: “Maintaining an optimal weight and size is very crucial for Deepika who has been juggling three different kinds of roles in three of her upcoming films. She has to ensure that she fits into the costumes of Ram Leela that Anju Modi has designed for a schedule in Mumbai by the end of the month. But the fact that she has visibly added few inches to her girth has been brought up by her close friends as well.”
So what is Dippy doing? “Her assistant who is in charge of her diet chart has been told to get her the ‘Cocktail’ diet,” says her friend.
Dippy’ followers may recall the actress looked her svelte best in that film, dressed in chic threads that showed off her enviable bod. Dippy’s Cocktail diet included small meals every two hours and quinoa, the wonder cereal from South America.
Incidentally, Dippy’s pins have often been highlighted in her films, whether in hot pants or minis. Both in Ram Leela and Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani, she has scenes in denim shorts, which, according to her trainer, means she has to focus extra hard on keeping them in ship shape. Talk about getting a leg up.
