The new kid on the block, Sara Ali Khan, has become the talk of the town. From her confident and sharp answers on Koffee With Karan to her impressive performance in Kedarnath, people have been only talking
Sara is certainly a talent to watch out for and is already referred to as the next female superstar. The actress has put in a lot of hard work in coming across effortless in her debut film and we could not be more impressed. Apart from brushing her acting skills, Sara also underwent a dramatic transformation as she lost about 30 kilograms before entering Bollywood.
Talking about her weight loss journey, Sara told SpotboyE that she weighed around 96 kilograms when she was pursuing her graduation at an American University. It took her about one and a half year to shed those extra kilograms. Sara recalls, “It took me about a year-and-half to lose that weight. So, I completed the remaining two years of my graduation in a year so that I can return and start working early. I was always a chubby girl, but after going to the States, for the first two years, I put on a lot of weight and then last year, I burned all those kilos there itself.”
Sharing her experience of living in America, Sara said, “On one hand, you could eat a pizza and on the other, you could have protein. On one hand, you could get chocolate and on the other, you could eat salad. That was it. So, I lost all the weight that I had gained there and lots more by working out and maintaining a disciplined life.”
Sara also revealed that it was her mother Amrita who advised her to lose weight after she expressed her desire of becoming an actress. And when she returned back home, Amrita could not recognize her as she had transformed completely. “She recognized me at the airport only because of my suitcases; I was looking completely different,” said Sara.
After Kedarnath, Sara is now gearing up for the release of her second outing Simmba opposite Ranveer Singh. The film will be hitting the screens on December 28.
