One couldn’t have missed seeing actor Sandeepa Dhar’s dance covers on YouTube and Instagram. From Kamariya to Tu Ne O Rangeele and Chalti Hai Kya 9 se 12, the actor has done justice in such a way that it’s hard to take your eyes off her as she dances on the tunes of these Bollywood songs. “I love to dance and this is a fun thing we did which turned out to go viral,” adds Dhar who learns the choreography in an hour and then shoots the song. When we spoke to her, she spoke to us about her fitness and beauty secrets. Here are excerpts from her candid conversation.

Talking about food, is following a diet a crucial part of your fitness? How do you follow?

I do MMA. Martial arts I got addicted due to a movie that trained me in it. I go for it thrice a week. I also love yoga. If you want to stay fit, do 108 Surya Namaskar a day and that’s enough. Start with ten and then keep increasing it. I make sure of doing them everyday. When it comes to my eating habits, I don’t eat anything before working out. My mornings start with a glass of water and then for breakfast I have a bowl of fruits or green smoothie or avocado and egg. I eat everything, I’m a foodie but don’t go to extremes.

When it comes to beauty treatments, do you go for home remedies?

Are there few things you can share with the readers? I’m a very basic person and usually opt for natural things. Going overboard is not my style. In terms of beauty my favourite is egg white mask. Take one egg white and beat it, leave it for 30 minutes and wash it off. Do this every 10 days to keep your skin tightened. I also swear by organic coconut oil. It’s the best night cream and makeup remover. It has done wonders for me. You can apply it on your face in the night and see magic in a month.
