Kolkata, Sept 11 (Calcutta Tube/IBNS) Popular Tollywood (Bengali Film) actress Koel Mullick has made it to the top with her next-door-girl looks, which she finds ‘much better than size zero’.
Ask her if she stays 100km away from chocs and ice to fit into a 20-inch waistline jeans, the heartthrob of Bengali film-lovers will keep giggling till she has tears in her eyes.
“I forget the entire world if I see biryani and kachauri on the table. I love attending weddings just for food! We have only one life. How long can you thrive on boiled vegetables?” says Koel.
“But of course, if I gorge on food one day, I balance it the next day to maintain my figure….can’t forget I am in show business. Also, balanced lifestyle is very important for everyone,” she adds.
Another thing, Koel can’t do without is ‘sleeping’.
“I love sleeping….as it is, every human being needs to sleep at least six to eight hours a day. But, we actors hardly get adequate sleep. So, I try to fall asleep whenever I get a chance…even if for 5 minutes,” she says.
“Sleep is the best refreshment for me. I don’t feel so good even after work outs as I do after a sound sleep.”
Unlike other actors who spend hours at the gym, Koel says 10-15 minutes of free-hand exercise is good enough for her.
“My fitness routine is very simple. It’s not possible for me to do one-hour cardio or spend 30-minutes on treadmill everyday. I do free-hand exercises…that’s over in 10-15 minutes. Also, I can do them anywhere, even inside make-up rooms in-between shots,” says Koel.
