Amisha Patel flaunts a perfect 10 figure
Prithwish Ganguly | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; February 5, 2011)
Amisha Patel’s sensuousness was never in doubt, but like fine wine, she has become sexier now. BT bumped into Amisha, who enjoyed getting ready for a hot photo-shoot. And, boy she did get the temperature to soar. Effortless and relaxed, she made Dabboo Ratnani’s shutter go crazy about her charm, body and raw sensuality.
The pretty actress admits that she is in her best shape ever. “I’m sexier than ever right now and I can feel it. During Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic (the 2008 film in which she wore a yellow bikini and seduced Saif Ali Khan underwater) I was in good shape. But I wanted to better the standard that I had already set on screen. I followed a healthy diet chart and worked out regularly. I didn’t kill myself exercising and I don’t believe in dieting. One has to eat right and healthy,” she says.
Just before she struck a pose in her ganjee and shorts, Amisha said, “It’s this sexy girl-next-door look that I have. I’m not in your face obvious. It’s a look that a friend of mine came up with especially for me when I went to a party wearing a pair of shorts and a tee.”
While many B-town divas have an international body type, which is the size-zero, Amisha says, “I don’t believe in size zero. I believe in having curves. A man’s body is different from a woman’s and women should have curves. That’s hot! A woman shouldn’t be thin as a stick More >

• A Bollywood debut with Salman Khan and a superhit OST. You couldn’t have asked for a better platform.
Yes. I think it’s the perfect venture in which I am able to perform, look good, and I am opposite a superstar. It is Arbaaz’s first film as a producer so he isn’t leaving any stone unturned. A very talented director like Abhinav Kashyap is making it. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
• You never wanted to enter Bollywood. Why this sudden decision?
There were no signs of me actually getting into acting, I never thought of myself as an actor. Salman spotted me at Amrita Arora’s sangeet, where I was dressed in Indian and where I probably looked the part of Rajjo. So Salman said we have found our girl. And once I heard the script I couldn’t say no either.
• You have lost a lot of weight. The transformation from fat to fit is apparent.
I was anything but fit. Most credit goes to Salman but there were a lot of people around telling me to lose weight. So it started off as a conscious effort to lose weight and maintain my health but eventually when I started seeing the results, I started looking better and I started getting more confident and it translated into what I am today. However my gymming and dieting are still on, they are part of a never-ending process.Raju Shinde

The Kapoor kudis are both on diet…
MEENA IYER Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; June 16, 2010)
Spotted: Karisma Kapoor dressed in a bright red shirt, with kohl-lined eyes, huge solitaries blazing her ears, ordering herself a fancy meal at a new hip roadside cafe on Pali Hill.
Lolo had stepped out alone, yes, minus her two kids and her husband Sanjay Kapur. Her intention was simple — to spoil herself silly. As the rain poured down hard outside, Lolo decided to dig into a meal of her choice.
The reason this actress, who is usually very careful with what she eats, was eating to her heart’s content is because she goes into a strict diet for the next 11 days. On June 25, when Lolo turns 36, she wants to get into the designer outfit her younger sister Kareena has ordered for her.
While Lolo was dining alone at her favourite food joint, Bebo who is shooting Golmaal-3 in Hyderabad, was sulking. “God I’m missing Mumbai and I’m missing spending time with Lolo and my nephew,” she said.
Bebo who calls Karisma her size zero inspiration, had a surprise revelation to make. “For once, things are the exact opposite for the two of us. Lolo is trying to lose her post-natal fat; and I’m trying to put on a little weight. I want to be perfectly rounded. I’m bored of being too thin. And I actually enjoy eating at this neighbourhood cafe where you bumped into Lolo.”
