The obsession with size-zero and extreme fitness had been an unhealthy trend the Bollywood adopted from the West. The idolization of skinny-fit physique has often led to unhealthy dietary practices among the celebrities. That said, there is a common prejudice against Bollywood celebs over extreme diets and strict meal plans. What if we tell you they are just like us, often love to gorge on their favourite comfort food or enthusiastic to indulge in some yummy street food occasionally?
You'd be surprised at the cheat meals, binge days and their favourite sweet treats. Whether they're on a diet, following a strict regime or making a physique for a particular role, they always manage to squeeze in some of their favourite foods. Here's a look at who you think may gorge only on salads and what they actually indulge in:
Anushka Sharma loves food, despite the fact that her physique may not indicate it.
