'Celebrities want to be fit, not just skinny', fitness expert Yasmin Karachiwala

In the past two decades, Yasmin Karachiwala has helped sculpt the bodies of celebrities like Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor. The fitness expert says being skinny may have been a trend once upon a time in showbiz, but people are now focussed on becoming fit and strong.

Actors who are open to experimenting with looks have certain deadlines when they have to achieve a certain get-up and body frame for their projects. Does that pressure fall on a fitness expert like her too?

“Like any job, there is always pressure, especially when my clients need to look a certain way for a role in a movie or a song. But we always plan in advance. And luckily, they are all in great shape,” Karachiwala told IANS.However, dismissing the skinny look, Karachiwala said: “Celebrities don’t just want to be skinny but be fit, strong and live a healthy life.”
