Bipsaha Basu has been charming moviegoers since her debut opposite Akshay Kumar in Ajnabee. Now she’s bringing her star power to fitness and fashion with exercise DVDs and a clothing line.

When a nasty accident saw this former state level goal keeper bed ridden and piled up with extra weight, Yoga and Cross-fit bailed him out. An all natural diet and lifestyle aided the road to recovery.
Actor Shiv Pandit believes in training year-round and not just for roles (as many actors in Bollywood do). A state level football player Shiv has been conscious of his health and fitness ever since his school days in Doon School. A major accident and a torn ligament around eight months ago saw the actor put on almost 14 kilos. Not being able to move his arm, shoulders and legs meant no gym training. “Three months of bed rest is enough to make you feel like a vegetable. Even a run on the treadmill was painful. That’s when I discovered Yoga.” Yoga helped the actor regain not just strength and flexibility but also self confidence.
