The Real Deal

You must have heard about the “low carb” hype being discussed around you all the time. There is a small portion of the trend that is actually sensible and the rest is bunk.

During the nineties, these actresses were of a normal healthy weight. Madhuri Dixit fans admired her bulky torso, need we remind you of one Dhak-Dhak number, versus Kajol’s boyish frame ala Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and finally Karisma’s sexy but gangly slenderness.

And while they weren’t considered fit, they were definitely standard in size, well nourished and such weights were attainable. But that was then. Post the new millennium, a new phenomenon took over Bollywood; one that saw the introduction of a new fitter Bollywood.  Read More
