It’s a feat to be successful when success doesn’t really come to you the mainstream way. Malaika Arora being a case in point. With her cult Chaiyya Chaiyya, she introduced the contemporary Bollywood to the power of an item song; something that was further established with Munni Badnaam Hui. While shuttling to and fro between veejaying, modelling or just being an item queen; two elements have been a constant in life—fashion and fitness. While playing a perfect brand ambassador for Reebok’s community platform for fitness UnRest, she shares her take on diet, workouts and the famous gym looks.
