When Kareena Kapoor Khan became a regular gym visitor post pregnancy, the paparazzi made sure to religiously follow her there every single day. Not a day went by when Bebo missed the gym and not a single “gym look” went uncaptured by the paps.
I guess it’s safe to say the gym looks became a trend which were here to stay after Kareena unintentionally made it a thing. Thereafter, Malaika Arora, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Mira Kapoor and several other celebs have often been #SPOTTED pre or post workout. Gyms were suddenly the new red carpet!
In a recent interview with Janhvi, Rajeev Masand brought up the current rage, of which Janhvi is also a part. She is photographed in her workout attire almost everyday and is baffled by the fact that people on social media double tap and/or are interested in looking at someone merely going to the gym.
It’s a big deal. I don’t understand why anyone would want to see me in my gym shorts going to the gym every day. The fact that anyone comes to click it and opens it on their social media in the morning to see it and likes it also, is baffling to me.
She further said that fans often tell her they really admire the way she dresses up for the gym and understands the paparazzi culture. But she currently needs to be regular with her workouts as her upcoming roles require a certain level of physical transformation.
I swear I’m doing more with my life. I’ve been shooting non-stop in the past year. A lot the films I’ve worked on required me to change my weight and have a certain type of physicality, although I’ve been looking the same in all those (gym) pictures. So I’ve been regular at the gym. But I’ve also been shooting almost every day of the last year
All the best for all that and much more, Janhvi! Hopefully your gym looks continue to inspire us to look better and get fitter.
