We caught up with Arti Singh on Instagram live chat, recently. The actress, who was last seen on reality show Bigg Boss 13, got candid on various topics during the chat. From her weight loss, marriage plans, kitchen duties to viral challenges on social media- Arti shared her views on all.
Excerpts from our conversation:
Your fitness transformation is making news on social media. What motivated you to lose weight?
It's a double workout for me these days as I am staying all alone. So, I have to do all the household chores- right from cooking to cleaning and washing things, along with my usual workout routine. Honestly, I am working really hard on myself. It's not for the first time that I have lost weight. Actually in the last 6-7 months, I had put on kilos as I went to Paris and there I ate a lot. After coming back to India, I went straight inside the Bigg Boss house and indulged in no workout. But definitely it was always my plan that I will lose weight. I want to work and for that you need to be fit and look good.
So who actually hit the gym religiously inside the Bigg Boss 13 house?
Sidharth Shukla used to workout a lot. Initially, Rashami Desai, Shefali Bagga too excercised. Shuru shuru mein sabme josh tha but Sidharth and Asim worked out till the end.
Nowadays, you often flaunt your cooking skills on social media. However we hardly saw you in kitchen during Bigg Boss. Why?
When Rashami and Devoleena were there, so they made food as both were really good at it. However, when Devoleena got eliminated, I made food for almost one and half month but I was shown less in kitchen may be because when I cooked there used to be no fights. Na rotiyon ke upar aur na do paratho ke upar koi tamashe hote the. So, agar drama hoga to aap zyada dikhoge aur main drama karti nahi thi, shayad isliye I was not seen in the kitchen.
What is your take on social media challenges?
I think it's a good idea as people have hardly thing to do at home during the lockdown.
What kind of challenge would you like to pass on and who will you nominate?
I would like to see log ek minute mein kitni skipping kar sakte hain and the people I would nominate will of course be Karan Singh Grover, Bipasha Basu, Mahhi Vij, Krushna Abhishek Kashmeera Shah, Ayyaz Khan, Janat and Samir Soni.
And who do you think among them will nail it?
It will be Karan for sure, the way he takes fitness seriously I think wahi baazi maar jaayega.
Lockdown inside Bigg Boss house or outside which is more challenging?
I think that was more challenging. If you felt low or upset inside the BB house, you had nowhere to go, but here, at least you can pick up the phone and speak to your loved ones and vent.
How is your equation now with other housemates?
I talk to everybody as I didn't have an animosity with anyone inside. I am in touch with everyone. In fact, before lockdown I met Mahira, Paras, Vishal, when Shefali had kept a get-together. Mera kabhi kisike saath aisa nahi hua ki main bahar aakar unse mil ya baat nahi kar paaun.
Are you now looking for a partner to get married?
All my family members want me to settle down and I am also OK with that.
