Who is Sara Ali Khan & How She Lost All the Weight?

  • 29 Jan 2019

Instagram is her playground! Fashion, style and gossip columns in Bollywood magazines scream her name. She's an inspiration for many young girls. She oozes out style and confidence. Her cheerful and spontaneous persona caught the attention of the media and before we know it, she was being interviewed everywhere. 

Sara Ali Khan is the talk of the town! Especially, after her shocking and dramatic weight loss and her emergence as a stylish Bollywood icon. Like a classic story of a duckling turning into a beautiful swan, the 25-year-old shifted all the attention onto her with a drastic change in her style, poise, and overall look. How did all these materialise and what's her story? Read on!

Childhood of A Rising Star

With only two of her movies (Kedarnath and Simmba) released so far, she's already a huge star in Bollywood with a tremendous social media followings and paparazzi swarming her to get a glimpse of her personal and daily life. Born to Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan and his ex-wife (12 years his senior) Amrita Singh, her life was never short of interesting twists and turns even before.

After her parent's divorce, Sara stayed on with her mother and pursued her studies to Columbia University, where she battled with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), a hormonal disorder which causes excessive weight gain, hair growth on the face and body, irregular menstruation or even can lead to infertility. 

Battling PCOD & Obesity

In a recent interview at Koffee with Karan, in which she appeared with her father Saif, Sara opened up: “I was 96 kgs. ‘It will be almost rude to call you fat,’ is what you (referring to Saif Ali Khan) said. Actually, I had PCOD. I still do. And, because of that, I think I put on the amount of weight that I did. Because of that, there was also like a hormone problem.” 

However, father Saif seemed to think otherwise and questioned, “It had nothing to do with the pizzas you used to have?”

Since her younger days, she was already a big fan of pizzas, cakes, ice-creams, and chocolates. She just loved eating! This new condition didn't make it easier for her. She gained so much weight during her first two years of higher education that her own mother Amrita couldn't recognize her in the airport when she returned home. That's it! She realised she needed to do something about it.

Weight Loss Journey

Sara completed her studies early at Columbia and focused on weight loss and a healthier lifestyle. She understood that in order to make it big in Bollywood (as she developed a passion for acting), all the excess fats need to go. With hard work and clean eating, she shed about 30kg and transformed into the Bollywood beauty adored by her fans now.

Style Craze shared her diet and we think it's pretty simple to keep up with:

Breakfast – Egg whites and toast or idlis
Lunch – Chapatis, daal, vegetables, salad, and fruits
Snacks – Upma (Savory vegetable semolina)
Dinner – A light dinner with chapatis and green veggies
Pre-workout – Muesli or oats with fruits
Post-Workout – Protein shake, tofu, salad or legumes

Most of her journey was also spent in the gym, as she tried out different kinds of workouts, from pilates to aerobics. She worked out every day saying, 'running to Bollywood music on the treadmill as fast as I could'.

Take a look at her workout videos:
