Deepika Doesn't Believe In Being Size Zero

A self-confessed fitness freak, Padukone feels that regular workouts, yoga, healthy eating and positive thinking is what makes her look fit.

"I think every body's body type is different and it reacts differently to different work outs. It is important for you to understand what suits your body and exercise accordingly," she said.

"I do a lot of yoga. Although I eat everything but at the same time I know there are certain kinds of food that I put on weight with, so I try to avoid them. I think eating healthy, regular workouts and positive thinking can help anybody look better," she added.

Unlike other Bollywood actresses, Deepika doesn't believe in being size zero. "I don't think it is healthy to be size zero. The Indian body is not cut out to be size zero. It is always nice to look healthy," Padukone said.

Deepika Padukone's Link Ups

Dimpled beauty Deepika Padukone is no exception in the bollywood industry, this willowy damsel has been linked up with a host of celebs and co-stars. Deepika's and Ranbir's love was for real and they were bollywood's hottest couple but fate didn't support them and they had a break up. Deepika was also linked up with Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Farhan Akhtar and Shahid Kapoor. Recently Deepika’s appearance at an IPL match saw her cheering for Royal Challengers Bangalore along with liquor baron Vijay Mallya's son Siddharth that courted rumors of a link-up between the two.

Deepika is unperturbed by the rumours and says she has learnt to accept the fact that all this comes with the work she does. "It does not matter if you link me up with someone because I know that I am leading a life I want. I have my guy friends with whom I go out like everybody else. I understand that it comes with the work I do and I am fine with it. I am very happy with my life and the work I am doing."

Deepika was tagged as the lucky mascot for Mallya's IPL team Banglore Royal Challengers. But she refused to take the tag saying, "I think if the team is playing well the credit should go to all the players. It is very unfair to say that I am the lucky mascot and give me the credit."

Deepika Padukone - I have a good equation with Ranbir Kapoor

The break up news of Bollywood sizzling actress Deepika Padukone and handsome hunk Ranbir Kapoor has been in headlines since long.

The commercial of a soft drink had both the actors but after the break up, Deepika was not seen with Ranbir in a recent soft drink commercial. But the lady denied all rumors saying that she is comfortable working with Ranbir.

Deepika said, “Just because we haven’t done a commercial together doesn’t mean that we are never going to do a movie together. I still have a contract with the soft drink brand for four months and have shot a new campaign with them. Earlier too, when I was doing the ad with him, Ranbir was paired with another girl. So, I have not been replaced by anyone. The brand decides whom to take for their commercials, so there is nothing to read between the lines.”

She added, “Ranbir and I know very well where we stand today. We will never let good movies slip out of our hands. It’s just a matter of time that I act with him. We need the right movie to act together and it will happen. I have a good equation with Ranbir.”

The versatile actress is also sad about her frequent link ups with people specifying which she said, “It takes a lot for a woman to go out on a date with a man. When I sit and watch a match with someone, people say I am dating him. If I go for dinner with someone else, people say I’m dating that person. I have a family who read all this and for a girl these reports of randomly becoming someone’s girlfriend one day and someone else’s the next day don’t go well.”
