Soha Ali Khan: Health is number one on my priority list

Mumbai– Soha Ali Khan says taking care of health is number one on her priority list.

“There is a saying that health is wealth, so health comes number one my priority list. If you don’t feel good and if you don’t take your health seriously then it’s very difficult to be happy, to be productive and to enjoy your life. I feel staying healthy is important for your career, family or anything — especially to women. We (women) know how important it is,” said Soha, at a product launch of the haircare brand System Professional.

Soha married actor Kunal Kemmu in July 2015 and the couple was blessed with a daughter named Inaaya in 2017. She noted that a woman sacrifices everything for her family though her own health is equally important. “When your skin and hair looks good then you don’t need to worry about make-up and styling. I feel it is important to be healthy, to monitor your diet and to have sound sleep and to look after yourself. I feel women sacrifice a lot and think a lot about their families, kids and parents but it is important also to take out time to think about yourself,” she said.

Talking about her upcoming project, Soha said: “In a week, I will be able to tell you about my next project. I will start work on it around the middle of February. It is a web series but right now I can’t talk about it in detail.”

Soha and Kunal are reportedly also set to co-produce a few projects, one of them being the biopic of renowned lawyer Ram Jethmalani.

“Love, matchmaking, and hosting — ‘What The Love! With Karan Johar’ has given me three things that come naturally to me, all in one go! We’ve all been through difficult phases of self-doubt and low confidence, which often affects our ability to put ourselves out there. Through this show, I want people to look inward and truly love and accept themselves, so that they can find their path to their happily ever after,” Karan said.

Produced by BBC Studios India, the show brings together people who are in search of true love. Karan along with fashion and style expert Maneka Harinsinghani and make-up and hair artist Shaan Muttathil will help in participants’ transformation.

Appreciating the efforts of Mumbai Police, Hrithik said: “Mumbai is one of the best cities to live in and it is because of the Mumbai police force. I couldn’t make it to Umang 2019 last year but this year I made sure that I come here. I am feeling wonderful performing at a stage for all the policemen who work for us day and night and keep us safe.”

He went on to talk about that one role that he has been craving to play.

“In my entire life I have essayed all kinds of roles. However, I haven’t got a chance to play the character of a policeman. I would urge the filmmakers to write a police officer’s role for me because that will be the most challenging role of my life. I am sure I will make it the best role of my life,” said the “Krrish” star at “Umang: A Mumbai Police Welfare Fund’s Initiative”.
