In Karan Johar’s Koffee with Karan, where she appeared with her father Saif Ali Khan last year, she spoke about her weight and PCOD when Johar showed her old pictures and videos to her.

She said, “I was 96 kgs. ‘It will be almost rude to call you fat,’ is what you (indicating her father, 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.” At this point, she was interrupted by her father, Saif, who asked, “It had nothing to do with the pizzas you used to have?”

She said, “Of course, I used to eat a lot. I did have a good time. I was a regular kid. It made it very hard for me to a) lose weight, and b) the hormone level was very high.”

In an interview to BBC, the Simmba actor said, “I went to Columbia for four years and at the end of the second year, I decided that I really want to act, like I said I have always known, but that realisation coincided with the weigh scale saying that I’m 96 kilos. So, it was a bit difficult. Then it was the senior year of college in America itself that I lost the weight.”

Choreographer and filmmaker Remo D’Souza’s wife recently shared photos appreciating her husband and trainer Praveen Nair for her incredible weight loss.
