Making of Deepika’s superhot bikini body

Cocktail, starring Deepika Padukone, Saif Ali Khan and Diana Penty, hits the screens today, having created a buzz with its star cast, an interesting director- writer duo and some genuinely slick promos.

Though Diana seems to have created considerable curiosity, it’s Deepika as the slightly badass chick in her sizzling red two- piece and superhot body that has become the talking point of this new release.

Deepika trained incredibly hard with an allnew fitness routine to get that bikini body, and Women’s Health , the newest magazine from the India Today Group, reveals how in its July- August cover story.

Directed by Homi Adjania (of Being Cyrus fame) and scripted by Imtiaz Ali (who made Love Aaj Kal with Saif and Deepika), Cocktail is a love triangle.

Deepika plays the role of Veronica, a reckless, fun- loving girl (remember her namesake from Archie comics?) with a perfect beach body.

The actress shared her kick- ass fitness routine in a chat with Women’s Health : ” I wanted to get into better shape for the movie and people thought I was a bit crazy because I already had an athletic body. But you know what, I wasn’t satisfied — only you know the limits of your body and I knew I could push it further. These are my best years… I absolutely need to look my best now!” Pretty much any workout expert worth her sports bra would agree she has succeeded.

Deepika approached celebrity fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala, who worked out a whole new workout regime for her. She got the actress started on yoga and a combination of pilates and functional training.

“Pilates stretches the body and gives it a lean definition. I have started understanding my body and have also become more conscious of my diet,” the actress said.

She knows the ABCs of healthy living and swears against starving to shape up. “Eat small, eat often. Ask any of my co- stars — I am a foodie. I have a weakness for chocolates but instead of bingeing on them, I just turn to dark chocolate when I have cravings,” Deepika told the magazine.

And now it’s almost like she lives the Women’s Health magazine tagline, Fit Is The New Sexy.

“It’s not true that if you are thin, you are fit. Being an athlete, I believe size doesn’t matter. Body fat is a big contributor to how fit you are.
It’s the cause of those ugly dimples called cellulite,” the actor said.

Deep down, Deepika is an outdoors girl and told Women’s Health readers about her fabulous adventures in South Africa when she and director Homi went white shark diving after Cocktail’s shooting schedule.

“Besides this, I’ve done sky diving and also a course in scuba diving and now I’m professionally accredited. Homi and I are so fond of diving that we have decided to go for a diving trip again,” she said.
