Skinny is not in - Ali Zafar

Ali Zafar

Mumbai, Dec 21, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) Actor and music sensation Ali Zafar, who was recently named South Asia’s second most Desirable Man by Eastern Eye, gives us his take on what it means to be sexy !

The actor throws light on the inferiority complex and poor-body image that seems to be rampant amongst Gen-X, asking them to get over the “perfect image” hangover.

Says Ali , “You don’t have to devise your concepts of beauty on people based on what you read or see in the magazines. It may be the most cliché remark but it works every time…dive deeper than the skin and everybody is beautiful in some way or the other…You don’t have to be a Size zero or sport a six pack to be deemed attractive”.

That being the said, the singer-actor does not advocate complacency and encourages people to be fit and healthy.

“I want people to reassess their concept of fitness and not be complacent and de-motivated. A fit human being, in my opinion, is mentally fit first.  Body follows the mind. Physical exercise with right nutrition is certainly a must for everyone. Aspiring to look a certain way and working towards it is important, but not on the cost of being unhappy, during the lack of it. Live. Not survive. “adds Ali.
