Ka­reena says health, fit­ness top pri­or­ity for her

‘I am very aware of my sur­round­ings and the en­vi­ron­ment we live in. Be­ing a mother, I am ex­tremely par­tic­u­lar about hav­ing a clean home and mind­ful of the dust and in­door air pol­lu­tion we are sub­ject­ing our­selves to in our daily lives’

MUM­BAI: Ac­tress Ka­reena Kapoor Khan, who has taken to ex­er­cis­ing in­doors to bat­tle the ris­ing lev­els of air pol­lu­tion, says health and it­ness is of ut­most im­por­tance to her and her fam­ily.

“I am very aware of my sur­round­ings and the en­vi­ron­ment we live in. Be­ing a mother, I am ex­tremely par­tic­u­lar about hav­ing a clean home and mind­ful of the dust and in­door air pol­lu­tion we are sub­ject­ing our­selves to in our daily lives. Health and it­ness is of top pri­or­ity for me and my fam­ily,” Ka­reena said in a state­ment.

The ac­tor en­dorses Honey­well, which of­fers in­door air puri­ica­tion so­lu­tions. The brand has come up with a ‘Healthy Sleep’ cam­paign, which draws at­ten­tion to the fact that even while sleep­ing, we in­hale the pol­luted air which is full of germs, dust and PM2.5 par­ti­cles, which is why sound sleep alone is not al­ways a healthy one.

Pro­mot­ing the thought that a healthy sleep is more im­por­tant than a ‘good night’s sleep’ for an ac­tive, more pro­duc­tive and a health­ier life­style, Ka­reena said: “To tackle in­door air pol­lu­tion, I have my house aired out reg­u­larly, apart from hav­ing plants placed in­doors and trust air puri­iers to pro­vide clean breath­able air for me and my fam­ily.”

“Given the poor air qual­ity out­doors, I have taken to ex­er­cis­ing in­doors in the safe conines of clean air. Even though I en­joy yoga as it brings me close to na­ture, I would rather ex­er­cise in a con­trolled en­vi­ron­ment and in­hale clean air,” added Ka­reena, who is a mother to Taimur Ali Khan who will turn 2 this De­cem­ber.

Ka­reena says she is happy that she did Veere Di Wed­ding, a com­ing-of-age story about four fe­male friends.

“This ilm is quite dif­fer­ent from what I have done pre­vi­ously. While the movies I have acted in had a male lead, this story re­volves around four girls who are at dif­fer­ent stages in their lives and their friend­ship,” Ka­reena said in a state­ment.

“From the mo­ment I read the script, I wanted to be a part of the ilm. I am so glad we made a movie based on friend­ship like this. Veere Di Wed­ding is a movie that ev­ery­one can en­joy with the en­tire fam­ily. There is some­thing for ev­ery­one in it,” she added.

Di­rected by Shashanka Ghosh, the ilm is about the lives of four friends who deal with the tri­als and tribu­la­tions re­gard­ing fam­ily ac­cep­tance, mar­riage and so­ci­etal per­cep­tions in the modern-day world.
