Noted icon from Bollywood, actress Malaika Arora took everyone by surprise as she uploaded an up close and personal post about her fitness journey. Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, Malaika had tested positive last year. Through her post, she talked about what a struggle it was to go back to her old fitness routine after recovering from the virus.
In her post, she mentioned, “It broke me physically. Walking 2 steps felt like a herculean task. Sitting up, just stepping out of bed, wanting to stand in my window was a journey in itself. I gained weight, I felt weak, lost my stamina, I was away from my family, and more. I finally tested negative on the 26th of September and I was so grateful that I did. But the weakness stayed. I felt disappointed that my body wasn’t supporting how my mind felt. I was afraid that I’d never gain back my strength. I wondered whether I’d even be able to complete one activity in 24 hours.”

She also talked about the current scenario about her fitness and revealed, “It’s been about 32 weeks since I tested negative and I finally have started to feel like myself again. I’m able to work out the way I used to before I tested positive. I’m able to breathe better and I feel strong both physically and mentally.”
Malaika was last seen in the 2020 show ‘India’s Best Dancer’ as a judge.
