Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

The Fitness Fight

Find out how brides have been sweating it out over the past few decades

While getting in shape is a priority for to-be brides, ‘the shape’, so to speak, has been changing over the years. To trace this evolving silhouette, veteran fitness trainers reveal the workouts that have reigned over the last four decades.

1980’s: LOVE FOR THE LEAN

During the 80s, Bollywood was teeming with curvy femme fatales. From Vyjayanthimala Bali to Hema Malini and Asha Parekh, the leading ladies proudly flaunted their hourglass figures during the early 1980s. According to Leena Mogre, director of Leena Mogre’s Fitness, as the decade inched forward, people started favouring a leaner figure like that of Jane Fonda, who revolutionised the fitness scene with her videos and fashion sense.

THE REGIMEN: Alongside the craze for Fonda’s lean physique grew the love for aerobics. “Even I began my career in fitness as an

aerobics instructor because it was so big at that time,” says Mogre, as she recalls the demand for leotards and leg warmers.

THE DIET: This was the decade of fad diets. “Everyone was reading a book called Fit for Life by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond that served up suggestions like ‘eat only fruits till noon’,” shares Mogre.

LEARNING: The obsession with aerobics and a lopsided approach to nutrition took a toll on some people, who went overboard with their fitness routines. “Those who overdid it with aerobics are now stressing about knee replacement surgeries,” says holistic coach Mickey Mehta.
