While we've talked about Kareena's inspiring weight loss journey, and how her team (Namrata Purohit and Rujuta Diwekar) helps her stay on track, there are some interesting revelations about her girl squad and how they played their part in the process. In conversation with Mid-Day, Kareena admitted that her best friend Amrita Arora Ladak has always been by her side, motivating her throughout her journey to fitness. 

\"A special chapter in a book [on my life would] need to be dedicated to her. Without her push, and her constant care, this would not have been possible. She'd remind me to eat healthy, urge me to train, and even offer to do so together. She was always there while I was putting on my sneakers and fitting into my tights, telling me, 'C'mon, we have to do this.\"

We can't say we're surprised, these two make working out look so much fun!

But just like any other group, there are friends who push you to your goals, and then there are others who spoil and pamper you. Kareena's sister Karisma Kapoor, and her friend Malaika Arora were guilty of this, especially when Kareena was pregnant with Taimur.

\"Through my pregnancy, we would go to restaurants to eat. I'd eat two entire pizzas, and then the desserts, and eventually they would be tempted. They started putting on weight because of me. Every morning, I'd wake up and say, 'I want to eat samosas with motichur laddo'. And they'd be like, 'Oh God, we can't do that.' I'd urge them to eat, and eventually, they'd relent. So they've done that with me, and even brought me back to shape. Having a good friend is so important in this journey.\"

Thinking about catching up with your squad? Same.

We caught up with the actor on fashion trends, her go-to outfit and the most treasured item in her closet. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nCosmo: What did you think of Forever 21’s latest collection?\r\n\r\nKareena Kapoor Khan: “I love it! This collection has a lot of dressy pieces, perfect for the party season and even otherwise. I can see a lot of stuff that I’d like to pick up!”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: What are your wardrobe staples this season? \r\n\r\nKKK: “A black, shimmery dress, a pair of distressed jeans, a jacket or a blazer, and a nice sweater.” \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: And your favourite trend?\r\n\r\nKKK: “I’m actually obsessed with boots right now. I have over 100 pairs! They’re perfect for winter, but if I had my way, I’d wear them the whole year round and pack them for every trip, everywhere.”\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nC: What’s the one trend you can’t wait to get done with?\r\n\r\nKKK: “Um, I can’t think of any. Anyway, I don’t stick to trends...I make my own.” [Laughs]\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: What’s the most treasured item in your closet?\r\n\r\nKKK: “It would have to be my denim collection. I never throw away my jeans. Ever. If you consider heirloom pieces, then it would be my wedding outfit. It has been passed down between three generations—first my mum-in-law’s mum-in-law wore it, then my mum-in-law, and then I wore it. It’s something I will treasure forever.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: So how many pair of jeans do you own?\r\n\r\nKKK: “More than 50...easily.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: And an item of clothing you regret buying?\r\n\r\nKKK: “All the bodycon dresses in my closet! Because now, when I look at them, they make me cringe. I’m like, ‘Ugh, I can’t wear these!’. You know, after having a baby, I just can’t!”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: Have you ever been uncomfortable for fashion?\r\n\r\nKKK: “I’m the kind of a person who just won’t wear it if I feel uncomfortable. I would just put my foot down, and tell them honestly that I can’t.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: When not working, how long do you take to get dressed?\r\n\r\nKKK: “You’ll be shocked...I can get dressed in under 20 minutes! My family and friends are always surprised. They all say, ‘Bebo is always the first one to get ready!”.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: What’s your go-to outfit and make-up for a night-out?\r\n\r\nKKK: “A pair of jeans with a nice jumper—maybe black, with some sequins—always works. The combination looks really chic. As for make-up, it’ll always be kajal—I love my eyes nicely kohled.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: Do you have a beauty hack?\r\n\r\nKKK: “There’s no hack really, I have genetically good skin. But I make sure I moisturise it well and always stay hydrated.”\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: What are the top three products in your beauty bag?\r\n\r\nKKK: “A primer, moisturiser, and a bottle of water...I drink a lot of water.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: If you could have a warning sign, what would it say?\r\n\r\nKKK: “Red hot!”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: What makes Kareena Kapoor Khan angry ?\r\n\r\nKKK: “When she doesn’t get her food on time! I’m such a Punjabi and a big foodie... So whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner, it has to be on time or I can’t function.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: Who knows you the best?\r\n\r\nKKK: “Saif [Ali Khan]...hopefully”.

A source tells Us Weekly, \"Meghan feels free. She has never been happier. She’s happy to be out of London. She was surprised at how quickly everything happened.\" Never been happier, you guys!!!\r\n\r\nThat said, it does seem as though Harry still has some mixed emotions about stepping back from royal life.

Unfortunately, that wasn't possible. I've accepted this, knowing that it doesn't change who I am or how committed I am. But I hope that helps you understand what it had to come to, that I would step my family back from all I have ever known, to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.\r\n\r\nHopefully, Meghan and Harry get what they're looking for from this transition!\r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":null,"field_meta_keyword":null,"image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-01/Screenshot%202020-01-26%20at%201.12.14%20AM.png?93hd13WXVq_YNAuAt1mZnrKqdf1gE9M6","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/celebrity/features/a19456/meghan-markle-feels-free-and-has-never-been-happier-after-her-exit-royal","created":"26 January 2020 ","time_created":"2020-01-26T11:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Celebrity","field_section_url":"/celebrity","field_content_type":"Features","notes":"http://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/celebs/a30662067/meghan-markle-feels-free-after-step-down-royal-family/","notes_syn":"Cosmopolitan","userData_node":null,"userData":null,"field_first_name":null,"authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"19453","title":"Please Allow Us to Explain Why the “Dolly Parton Challenge” Is All Over Your Instagram Feed","field_dek":"From Priyanka Chopra to Karan Johar and Ellen DeGeneres, errrybody is doing it!\r\n","modified":"2020-01-25 11:50:14","status":"1","field_full_dek":"It seems like every day, there’s a brand-new challenge going viral on social media.

LinkedIn Dolly looked super profesh in a fitted, checked blazer, while Tinder Dolly was dressed up in a super-sexy Playboy costume. “Get you a woman who can do it all,” she captioned the post, which couldn’t fit the bill better if she tried. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nView this post on Instagram\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nGet you a woman who can do it all 😉\r\n\r\nA post shared by Dolly Parton (@dollyparton) on Jan 21, 2020 at 10:02am PST\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nNow, since errrybody loves Dolly, celebrities in America (even Cosmo US) joined in, making the challenge go viral.

It’s an inbuilt mechanism that activates itself on its own and no amount of requests for a smile or a candid laugh can take my pout away from me! It’s a part of my lip till fillers replace it...It’s now a part of my personality! I suck my cheeks, squint my eyes...pretend I am Brad Pitt ( in my head) and Voila!

I mean thank GOD, because a lot of Hollywood's golden couples have called it quits, and I was running out of people to ship together. But thanks to Brad and Jen's epic hand-holding moment during Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards, I don't think that will be a problem for me (or anyone else), anytime soon.\r\n\r\nContinuing the narrative of Brad and Jen Please Get Back Together 2020 is a juicy new tidbit courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, whose source claims that Brad has made a point to tell Jennifer that he's sorry for the slip-ups he made while they were together. Since then, Brad and Jen have apparently put that drama in the past...which is why their \"friendship\" is thriving right now!\r\n\r\n\"Brad is completely sober now and is in such a different place than he was when they were together,\" the source said. \"Brad is truly an introspective guy who has worked hard on himself. He has apologized to her for many things he felt were his issues in their relationship. He truly takes ownership of his mistakes and that has changed their relationship with each other today. They both have moved on.\"\r\n\r\nNow, Brad and Jen's relationship has grown significantly ever since they both ended their marriages—Brad with his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, and Jennifer with her ex-husband, Justin Theroux. \"Right now they just love and adore each other and have been much closer friends since their divorces,\" a second source told ET of Jen and Brad. \"They have a very mature relationship that has evolved over time because they both have experienced marriages that didn’t work out.\"\r\n\r\nWelp, if ya need me...I will be spiraling over \"they just love and adore each other\" and re-lighting my Brad and Jen reconciliation prayer circle candles for the millionth time.

She says, \"I feel people are getting extremely conscious of their health, their fitness regime and diet. Everyone is not only trying to look good but also feel good and healthy. As the awareness of healthy living has increased, I find that more people are focusing on themselves, regardless of how busy their schedule is. Most people are trying to find that little time in the day to squeeze in a workout, and eating healthy meals.\"\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSo, here's what her own fitness regime entails:\r\n\r\nCosmo: With your hectic travel schedule, how do you maintain a fitness regime?\r\n\r\nNamrata Purohit: Regardless of wherever I am, for me, work out is a must. If I am visiting a city I usually book multiple fitness classes. If I am in a remote location, I do opt for more outdoor activities as well as some bodyweight exercises. Waking up early is the key to fit all my activities in.\r\n\r\nCosmo: Please share a few exercises that those with busy travel schedules can include in their workout.\r\n\r\nNP: No matter where you are it is always easy to squeeze in a walk or a jog if nothing else. There are also multiple bodyweight exercises and even cardiovascular based exercises that one can do in their room. Jumping jacks, high knees, skipping are some cardiovascular exercises, push-ups, ab preps, obliques, planks, squats, lunges, hip lifts, side-lying leg raises are some examples of bodyweight exercises.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCosmo: Do you think there are some beauty benefits to working out?\r\n\r\nNP: Working out improves blood circulation which improves the health of the skin. Regular exercise improves the circulatory and respiratory system, improving oxygenation and overall health of the body. Working out also helps reduce stress, which in return helps improve the health of your body, skin, and hair. \r\n\r\nCosmo: It is said that 70 per cent, diet 30 per cent exercise. Do you agree? \r\n\r\nNP: Diet and exercise are both extremely important and go hand in hand if you want to be fit and healthy. Just by following a nutritious plan you can not only look healthy but feel clean too but exercising is important if you want to be fit, which includes being strong, flexible, having good endurance, balance etc.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCosmo: Do tell us about your diet- are there any do's and don'ts that you follow.\r\n\r\nNP: I eat 3 main meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner and 2 small meals in between. I start with a hearty breakfast and end with a light dinner. I usually try to complete my dinner before 7-7:30 pm. \r\n\r\nCosmo: Can you tell us 5 important tweaks that can be made to our diet to make sure that our workout gains show up?\r\n\r\nNP: - Eat enough not less\r\n\r\n- Drink enough water\r\n\r\n- Don't skip meals \r\n\r\n- Eat at the right time\r\n\r\n- Make sure you are getting all the required nutrients\r\n\r\n \r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"cosmo, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, cosmo.in, Namrata Purohit, namrata purohit, celebrity trainers, bollywood fitness, fitness regime, bollywood pilates, malaika arora fitness, malaika arora khan, kareena kapoor fitness, kareena kapoor khan, celebrity fitness routines, yoga excercises, bollywood yoga, janhvi kapoor, janhvi excercises, kareena excercises, celebrity excercises, celebrity diet, weight loss plan, celebrity weight loss, belly fat, flat stomach, thigh gap diet","field_meta_keyword":"cosmo, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, cosmo.in, Namrata Purohit, namrata purohit, celebrity trainers, bollywood fitness, fitness regime, bollywood pilates, malaika arora fitness, malaika arora khan, kareena kapoor fitness, kareena kapoor khan, celebrity fitness routines, yoga excercises, bollywood yoga, janhvi kapoor, janhvi excercises, kareena excercises, celebrity excercises, celebrity diet, weight loss plan, celebrity weight loss, belly fat, flat stomach, thigh gap diet","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-01/Untitled%20design%20%282%29_0.png?WgUYlsO9FDaVHKReEj8SXdP76DlVXw4d","field_editory_by":"By","path":"/celebrity/features/a19420/cosmoexclusive-5-minutes-bollywoods-fave-pilates-girl-namrata-purohit","created":"23 January 2020 ","time_created":"2020-01-23T13:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Celebrity","field_section_url":"/celebrity","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":"630","userData":{"uid":"630","field_first_name":"Arpita Kala","editor_sef":"/author/630/arpita"},"field_first_name":null,"authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"19426","title":"7 Photographs That Take You Inside Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas's Stunning L.A.

I just like my lipsticks to blend well and I never use just one colour because that is so boring. So, I mix two or three colours to make my own shade whatever suits my mood or clothes at that time. Some of my favourite shades to mix are MAC Ruby Red and Faux Satin.\r\n\r\nCosmo: What are your beauty resolutions for 2020?\r\n\r\nSS: Wow, I never thought about that!  But I do want to concentrate on my health in 2020. I want to be absolutely healthy and get really good skin by keeping my system clean so that I don’t even need to apply makeup! Last year, I had a lot of breakouts and I ended up applying more makeup than I usually do. Even though I like makeup because I love creating art and it's like I am painting my face, but I would definitely like to spend less time getting ready. I would like to feel healthy from inside and stick to a more vegetarian diet this year.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCosmo: What is your fitness mantra to keep in shape? \r\n\r\nSS: I always give due importance to my fitness regime. On days that I don’t workout, I just don’t feel right. The key is to not force anything and go with the flow. When it's not forced, that makes it rather enjoyable. \r\nI have learnt the hard way that we exercise only on the superficial parts of our body. Over the last few years, I’ve faced so many injuries and I got to know about so many smaller muscles in our body that require strengthening from time to time. So, try training your smaller muscles too and keep up the strength.\r\n\r\nYou can do a lot of resistance band exercises at home. Also,  strengthen your core and do cardio! It really enhances your metabolism and energy. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"cosmo, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, cosmo.in, Shama Sikander, shama sikander, James Milliron, dubai, yeh meri life, bollywood, bollywood beauty, celebrity fitness, celebrity scandals, celebrity workout, shama plastic surgery, rizwan sikander, bollywood plastic surgery, bollywood plastic surgeon, celebrity plastic surgery, kylie lip kit, bollywood lipsticks, best indian lipsticks, best indian lip shades, bollywood makeup, celebrity makeup","field_meta_keyword":"cosmo, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, cosmo.in, Shama Sikander, shama sikander, James Milliron, dubai, yeh meri life, bollywood, bollywood beauty, celebrity fitness, celebrity scandals, celebrity workout, shama plastic surgery, rizwan sikander, bollywood plastic surgery, bollywood plastic surgeon, celebrity plastic surgery, kylie lip kit, bollywood lipsticks, best indian lipsticks, best indian lip shades, bollywood makeup, celebrity makeup","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-01/Untitled%20design%20%281%29_2.png?TbMkRnEJuMpgzGL2y0jh9uWl2CrBbtYB","field_editory_by":"By","path":"/celebrity/features/a19432/cosmoexclusive-5-minutes-shama-sikander","created":"21 January 2020 ","time_created":"2020-01-21T12:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Celebrity","field_section_url":"/celebrity","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":"630","userData":{"uid":"630","field_first_name":"Arpita Kala","editor_sef":"/author/630/arpita"},"field_first_name":null,"authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"19422","title":"\"I Can Predict How 2020 Will Turn Out For You\"","field_dek":"Cosmo Ed Nandini Bhalla shares 11 questions and good-for-you habits to help you be happier in the New Year. \r\n","modified":"2020-01-20 14:43:34","status":"1","field_full_dek":"Modification: I can’t quite prophesize that you’ll meet a dashing dude in May or sip wine in Positano in October, but I can reveal if you’ll be happier in the New Year. How? Well, based on how you’ve spent the last 365 days. To know your future, go through the series of good-for-you habits ahead, and confirm if they are already a part of your life. The more yesses you reply with, the more fulfilled you will feel next year. And if you end up with several nays, that’s okay, because the science-backed pointers below can be put into action immediately, to ensure your year is a wonderful one. Ready? Answer the following statements with a yes or no...\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n1. I Practice Gratitude Daily\r\nWhen you’re thankful for the good in your life, you feel more positive. Which makes people want to hang with you. Which means you’ll be less stressed and surrounded by more friends.\r\n2. I’ve Taken Up a New Hobby\r\nStudies prove that people with hobbies tend to be happier and have lower heart rates. Plus, having a favourite pastime improves your thinking and problem-solving abilities.  \r\n\r\n3. I’ve Been Consistent With Exercise\r\nThose exercise-induced endorphins, they’ll give you a high without the hangover. Studies prove that regular exercise—even just once a week for 10 minutes—boosts mood and helps reduce symptoms of depression.\r\n4. I’ve Become Nutrient Conscious Mom was right: a balanced meal really is the secret to a better life. When you eat healthier, you feel more energetic, mentally sharper, and your skin is glowier (a critical reason to smile, you’ll agree).\r\n\r\n5. I Care Less About What People Think\r\nAn approval addiction hurts your self-esteem. Sure, care about the opinions of those who truly matter, but not the judgements of strangers, acquaintances, that friend from high school, or randos on the Internet.\r\n6. I’ve Let Go of Perfection\r\nDo have a desire to excel and do your best; don’t set unrealistic standards that will lead to feelings of inadequacy.\r\n7. I’ve Been Giving Back\r\nAccording to several studies, giving money or help makes us far happier\r\nthan receiving.\r\n8. I Have Fun Plans for April 2020 \r\n\r\nScheduling joy or fun activities in the future means you’ll always have something to look forward to.\r\n9. I Can Say No Without Guilt\r\nYour time is important, you can’t do it all. Saying no to things you don’t enjoy or don’t have the time for means you’re left with hours to focus on the important stuff. PS: according to science, people pleasers are more anxious than those who simply say no to events or opportunities they don’t want to indulge in. \r\n10. I’m Not an Insta Addict\r\nAn obsession with your newsfeed can make you depressed. Limit your social media time and when you do swipe, remember that not everything you see on your feed is real. While you’re at it, follow some motivational accounts to make your browsing work harder for you.\r\n11. I’ve Ditched the Energy Vampires\r\nPeople who drain you, who make you feel bad about yourself, who hold you back from your true potential. This also includes unfollowing any accounts on social media, that make you feel bad about your life. \r\n\r\nHave a Happy New Year!\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"cosmo, cosmopolitan, cosmo.in, editor nandini bhalla, new year 2020, resolutions, predictions","field_meta_keyword":"cosmo, cosmopolitan, cosmo.in, editor nandini bhalla, new year 2020, resolutions, predictions","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-01/KB_CosmoEditNote_Oct19_0065.jpg?WFe37aCsYuHzTVsNEcnW87CDXKuV3YcQ","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/celebrity/features/a19422/i-can-predict-how-2020-will-turn-out-you","created":"20 January 2020 ","time_created":"2020-01-20T20:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Celebrity","field_section_url":"/celebrity","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":null,"field_first_name":null,"authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"19406","title":"16 Guys That Should Be On Your Radar Right Now","field_dek":"We bring to you the ultimate dude list—everyone from the world of films, sports, photography, and more.\r\n","modified":"2020-01-16 10:23:39","status":"1","field_full_dek":"","type":"gallery","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"Cosmo, cosmopolitan, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, hot guys, bollywood, sports, music, gully boy, Afroz Shah, Environmentalist, Manish Dayal Actor, Rehan Poncha, Olympian Swimmer and National Golfer, Ranveer Brar, Celebrity Chef, Jasprit Bumrah\r\nCricketer, Yash Kotak, Co-Founder, Boheco, Prince Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist, Naezy the baa, Rapper, Simran Singh Shergill, Polo Player, Anand Ahuja, Founder, Bhane and Veg Non Veg, Bikramjit Bose, Fashion Photographer, Prashant Sawant, Celebrity Fitness Instructor, GAURAV GILL, Race Car Driver, SIDDHANT CHATURVEDI, Actor","field_meta_keyword":"Cosmo, cosmopolitan, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, hot guys, bollywood, sports, music, gully boy, Afroz Shah, Environmentalist, Manish Dayal Actor, Rehan Poncha, Olympian Swimmer and National Golfer, Ranveer Brar, Celebrity Chef, Jasprit Bumrah\r\nCricketer, Yash Kotak, Co-Founder, Boheco, Prince Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist, Naezy the baa, Rapper, Simran Singh Shergill, Polo Player, Anand Ahuja, Founder, Bhane and Veg Non Veg, Bikramjit Bose, Fashion Photographer, Prashant Sawant, Celebrity Fitness Instructor, GAURAV GILL, Race Car Driver, SIDDHANT CHATURVEDI, Actor\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-01/guys%20final.jpg?yBSOZeI7Xm5vy8NIgFCaHD.1JO2MyKNb","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/celebrity/features/g19406/16-guys-should-be-your-radar-right-now","created":"16 January 2020 ","time_created":"2020-01-16T15:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Celebrity","field_section_url":"/celebrity","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":null,"field_first_name":null,"authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"19396","title":"“There’s a Certain Kind of Energy And Understanding Women Bring to the Table”: Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari","field_dek":"In a #CosmoExclusiveInterview, Director Ashwiny Tiwari talks about her upcoming release with actor Kangana Ranaut and why good stories will always remain her first priority. \r\n","modified":"2020-01-23 14:51:19","status":"1","field_full_dek":"After decades of being on the sidelines, female directors are on the rise in Bollywood. It’s high time. And what they might lack in numbers (there are but a handful of them, compared to their male counterparts), this small but powerful army makes up for it with thought-provoking cinema that’s making people across the world sit up and take notice. Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari is part of that tiny tribe that, through its films, is pushing for a positive change.\r\n\r\nFor the uninitiated, Ashwiny has directed two films (both of which have garnered critical and commercial acclaim), with a third one on its way, starring Kangana Ranaut. Her debut directorial venture, Nil Battey Sannata—which Ashwiny also co-wrote with Neeraj Singh, Pranjal Choudhary, and Nitesh Tiwari—had education as its central theme, and highlighted how every person has the right to dream, irrespective of their social strata. Bareilly Ki Barfi, on the other hand, was about a strong-willed, small-town girl. \r\n\r\nAshwiny might be just two-film old in the industry, but she’s definitely not new to the process of creating films. The only difference: earlier, she churned out content as per her clients’ brief, and now she tells her own stories...in her own way. “Being in advertising for over 16 years, I had made over 300 commercials. But I always had an urge to make films because I had already seen the kind of impact a thought-provoking 30- or 45-second advertisement could have. And I thought to myself, if an ad can alter people’s thinking, then a two-hour movie can do wonders. So, I had this desire to tell good stories.”\r\n\r\nAnd that’s how Nil Battey Sannata was conceived. “I had created a commercial for Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC). At that time, and even now, there were many dos and don’ts for girls. For instance, what a girl should study, or if she is born in a certain part of the country, then she is only good enough to get married. The commercial that I worked on was about a young girl in Haryana, who really wanted to study, but her father insisted that her place was in the kitchen. But she was determined, and surpassed all odds and came on KBC. When Mr Amitabh Bachchan asked her about the one thing she’d like to say to the entire country, she said, ‘Mubarak ho, ladki hui hai’ [Congratulations, it’s a girl]. That’s the theme I wanted to take ahead with Nil Battey Sannata.” \r\n\r\nDuring our conversation, Ashwiny gives me multiple examples on why good stories are her first priority, and then the actors who fit the character. And while she would always like to “create films with a message”, she can’t “make boring films, either”. “I believe that the stories I tell should leave people with an afterthought. But it doesn’t necessarily need to be serious. A film has to be entertaining, but at the same time, it should to be honest and make you think,” Ashwiny adds.\r\n\r\nIs it tough being a female director? Ashwiny answers in the negative. “Maybe it’s because of my advertising experience, but I don’t feel the difference. I like to treat it like a normal job, like it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Plus, I have a good team—with a lot of women.”\r\n\r\nWe cut to the present—movie style—to the covershoot, where Ashwiny’s posing with the lead of her upcoming film, Kangana Ranaut. There is a lot of buzz around Panga...people are curious to see how Kangana will transform herself for the role. Ashwiny says, “Panga is an extension of Nil Battey Sannata and Bareilly Ki Barfi...it’s a conversation-starter. The film is based on women’s kabaddi. Though I won’t call it a sports drama, I would say it’s a slice-of-life drama—it is about a woman and her journey, her conflicts and trials in the world of sports. And, of course, Kangana is an amazing actor. I think she is one of the best actresses...rather the best actress in the country. What I love about her is that she brings her own life’s experiences into the film to make it richer.”\r\n\r\nWith a predominantly female cast, including Richa Chadha and Neena Gupta along with Kangana, the energy on the set must be thrilling. Ashwiny agrees. “It’s amazing! Three strong women, who know exactly what they are doing, and working on each others energies and talents—isn’t that the nicest thing?!” \r\n\r\n“And the beauty of it is that none of them have egos...like, I’m the bigger star or the better actor. Kangana is the lead, and then you have Richa who’s equally talented and has an equally strong character. And then there’s Neena Gupta...who’s just wonderful. The fun bit, however, was to see how they discussed the scenes and how non-egotistically they’d ask me if they did okay. And if, sometimes, Nina added a line, or Richa or Kangana added a few words here and there, they would check if that’s okay with me! It was such a nice feeling,” she smiles. \r\n\r\nThrough the course of our chat, Ashwiny cements our belief that she’s a true champion of sisterhood, and loves rooting for her tribe. “I feel there’s a certain kind of energy and understanding women bring to the table. Because, ultimately, it’s a marriage, right? And a marriage can’t survive with silent conversations,” she tells us. “It is the era of collaboration. You can’t be in isolation. And once you collaborate, the universe works in your favour...for your benefit. The partnership between an actor and a director can only survive if both of them are on the same team. If your egos get the better of you, then it’s a recipe for disaster. I always believe that suggestions are not interference. When you’re working with such amazing actors, they come with their own points of view—if you don’t agree with them, just be honest and move on,” Ashwiny concludes.     \r\n \r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"cosmo, cosmopolitan, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, kangana ranaut, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, panga, bollywood actor, bollywood director, bollywood films, Nil Battey Sannata, bb, Bareilly Ki Barfi, neena gupta, richa chadda, women empowerment, collaboration, women leaders, kaun banega crorepati","field_meta_keyword":"cosmo, cosmopolitan, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, kangana ranaut, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, panga, bollywood actor, bollywood director, bollywood films, Nil Battey Sannata, bb, Bareilly Ki Barfi, neena gupta, richa chadda, women empowerment, collaboration, women leaders, kaun banega crorepati","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-01/Cosmopolitan%20Magazine1085%20copy.jpg?cYOqqpFdtmwaWbHIu4U8WQtjI1Eg5VoV","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/celebrity/features/a19396/theres-certain-kind-energy-and-understanding-women-bring-table-ashwiny","created":"15 January 2020 ","time_created":"2020-01-15T17:10:00+05:30","field_section":"Celebrity","field_section_url":"/celebrity","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":null,"field_first_name":null,"authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null}],"seodata":{"title":"Celebrity - Fashion, Hair & Beauty, Career, Health, and Relationships :: Cosmopolitan India","description":"Cosmopolitan is the lifestylist for millions of fun fearless females who want to be the best they can in every area of their lives, with information on relationships and romance, the best in fashion and beauty, as well as what's happening in pop culture and entertainment.","keyword":"Fashion, Hair & Beauty, Career, Health, and Relationships"},"isSSR":false,"ttl":1580336507354}}

Kareena Kapoor Khan Credits THIS Person to Be Her Constant Motivation For Her Rapid Weight Loss

+ how her pregnant self was partly responsible for her squad putting on kilos as well! 

While the West has been mesmerised by Taylor Swift and her girl gang for the longest time, Bollywood has its own gorgeous set of 'besties', strutting about in style giving everyone major #SquadGoals every now and then.

This hot and happening power girl gang, which includes Kareena Kapoor Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Malaika Arora and Amrita Arora, regularly post about their fun dates, group workout sessions, salon sessions, and vacation selfies on social media, and boy are we jealous!

While we've talked about Kareena's inspiring weight loss journey, and how her team (Namrata Purohit and Rujuta Diwekar) helps her stay on track, there are some interesting revelations about her girl squad and how they played their part in the process. In conversation with Mid-Day, Kareena admitted that her best friend Amrita Arora Ladak has always been by her side, motivating her throughout her journey to fitness. 

"A special chapter in a book [on my life would] need to be dedicated to her. Without her push, and her constant care, this would not have been possible. She'd remind me to eat healthy, urge me to train, and even offer to do so together. She was always there while I was putting on my sneakers and fitting into my tights, telling me, 'C'mon, we have to do this."

We can't say we're surprised, these two make working out look so much fun!

But just like any other group, there are friends who push you to your goals, and then there are others who spoil and pamper you. Kareena's sister Karisma Kapoor, and her friend Malaika Arora were guilty of this, especially when Kareena was pregnant with Taimur.

"Through my pregnancy, we would go to restaurants to eat. I'd eat two entire pizzas, and then the desserts, and eventually they would be tempted. They started putting on weight because of me. Every morning, I'd wake up and say, 'I want to eat samosas with motichur laddo'. And they'd be like, 'Oh God, we can't do that.' I'd urge them to eat, and eventually, they'd relent. So they've done that with me, and even brought me back to shape. Having a good friend is so important in this journey."

Thinking about catching up with your squad? Same.
