Speaking to IANS, in an interview, she said, “Wherever I go, people are eager to know how I remain so fit and want to know my fitness secrets. I tell each of them that I run, that's it. This habit was inculcated in me by my father at the age of 16, who urged me to run. At that age, I had the misconception that only overweight people run and since I was slim, I didn't need to.”
