It’s Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt’s birthday, and while we’re completely in awe of her acting skills, we can’t help but marvel at her dedication to fitness as well! Her slim physique might be the talk of the town, but the actress always works out and ensures a good mix of everything from cardio to strength training and yoga.
Let’s take a look at 5 times Alia Bhatt has given us some serious fitness inspiration.
1. Yoga is love
We’ve often seen actresses like Shilpa Shetty and Malaika Arora being passionate about yoga, and Alia is also part of the tribe. She is often seen performing complex yoga poses such as kapotasana or pigeon pose, which is essentially a backbend pose. Wearing a lavender top and black tights, she performed the asana, which stretches the torso, ankles and thighs. Here’s what her caption says: “Progress on perfection #happymonday.”
2. Stretch to the end
Once again, this Instagram reel shared by Alia shows just how flexible she is! She does a complete yoga routine with such ease that we are completely in awe of her. Of course, her cat Edward raises the cuteness level while she does the asanas. The post left fans super impressed and motivated them to get up and start moving. We know for sure that Alia is a regular practitioner of yoga under the guidance of celebrity trainer Anshuka Parwani.

3. Passion for Pilates
Pilates seems to be another favorite of B-City celebs and Alia is also someone who swears by this workout. She is someone who is superbly committed to her fitness and doesn’t miss her exercise sessions even if she is up late at night.
Here’s what she wrote in one of her posts: “Shooting nights can be very tiring on the body because of the way it messes with your natural biological clock. I woke up today feeling so exhausted. But after playing around and doing intense Pilates, my energy level skyrocketed.”
4. Love for leg workouts
Sohrab Khushrushahi, Alia’s trainer, shared an intense leg routine that the actress performs regularly. The caption read: “Do it or don’t do it. There is no attempt.’ Always work those legs. I don’t think you’ll be too happy with me tomorrow morning, Alia Bhatt.
In the video, Alia may be performing five exercises – four sets of six to eight repetitions of Suspended Band Technique (HBT) back squats, four sets of six to eight repetitions of Jefferson curls, four sets of six to eight repetitions of squats. high sumo + sumo deadlift, four sets of 10-15 reps of wall calf raises and four sets of six to eight reps of front foot high squats (each leg).
5. Making the most of online workouts
The lockdowns induced by the pandemic made us realize the importance of physical conditioning and how training should not be missed! To get her daily dose of endorphins, Alia had virtual training sessions with her trainer.
Here’s what she wrote in the caption: “Counting on those endorphins and my virtual workout partners to keep the spirits up.”
