Stressing the importance of body positivity, Alia shared that her mantra is to listen to her body and not to be hard on herself. Talking about the same, she said:
“I really want to talk about this. A lot of women struggle with their new appearance post-pregnancy. They tend to put a lot of pressure on themselves to get back to looking a certain way. Everyone wants to lose weight, and I can relate to that. I love food, I love to eat, and I had to lose weight because films are a visual medium and you need to look healthy. You have to look appealing.”

“In today’s age, with every picture appearing on social media, girls even before pregnancy are constantly worried about how they look. Women should take a moment to appreciate their bodies. So many pieces have to come together and things need to go right for you to bring a baby into the world. I want you to appreciate your body for keeping you safe during that time. It’s not just about getting back in shape, but building your immunity, and then, everything will follow.”
Further in the interview, Alia Bhatt revealed that she has decided never to be hard on herself and added that she doesn't work out to become thin.

She also talked about the little steps that have helped her in her post-pregnancy transformation and added:
“Now when I work out, I don’t do it to become thin or make my waist look smaller. I do it to be healthy. The idea is to be fit and not starve yourself by following some unhealthy diet. I made a decision never to be hard on myself even if there’s extra bloating or chubbiness here and there. I am going to celebrate it. I won’t torture myself. Just make an effort to remain healthy, like eat your veggies, include protein in your diet, do yoga and go for a walk. Do basic things to be healthy. Take a moment to appreciate yourself.”
