Actress and model, Malaika Arora is a diva, who has been winning our hearts with her sartorial choices and toned physique. Even at the age of 48, Malaika has maintained a fit and healthy body, and she credits it to yoga. In her career spanning over two decades, Malaika managed to carve a niche of her own and left everyone stunned by her presence on the silver screen.
For the unversed, Malaika Arora had met with an intense car accident on the expressway at Khopoli, Maharashtra on April 2, 2022, as she was returning from Pune after attending a fashion event. However, she had suffered no major injuries and was rushed to a nearby hospital. Now, in a recent interview, she talked about how she recovered from that tough phase.
In an interview with India Today, Malaika Arora opened up about her accident and revealed how she longed to get back to her yoga routine. She shared that she had believed that yoga could make her physically and mentally better and added that she was in tears when she had done her first yoga class after her accident. Recalling her hard time, the 48-year-old actress said:
“Without making light of the situation, besides my healing, the one thing I kept asking my doctor was when I could go back to my yoga practice. I could not do it immediately. I could only start with basic yoga at the start. I knew yoga would make a great difference to my mental and physical state, hence, I kept asking my doctor about it. The day my trainer came home and did a class, I was in tears.”
Malaika also shared that she had gone through a lot of shock after her accident and had needed some time to recover. She added that now, after two and a half months since her accident, she is back to her yoga practice and revealed that she is happy. In her words:
“My body went through a lot of shock post the accident and needed time to recover. When I could do 45 mins to one hour of my yoga class, it made me so happy. Today, we are two and a half months since the accident, and I am back to my practice and I am so happy about it. Thank you, yoga."
Arhaan Khan, who is currently pursuing higher studies abroad since August 2021, shares a friendly bond with his mommy, Malaika Arora. The 20-year-old son dotes on his mother and never shies away from showering love on her. Earlier, in an interview with The Times Of India, Malaika had opened up about her son, Arhaan's reaction to her accident and had revealed that he was howling on the phone. Talking about the same, Malaika had said:
“I had just come back after seeing Arhaan. It had just been 48 hours and the incident happened. I was on work in the US and he had a spring break. So we also spent a lot of time together. He was hugely worried and in shock after my accident. He was howling on the phone, and he was worried and just ready to hop on to the next flight. What do you expect from a kid in such a situation, especially when he’s miles away from home?"
Currently, Malaika Arora is in a steady relationship with actor, Arjun Kapoor.
