In the risque shoot, Hrithik is flaunting his toned abs dressed in a pair of Adidas Y-3 joggers and the supermodel Lisa, is showing off her supple figure in a Michael Kors swimsuit and hot red heels from Gianvito Rossi. If the cover has been shot with such oozing panache, then full photoshoot would certainly make our jaws drop. Have a sneak peak of the shoot from the inside story.
Along with the smearing hotness, the duo shared their fitness secrets in the cover story.
Hrithik, while sharing his strategy to stay fit and focused said "I’ve been having it every single day for the last five years and, while I can’t explain the connection, I feel great. When I am in my transformation phase, I get off all carbs (except the fibrous kind) for seven to eight weeks. My five meals comprise 90gm of chicken or fish or six egg whites with one yolk tossed with a lot of broccoli and beans with different seasonings so it does not get monotonous." Adding to that, he mentioned "I am a huge foodie—while prepping for my role in Guzaarish (2010), for which I had to gain weight, I ate samosas and vada pavs every day for two months. People still get shocked when they see me eat a whole box of chocolates. I don’t psyche myself out—I know how to balance my meals even when I am not on a strict diet." He also shared "My intelligence says magic does not exist, but my spirit believes in it. I’ve never let myself give up because I believe in myself. I want to get stronger than I have ever been and I will continue to tell myself that I can do it, no matter what the odds."
Whereas Lisa, who feels that she looked “quite funny” as a kid, discovered the joys of working out rather early in life. She started exercising at the age of 11 and feels healthy lifestyle is just a perk. She said "I went through an awkward phase with my body and was often ragged for being too thin. I didn’t understand then why people were being so unkind, but I used it to make myself mentally stronger. Very often what makes you the underdog when you are younger becomes your USP later. What made me so different then has set me apart now." While mentioning this she added that "All credit to my mother who, despite having to look after eight children, always made time for exercise. She’d work out to Jane Fonda and later Kathy Smith and Cindy Crawford in between managing us. I soon joined her, as I loved aerobics and its accompanying music and the gorgeous swimsuits these women wore, showing off their super-fit legs that I desperately wanted. Then at 17, when I hit adolescence, I took to running for both the adrenaline rush and to blow off steam. I started with 10 rounds, then 20, and before I knew it I was running in professional marathons." Adding to that she shared "During my years in mid-west America, I had gained a lot of weight. I was eating a lot of country food like fried chicken biscuit. For someone who has always been skinny, and even bullied because of it, I wasn’t used to all the weight and was looking for a quick fix. My sister convinced me to try Atkins… I lasted for all of three days!"
