Face of the event, Bipasha Basu attended the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon launch.
Indian actress Bipasha Basu looked ravishing at the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon launch in New Delhi, India on August 27, 2014.
The seventh edition of the event will be held on November 23, 2014. Besides the main marathon, the event will feature mini-runs like the Great Delhi Run, the Senior Citizen’s Run and the Wheelchair Run.
The ‘Jism’ actress emphasized the importance of women’s fitness, saying, “If women are fit, we will have a fit household and if we have a fit household, we will have a fit country.” She added, “The last edition saw a 28 per cent rise in female participation. This year I expect an even more enthusiastic response from women.”
Bipasha shared her own experience with failing fitness to encourage women to take healthy initiatives for themselves. “Nine years ago I had osteoarthritis. I managed to overcome after following a rigorous fitness regime. I do believe that if a woman is fit and healthy, whole family will be motivated to be healthy,” the actress said.
The sultry star is awaiting her upcoming film ‘Creature 3D’ to release in theaters on September 12, 2014. The film, directed by Vikram Bhatt, also features Pakistani actor Imran Abbas.
