In an interview with TOI, Shefali Jariwala revealed the reason behind her initial weight gain and said, “I was 15 years old when I had my first epileptic seizure. Yes, I was an epileptic. The medication that I had to take because of the condition caused a lot of weight gain. Shortly, after that I did a music video which was a big hit after that I was really busy with work, dancing all the time. I had to keep my energy levels up and also look good on camera.”
Shefali Jariwala further added, “That’s when I realised I need to shed a few kilos and I went to gym for the very first time, so my fitness journey started from there about 20 years ago and it has a whole new meaning today. What started 20 years ago with just something for me to lose weight, has become so big for me today… I realised as a woman especially post 30 your body really changes and so should your workout regime.”
