When two great minds collide, it leads to inevitable success. Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor and his ladylove Mira Rajput are proof of this. The Padmaavat star has expressed his love for fitness for as long as we can remember, often belting out pictures and videos from his hardcore gym routines. Meanwhile, Mira is a strong advocate of a mindful living through different yoga-based programmes. Hence, it comes as no surprise that the star couple has invested in an Indian yoga and wellness startup, SARVA.
“Connection 7 billion breaths, together” Mira posted on Instagram. The power duo has joined the likes of Hollywood A-listers Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Garner, Kim Kardashian West and many others in incorporating meditation practices into their daily lifestyle. The list of global investors in SARVA, the mastermind of yogi-turned- entrepreneur Sarvesh Shashi, also includes fitness enthusiast and actor Malaika Arora.
"My personal journey with fitness and wellness began over two decades ago when I was a fresh-faced teenager," Shahid said in a statement. "Over the years, I've witnessed the benefits of fitness and holistic living first-hand, so when I met Sarvesh, we could instantly connect to his vision for SARVA."
As a couple, Shahid and Mira are willing to work together towards improving the quality of life for people who are struggling with mental health conditions including stress, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness. One of their pivotal concerns is also the eradication of obesity. Mira revealed she has always maintained a tailored diet and is extremely conscious about her eating habits. "Whether it's being mindful about what one eats, the kind of exercise the body needs through the different phases in one's life or the thoughts we manifest, the mind-body-soul connection is key,” she stated.
SARVA aims to achieve 500 studios by 2022. It will also soon launch its digital offerings in the mindfulness music, guided meditation and interactive fitness space. Sarvesh welcomed Shahid and Maira on board, mentioning their support is a demonstration of their belief in the new-fangled venture’s vision.
