In a video shared on Instagram, Mandira Bedi is heard saying, “This is something I’ve been meaning to say for a while. This is regarding my post, I put on a lot of posts on fitness and exercise, because exercise and fitness is my happy place. Come to it, after a lot that I have gone through. I have battled a bit of depression as well, but I’ve not talked about it. And this is something that motivates me, keeps me going, keeps me honest and hopefully it motivates some other people as well. There are people who tell me all the time that this is all that I do, I have a life that’s great, that’s why that’s all that I do. But I just want to let people know that I make time for exercise and fitness inspite of what I do and inspite of whatever is going on in my life. So for those of you who think that it’s not inspiring, it angers or irritates you in any way, please do unfollow me because this is a happy place for me. And I want this platform to be a happy platform.”
