While PM Narendra Modi decided to take the initiative to spread Yoga worldwide, Bollywood superstars are also making it a part of their exercise regime. While Shilpa Shetty has been the Yoga ambassador for a while now, it is actor Kareena Kapoor Khan, mother to six-month-old Taimur Ali Khan, who made waves recently for regaining her figure quickly by doing yoga.
While Shilpa Shetty has a yoga DVD and a dedicated YouTube channel for her yoga clips, including those showing how to do the Suryanamaskar.

Shilpa has been quoted as saying, “Yoga didn’t just help me with my body; I also became fitter from within. It helped me to focus better. In the movies, we may look very glamorous and fit, but believe me, not many of us are actually fit from within. Yoga has helped me achieve that.”
Amitabh Bachchan is also one of them and is a Yoga enthusiast:
