It is sizzling hot and Athiya Shetty can take the heat when she has coconut water by her side.
We’ve all had these discussions with our friends and family about the heat wave this year. It’s only April yet the strong, hot winds that blow past your face transport you to the sizzling hot weather of June. While some of us find it strange that it has gotten so hot, so quickly, the fact remains that climate change is adversely affecting our nature and health. It is surprising how people switched from zero fans to super cool air-conditioners in a matter of a few days. The drastic change in weather has also risen concerns about health.
As soon as summers arrive, the Internet is filled with ideas of cooling down and keep yourself hydrated. There is definitely nothing that can beat the satisfaction of a chilled glass of water in this weather. However, for Athiya Shetty, it is another summer cooler. The actress who made her debut with Hero in the Hindi film industry was seen sipping water out of a coconut. Captioned as “32°”, the actress seems to be quenching her thirst with fresh coconut water. Don’t believe us? Here, take a look.
