The medical spa… Karan wants more

You can’t have too much of a good thing especially if it’s something as addictive as weight loss! Apparently, Karan Johar who just lost 8 kilos at the Austrian farm that’s the rage with B-town right now, is planning to revisit in November again! Pin him down and he will tell you that the weight loss is due to no milk, gluten free diet, exercise and communing with nature besides the exotic spa treatments which helped get his stress levels down.

Over the past year, the medical spa Viva Mayr has become the go-to place for the who’s who of Bollywood to detox. Everyone from Sonam, Rhea, Sunita and Anil Kapoor, to Parineeti Chopra and Farah Khan swear by the clinic’s treatments. And don’t forget, it was Rani and Aditya Chopra who had started the trend, visiting them in 2014 when she had a serious health crisis. In fact, the Chopras had even hosted a sit-down dinner in March to introduce doctors from the spa to film friends like Hrithik Roshan, Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor.

For those interested, it reportedly costs Rs. 3 lakh for a week’s stay for its treatments which include a starvation diet (stale bread and a bowl of watery soup for dinner!), colonic irrigation and endless chewing.

…And our B-town brigade is happily putting themselves through it in pursuit of weight loss, bright eyes and glowing skin!
