Deepika Padukone was in a self-obsessed mood as she launched Namita Jain's book 'Jaldi Fit'. With an hour glass figure, she is definitely one of the fittest actresses in Bollywood today. And she has no qualms in admitting so.

"I am the fittest actress in Bollywood," said the dusky beauty. On being asked which actress she considers to be fit, apart from her, Deepika said, "Priyanka Chopra is a very fit. And among the actors, itís Akshay Kumar."

The actress said that being fit is very important. "If there's something that you really want to do, you automatically make time for it. Fitness has become a part of my life. I don't think about fitness as 'Oh my God! I have to workout'."

Like her contemporaries Bipasha Basu and Shilpa Shetty, does Deepika have any plans to launch her own fitness DVDs? "I have no plans to launch any fitness DVDs," was her terse reply.

The 24-year-old also admitted her love for eating. "I love eating. For me, it's almost a hobby to try out different cuisines when I travel the world. Fortunately in the profession that I am, I get to travel a lot. I also have sweets and deserts. The secret is to understand your body. It is said rice is not good for you. As a South Indian, I have grown up on rice. So it really depends on what suits your body. And of course, you have to combine it with workout. If you are not going to burn the calories, then you will put it on (weight)."

What if Deepika is asked to gain weight for a film and look fat? "Putting on weight is not a problem, but losing it is. So I'll have to think twice about it.

Deepika will next be seen in LAFANGEY PARINDEY opposite Neil Nitin Mukesh. The film hits the screens on August 27.
