Special K stands for just that and has for a long time partnered women to kick-start their weight management journey. Through this Special K 2 week challenge, I look forward to partnering with similar women and share our experiences along the journey.” said Deepika Padukone in a statement post the official announcement.

Deepika, who has had a dream run in the year 2013 with most of her films making it to the 100 crore club, will present women with a Special K 2 Week Challenge as part of a healthy lifestyle to help them begin a weight management journey. The challenge aims to prepare women for a bold and contemporary look for weddings.

We are very confident that our audience will effectively connect with Deepika Padukone, as she has always taken it upon herself to maintain healthy habits.”

This year Deepika Padukone has three releases; Kochadaiiyaan with Rajnikanth, Finding Fanny Fernandes with Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh and Happy New Year opposite Shah Rukh Khan.
