With over 13 million social media followers cheering on her every move, actress Neha Sharma is the perfect girl next door (just way hotter).
We took to a wellness retreat in the Sahyadri hills for our latest GQ shoot, and caught up on some much-needed TLC along the way.
A three-hour drive from Mumbai’s urban sprawl lies the Hilton Shillim EstateRetreat & Spa, nestled in an unspoilt, sylvan setting against the breathtaking Sahyadris.
It proved an unexpected and rewarding location to shoot our latest obsession, Neha Sharma. When we arrived early that morning, the hotel staff had a breakfast laid out for us at the spacious King Spa Pool villa.
If you associate a wellness retreat with all things healthy and diet conscious(read: bland), the Hilton Shillim begs to differ: Everything, even the “health shots”,were gourmet and delicious.
Neha Sharma, the quintessential girl next door, was a natural in front of the camera. So it wasn’t long before photographer Prasad Naik got the shots he needed.
Which meant a early wrap, a tasty lunch at Terrazzo, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, and a walk around the retreat as we catalogued every spa service we wished we could indulge in.
