Similar to Preity Zinta, Shilpa Shetty too shared lots of videos of home gardening. Incidentally, the actress is very careful about what she eats which is why having a veggie garden comes naturally to her.
In one of her posts, the actress can be seen teaching her son how to pluck brinjals from her home garden. She writes, "One of the greater joys of life is to see your efforts coming to fruition in this circle of life; whether it is about starting a new venture, seeing your child grow up or just the plants you nurture bearing vegetables and fruits for you to enjoy. Planted these seeds in pots a few months ago and was thrilled to see brinjals and chilies ready to be harvested."
She further adds, "As they say, what you sow, so you shall reap. Clean organic produce. Same with your thoughts actually think clean and positive; and the fruits those thoughts manifest into will be beautiful. C’est la vie!" Interestingly the Dhadkan actress has even turned a vegetarian amid lockdown with the aim to reduce her carbon footprint.
Samantha Akkineni, Preity Zinta, Shilpa Shetty, and many more celebrities have inspired their fans with these activities. In the period of lockdown when everyone is feeling isolated and lonely, growing veggies at home is certainly a productive use of spare time.
