News Highlights

  • Shilpa Shetty Kundra turns a year older today.
  • Known for her fabulous dancing, Shilpa once faced racist comments during her stay inside the house of Big Brother.

Shilpa Shetty Kundra is a multi-talented personality who is known for her Bollywood movies and as a judge on a dance reality show. Even though she celebrates her 48th birthday today, Shilpa looks much younger than her age and the mantra for this magic is her dedication towards fitness and yoga which she keeps on sharing with her fans through her social media page.

From debuting in Bollywood with Bazigaar opposite Shah Rukh Khan to winning UK’s biggest reality show Big Brother, Shilpa Shetty has seen lots of ups and downs in her career span of almost three decades.

Shilpa Shetty faced racism inside the house of Big Brother

Big Brother is a UK reality show similar to India’s Bigg Boss. She was repeatedly targeted for her dark colour on the show and many contestants called her “Ugly Duckling.” But the Dhadkan actress stood to the task and emerged a winner of the show surprising many.

Shilpa can speak multiple languages

The mother tongue of Shilpa is Telugu. Apart from that she can also speak Tamil, Hindi, English, Gujarati, French, and Marathi.

Fitness expert and yoga practitioner

The Bollywood actress was fond of sports right from her childhood and participated in all types of sports activities when she was in school. She was the captain of the school’s basketball team and also played volleyball very well. Known for her expertise in fitness and yoga, Shilpa has many YouTube videos and a book to her name where she discusses the benefits of eating right and doing exercises regularly.

She is the co-author of “The Great Indian Diet” book with Luke Coutinho which discusses how nutrition can be obtained by eating fruits and vegetables produced locally.

Shilpa is a fabulous dancer

While her acting career may not have given her the identity she aspired for, it is her dancing that has always attracted appreciation for her. Be it her “Kitabe bahut si” from debut movie Baazigar, “churake dil mera” with Akshay Kumar, or “Main ayi hoon UP Bihar lutane”, most of her songs are big hits and that is why she is also a popular judge on dance reality shows.

A very successful entrepreneur

Shilpa Shetty is the co-owner of the IPL cricket team Rajasthan Royals and has also launched various popular products in the market like Viaan Mobiles, S2 perfumes, and BestDealTV-an online shopping site.

She is also the owner of Bastian restaurant in Mumbai which is a hotspot for celebrities for grabbing a gourmet meal or meeting someone special in a cozy space.
