Bollywood beauty Shilpa Shetty Kundra is one of the most beautiful actresses of her generation. She made her Bollywood debut with ‘Baazigar’ in 1993. Since then, the actress has remained relevant to Indian cinema. At the age of 48, she can give actors of current generation a run for their money. In fact, more than her acting career, the diva has grabbed attention for her fit and toned body. However, there came a time when Shilpa was mercilessly trolled for gaining weight.
Shilpa recollects being body-shamed post-pregnancy
In a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, the ‘Dhadkan’ actress recalled how she was judged for being overweight right after delivering her first child Viaan Raj Kundra. Shilpa said that people were insensitive. They bashed her because she belonged to the showbiz and her business was to look glamorous. And so, they couldn’t understand how she had not lost the extra kilos for nearly eight months after her first kid.
The actress stated that though she did not intend to shed weight for first eight months, the moment she decided to do that, it took her only three months. Shilpa quoted, “But logon ka kaam hai kehna (it’s people’s job to talk). You can’t change how people think and you can’t take them too seriously.”
In the same conversation, the actress also talked about how she does not pay heed to people’s thoughts on her being a working mother. She revealed that she tries to strike a balance between her professional and personal life and mentioned that trolls do not run her life.
Shilpa’s personal and professional life
Shilpa Shetty Kundra married business tycoon Raj Kundra in 2009. The couple has two children together- son Viaan and daughter Samisha.
The actress is coming up next with thought-provoking film ‘Sukhee’ alongside Amit Sadh, Kusha Kapila, and Pavlin Gujral. It is helmed by Sonal Joshi. Besides this, Shilpa has Rohit Shetty’s web show ‘Indian police Force’ with Sidharth Malhotra in the pipeline.
