Dilwalon Ke Dil Ka Karar Lootne
Tu Aayi Hun U.P. Bihar Lootne…
Would you believe if we say that Shilpa Shetty Kundra, every 90’s kid’s dance inspiration and every millennial mom’s fitness goals, is turning 43 today? 43? More like 23, am I right?
From a blockbuster debut in 1993 with Baazigar to her ‘Sunday Binges’ in 2018 on Instagram, from a disco favourite to a domestic diva, Shilpa is an actress, an author, a wife, a mom and an inspiration to thousands of us. She may have stopped acting in movies but it never feels like a miss, thanks to all the reality shows and beauty pageants the actress is judging these days. She’s not only the showstopper at fashion weeks but a showstopper at her saree game too.
