‘I don't hide stuff, but...'
GLOBAL MOVIE MAGAZINE|December 2020
‘I’m an extrovert, but there is a facet to me that I closely guard.’ ‘I just think that there has to be something that you keep for yourself.’

Shilpa Shetty opens about being a mom to two in a candid chat with Neha Dhupia, on the latter’s show, No Filter With Neha.

“Guts to me, I am 45 and I’ve had another child. I’ll be 50 and my child is five,” Shilpa says, referring to her eight-year-old son, Viaan, and baby daughter, Samisha.

On a hobby she picked up during the lockdown

Well, I don’t know if yoga really is my hobby but it is definitely a passion and I think you should pursue something that you’re passionate about.

I’m doing like this live session every Saturday with a grandmaster and I’m learning different techniques of meditation and advanced yoga.

Even more advanced than what I know right now.

So it’s been quite a fun process and you know I’m a mother of two now, actually three, one who’s acting his shoe size, my husband.

On her chemistry with her husband Ra Kundra and who’s the boss in business There is a very clear demarcation.

He really leaves some decisions to me.

When it comes to business acumen, he definitely aces over there. When it comes to creativity, he leaves that aspect to me.

It’s very clear and there’s no jumping of lines.

I think that’s what keeps us in sync with each other and I really think that you know that there has to be a marriage even in business.

What I’m not good at I don’t even get into that sphere you know.

Like I said money, I’m terrible with money. I only know how to make it, I don’t know what to do with it.

On breaking norms about motherhood

I don’t care to pay too much attention for other people’s opinions and judgments on me because it’s really not their place.

I am doing my best as a mother.

However people perceive me to be, I really want to bring my child up the way my parents brought us up.

The only difference is obviously we were brought up in a smaller home with lot lesser in terms of facilities but the same amount of love, if not more.

I want my child to be grounded.

I want to keep it real for him, so he is reprimanded when he does something wrong.

He has to be polite and kind and a good human being at the end of it all.
