Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty Kundra, who made her big screen comeback with the latest release ‘Nikamma’, said fame is a double-edged sword.
Talking to IANS about the cons of stardom, Shilpa said: “Fame is a double-edged sword but you have to appreciate it and the cons are something that you need to take in your stride… It would be the end of your career or stint in the industry if people allow you to eat ‘pani puri’ without bothering you, I would say that would be something that would be worrisome.”
Shilpa said she is “grateful for all the love and appreciation”.
She added: “It does get a little daunting where people don’t know when to draw the line because we are not monkey’s in a zoo, we are here to entertain and I have a heartfelt gratitude for all the love that comes my way.
“But sometimes when you have worked very hard and you try to a take a break with your family and sometimes when you are at the airport and you are holding your two-year-old’s hand and somebody just comes in and wants a selfie.. It is scary sometimes but otherwise it is all the part and parcel of the fame game.”
Shilpa will next be seen in Rohit Shetty’s ‘Indian Police Force‘, a cop action drama web series streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Shilpa Shetty’s love for yoga is well-known. She keeps sharing her workout videos on social media and inspires her fans to follow healthy diet and fitness regime.
This International Yoga Day, she is launching a special built-in AI-feature in her Simple Soulful fitness related app that will enable users to correct their postures.
Shilpa says that she has introduced this feature because many of the users asked her how to correct their posture while doing yoga.
“I am passionately involved with the SS App, I do go through feedback, and get a lot of messages and DMs asking me if they can be personally monitored or corrected on their posture, etc.”
