Hot 100 2011 - Shilpa Shetty Kundra
As one of the world’s most famous Bollywood actresses, a successful businesswoman and owner of Rajastan Royals cricket team, Shilpa combines a lethal mix of beauty and brains effortlessly.
Having recently bought an apartment with her husband in the Burj Khalifa and set up her new restaurant Tiffin Bites, this humble star divides her time between Dubai and Mumbai. “I love Dubai’s skyline and how fashion-forward this place is. It’s a fantastic shopping destination. The people are also really warm, and as a woman I feel extremely safe here. We have a very comfortable and cozy home and I really enjoy life in the UAE.”
Shilpa’s perfect day in Dubai would start with a massage at Sisters Beauty Lounge, skiing at Mall of the Emirates, dinner at Nobu and meeting with friends at Cavalli Club. At home she loves to cook and watch cricket with her husband. She cites the five most important things in her life as: “a smile on my family’s faces, being a good homemaker, being the best I can when I lend my name to something, making a difference and having a positive influence on people’s lives.”
Shilpa is a great believer in destiny. “I never planned to be an actor, but things just happened and life has its own surprises. I live each day as it comes. Hardwork plus positivity plus karma equals success.” And this year, Shilpa’s goal is to quite simply to “not set any goals.”
