Shilpa Shetty Kundra is a fitness enthusiast. To spread awareness about the importance of staying fit, the actor has released DVDs on yoga and has also written a book on healthy eating. Now, a source close to the actor says that she recently turned down an endorsement offer from a popular cold drink brand.

“When officials from the brand approached Shilpa for the ad, she refused the offer, because she didn’t want to promote a product that’s unhealthy. She promotes yoga and fitness, and is against the idea of endorsing aerated drinks,” adds the source.
