The actress' birthday surprise is no more a secret now! A source close to Shilpa Shetty, who turns 35 today, reveals that hubby Raj Kundra has taken her princess away to her favourite destination Macau.
A source close to Shilpa Shetty informs Mid Day, "Raj has been away in London for a few weeks now. She has been shooting for her reality show Zara Nachke Dikha and taking care of her mom Sunanda, who was recently hospitalised. It's unfortunate that Raj wasn't with her during this stressful time, but he wrapped up all of his work to fly to Mumbai and be with her on her birthday."
The source continues, "He just asked his wife to keep her luggage ready by Sunday night. They flew to Hong Kong on Sunday night, after which a chartered chopper took them to Macau -- their final destination! Raj chose this location because he knows it's one of her favorite holiday destinations -- it's got everything Shilpa likes -- shopping, spas, casinos -- it's like Sin City!"
The lady, meanwhile, is basking in her birthday surprise. She posts online, "I am so thrilled that Raj is back to celebrate my first birthday after marriage. It means a lot to me that in spite of his busy schedule, he made time to be with me. Last year, Raj had organised a surprise party for me at a London hotel with my family and friends. But this year is more special as it's my first birthday with my husband."
She adds, "I miss him terribly when he's away. Being very organised, Raj had instructed my manager to keep June 7-9 free as he wanted to surprise me with a break. Raj is full of surprises and as usual, kept me guessing till the last minute where we were going."
The couple is staying in The Venetian Macao at the Paiza Club.
