After lending her name to a perfume, coming out with a yoga DVD and becoming part owner of an IPL team, Shilpa Shetty is all set to launch a line of luxury medispas in collaboration with Kiran Bawa of Iosis. Shetty would often give Bawa inputs on ingredients that could be added to facials and masks. That will now translate into a gold and caviar facial, a wino mask and scrub and manicures and pedicures that end with silvery white nail paint and other Shilpa Shetty’s signature treatments.
Food for thought
Since, the actress is a ‘green baby’, the spas will also incorporate yoga, weight loss programmes, fitness therapies and a gym.Shetty is planning to come up with a book of her special recipes that are low in calories but high on nutrition. Her fiancé, Raj Kundra, has likened her to a desi Martha Stewart and the comparison makes her giggle, “Raj is a dream guy for any woman. I’ve grown from strength to strength since I met him,” she asserts.
She’s back in Mumbai after a much-needed break in London during which she celebrated her 34th birthday. “It doesn’t show because I camouflage it well, but I’m still a year older. Keeping good health has become priority now. I need to slow down,” she says, explaining her reasons to gift herself a three-week holiday in London at the end of the IPL season.
Right now, besides her two films—The Man and Desire—and a home production that will go on the floors soon, Shetty has the task of decorating three homes. “I’ve turned into a full-time interior decorator,” she laughs.
The British papers have quoted her as saying she’d like to fill the rooms with children as soon as possible. “I’d love to have children par shaadi to ho jaane do,” she laughs.
Everyone’s talking of an October wedding but the actress insists that she has still to set a date. “The day I do, I’ll make an official announcement on my blog,” she promises.
