Shilpa Shetty cheers for 68-year-old mother-in-law during workout, son Viaan joins in. Watch video
Shilpa Shetty is one of the fittest actors in Bollywood, but her 68-year-old mother-in-law Usha Rani Kundra is giving her a run for her money. Despite being nearly 70 and “highly diabetic”, she is not missing out on her workout routine even during the three-week lockdown.
In a video shared by Shilpa on Instagram, she is seen cheering for Usha as she works out at their home gym. “My 68-year-old Mom-in-law working out and I sneaked up on her... this is sooo inspiring. She’s highly diabetic but just the fact that she takes the time out to walk (even if it’s around the house) or do yoga/stretch or breathe... she makes that effort. I respect the discipline she maintains, only shows that she ‘values’ her health. This video is so inspiring, it is proof that it’s never too late to start,” the caption read.
“She’s gonna kill me for posting this, but I had to... Love you mom... So grateful for all your blessings and for the fact that you inspire us all,” it added. Viaan Raj Kundra, Shilpa’s son, also joined his grandmother during her workout session.
Currently, Shilpa is in self-isolation with her family. In an earlier interview with Hindustan Times, she said that the time away from work was letting her spend time with her newborn daughter, Samisha, and Viaan.
“My role as a mother takes precedence over everything. I wanted time to myself because I was like, ‘I have a new baby, how will I manage?’ God has his special ways of working things around for you. This break unfortunately came at a time which isn’t a happy situation for people suffering from it. For me, it was a much needed break for my two kids,” she said.
Shilpa is all set to return to the big screen after more than a decade with Sabbir Khan’s Nikamma, which also stars Shirley Setia and Abhimanyu Dassani. She also has Priyadarshan’s comedy Hungama 2 in the pipeline.
