Shilpa open to botox and marriage


Actress Shilpa Shetty is not averse to botox, but doesn’t feel the need for it yet. She told Daily Mail in an interview that she’s aware she’s ageing and is practical about it. “I’m aware I’m getting older, but I’ll take it as it comes — I’m not averse to having botox, but I just don’t feel I need it yet. I spent a long time getting comfortable with who I am. I was an ugly duckling as a child, and it took a lot of hard work to get to where I am today, where I’m not so self-critical. I still don’t think I’m as good-looking as my sister, Shamita, or even my mother, who is stunning, even now. But I’ve metamorphosed into the person I am today, and I’m pretty content.”

Shilpa says she owes a lot to the Big Boss show for opening avenues for her. She is more open now about her relationship with London-based entrepreneur Raj Kundra. The long-distance relationship does not come easy, but at the same time it has made them value each other more, she confesses. So, is she ready for marriage to Raj? “Definitely, and I’m sure I will, God willing. I intend to try and do that as soon as my professional life has calmed down hopefully in the next couple of years. I don’t want to make too many predictions as I don’t believe in making too many plans, but, yes, I have a man in my life and, yes, I hope we will get married.”— HNS
