So what happens when Bollywood's postergirl for fitness and India's yoga guru meet? They indulge in a session of yoga that leaves leads to everyone feeling good -- after all, the old adage is "laughter is the best medicine".

The svelte actress and the agile yoga guru's joint exercise session went viral on social media platforms and the images of Ramdev clad in his tiny saffron dhoti doing asanas with Shilpa Shetty and, especially, caught from weird angles and ackward moments caused a lot of mirth among Twitterati.


And while one can't be sure if Ramdev's hope of more people practising yoga after seeing Shilpa Shetty doing it will be fulfilled, it's assured that at least some people will be feeling a little better after the 'laughter session' they enjoyed thanks to the video.

On the eve of the launch of her book, 'The Great Indian Diet', Shilpa Shetty attended one session of Ramdev's five-day yoga camp organised in Mumbai. 

Shilpa Shetty also took the opportunity to present Ramdev with her book and thanked him for being "so supportive".

"Presented #BabaRamdev with my book@thegreatindiandiet, he's been so supportive. Thrilled with his blessings #inspiration #happy #blessed," Shilpa tweeted on Wednesday.
