Shilpa Shetty looks drastically different now as compared to her initial days in Bollywood. She is super active on social media, where she often promotes health tips and so on. Shilpa Shetty Kundra explained, "I want to make use of my social media sites to encourage people in the right direction, and tell them how just a few lifestyle modifications can make wonders. I feel really happy when they react positively and appreciate the effort. Now, that for me is the biggest reward."
Apart from films Shilpa Shetty has dabbled in sports to spas to online selling to film production. Shilpa Shetty was even invited to speak on health and fitness by a corporate organisation in Dubai. She even drew up a fitness regime for those working long hours with no time to exercise.

Shilpa Shetty told mid-day, "The organisers heard about the tour I did in the US and approached me with this concept. I loved the idea of doing a fitness world tour since it allows me to meet and share my fitness mantra with people of different cultures and nationalities, also facilitating a healthy exchange of ideas. Fitness and wellness today are priority and almost everyone wants to adopt a healthy lifestyle."

Over the past year Shilpa, who is very active on social media with over 6 million followers on Instagram, has seemingly relaxed her diet restrictions, and in this vein, every Sunday posts a video of her 'cheat meal', known as her 'Sunday binge'. And these videos usually feature Shilpa describing what is on her plate before rather self consciously devouring the heap for the camera.

Shilpa Shetty had even opened up about the criticism she faced regarding her weight post her pregnancy. When asked about the issue of body shaming, Shilpa, who welcomed son Viaan with husband Raj Kundra in 2012, told, "I can understand that emotion (of being judged), especially as an actress and someone who has been synonym with having a good body and (being into) fitness."
Shilpa Shetty added further, "The pressure that I had when I had a baby, I didn't get out of my house for seven months. The pressure that nothing fit me. I remember the first time I got out of my house, five months after my delivery, my husband took me out for lunch. There were few ladies sitting, they laughed. I heard them, 'she hasn't still lost her weight.'"

Finally! This is the real secret behind Shilpa Shetty's fit body
Shilpa Shetty said the pressure to look good can be daunting and she lost nearly 32 kgs post the incident. "So, it is very daunting. That's the day I decided 'oh my God, so people are judging me.' That's normal, because when you're an actor, you are going to be judged. That's part and parcel of being a celebrity."

Shilpa Shetty also shared an incident where she went to work after giving birth and the issue she faced. "Nach Baliye was my first outing after pregnancy, eight months after I delivered. I was very scared. Clothes weren't fitting me, I was size 16, double the size I've ever been in my life. When you're working, that gives you enough inspiration or goal. Some do it for their loved one, some for work, I think you've to do it for yourself."
