Recently Shilpa Shetty was spotted outside a diagnostic lab and rumours of her being pregnant immediately started to circulate. In response the fit star took to Twitter and said, #ShilpaKoKyaHua KUCH NAHI! (Nothing) Hey Bhagwan (Oh my God)... I get a preventive health check done at SRL regularly to know that my body is as healthy on the inside as the outside. Something we all must do. What's all the fuss about! And no not pregnant (sic)
While on Salman Khan's Dus Ka Dum 3 over the weekend, Shilpa Shetty Kundra won Rs 10 lakh after beating rival contestant Farah Khan in the final round. Taking her philanthropic work ahead, the actor has donated her earnings to the Shilpa Shetty Foundation, her not-for-profit organisation that provides shelter and education to orphans
Having kick-started the initiative eight years ago, Shilpa Shetty has taken several children's homes under her wing, underwriting the cost of running them. She says the recent winnings will help her rebuild an orphanage in Belgaum — something that been on her wish list for a while
In an interview, Shilpa Shetty said, "The orphanage in Belgaum houses 60 children who are HIV survivors. For the past eight years, Raj [Kundra, husband] and I have been taking care of their accommodation, food and other needs. With this money, I want to rebuild the place. The renovation could easily cost Rs 40-50 lakh, but it's a start."
The Belgaum children's shelter, Shetty admits, holds a special place in her heart - it was when she read about the orphanage by chance that her journey to philanthropy kicked off. "I read about this young guy who was single-handedly running the place. He had taken in children who were ostracised because they had HIV. They weren't even allowed to go to school because of the stigma attached to the illness. When I read that he was providing shelter and education to these kids, I approached him and started funding the orphanage."
From hosting charity celebrity T20 cricket matches to performing at fundraisers, Shetty has been actively finding resources to ensure smooth functioning of her NGO
