The ‘top secret’ to a happy relationship, or for that matter, a happy marriage is to keep making your soulmate feel special. Famous B-town diva, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and her hubby, Raj Kundra swear by this rule and hence, they are living their 'happily ever after' journey like bosses! And when it is any one’s birthday or anniversary, they try to make it the best day of their lives, by making each other feel the most special in this whole world.
Today, on September 9, 2019, Raj Kundra has turned a year older and Shilpa made sure to make it the most happening day of his life. She had hosted a grand bash for the birthday boy on the evening of September 8, 2019, wherein all their common friends were present and Shilpa’s sister, Shamita Shetty was also spotted. The celebrations took place at the current favourite place of the celebs, Bastian, Mumbai. (You May Like: Surveen Chawla's Five Month Old Baby Girl, Eva Makes Her Television Debut, Video Inside)

To make Raj’s birthday extra special, Shilpa took to her official Instagram handle and posted a heartfelt birthday wish. Sharing a lovely video of their couple pictures, solo pictures of the birthday boy and a few with their little munchkin, Shilpa wrote, “Happiest Birthday my #Cookie, you are the King of my heart, Man of my dreams and the Love of my life. You are the bestest father, son, brother, and husband and I’m one helluva lucky woman. May all your dreams come true because you really deserve it all. Wishing our #superhero @rajkundra9 tones of happiness, love, success, and great health above all.” To this heartfelt post of Shilpa, Raj couldn’t resist commenting and thanked her with a little pinch of fun. He wrote, “Awww cookie thanks for that beautiful message bas kar pagli rulaye gi kya.” Take a look at her wish and his comment:
Do you know once Shilpa had to choose between a film and her then-boyfriend, Raj Kundra? Well, yes, recalling the same, she had earlier shared that she got an ultimatum from Raj about their marriage. Shilpa had retorted, “I had been working since I was 17 and I got married at 32. I was ready for marriage. I wanted to have a baby, which is one of the key reasons to get married. I was eager to accept a new role in my life — that of a wife, a mother, and so on. I’m very middle-class in the way I function and think. I don’t regret the fact that I married at a time when I was doing really well in my career. Being a wife is a great role to play in life and I do that to the T, par mujhe apni pehchaan bhi chahiye thi. I didn’t want to be dependent on another person in any manner. I am a feminist in that sense, I want my space to make my choices. I remember I was shooting for a film called The Man with Sunny Deol. His dates were constantly getting shuffled. Raj (husband) gave me an ultimatum to get married or quit the relationship. I had to choose between The Man and my man.” (Also Read: Anita Hassanandani's Husband, Rohit Cannot Keep Calm As The Duo Is Soon Going To Complete 10 Years)
And had gone on to share, “I chose the latter. And guess what? Sunny eventually shelved the movie. Imagine, if I had made a different choice back then, I would have been sitting at a salon colouring my greys without my man (laughs!). Sometimes, you have to make a decision at the moment. I don’t live in the past or the future. I live for now. I had a chance to headline Eastenders (British TV series) and settle in London, but I was keen to begin a new phase of my life. I wanted to go on holidays, enjoy my time and find peace. When Raj proposed to me, it all felt right. And trust me, I am not a conventional thinker. I was okay with the idea of being in a live-in relationship and having a baby out of wedlock, if my parents had permitted me to do it. But I made some conventional choices for the love of my mother and the respect that I have for the institution of marriage.”
In an interview with the Filmfare, Raj Kundra had once stated what drew him towards Shilpa. He had then shared, “It was love at first sight. From the moment I saw her, I knew I’d love her to be my life partner. She’s got an angelic side to her. Her homely side grew on me as I got to know her. She’s a great housewife. She’s a supermom! She’s the wind beneath my wings and I try to be her support system. We are each other’s strengths.” (Checkout: Raveena Tandon Is Soon Going To Be A 'Nani', Hosts Daughter's Baby Shower, Pictures Inside)
