And now, 11 years later, her lover-turned-husband, Raj recreated their ‘proposal moment’ in his first directorial venture and Shilpa can’t stop mushing about it! On February 8, 2019, a sweet melody by Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, ‘Teri Yaad’ featuring Rohit Reddy and Anita Hassanandani Reddy and directed by Raj Kundra will be released for the music lovers as Valentine’s gift.

Sometime back, Shilpa shared a gorgeous photo of herself on her official Instagram account and captioned it as, “All set to sparkle and shine in the capital tonight!” To her post, her doting husband, Raj commented, “Mam, you are so hot! I want to take a selfie with you, please”. In reply to this, Shilpa wrote, “Brrrrr @rajkundra9 Sir it’s soooo cold here in Delhi, need you to make me hot”, followed by a hug and a heart emoji.
To this comment of Shilpa’s came an interesting and funny reply by Raj that could be read as, “If you became any hotter, I would be worried about global warming mam!” Here’s the screenshot of the adorable-cum-romantic social media banter of husband and wife:
Sharing that it was love at first sight for him and in all praises for his superwoman, Shilpa, Raj stated in an interview with Filmfare, “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.”
Shilpa too, reciprocates Raj’s love and was once quoted as saying, “I have found my home in your heart, and love in your soul. I’m the luckiest girl in the world.” She also shared in another interview, “I've always said that the day I decide to tie the knot it is going to be for good. I have often wondered who the right person would be and I've come to realise that for me it is Raj. I'm completely sure he is my soulmate.” (Also Read: Radhika Apte Talks About How She And Her Husband Benedict Taylor Settle Their Fights)
