Shilpa and Raj's love story is no less than a Bollywood movie, and their proposal story is a hilarious one. On Romedy Now's The Love Laugh Live Show, Shilpa had recalled her first reaction when her then-beau, Raj Kundra had proposed her with 'just 5-carat' ring. Revealing how Raj had planned the proposal, Shilpa had shared, "He'd booked out the whole banqueting hall at The Grand. A bit OTT... he had like these violinists playing... He conned me into it, he said we are having lunch at a friend's place so dress up well. Not casually, just dress up well, and my sister told me to wear red, so it was already planned. He told me from Mumbai we are going to this really cool place. I had no clue, but he had already asked my parents. So, the setting was all there, and the cloche opened, and he did propose in the last course, dessert, and it was this diamond ring."
On Pinkvilla's talk show, No More Secrets, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had revealed how she had fallen in love with her now-husband, Raj Kundra. Shilpa had shared that they too had a 'Let's just be friends' phase. Shilpa had talked about how Raj had tried to impress her and had said, "He was trying to woo me with Versace bags. In fact, he sent me three bags of the same style in three different colours, and I was astonished. He was constantly throwing hints at me. But, I asked him to give it a full-stop as I want to spoil the friendship and bond we shared. Moreover, I was never going to shift to London, though I was dying to get married at that time (laughs)."
