A family vacation is a time that makes you remember why you need to spend more time together and go places you have never visited. As you can always ample time to make money but not memories. And Bollywood actress, Shilpa Shetty Kundra definitely believes in it, too, as she enjoys her time in London with husband, Raj Kundra and son, Viaan Kundra.

We all know, Shilpa perfectly balances her work life and family time. We often see her go out on dinners dates with Raj and she is known to plan the craziest birthday parties for son, Viaan. We remember how in an interview, the actress had clearly stated that her family has always been her first priority.
Shilpa makes sure to share snippets of her life on Instagram, and she gave her fans a digital tour of London. Recently, she shared a cute video, wherein, we can see her feeding bread to the ducks. However, we totally loved her reaction at the end as she ran away because of the ducks. Shilpa captioned the video as, "Was it the bread or me they were after? Okay, they’ve got huge pointed beaks (ok maybe not so pointed!) Doing what we usually do every summer with my son ..Feeding the ducks.. #Waltononthethames #londondiaries #feedingtheducks #brave #fun #familytime". Take a look at the video and her fambam pictures below:
A couple of days ago, Shilpa had taken us to Pain Shill Park which is a naturally formed crystal grotto. She was thrilled to visit it, and she had written, "Nature at its best. At #painshillpark and amazed at this naturally formed crystal grotto. Extraordinarily exquisite formations.
A visual treat. Had to share it with you instafam.There’s beauty all around me #holidaymode #sightseeing #londondiaries #familytime #gratitude #surrey."
Shilpa is definitely an inspiration as she chose what has always been right for her at the moment. The actress believes in living in the present. Recently, in an interview with the Bombay Times, Shilpa had talked about maintaining a balance, and how she chose between films and her then-boyfriend, Raj. She had stated, "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."

Shilpa had further shared, "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 a throwback interview, the actress had talked about her decision to stop acting and had said, "It’s unfair to say that the girls haven’t lasted as much as the boys. Maybe they didn’t want to continue or other priorities took precedence. I try to stay relevant to whatever I’m doing by choosing interesting content. Whether it’s the big screen, small screen or even radio, it’s the content that drives me. It allows me to choose roles or do things that are different than the others."
She had further added, "My family is my priority and I was very clear about that. I think that’s why I went on a sabbatical and films always took a back seat. With the erratic schedule, there are times when you have to spend days without meeting your child. But now since my son is more settled and grown up, I think I’m sorted on the family front which is why I feel that I can adjust with it now. Earlier, I knew that I had to give a break to films."
