Shilpa had gone through the toughest phases of her life in 2021, after her husband, Raj Kundra's arrest. For the unversed, Raj was arrested in July by the Mumbai Police for his alleged involvement in pornography. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Shilpa had talked about the difficult time for her family and how she had overcome it.

The actress had got trolled mercilessly for the same, but she did not let anything hamper her professional commitments. Revealing that she had wanted to set an example, especially for her son, Viaan, Shilpa had continued in the same interview:

"I wanted to show Viaan that even in difficult circumstances, you have to have work ethics, and have to rise like a phoenix. He has learnt through me, and I hope I am able to give them the values our parents inculcated in us. For me to get out there and start working was teaching my son through practice. You are never prepared for hardships in life. They suddenly hit you, but they make you stronger. I didn’t know I was strong, but it’s a good feeling to know I can combat anything now."
