Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra are an ideal couple and often give goals to the millennials with their camaraderie. The duo had completed ten years of marital bliss but their mushy pictures with adorable captions make us wonder how they manage to keep the charm of their relationship even after so many years of being married. Shilpa and Raj’s love story is no less than a fairytale, what started as a business meeting had turned into something more precious.
Amidst the 21-day lockdown, the lovely couple has been treating their fans how they are making most of their time at home. On March 25, 2020, Shilpa took to her Instagram handle and shared a video of how her husband, Raj is staying fit without hitting the gym and extensive types of equipment. Along with the video, she wrote, “Here’s @rajkundra9 demonstrating how one doesn’t need any extensive equipments to stay fit! Just a minute of skipping (even the regular kind) works. So, pick up your skipping ropes and buss ek minute tak, #SkipKarona. Let’s add some cheer in each other’s lives in our own little way. Pakad rope aur India ko jod! Iss social distancing ke environment mein, aaiye fitness ke zariye dilon ko connect karein. Don’t forget to tag @kiren.rijiju and me in your videos! Let’s get #FitIndia, even in these tough times #SwasthRahoMastRaho #DontSkipRopeSkip #GetFit2020 #FitIndiaMovement #Skipping #SkippingRope #fitness #stayhome #staysafe.”
Coming back to their love story, Shilpa had met Raj for a business meeting where she was promoting a perfume brand and Raj was helping her with the promotions. With time, the two were seen spending a lot of time together which gave fodder to rumour mills and speculations of their blossoming love had emerged in the media. Raj was a married man before he had met Shilpa. Raj’s earlier marriage to Kavita turned out to be ugly in the love story of Raj and Shilpa and after all the allegations and blame game, the much-in-love couple had decided to tie the knot on November 22, 2009.

And later in an interview with the Mumbai Mirror, she had stated that she and Raj had been trying for a second child for five years. She had further stated that she always wanted to have a baby girl and had come up with the name Samisha when she was 21.
In a throwback interview with The Times of India, Shilpa had talked about her equation with Raj and how he is a doting daddy to their son, Viaan Raj Kundra. She had said, “I met Raj at a time in my life where I was riding this wave with the Big Brother success. He lived in London with his parents who had told him about me, ‘Yeh Shilpa Shetty aayee hai aur usne Indians ka naam ooncha kiya hai.’ He came to my hotel and the first thing was that he came and touched my mother’s feet even though he was a Londoner. And that sums up the person he is. He is very respectful and treats my parents like his.” (Also Read: Anushka Sharma Bakes A Cake For Her Dad's Birthday And It Made Her Husband, Virat Kohli Hungry)
