Since 1993, there has been No Goriya who had Churaoed our Dil like Shilpa Shetty Kundra. “Mother, Homemaker, Actor, Entrepreneur, Fitness Enthusiast/Wellness Influencer & an Eternal Positive Thinker” – Shilpa’s Instagram bio perfectly defines the superwoman she is, who has proved that a woman’s life doesn’t end at 40, and there’s nothing in the world that a woman cannot do! Just like Shilpa, her eight-year-old son, Viaan Raj Kundra too is an all-rounder, following the footsteps of his superwoman mommy.

Be it painting, dancing, workouts, mimicking, baking or acting, seems like there’s nothing that this eight-year-old can’t do. When the love and pride of the Shetty-Kundra clan, Viaan Raj Kundra had turned 8 in May, his superstar mommy, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had posted a video, comprising of some cherishable moments of her son since his birth. Shilpa had captioned her video as “Happy 8th birthday, my darling son Viaan-Raj. Every step of the way, I promise I’ll be by your side, Whenever you need a hug, I’ll be right here, with my arms spread wide, I’ll never stop loving you and believing in you, ‘Coz you are my Sonshine and my pride! Happy 8th birthday, my darling son Viaan-Raj. I love you! @rajkundra9 #ViaanRajKundra #birthdayboy #happiness #family #blessed #gratitude.”
During the lockdown, if there’s one person who came like a ray of sunshine and a blessing from the God for the migrants and needy, it is Sonu Sood. Hailed as the real-life hero, Sonu was an inspiration in these difficult times. Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s son, Viaan Raj Kundra dedicated his school project to his ‘hero’, Sonu and it was a ‘proud mommy moment’ for the actress. Sharing the video made by Viaan, Shilpa wrote, “Viaan’s school project, dedicated to a true hero @sonu_sood Kids are keen observers of all that happens around them. Watching Viaan work on his recent school project reiterated this... The topic for his project was to talk about ‘people who made a difference’. With all that has happened in these past few months, he’s been observing and admiring all the work that my dear friend @sonu_sood has put in selflessly for the people in need.”
Revealing that it was 'conceptualised, written, dubbed for and edited by' her eight-year-old son, Viaan Raj Kundra, Shilpa Shetty Kundra continued, “In times when everyone stayed at home with fear, he decided to be brave and put others’ pain before his feelings. His brave and relentless service towards migrants who reached out to him really struck a chord with Viaan. So, he worked on this lovely animated video that he conceptualised, wrote, dubbed for, and edited as an ode to this hero (Viaan’s choice completely). I take immense pride in sharing this one with you all - a ‘proud mommy’ moment (Remember he’s only 8) This one is for you, Sonu! @rajkundra9.” Sonu Sood, in complete awe, commented on the video, “Humbled big big hug Viaan. Love u loads buddy. You are a superstar.” (Also Read: Shilpa Shetty's Gift For 7-Month-Old Daughter Samisha Shetty Kundra Is All About Preserving Memories)
During the lockdown, not only adults but the kids too, had donned the hat of a painter, sketcher, baker, cook, gardener and whatnot to explore their interests and hobbies. Shilpa Shetty Kundra's little one, Viaan Raj Kundra had also explored his creative side and the proud mommy had often shared its glimpses. Sometime back, Shilpa had posted an IG story of Viaan's painting of an evil eye and had captioned it with the hashtags, #evileye, #art and #proudmommy.
It was on February 21, 2020, when Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra had given a pleasant surprise and had announced that they have completed their family. Their firstborn, Viaan Raj Kundra got promoted to ‘big brother’ and the Shetty-Kundra clan had welcomed a baby girl in the family, whom they have named Samisha Shetty Kundra. To mark Samisha’s third-month birthday, Shilpa had posted a picture of Viaan, playing with his newborn sister, Samisha and the doting mummy couldn’t stop admiring her little ones. Shilpa had written, “Happy 3 months my princess #samisha” atop her IG story. (Also Read: Shilpa Shetty Grooves To 'Sauda Khara Khara' With Mom-In-Law On Her Birthday, Viaan Kundra Joins Too)
