We know how talented B-town stars are when it comes to entertaining their audience. But what sometimes comes as a surprise to know that their little ones are also equally talented and can give tough competition to their star parents. Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra's 9-year-old talented son, Viaan Raj Kundra is a star in the making and the sneak-peeks shared by the star parents on their respective social media handles are proofs of the same. It was in May 2012 when Shilpa and Raj had welcomed their first child, Viaan into their lives and since then, he has been the heartbeat of the Shetty-Kundra family. In February 2020, Viaan became a big brother as Shilpa and Raj welcomed their second child, Samisha Shetty Kundra via surrogacy.
As her Instagram bio says – 'Mom, Wife, Actor, Entrepreneur, Mindful Yogi, Wellness Influencer & An Eternally Grateful Positive Thinker', Shilpa Shetty Kundra is indeed a superwoman. Just like Shilpa, her son, Viaan Raj Kundra too, is an all-rounder following the footsteps of his superwoman mommy. Be it painting, dancing, working out, mimicking, baking or acting, seems like there's nothing that this nine-year-old can't do. Shilpa and Raj leave no opportunity to express on social media, how proud they are of their son, Viaan. For instance, during the lockdown in 2020, when Viaan had explored his creative side and made a painting of an evil eye, Shilpa had shared it on her IG stories, with the hashtags, #evileye, #art and #proudmommy.
With lockdown imposed in major parts of the nation, even the actors are completing their professional commitments, working from home. When Shilpa Shetty Kundra had rehearsed for a dance sequence at her home, her son, Viaan Raj Kundra made the most of that time, learning from the best, i.e., his mother. In a throwback BTS video shared by Raj Kundra, Viaan can be seen imitating his mother, Shilpa as she grooved to a song on the set organised at her home. And we must say, Viaan gave a tough competition to Shilpa with his on-point moves. Raj captioned the video as "Behind the scenes LITERALLY!! #throwback set masti Like Mother Like Son @viaanrajkundra @theshilpashetty #gratitude."
On Mother's Day 2021, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had expressed how grateful she is to have mothers, who can guide her and kids, who keep her going. Sharing a picture with her mother, Sunanda Shetty, mother-in-law, Usha Rani Kundra, and children, Viaan Raj Kundra and Samisha Shetty Kundra, Shilpa had written, "All I ever need from life is my mothers to guide me and my kids to keep me going. Grateful for them every day... Happy Mother’s Day to all the strong & amazing mommies out there. @sunandashetty10 @rajkundra9 #usharanikundra #HappyMothersDay #throwbackphoto #Moms #famjam #love #gratitude #blessed."
When Viaan Raj Kundra had turned 9 on May 21, 2021, his doting mother, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had posted a throwback video, and the little one's excited birthday dance, in the end, had melted our hearts. Shilpa had captioned the video as "There's so much to say, So much to do... You’re growing up too fast, I’m not even done hugging you. This video is when you were 4. We know how much your birthday means to you and how you would look forward to it, but not being able to have any playdates for over a year & a half, and not be able to celebrate your birthday 2 years in a row without any fuss... makes me so proud of the sensitive, compassionate, and loving boy that you’re growing up to be."
Praising Viaan Raj Kundra for his brave fight with COVID-19 and how beautifully he had taken the role of being a doting brother to his baby sister, Samisha Shetty Kundra, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had continued, "You fought Covid-19 so bravely, you are just as excited about your virtual classes as you were about going to school, you have understood how necessary it is to always wear a mask and maintain social distance with outsiders! You’ve not only adjusted to the new normal without any complaints or tantrums, but also taken on the role of being a doting elder brother so beautifully. Have to admire how beautifully you have done it with your sense of humour and maturity. This Lockdown has made you so responsible so soon?!?! Must say, I’m a proud mommy! Happy 9th birthday, my darling baby Viaan-Raj. May you always shine, the brightest star wherever you go Mumma and papa lovvveee youuuu @rajkundra9."
Don't you think Viaan is a star in the making? We wish him good luck and success in his future endeavours!
