Happy birthday my son, love you more than you would ever know #unconditionallove #birthdayboy #6 #gratitude #blessings”.
Recently, Shilpa Shetty Kundra along with her mom Sunanda Shetty, sister Shamita Shetty and son Viaan Raj Kundra had visited the ISKCON temple, Mumbai, on the auspicious occasion of Ram Navami. This expedition did make the oldest member of the Shetty clan tired and the junior most Shetty-Kundra made sure that his nani relaxes well. Shilpa shared a lovely glimpse of Viaan giving a foot massage to his grandmother with his tiny hands, which made not only Shilpa but us too, go aww over the little kiddo!
Shilpa Shetty Kundra can be heard asking her son, Viaan Raj Kundra in the video, “What are you doing Viaan?” To which, the six-year-old replies, “Massaging”.

On May 13, 2018, Shilpa Shetty Kundra got all teary when she received the first-ever handmade card from her son, Viaan Raj Kundra as a wish for his all-rounder mother on Mother’s Day. Posting the pictures of the card she received from Viaan, she had written, “This is the best role of my life, and I already won an award in the form of you before I played it. Still feels like yesterday when you were inside me.. Gosh! how time flies. Its amazing to now see my heart beat outside of me...Viaan-Raj , Thank you for choosing me And I got my FIRST handwritten card today. Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, love you to the moon and back ..and to all you #SuperMoms #wonderwomen, Sending u all a #grouphug #loveyourmom #respect #gratitude”.
Sharing an instance when her intrigued son, Viaan Raj Kundra asked her why his schoolmates call his mother by her name, Shilpa Shetty Kundra recalled, “As a child, Viaan has no sense of why people are coming to take pictures of me. He still doesn’t know the concept of being popular and famous. I can see that he has now gradually started to get his head around it. Now he is like, ‘mama you are famous’. Whenever he sees me on the television, he knows that I am famous. His friends call me Shilpa Shetty and he often gets curious and asks, ‘why do they call you Shilpa Shetty?’. It’s wonderful to interact with children. They come up the most interesting questions.”
Shilpa Shetty Kundra too, believes that it is the role of a mother that she has played so far, and was quoted as saying on the same lines, “Thank God for phones, where you can see your child. I don’t think I would be able to work without it. Being a mother is the best role that I have played so far.” (Also Read: Sakshi Tanwar Reveals The One Thing That Daughter, Dityaa Do Whenever She Does Something Wrong)
