  1. Very nice to see Shilpa Shetty in Sari . She looks beautiful in sari. Being a famous actress she makes it a point to visit her native Kudla and her parents and ancestors. Nice to see her with her son and husband and parents . She loves God, Family and native place. This is an inspiration for us. She is one of the fine beautiful actress of our time after making her debut in Bollyhood. Congratulations Mrs. Shetty.

    • Do not know if she was at anytime a famous actress in Bollywood. However, I know that Justice Lodha has pointed accusing fingers at her spouse for involvement in IPL match-fixing. How about awards being bestowed on them for their exemplary acts?

      They feel that by going to temples and doing poojas, Almighty God will forgive her spouse and herself, because she used to be always with him at these matches and she obviously knew what was going on. Do not tell me that Shilpa Shetty is a “Plain Jane”?
