I am in no hurry to return to movies: Shilpa Shetty

Added by harini on Sep 11, 2012

Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, who made her first public appearance post delivering a baby boy in Delhi recently to promote skincare product Olay, said that she was in no hurry to return to Bollywood and was enjoying being a mother right now.

“Right now, I am a full-time mother and completely enjoying it. I have no time for films. I am on a sabbatical for I don't know how long. Motherhood is such an amazing experience that everything else takes a back seat,” said the actress to IANS.

The actress said that her life had changed since the birth of her son Viaan Raj Kundra.

“Life has changed from being a woman to a mother but it is beautiful,” said Shilpa Shetty.

The actress confessed that getting back into shape post pregnancy was a stressful task but said at present her concentration isn’t on losing weight but on her son.

“There are surely lot of insecurities about your weight, skin and the way you look post-pregnancy. But all this becomes a lot easy when you have good and right advice. There are pressures on every woman but being a celebrity when we are scrutinised every time for everything, the pressure surely increases,” she said.

“But I haven't started losing weight because it is not on my priority list right now. It is my baby and all that is important for him that tops the list,” she added.

“Losing weight and being in shape requires a lot of hard work, a lot of time, a balanced diet. But when it comes to skin care, it is far easier. I think less is more when it comes to skin. The lesser you do it, the better it looks. That has always been my mantra,” she concluded.
