Shilpa Shetty was heart broken when she got to know about Akshay Kumar’s illicit affairs. She was even more broken when she realised that he was cheating on her all along. She was close to being a recluse after this heart break. She then accepted a movie that no one wanted to be a part of and that changed her career. She was appreciated and things were blooming for her. After her stint in Big Brother, she got to know Raj Kundra and they hit it off immediately. Soon Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra were madly in love and this is how it all went..
Jab they met
Well, this isn’t a picture of when they met but don’t they look gorgeous? They aren’t exactly my OTP (one true pairing) but they are very happy. It was after Shilpa Shetty’s appearance in Big Brother that she met Raj Kundra, a UK based NRI. He wasn’t any NRI. He was married with a pissed off wife. Shilpa was heart broken and didn’t really give a care about what others thought of her and there she was allegedly dating Mr Kundra.
friends turn business partners
This was it. This step made us so sure that they were romantically involved. Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra decided to turn business partners when they co-owned a cricket team. That smug look on Shilpa Shetty’s face and that proud look on Raj Kundra’s face says it all. Shilpa gets a team and Raj gets a girl! Fancy, don’t you think?
the big engagement
They were friends, then business partners and this pressure and the hide and seek they were playing with the media was getting on their nerves. Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra decided to come clean about their relationship and within a week they announced their grand engagement. The mahurat was auspicious and everyone they loved and cared about were around them so what was the point of delaying it? Shilpa looked gorgeous in her pink Manish Malhotra saree and the HUGE 3 crore rock on her ring finer. Raj, as always looked modest in his white kurta pyjama.
big fat indian wedding
Now that they were official, they decided to get married quickly. At least as quickly as they could. Hello!! The big fat Indian wedding needs a lot of preparation! They decided to tie the knot on November 22nd given the circumstances and it was one huge affair. Red Red and Red. Shilpa decided to go all red on her wedding day and wore a red lehenga-style sari by Tarun Tahiliani and Raj opted for a red brocade sherwani by Shantanu and Nikhil. It’s kinda sweet how they decided to match their outfits.
fairy tale reception
And then on their reception, Shilpa wore something very confusing and golden and bright by Tarun Tahiliani and Raj Kundar again matched Shilpa by wearing an equally confusing and bling sherwani by Shantanu and Nikhil. The crème de la crème of Bollywood attended the reception and blessed the happy couple all the happiness, joy, luck and many such nice thing. Shilpa and Raj were practically glowing!
first trip to mandir
They were married, all the functions and parties were done. Now it was time for them to get blessed by the Lord. Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra visited Shilpa’s guru Kalki Bhagavan at Satyavedu, near Tirupati. Again, both of them tried their best to match their outfits and looked adorable!
What is a perfect marriage with a super perfect honeymoon? Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra decided to tour United States of America for their honeymoon. We were thinking they’d tour United Kingdom, given the fact that UK is where they met and where it all started. But never mind. If they are happy, we are happy!!
glow and bump says it all
And one fine day, Shilpa Shetty gave Raj Kundra the best gift she ever could. She gave him the news of lil Kundra. They didn’t know the gender but both of them were very happy! Shilpa was glowing and Raj was the happiest man on earth.
Introducing Viaan raj kundra
Few months later, Shilpa Shetty an Raj Kundra were blessed with a baby boy. They named him Viaan Raj Kundra. Shilpa tweeted about this little bundle of joy and so did Raj. They even went to an extent of creating him a twitter account. Lucky chap, eh?
a happy IPL family
Aww.. Look at them! Daddy Kundra, Mommy Kundra and Baby Kundra. The best part? They are one close knit family who firmly believe in making appearances together. The Kundra’s are always spotted together and we love that about them. Viaan is not camera shy and loves posing for the shutterbugs. They are just an amazing happy lil family!
