Its been more than a decade since Bollywood actress, Shilpa Shetty Kundra stole our hearts with her amazing dance stint in the song, Main Aai Hoon U.P. Bihar Lootne from the film, Shool (1999). Her dance performance and thumkas are still loved by millions and billions of Indians. She might have left the movie business, but movie business hasn’t left her as she is one of the popular A-listers celebrities of the Tinseltown. And looks like her son, Viaan Raj Kundra is following her footsteps. (Recommend Read: Shah Rukh Khan Reveals What His Kids, Aryan Khan And Suhana Khan Had Asked Him On His 54th Birthday)
We already know Viaan is a carbon copy of his mother, Shilpa and loves dancing just like her. At a young age of seven, he has mastered the art of dancing and is acing cartwheels. We still remember in 2016, Viaan had graced Shilpa’s dance reality show, Super Dancer with his father, Raj Kundra and had made headlines with his performance on the song, Tattad Tattad. That was the first time when we got to know that Viaan’s ‘Bollywood genes’ rule over his ‘business genes’ (you know what we mean).
On November 3, 2019, Shilpa shared with us another glimpse of Viaan’s dancing talent. Oh boy, we are still gasping for breath after seeing him perform at his school. In the video, we can see Viaan acing his cartwheel move which was especially dedicated to Bollywood actor, Tiger Shroff. Alongside the video, Shilpa wrote, “Haaaaiiiii mera Beta!! Viaan-Raj s Punjabi genes shining through in his first school performance showcasing #incredibleindia The cartwheel was for you @tigerjackieshroff.” Take a look at his performance below:
Shilpa Shetty was at the peak of her career when she had embraced motherhood. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, she had revealed the reason for not taking any films after her son, Viaan was born. She had said, “It’s unfair to say that the girls haven’t lasted as much as the boys. Maybe they didn’t want to continue or other priorities took precedence. I try to stay relevant with whatever I’m doing by choosing interesting content. Whether it’s the big screen, small screen or even radio, it’s the content that drives me. It allows me to choose roles or do things that are different than the others.” (Also Read: Malaika Arora Posts A Picture Of Son, Arhaan Khan Taking Care Of His Mommy)
In the same interview, Shilpa had also shared that it is her family that tops the list of her priorities and everything else took a back seat for her. She had stated, “With the erratic schedule, there are times when you have to spend days without meeting your child. But now since my son is more settled and grown-up, I think I’m sorted on the family front which is why I feel that I can adjust with it now. Earlier, I knew that I had to give a break to films.”
In an interview with the Bombay Times, Shilpa had talked about maintaining a balance, and how she chose between films and her then-boyfriend and now-husband, Raj. She had stated, “I had been working since I was 17 and I got married at 32. I was ready for marriage. I wanted to have a baby, which is one of the key reasons to get married. I was eager to accept a new role in my life — that of a wife, a mother, and so on. I’m very middle-class in the way I function and think. I don’t regret the fact that I married at a time when I was doing really well in my career. Being a wife is a great role to play in life and I do that to the T, par mujhe apni pehchaan bhi chahiye thi. I didn’t want to be dependent on another person in any manner. I am a feminist in that sense, I want my space to make my choices. I remember I was shooting for a film called The Man with Sunny Deol. His dates were constantly getting shuffled. Raj (husband) gave me an ultimatum to get married or quit the relationship. I had to choose between The Man and my man.” (Don’t Miss: Priya Ahuja’s Recent Maternity Shoot Flaunting Her Baby Bump Is Cuteness Overloaded)
