Most often in the news for yoga videos and her ‘food nuskhe’, actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra appears to have struck the coveted work-life balance. She shares an intriguing equation with her hubby Raj Kundra and recently opened up it.
While shooting for a dance reality show, Geeta Kapur probed co-judge Shilpa about the secret to marital bliss, reports ET. “It’s important to have the relationship of friendship in any relationship,” said Shilpa in a statement from Sony Entertainment Television.

Major throwback..this picture from 11 yrs ago when you proposed to me .. still remember you booking out the whole banqueting hall at Le Grand Hotel Paris..telling me it was just early supper at a friends, and you surprised me with a “ring” under the cloche and went on one knee with live musicians playing #ladyinred when I entered, the setting , Paris♥️ ..Ufff!! That proposal was straight out of my (every girls) dream.. You continue to manifest all my dreams into reality since then . Seeing you recreate that shot in #Teriyaad ( your 1st directorial venture)just made me sooo mushy.. lots of memories.. Cookie you are my Valentine now and forever..Congratulations on another feather in your cap @rajkundra9 ,🥳🤗Congratulations @muzikonerecords @robin_behl14. @anitahassanandani @rohitreddygoa loved you in the song.. thank you for being part of it.. you guys are sooo special 🤗🧿 #lovewins #love #happiness #gratitude #music #musicvideo #musicvideodirector #hubbylove #proud #proposal #proposeday
“I think Raj and I never feel that we are tied to this relationship of marriage. Even now we go on dates on Friday nights, we call each other girlfriend and boyfriend. So, we don’t want to feel that burden that we are together just because we are in a marriage,” Shilpa added.
Shilpa shares the reason why she believes many marriages fall apart. “They think they have some pressure so touchwood, that’s not there between us,” she says of her own marriage to Kundra. Aiding each other as a couple is clearly critical to the actress, wife and mum.

“Trust is also a bedrock of any relationship. It’s our 10th year now… It’s important to grow in any relationship, be it between friends, siblings or partners, otherwise you outgrow the relationship,” explains Shilpa.
“It’s very important for me that I learn from every relationship that I have with people and I have learnt a lot of things from Raj and even you have to keep upgrading yourself,” she reveals.
Apparently, a smattering of trust, ample support and regular date nights are the secrets to blissful wedlock. What do you believe? Tell us in the comments!
