Shilpa Shetty on post-baby body and being a business woman

Yummy mummy Shilpa Shetty, who is a mother to three and half month old Viaan, says she is happy being a business woman in no mood to scamper for roles post motherhood.

“My first flight out of Mumbai in eight months ,” gushed the actress who is in the capital to promote skin brand Olay. Shiilpa looked lovely in a flowing kaftan like kurta and palazzos. She seemed comfortable with her post baby flab and joked, “Haa what are you saying new mama’s aspire for a Shilpa Shetty body even i dont have a Shilpa Shetty body.”

Basking in the glow of motherhood Shilpa says she has her hands full with her baby and wouldn’t want it any other way.She also revealed that the time she gets off is not spent in the gym but catching up on sleep.

When asked if the recent scrutiny about Aishwarya’s post baby weight showed lack of sensitivity towards actresses, Shilpa said,”It is disconcerting and unjust. How do you expect a woman to get back into pre-baby shape within three months? Its’ not humanly possible.

Hormonal changes apart your body goes through its own changes and for your baby you need to be healthy. Even I ate the panjiris, methi ladoos and halwa.. Yes say yuck but it was important.”
