Shilpa Shetty Kundra turns down offer to host cooking show!
Tv Talks Networks , 9 December 2015
Former actress- turned- businesswoman and now author Shilpa Shetty Kundra whose book, 'The Great Indian Diet', made it to Amazon and Nielsen's bestseller list, was recently approached to host a cooking show on a leading food channel.
Cashing in on the popularity of Shilpa's book and the concept of traditional home-cooked Indian food, the channel producers approached Shilpa to host the show, which would be based on the principles and recipes included in her bestselling health and nutrition book.
Though the concept did interest Shilpa, she had to turn it down as it required her to shoot in the end of this month, so that it could go on air early next year. During that period, Shilpa had to fulfill some of her other professional commitments before she took off with her family for their annual holiday.
Shilpa, "I am really happy the book has done so well. I have received an interesting offer that was taking the concept of book ahead. However, I had to turn it down due to prior commitments. Having said that, I surely want to take the concept ahead on various platforms and encourage people to be fit and healthy."
