Mumbai, Dec 18 (IANS) She is in a comfortable space - balancing her life as a wife, mother, celebrity and businesswoman. Shilpa Shetty, who is returning to showbiz as a judge of dance reality show "Nach Baliye 5", says so far, she is handling her roles well.
Shilpa gave birth to her first child - son Viaan Raj Kundra - in May this year. Is it not tough to leave the little one behind for her shoots?
"It's very hard. But life has to move on. I guess life's like that... it's all about striking the right balance," Shilpa said here during the launch of dance reality show "Nach Baliye 5".
"I shoot for one day in a week for 'Nach Baliye', and that is also when he comes to the sets. All other meetings and appointments and jobs are adjusted according to his timings. He is nearly seven months now, so I am enjoying it (motherhood)," Shilpa added.
The 37-year-old, who had put on post-pregnancy weight, seems to be almost in perfect shape now. Dressed in chic, black shimmer palazzo pants and a trendy cream-coloured top, she used a front bow around her stomach as the perfect camouflage for any extra pounds. Nevertheless, she looked quite charming.
Shilpa is looking forward to judge "Nach Baliye 5", which features 11 celebrity couples. She is especially impressed by TV actress Smita Bansal, who delivered a girl in August this year.
"What are you asking me? Ask Smita Bansal! She is a perfect example... she is a different level of striking a balance. It's been just a bit over three months that she has delivered, and here she is," said Shilpa, who is enjoying her comeback in front of the camera.
On the judges' panel of "Nach Baliye 5", she will be joined by director Sajid Khan and choreographer Terence Lewis.
"It feels great to be back to work. I like the medium of television and I am happy that I can now meet my audience through 'Nach Baliye'," Shilpa said.
"We have shot one episode, and we had great fun. Sajid creates a laugh riot on the sets, he is so entertaining, and Terence is so sweet. There is a lot of positive energy on the set and I can say with confidence that this will be the best season of 'Nach Baliye'," she said.
Shilpa was previously seen on the small screen as a judge on dance reality shows "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 1" and "Zara Nachke Dikha 2". She had also hosted the first season of "Bigg Boss".
