Shilpa Shetty Kundra (born 8 June 1975) is an Indian actress, film producer, dancer, author, businesswoman and a former model. Shetty made her screen debut in the thriller Baazigar (1993) which garnered her two Filmfare Awards nominations, including one for Best Supporting Actress. She followed it with a leading role in the highly successful action comedy Main Khiladi Tu Anari (1994) in which she played dual roles. After this initial success, she starred in a series of unsuccessful films with the exception of her supporting role in the successful action musical Jaanwar (1999). The same year her item number in the song “UP Bihar Lootne” from the crime drama Shool garnered widespread attention.

Shetty’s career saw a resurgence as a leading lady by the turn of the millennium with the romantic drama Dhadkan (2000), marking a turning point in her career. This was followed by roles in the box office hits Indian (2001) and Rishtey (2002), which brought her praise and another Filmfare nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Shetty received critical acclaim for playing a career woman suffering from AIDS in the drama Phir Milenge (2004), which garnered her several nominations including the Filmfare Award for Best Actress. She subsequently appeared in successful films such as the action thriller Dus (2005), the drama Life in a… Metro (2007), which garnered her critical praise, and the sports drama Apne (2007). She was also noted for her dance performance in the song “Shut Up & Bounce” from the 2008 romantic comedy Dostana. Following this she took a break from acting in films.

In 2006, she ventured into reality television by judging the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. In early 2007, Shetty joined the fifth season of the U.K reality show ‘’Celebrity Big Brother’’. During her stay in the house, Shetty received much international media coverage and attention for the racism she faced by the fellow contestants and for ultimately winning the show. This was followed by her hosting the second season of the reality show Bigg Boss. Shetty has since taken on the role of judge on several Indian dance reality shows such as Zara Nachke Dikha (2010), Nach Baliye (2012–14) and Super Dancer (2016–present).

In addition to acting in films, Shetty is a celebrity endorser for brands and products and is vocal about issues such as feminism and animal rights. Shetty has worked with PETA since 2006 as part of an advertising campaign against the use of wild animals in circuses. She is also a fitness enthusiast in India and launched her own fitness Yoga DVD in 2015. She is involved in several fitness campaigns such as the Fit India Movement launched by the Government of India. Shetty was awarded Champions of Change Award for her work on the Swachh Bharat Mission cleanliness campaign. From 2009 to 2015, she was a part-owner of the Indian Premier League team Rajasthan Royals. Shetty is married to businessman Raj Kundra with whom she has two children.
