Mumbai, July 28 (IANS) Considering Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and her beau Raj Kundra are supposed to be business partners, it was strange not to see him at the opening of their first spa.
'He couldn't be here on Sunday because of other business commitments. In fact, he reached Mumbai Monday and I left for Jaipur,' Shilpa explained after the event that took place Sunday.
Shilpa didn't allow herself to miss Kundra at the event as she seemed more than happy with the bonding she shared with yesteryears diva Rekha. The ageless diva is no longer that unapproachable. This Shilpa discovered when she invited the actress to inaugurate her spa. Rekha not only agreed immediately and without fuss, she showed up for the event on the dot.
Shilpa says Rekha has always been a source of inspiration. 'She, according to me, is the perfect Bollywood diva. There's such a mystique surrounding her. We've been constantly in touch to discuss many things,' she said.
But now the friendship has gone beyond sharing beauty tips to another level of sharing confidences and philosophies of life. Apparently, after the spa was officially declared open, Rekha sent Shilpa a letter saying Shilpa is doing everything that she (Rekha) always wanted to do.
'It is one of the most heart-warming moments of my life. The two of us are now very close,' said Shilpa.
