NEW DELHI: 

HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Shilpa was offered a deal for slimming pills
  2.  “I can’t sell something that I don’t believe in,” said Shilpa
  3. “A lifestyle modification works so much better,” she added

Actress Shilpa Shetty, who has a reputation for being a fitness enthusiast, recently rejected an endorsement offer for a brand of Ayurvedic slimming pills, reported mid-day. Revealing the reason behind her turning down the deal, the 44-year-old actress told the publication that she would never represent a product which she won’t endorse herself: “I can’t sell something that I don’t believe in.” Elaborating on his point, Shilpa Shetty added she believes the best alternative to slimming pills is a lifestyle change and that’s what she would rather advocate for: “Slimming pills and fad diets can be tempting since they promise instant results, but nothing beats the sense of pride of being committed to your routine and eating right. A lifestyle modification works so much better in the long term.”

Mid-day reports that Shilpa was offered a handsome amount of Rs. 10 crore for the deal, which she rejected anyway: “She was being offered Rs. 10 crore for the consolidated advertising campaign,” the publication quoted a source as saying.

“But she has always been clear about adopting the healthy route to fitness. A strict yoga practitioner and a firm believer in the concept of eating right, she has, time and again, cautioned youngsters to not fall for fad diets or unnatural substitutes for weight loss. It was a no-brainer for her to let the deal pass,” the source added.
