If there is one woman who can be credited for changing trends time and again, then it has to be birthday girl Shilpa Shetty Kundra. From being thrown from a terrace and shocking the audiences in her very debut film to becoming the first Indian celebrity to win UK’s Celebrity Big Brother; from being the first female celebrity to host Bigg Boss to having that worth-drooling body even after pregnancy (Let’s take a minute to thank Yoga), the actress has come a long way.
In a career that spans over two decades, the actress has given us some memorable performances and even memorable songs. So let us have a look at the most famous songs of her that made it into everybody’s ‘Favorites Playlist’ instantly.
