Shilpa Shetty pens down her second book on recipes

Mumbai:  Bollywood actress and entrepreneur Shilpa Shetty, who debuted as an author with her book 'The Great Indian Diet', is coming up with the second volume.

"In the coming days, I will be announcing a big news in the health sector. I am very excited about that. I am writing my second book. The first book 'The Great Indian Diet' is already a bestseller, so on the back of that I am doing the second book now," she said on Wednesday at an event to promote the '#SmallStepsToHealthyHeart' initiative by Saffola life.

Asked what the book is about, Shilpa shied from revealing details and said: "It will be something about recipes."

The 'Life in a... Metro' star is one of the few actresses who has maintained her gorgeous looks flawlessly. 

The fashionable diva said: "Staying healthy and fit, it has been a way of living my life. I just feel that making people aware of their health has become a way of life for me."

"I have made modifications in my life and people can see it. They ask me about my fitness. I don't stop myself to eat. I love food but I eat in a proper way," Shilpa said.

"I think as a celebrity I should make people aware that they are consuming food in a wrong way. Having said that, I want to tell them what they should do or eat to become healthy and fit," she added.

"In rural areas, people live a simple life and eat normal food. They can't afford junk food. Keeping your food simple is the idea to stay healthy," Shilpa, 41, advised.
