Although her husband Raj Kundra is being held in a pornography case, actress Shilpa Shetty has published an excerpt from a book about faith. Shilpa Shetty took to Instagram late Monday night to share a photo of a book that featured a quotation by Bertrand Russell. “What we need is not the will to believe, but the desire to learn,” it said.
Shilpa Shetty published a paragraph that stated, “Faith necessitates a leap of faith. True faith also entails a search, a desire to discover solutions to life’s most perplexing issues. We can have faith that is based on the teachings of an organized religion or faith that is based on our own experiences and research. We do not violate our faith in any scenario by continuing to seek meaning. Rather, we strengthen and develop it.”
“My faith sustains me—and leads me on a never-ending pursuit for further knowledge,” it said.
Shilpa had posted a yoga video on Instagram earlier in the day, in which she performed various asanas. “Be your fighter; powerful enough to affect and defend positive change in your life,” she wrote a long essay accompanying the video.
Meanwhile, Shilpa recently returned to the dancing reality show Super Dancer 4 as a judge. She had taken a vacation from the show following Raj Kundra’s arrest. She also uploaded photos from a session for the dance reality show last week. “There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise,” she said in the caption.
Shilpa made her first statement in response to Raj’s incarceration earlier this month.
Raj, along with 11 other people, was detained on July 19 on charges of allegedly making pornographic videos.
