Shilpa Shetty turns down 10 crore slimming pills ad deal


Shilpa Shetty never endorses products that she doesn’t believe. Lately, the 44-year-old actress turned down Rs 10 crore slimming pills ad deal. Shilpa told a tabloid, "I can't sell something that I don't believe in. 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."

According to Mid-day, Shilpa was offered Rs 10 crore for the deal but she rejected, "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.

Meanwhile, Shilpa Shetty with return to silver screen after a break of 13 years with ‘Nikamma’.
