“For there is no friend like a sister, In calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, To fetch one if one goes astray, To lift one if one totters down, To strengthen whilst one stands” - Christina Rossetti, Goblin Market and Other Poems. Having a sister means having a best friend, constant cheerleader, honest critic, pillar of strength, shopping partner, gossip buddy, a partner in crime and whatnot, for life! No matter what, your sister will always be there for you, who understands you better than anyone in this world. Shilpa Shetty was blessed with her forever person when her younger sister, Shamita Shetty was born. With four years of an age gap, Shilpa and Shamita are each other’s constants and treat us with their Munki-Tunki diaries on social media.

To celebrate Christmas and to ring in New Year, the Shettys and Kundras had jetted off to Goa a few days ago. This vacation is also very special for the family as it is the first one for Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra’s baby girl, Samisha Shetty Kundra. Sharing a lovely family picture with Mr and Mrs Kundra, Sunanda Shetty, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Raj Kundra, Shamita Shetty, Viaan Raj Kundra and Samisha Shetty Kundra in one frame, the 45-year-old businessman had written, “When the daughters looking at daddy who looks like he is from out of space.

Speak about fitness or yoga and the first name that pops up in our mind is Shilpa Shetty Kundra. Just like Shilpa, her husband, Raj Kundra, her son, Viaan Raj Kundra and her sister, Shamita Shetty are also fitness and yoga enthusiasts. A glimpse of which was seen on their Goa vacation too, as Shilpa and Shamita brought back their childhood memories. Shilpa reposted Shamita’s post and captioned it as “Will always be a child at heart. Trust me, that too is an art. Love you, Tunki @shamitashetty_official Posted @withregram @shamitashetty_official Bringing childhood memories back. @theshilpashetty #childhoodmemories #love #sisterhood #sundayfunday.” Shilpa also recreated the same aasana with her son, Viaan and wrote, “#sondays be like” atop it.
It was in 1993 when Shilpa Shetty had made her debut in Bollywood with Baazigar, and 7 years later, in 2000, her sister, Shamita Shetty had entered into the industry with Mohabbatein. But do you know that Shilpa was insecure from her sister, Shamita when she had made her debut in 2000? In an interview with Pinkvilla on their show, No More Secrets, Shilpa had admitted that she was insecure of Shamita. Shilpa had confessed, "I always felt she's the better looking sister, the fairer one. She's a better actress and a dancer. So I'll admit this for the first time on this show that when she debuted, I did feel that nobody would give me work anymore after that." Speaking of her struggle, Shamita had stated, "In school, I was this girl who was athletic and good at sports. When I entered the film industry, it was suddenly different. It was a struggle to find my own identity. I knew about comparisons but the media was really harsh on me."
