Amid controversies surrounding Actress Shilpa Shetty Husband Raj Kundra’s involvement in the production and distribution of pornography, Actress Shilpa Shetty shares a story on ‘faith’ on her Instagram Account. She shared an excerpt from a book that read ‘What we need is not the will to believe, but the wish to find out. Faith involves a leap of imagination. Real faith also involves searching, a desire to find answers to life’s most difficult questions. We may have faith that follows the teachings of organized religion, or we may have faith we have acquired through our own experiences and study. In either case, we do not betray our faith when we continue to search for meaning. Rather, we deepen and strengthen it. My faith sustains me and leads me on a continuous search for more knowledge.’
Earlier, she had also posted a video of herself doing Yoga on Instagram. She captioned it ‘Be your own warrior; strong enough to effect and defend positive change in your life ‘.
Shilpa Shetty has been an extremely resilient and strong woman. Throughout the case, she maintained her calm and requested people to not give in to any accusation that has not been proved yet.
