"working towards my fitness is no longer a job."
Shilpa Shetty Kundra is set to launch a brand new chat show called Shape of You.
The Bollywood actress, who is also a known fitness enthusiast, will interview a new guest every episode about their health journey.

The 46-year-old is also a wellness influencer and regularly shares her diet and exercise regime with her 23.6 million followers on Instagram.
Shetty is a particular proponent of yoga, which she is known to have built into her daily workouts alongside celebrities such as Malaika Arora.
The Phir Milenge (2004) star also has her own app called the Simple Soulful App which provides yoga, exercise, immunity and diet programs.

Speaking about fitness as well as her upcoming chat show, Shetty said:
“For me, working towards my fitness is no longer a job.
“I enjoy and firmly believe in the idea of aligning your body, soul, and mind to lead a happy life.
“Everyone has their own journey and discovery in the process.
“I am so glad to have a talk show where I can get a chance to understand someone else’s approach and get inspired.
