Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty says that her wedding date has been finalized, but she will announce it only when her sister Shamita is by her side.
“I know everyone’s eager to know about the wedding date. All I can say is yes it’s been finalised and I will make an official announcement as soon as I know when Shamita’s coming out,” Shilpa, who got engaged to London-based Raj Kundra Saturday after a courtship of about two years, posted on her blog.
Shamita is currently participating in the Colors’ reality show “Bigg Boss 3?. She is locked in the house with 10 more inmates and has no connection with the world outside.
Shilpa says she missed her sister.
“It’s been a time of both joy and sorrow for me. The joy is obvious because Raj and I feel happy to take our relationship to the next level, but as most of you know my sister Shamita is still in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house and could not attend. She doesn’t even know.
“The date was decided a week ago and we all came to the consensus that we should go ahead because another good mahurat (auspicious time) was a long way off. And considering Raj’s parents and relatives were down from London for a week, so it seemed convenient,” she wrote.
“I wanted to have Shamita there during this special moment, but I had to be considerate towards Raj’s family too. So for all those who wanted to know why I went ahead without Shamita, it was a difficult decision but this is the answer.”
Shilpa admits that when her sister comes out of “Bigg Boss” house, the news of the engagement will shock her.
