MUMBAI: Actress Shilpa Shetty says she does not believe in the stereotyping people face once they cross a certain age.
"Ageing is a process we have absolutely no control over. But, stereotyping what you can and cannot do just because you have crossed a certain age is something I don't believe in," she wrote on Instagram on Tuesday.
She added: "The years add a lot of wear & tear to the bones, nerves, & muscles; but, consistently taking care of ourselves is important. Follow just three simple rules:
1. Eat right
2. Exercise regularly
3. Smile and laugh more often
The body may have reached a certain age, but if you are young at heart then the world is your oyster."
The actress also shared a video that captures her jumping on a trampoline with son Viaan. The video has a message that reads: "Aging is inevitable, but how you want to age is a choice."
She shared the post with hashtags: #ShilpaKaMantra, #SwasthRahoMastRaho, #ExerciseWell, #EatClean, #SmileMore, #StayHappy, #YoungAtHeart and #AgeIsJustANumber.
On the work front, Shilpa is all set to return to the screen after 13 years with two releases, "Hungama 2" and "Nikamma".
Directed by Sabbir Khan, the action-packed romantic comedy film "Nikamma" also features Abhimanyu Dasani and Shirley Setia. "Hungama 2" also stars Paresh Rawal, Pranitha Subhash and Meezan. The film is a follow-up of Priyadarshan's 2003 slapstick hit, "Hungama".
