New Delhi, May 2 IANS | 4 months ago

She is as svelte and stunning a mother of a two-year-old as she was when she danced to the tunes of "Chura ke dil mera". Shilpa Shetty, who was given the title of 'Spalicious Mom' at an awards event here, says she takes the awards as "compliments".


Breaking into a laughter on being congratulated for being a 'Spalicious Mom', Shilpa told IANS: "What does it mean? I have no inkling of what it means. I don't understand it really, but an award is always a compliment and so, I am happy and excited about this."

Shilpa, who co-owns spa and wellness chain IOSIS along with business partner and cosmetologist Kiran Bawa, also couldn't contain her excitement that two IOSIS outlets won an award each at the recently held seventh GeoSpa asiaSpa India awards 2013 here.

IOSIS, Shilpa said, has eight outlets so far, and nine more are in the pipeline.

Married to businessman Raj Kundra, the actress' business acumen seems to be getting stronger by the day. She says the franchise model has worked in favour of IOSIS, and that it has helped them to explore places like Benares, Lucknow, Ghaziabad and Pune, apart from some of the metros.
