Mumbai: Actress-entrepreneur Shilpa Shetty-Kundra confesses she cannot swim.
Shilpa on Friday took to Instagram to share a video that shows her taking swimming lessons.
"Today was an incredible feeling. An honest confession: 'I can't swim'. I have tried so many times to learn, trust me, but in vain. So I'm not a water-baby. But today I felt like a child in a mother's womb. (I) Had to share this with you. The smile on my face is proof of the bliss I felt to just be able to float," she captioned the image.
The 44-year-old actress said that it is important for one to let go of one's fears.
"To let go of our fears and trust is what we find hardest," she added.
