Shilpa Shetty Kundra is known for her dedication, discipline and professionalism. While the actress turned entrepreneur with her fitness app, she also recently entered the hospitality industry. Adding another feather to her cap, the actress now joins hands for a thoughtful venture with Hunar—a learning platform.

Shilpa turns partner and investor to Hunar Online Courses, a skilling platform with a community of over 2 million women. With this partnership, the actress comes to realize her vision of financial independence for one lakh women by the coming year through better skilling and entrepreneurship opportunities for them.

On her collaboration with Hunar, Shilpa said, “Empowering the women of India with skills to become financially independent has always been a dream for me. As an independent woman, I believe that financial independence and having a personal source of income are important for the woman, her family and the country. When I attended the Hunar Fashion Show as a chief guest, I saw first-hand the impact that Hunar’s team was creating, and I wanted to join them as an investor and a brand ambassador.”

Nishtha Yogesh, founder and CEO of Hunar Online Courses, said, “India has the potential to grow its GDP exponentially when India’s women are provided with the right platform to learn, grow and earn an income. Women want to be financially independent and to be recognized for their skills, but do not have easy access to opportunities to learn or earn. Through its wide array of courses in Fashion, Food, Beauty and Photography, Hunar aims to enable and empower these women by lending them the required support at every stage of their journey through expert faculty, dedicated student guides, entrepreneurship mentors and access to a vast community of like-minded women.”

Shilpa also shared a video on Instagram, announcing her empowering association with Hunar. She captioned the video, “Super excited to share that I am not only the Brand Ambassador, but also an investor on Hunar Online Courses—an amazing platform that takes Indian women from skill to success. This supportive space with a community of 2 million-plus women helps them learn fashion, food and beauty skills, make their own creations and even start a business! So, do visit to join me on this inspiring journey. Hunar Tumhara, Saath Hamara.”

A star across mediums— movies, television (as reality show judge), radio show host and OTT, and a businesswoman to boot, Shilpa has been impeccably playing her roles as a model, actress, film producer, author and entrepreneur. On the work front, Shilpa is gearing up for the release of Sonal Joshi’s Sukhee, wherein she plays the lead protagonist, and Rohit Shetty’s web series, Indian Police Force.
