Who knew the Chura Ke Dil Mera girl had her dil set on art? Shilpa Shetty, who was recently in Delhi for a friend’s art exhibition said, “I love art. And I love collecting art. I have a couple of MF Husain pieces, Anjolie Ela Menon and S H Raza.
And the thing is my husband hates art. He asks me what I want for my birthday and I’m like, art, and he’s all, ‘Whaaaat?!!’ But since buying art is quite expensive, I even have an art budget!”
Art should make you happy: “I love art because it has an individual interpretation, as in, different people have different perceptions about the same piece of art, all of which are completely right in their own way. When I buy art, I buy it thinking that it should make me happy. I mean, if I’m going to put it up on the wall, I should be happy to see it every day. But I don’t understand recycled art. I don’t get it. I know people who love art created by using recycled goods, but I’ve never been able to wrap my head around the whole concept of recycled art.”
