A source close to the actress says Shilpa was stunned by the gift even though her beau always lavishes her with thoughtful presents. Soon after Shilpa got the keys, she began shopping for home accessories and designing the apartment. She also supervised the designing and decoration of the seven-bedroom Weybridge mansion that Kundra bought three years ago in Surrey."
But though Shilpa loves her 1600-square feet Weybridge home (their main home), the Kensington apartment is very convenient. The mansion is 40 minutes away from London and overlooks the exclusive St George's Hill. Says the source, "Shilpa is thrilled because she keeps visiting London often and the Kensington apartment is very convenient for her. Shilpa is keeping the Kensing-ton place simple and basic.
Shilpa says, "I was in shock when Raj gave me such a beautiful birthday gift. The way he arranged my birthday party was overwhelming too. Raj went out of his way to make it so special for me. He took all the names of my friends in London from my phonebook and invited them for the party. For a man to put together such a party takes time and effort. His gesture was special and thoughtful."
