''I think it's part and parcel of being a celebrity. People sometimes are bound to write rubbish. I have learnt to take it in my stride but that was very distasteful,'' she said.
On being told that people say there is no smoke without fire, Shilpa Shetty said, "Why would there be a problem? You are mad or what? I love my husband. He is my soulmate, touchwood! I think because I kept quiet, it was blown out of proportion.''
Shilpa Shetty added, ''I am not one of those who really believes that I need to clarify anything to anyone. Unless it is something that I just feel is uncalled for. I always believe 'agar maine isse zyaada importance diya toh aur bada ho jayega'. That's the reason I kept quiet and I suddenly saw it snowballing. I even called my PR, who is a very old friend of mine, and I said what the hell is happening, you will have to stop this now, it's really irritating me."
When asked how she handles such negative rumours, Shilpa Shetty said, "I switch off it's not possible to survive,otherwise.''
