Instead of moving out in the hot and humid weather for shopping and inviting unwanted attention from her fans, actress-enterprenuer Shilpa Shetty likes to buy products online as she says e-commerce gives her a convenient and reliable shopping experience.

“I shop for everything online - from house stuff, shoes, cushions, to Diwali diyas,” Shilpa said.

“Who has the time to go and buy these products outside? How can I go and buy? Firstly, I hate shopping in India because of this ‘selfie’ culture as it kills my shopping experience. People forget that we are also human beings. To make matters worse I’m a shopaholic. Now things have become far more professional and today you can get products even on Sunday. The online shopping experience is mind-blowing,” she added.

The actress spoke while in New Delhi with her husband Raj Kundra to announce their home shopping channel Best Deal TV’s tie up with e-commerce portal Amazon.in.

“I love shopping. To be able to access a product or anything that you need and have it delivered at your doorstep is something that is unparallelled. I don’t have to waste petrol or get wet in the rain to buy a product. Here on the internet, I have an array of products to choose from. With shopping online or on TV, you have an added advantage and comfort,” Shilpa said at the launch.

The tie up will reportedly provide customers a variety of celebrity backed fashion and lifestyle products in a fast, easy, convenient and reliable way at affordable prices.
