Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, who turns 43 this Friday, is an inspiration for ageing women, who lose hope on maintaining their fitness post youth.

She leads a spree of hot, gorgeous, stylish and well maintained 40-plus celebs in the country who are great examples for everyone. Here’s a tribute to these ladies proving it’s never to late to get in shape.

Shilpa Shetty: Bollywood’s fittest mommy, the Baazigar actress is the biggest fan of yoga and believes that it is the most natural way to stay fit. She has also released a DVD on yoga titled ‘Shilpa’s Yoga’.

 

 

Mandira Bedi: She is an actress, TV presenter, model, fashion designer, cricket enthusiast and and to top it all, a fitness freak. At 46, Mandira has the dream body that any woman would die to have. Whether it’s a bikini or a saree, this beauty knows how to look fabulous in almost anything.

 

 

 

 

Malaika Arora: Only Malaika can make 44 look sexy. The mother of one can give the younger lot a run for their money with her excruciating fitness regime (follow her on Instagram and you’d know). Apart from following a strict diet, Malaika indulges in aerial yoga, pilates and gymming.
