Says a source close to the actress, “Shilpa is currently busy with her home shopping television business, working on her fashion line and completing her health and fitness book.

The concept of the show was to travel across the world to different countries and cover the various local fashion influences and how they manage to keep their culture alive through their clothes. The show also included Shilpa sporting the traditional outfits of each country and travelling with a fashion designer/ influencer of a particular country to study trends in detail.”

The source adds that Shilpa turned down the offer as the commitment would have required her to travel back to back to locations like France, Tokyo, Mexico, Spain and Turkey on a continuous schedule, which would mean being away from her family and her businesses in India for long periods of time. “Given that Shilpa has always maintained that she wants to strike a work and family life balance, the arrangement of the show didn’t suit her schedule and hence she turned it down, despite being offered a whopping amount.”
