Shilpa Shetty Kundra and her cat Queenie have a story that will make you believe in the saying, “made for each other’. As if planned by the universe, the kitten walked into her office on a windy, raining night last year. The cat was wet, cold and shivering and Shilpa instantly took her in and brought her to a warmer place! That instant, Shilpa knew a new member has joined the Shetty-Kundra family.
