Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty flew to Mangalore in Karnataka, India on November 24, 2013 to inaugurate the first PC Jewellers showroom in the state. The venue was over-crowded as people came out to see the big star. She was there for only thirty minutes and even the second in the chain of command of PC Jewellers did not get to interact with her.

This is the 39th national store of the brand, and Shilpa congratulated them, also saying that she loved their creations. She also said that she would like to visit Mangalore, her birth place, more often but that her schedule did not allow her to do so. She revealed that she had been wanting to visit the Kateel temple for a long time after the birth of her son Viaan last year, and that she believed this endorsement deal with PC Jewellers was fated since she was finally getting the opportunity to do that.

She said she would be visiting the Kateel Durga Parameshwari Temple near Mangalore before flying back to Mumbai that same day. Her visit there was just as crowded as the promotional event in the city.
She was definitely dressed for the long day, and her attire seemed to be more inspired by her trip to the temple. Indeed, she did express that she was more excited about the latter since she was a very religious person and believed in the deity of the temple.
