Shilpa Shetty made everyone sit up and take notice of her right from her debut in Baazigar alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. And today, as the actress marks her 26th year in Bollywood, Shilpa makes a shocking revelation.
Shilpa Shetty, who has films like Dhadkan, Phir Milenge and Life In A Metro among others to her credit said she never wanted to act in films in the first place. Speaking to Hindustan Times, Shilpa has said that her entry in Bollywood was “purely due to luck.” Further elaborating on the same, Shilpa said, “It has been a wonderful journey. I am grateful for all the love that has come from the viewers. They have been kind and I have been fortunate. I was an outsider with no plan to be in films. A big thanks to the people of the industry who made me feel at home.”
For those living under the rock, Shilpa was all but 15 when a photographer spotted her at a party and circulated her pictures on the sets on a particular show which eventually led to Shilpa being flooded with film offers from various directors and producers.
On the professional front, Shilpa will be making a comeback to the silver screen after a haitus of 13 long years with Sabbir Khan’s Nikamma. Speaking about the project, Shilpa said, “It is so exciting to be on a film set and to witness everyone work single-mindedly towards a project. I have missed the filmmaking process and being in front of the camera for a movie. I am buzzing with the energy of a newcomer!”
