Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty is making headlines after the release of the trailer of her upcoming movie Nikamma. During the trailer launch, Shilpa walked down memory lane and recalled her three-decade-long journey in the film industry. She also thanked Baazigar co-star Shah Rukh Khan for giving her tips on how to survive in Bollywood.
Remembering her first day on Baazigar sets, Shilpa Shetty said, “I didn’t know Hindi then, my grammar is still not that good but I do work hard. I have learnt Urdu. I talk a lot in Hindi. My first shot was in a park with Shah Rukh Khan, before the song ‘Kitabe Bahut Si’. At that time, I would quickly say my lines and finish it off and not face the camera. So Shah Rukh would say ‘look at the camera, the camera is your audience and say the lines’.”
The actress further went on to call her journey in showbiz a ‘roller-coaster ride’ full of highs and lows. “I live in the moment and that has been my attitude always, it has been positive,” she further added. Shilpa admitted that at the time she began acting, she didn’t even know how to talk in Hindi. She feels the reason why she has lasted so long is that she loved her work very much. The Dhadkan actress also took the opportunity and thanked her fans and filmmakers for always supporting her.
For the information, Shilpa’s forthcoming movie Nikamma also stars Abhimanyu D and Shirley Setia in pivotal roles.
