Shilpa Shetty, the Indian actress who was appreciated a lot for her role in the movie Life in a Metro (starring Sharman Joshi, Shiney Ahuja, Shilpa Shetty, Konkona Sen Sharma, Kay Kay Menon etc) directed by Anurag Basu, faced excessive criticism few days back. The actress who does not seem to have future in Bollywood now is trying different other means to earn fame and that that too in abroad lands.

After her success in the reality tv show Big Brother of UK, Shilpa Shetty is actually making an effort to trade on her celebrity status in the foreign land, UK. Recently the actress got her picture on the menu of the Bombay Bicycle Club in London. The reviews about the same were enough to prove that Shilpa drew a lot of flak from this publicity stunt.

One of the critics of the London Times, Giles Coren was so dismayed with the design and food of the club that he wrote about Shilpa’s image as an over made up, poodle haired trollop in some Bollywood publicity shot. About the food, he just wrote that he does not want to talk about it.

I think, this episode must be enough for our Shilpa Shetty to understand that if she has got some career, it is here in our own land India and not abroad. After all not everybody can be as lucky as Mallika Sherawat who is getting a lot of Hollywood offers these days!

January 21, 2010 Leave a comment

shilpaA leading newspaper studying the various ‘assets’ of celebrities came to the conclusion that for actress Shilpa Shetty her biggest asset is her lean body, especially her waist. What can a 24-inch waist get a girl, they ask? Well, a lot – films like Baazigar and Life In A… Metro, item numbers like Dostana and Om Shanti Om, booty like Big Brother and Raj Kundra and a smooch from Richard Gere. Whether looting UP and Bihar or urging you to shut up and bounce, the belly did the lady a lot of good. Imagine if Shilpa Shetty lost her waist? Would she still be as popular? Guess only the fans have the answer to this.

‘New me has emerged’

November 18, 2009 1 comment

Actress Shilpa Shetty who had earned fame in bollywood, but her Big Brother win gave her a new avatar. She is being known as more of a business woman these days than actress, she was in news for investing in football association as well, and now she is getting married to Raj Kundra on November 22. As such she had no set goals in her life, but she always say, “After Big Brother I strongly believe that a new me has emerged.”
shilpa and raj
Talking about her life and herself, she said, “There have been career highs and career lows, but I’ve enjoyed the learning curve. Even though I was written off, I never once did give up! It’s a trait about me. I still haven’t given up on the thought of making a film. I know I had announced my plans of making a movie a long time ago. But the pre-production then was haphazard. As a producer I can rectify things, and I thought it was more sensible to be poorer by a few lakhs then than a few crores after the film was made. So I shelved what I had begun, and started all over again. Also there was the recession. So it has taken a while, but a film shall be made.”

She’s is fully occupied with her in hand projects, and her dream projects, but at the moment she is up for her marriage.
