Shilpa Shetty may look like a million bucks at 44. But she seems to have accepted her age gracefully and moved on to character roles.
In what would in all likelihood be her first full-fledged screen appearance since Apne in 2007(she made special appearances in Karan Johar’s Dostana and her own production Dishkiyaoon in 2014) Ms Shetty is back on screen in Priyadarshan’s Hungama 2.
Interestingly she is paired opposite one of our finest character actor Paresh Rawal
Confirming the same Priyadarshan spoke exclusively to ths writer, “Shilpa Shetty Kundraconfirmed this week that she’s doing my film. She’s playing a pivotal role opposite PareshRawal. She will be cast as one of the plot-driving characters who creates misunderstandings in the plot.”
Priyan expresses surprise at not having worked with Shilpa before. “We were part of the same(Bollywood) fraternity. But we never got a chance to work together until now.It’s a small world. No matter how much times passes there is always a chance to come together with people whom one has missed out working with.”
Priyan also looks forward to working with Amitabh Bachchan soon.
