Shilpa Shetty may look like a million bucks at 44, but she seems to have accepted her age gracefully and has moved on to character-heavy 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), Shetty is back on screen in Priyadarshan’s Hungama 2.
Interestingly, she is paired opposite Bollywood legend Paresh Rawal.
Confirming the news, Priyadarshan told us exclusively, “Shilpa Shetty Kundra confirmed this week that she’s doing my film. She’s playing a pivotal role opposite Paresh Rawal. 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 time passes there is always a chance to come together with people whom one has missed out working with.”
