Actor Shilpa Shetty is mostly in the news for her personal rather than professional life. Last week, it was her son Viaan Raj Kundra who was in the headlines for his interaction with WWE champion John Cena. While Shilpa and her husband both came forward to laud their son, the Bollywood starlet has always stated family is her top priority and she would never let work come in the way. Well, this is highly believable as we don’t remember the last time we saw the B-town beauty on the big screen. The only time we got a dose of the starlet in recent times was on the reality TV show Big Brother.
For all Shilpa fans, the actor is supposedly all set to make a comeback to films after a gap of 12 whopping years. She was last seen in the Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby Deol-starrer Apne in 2007. According to sources, she has signed filmmaker Aziz Mirza’s son Haroon’s directorial debut film, which is being produced by Ramesh Taurani. Diljit Dosanjh and Yami Gautam have already been roped in the untitled comedy, revealed a source. Shilpa will allegedly be seen portraying a writer.
“Shilpa plays a writer in the film. After a month-long holiday in London and Greece, she returns to Mumbai in the first week of August and will immediately start shooting for the film. She is really excited for the film,” stated an insider. Producer Ramesh revealed that the film is one of the last scripts written by Hera Pheri and Bhool Bhulaiya screenplay writer Neeraj Vora, who passed away in 2017. While Shilpa may have not done films for a long time, her fitness routine and style statements have long been in the spotlight and so she still holds prominence in the Indian film industry. Fingers crossed, let’s wait for an official announcement about Shilpa’s comeback film!
