There are some actors who starred in films one after another when they stepped foot in Bollywood but were missing in action soon after. While their fans yearn to watch them on the silver screen once again, they decided to stay away from signing any film projects for a long time. A-lister and fashionista Shilpa Shetty Kundra is one of them. The star has been away from the big screen for a whopping 13 years now and her acting comeback is the only thing that is the talk of the town now. She last starred in the 2007 film Apne and only recently made her way back to the world of Indian cinema again. Woot woot!
It was earlier revealed that Shilpa will be back with a bang in the upcoming project Nikamma. However, the rest of the details were kept under tight wraps. In a rather interesting development, the male lead has now been roped in for the film. Any guesses? Shilpa will be sharing screen space with actor Samir Soni who will reportedly essay Shilpa’s spouse in the Sabir Khan-helmed film.
The Student of the Year 2 star was full of praises for Shilpa. “I’ve met Shilpa on several occasions, including Ganpati at her place. She is the sweetest person I know. When I was in Bigg Boss 4, she rooted for me. She’s a good friend of my wife Neelam and both of us are fond of her. She is returning to films after 13 years and I have an important role in the project. I can’t divulge much, but I’m happy it is not a run-of-the-mill part,” said Samir. The actor is currently shooting for Mumbai Saga and will begin Nikamma in the first week of October. “I look forward to working with Shilpa. She’s such a lively, bubbly person, it will be fun,” he concluded.
