Shilpa Shetty is one of the most celebrated actresses of our Bollywood industry. The actress is known for her fitness routine, healthy recipes, Sunday binge videos on Instagram and of course her superhit career in the film industry.
Shilpa Shetty is currently busy promoting Sukhee, her upcoming film and judging the Talent hunt show, India’s Got Talent.
Recently in an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Shilpa Shetty made some shocking revelations about the industry and how she felt about being treated a certain way. She always felt that she never got a tag of being a bollywood actress.
She also believes that people know her for being glamorous and for her songs but she has never been on big film banners like other actresses.
She said “I never got the tag of an actor. I always got relegated or rather typecast into being just a glamorous actor, which is also a great niche to have because today I can proudly say that I can do this (pointing towards the poster of her upcoming film Sukhee), but can you become glamorous? Being glamorous is aspirational and it’s ok as long as you can carve your niche. I can say proudly that I picked from whatever was offered to me and I survived.”
She further adds “I have had a long career with so many lows that I used to wonder, ‘Why didn’t I get offered this role or why was I never offered a film with big banners?’ Whatever I have achieved is by working in small films with big actors. I did small characters and no matter whether my films worked or not, all my songs were hits. I am surviving because of my songs.”
Talking about her film, Sukhee is all set to be released on 22 September 2023 and is directed by Sonal Joshi.
