Shilpa Shetty is in talks to return to acting with Hungama 2.

Ahead of the release of Hungama 2, Shilpa Shetty talks about returning to acting and staying relevant among the current audience.

Hungama 2, releasing on July 23, will mark Shilpa Shetty’s return to acting after 14 years. His last film release was Anurag Basu’s Life in a…Metro. She will also soon be seen in the film Nikamma, which she signed before Hungama 2. “Actually I had said ‘yes’ to the useless earlier. Sabbir Khan offered me a very good part. Then Ratanji (Jain, producer) came to me with Hungama 2. Now because he introduced me to films, I couldn’t say ‘no’ to him. I have signed two films together,” Shilpa told Firstpost in an interview.

He has also recreated his iconic Main Khiladi Tu Anari number ‘Chura Ke Dil Mera’ with Meezaan Jaffrey. He said, “Ratanji cleverly (laughs) assured me that we are shooting for ‘Chura Ke’ again. I told him, ‘You can’t shoot ‘Chura Ke Dil Mera’ with anyone else. Can. Only me should do this song (laughs). Priyadarshan sir (Priyadarshan) is directing after almost six years, so it was kind of a comeback for both of us. I have always worked with him in the 90s. I wanted to do it but it never happened.”

Shilpa has no regrets that after marriage she took a break from films. “The first seven years of my marriage, I had decided that I would not do films. Then I got engaged in television, which is also a very powerful medium,” she said.

“Then I did yoga with a vengeance and built my app. I was always busy. It’s not that I didn’t have work and I was thinking that I have to do a film. I found interesting parts but not interesting enough that I could get out of my house. I made a change and ventured into health and fitness because that’s my passion. I think you stay relevant if you believe in what you are doing whether it is movies or any other business. You have to do something consistently and stick to the point and it worked because I am still in the public eye. Television and then social media opened another playing field for me. I enjoy it. Many actresses of my generation are not so consistent. For social media, you have to move on because you are catering to the second generation. it is hard. But I have managed to carve out a special niche for myself.”
