In a recent interview, Shilpa Shetty discussed her frustration at not being given the actor’s tag in Bollywood.
Shilpa Shetty, one of the most successful moms in Bollywood, is presently preoccupied with the marketing of her new movie “Sukhee.” The actress is well-known for her toned physique and rigorous training regimen among admirers on social media, and she never misses an occasion to turn heads with her public appearances. Moving on to the latest developments, Shilpa recently shared her experiences on a podcast programme about how she was never given the actor’s tag in Bollywood and how none of the larger studios offered her any roles.
Shilpa has more than 30 million Instagram followers, which is a significant amount of fans. The actress, who is wed to billionaire Raj Kundra, frequently provides a look into her opulent lifestyle on the platform while also showcasing her adorable children, Viaan and Samisha.
In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Shilpa Shetty spoke about never getting an actor’s tag in the industry and 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.”
Talking about surviving a career on songs, the Sukhee actress said, “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.”
Kusha Kapila and Amit Sadh have significant parts in Shilpa Shetty’s next movie “Sukhee,” which debuts on September 22nd, 2023.
