Renowned Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty is returning to films after a break of more than 12 years.
The beautiful actress was last seen in Apnay alongside Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol, Katrina Kaif and Kirron Kher. Now, the rumor has it that she will be seen on the big screen very soon.
Shilpa Shetty is Back
A leading Indian daily has reported that Shilpa has signed on for Ramesh Taurani’s upcoming project.
If the rumor holds some substance, she will be sharing the screen with Diljit Dosanjh and Yami Gautam. The project is at the initial stage, and its cast and the title are still being finalized.
“Shilpa Shetty Kundra has been signed as the lead in Ramesh Taurani’s untitled next. The film will also star Diljit Dosanjh and Yami Gautam.”
“While Shilpa has been busy with her other professional commitments for a while now, it took a special project like this for her to return to the silver screen,” the daily reported, quoting a source.
A Much Anticipated Return
Without giving an actual number, the newspaper reported that the 44-year-old has been offered a massive sum of money for her full-fledged role in the movie.
The source told the newspaper that the makers of the film were “extremely keen on having Shilpa on board and offered her a whopping amount for her role in the film.”
The Dharkan actress made her Bollywood debut in 1993 film Baazigar opposite Shah Rukh Khan. She took a break from acting in 2007.
However, the actress made cameo appearances in the song Shut Up and Bounce in the film Dostana (2008), and her own production Dishkiyaoon in 2014.
