Throughout the years, there have been a number of actresses and performers who have dazzled us with their outstanding performances. Shilpa Shetty, one of Bollywood’s most prominent actresses and a fitness icon, is an example of this. While we’ve all heard a lot about actress Shilpa Shetty. Is that correct?
Now is the moment to reconsider. Because, with today’s piece, we’ve uncovered some fascinating facts and points that many people are unaware of.
Let’s have a look:
While we already know some fundamental facts about the actress, such as her being Shamita Shetty’s older sister and a prominent Indian model, there is still more to learn about her. One interesting detail about the actress is that she was named Diva of the Year by Sahara One in 2004.
Shilpa Shetty is alleged to have launched a lawsuit against the stardust magazine for publishing information regarding her on-again, off-again romance with Akshay Kumar, one of Bollywood’s most prominent stars. The actress lost some film projects as a result of the report, so she sued Stardust magazine and won the case. Shilpa was the captain of her school’s baseball team in addition to being a fitness superstar and a superb actress.
Shilpa was then subjected to racism and bullying in the house as a result of this. As a result, the show’s transmission channel received more than 40 thousand complaints about these behaviours in the house.
This became one of the most contentious issues between India and the United Kingdom, prompting Prime Minister Tony Blair to denounce the situation during his visit to India.
Despite being a part of such a major controversy on the show, Shilpa persevered and won the show’s fifth series in 2007.
Shilpa is also an AIDS activist and a member of PETA, and she donated her proceeds from the film “Phir Milenge” to an AIDS organisation.
Did you know that Shilpa Shetty used to go by the name Ashwini Shetty before she became famous? Not only that, but her younger sister, Shamita Shetty, changed her name from Sabita Shetty to Shamita Shetty before entering the glamorous world.
Prior to marrying Raj Kundra, the actress was engaged to music director Sandeep Chowta.
She has also been a part of a number of cancelled projects, including Lal Batti (2002), in which she was cast as a prostitute, Ek Pal Ke Liye (2001), which would have been singer Kamal Khan’s debut film, Rudra (1994), and Suraj Pe Dastak (2004), in which she co-starred with Akshay Kumar and Madhuri Dixit.
Another actress who married an already married man was Shilpa Shetty.
The actress appears to have received her beauty from her mother, a well-known model in the early 1970s.
Apart from the previously mentioned cancelled projects, one unique project that was shelved was the Hollywood film Hanuman (2006). The film was planned to be shot in several international countries, including Morocco and Canada, but it was shelved for undisclosed reasons. Shilpa Shetty portrayed Sita, Keanu Reeves portrayed Ram, and Aseem Merchant portrayed Laxman in the film.
