If it’s one actress we miss and would love to see on our screens again, it is Shilpa Shetty. Although we have a whole list of beauties who we wouldn’t mind gracing our screens, Shetty’s charm and alluring nature is something we all miss incredibly. And if you do too, then we have a piece of great news for you! The Pardesi Babu actress is all geared up to make a kickass comeback on the big screen, after the longest period of 13 years! Whoa.
While Shetty has been steering clear of films for quite a long time, she still made appearances on TV to make up for it. We’ve seen her be the judge of the dance show Nach Baliye and Super Dancer, but there is no denying that we missed seeing her work her magic in films. And as for her new role, she will be playing a pivotal role in Sabbir Khan’s upcoming romantic comedy action film Nikamma, while sharing screen space with Abhimanyu Dassani and Shirley Setia.
The actress made the announcement on her Instagram rather excitedly, and we’re living for it!
The actress also engaged in a conversation with Times of India about her return to the big screen and the end of a long sabbatical and was clearly overjoyed at the prospect.
“It feels great. I am ready to take the plunge again. It’s a refreshing and unique project, and I am looking forward to working with Sabbir. I loved my role as it’s something that I have never attempted before. I can’t wait for the audience to see me in a new avatar.”
In fact, it is not just Shetty who is incredibly excited to be getting back to films. The director of the film, Sabbir Khan, also expressed his delight to have Shetty on board with the team.
“Shilpa was very clear that her comeback would have to be with a worthy role. It’s a dynamic part and I am happy to have her on board and bring her back for her fans who have missed her.”
