Actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra, who made her debut alongside Shah Rukh Khan in “Baazigar” in 1993, has garnered acclaim not only for her acting but also her dancing prowess. As she marks her 30th year in the Hindi film industry, she took a moment to reminisce in a recent interview.

Shilpa Acknowledges Being Overlooked

Speaking with ETimes, Shilpa discussed the intriguing turns of life’s narrative. She recalled never being counted among the top ten actors of her era, attributing it to a perceived lack of opportunities at the time. However, times have changed, and Shilpa now embraces her flourishing career, including significant series and films. She also acknowledged that each individual’s journey is unique and celebrated her successful foray into television and her thriving brand ventures.

She expressed, “I feel there is poetic justice in life, always. I was never in the top 10 actors (list). I may have received a lot of love and adulation but never counted in the top 10 actors – maybe lack of opportunity, or what, I don’t know. Today, look at me! I am doing the biggest series, I have just finished filming a movie, I am doing a multilingual film, and I have nothing to complain about today. We all have our journey, I have carved a niche on TV, my brands are doing well.”

Shilpa’s Stance on Rumored Movie About Husband

There have been speculations about a film being made about Shilpa’s husband, Raj Kundra, and his time in jail. Reports suggest that Kundra will not only produce but also star in it. When asked about this, Shilpa replied, “It’s not my place to say anything.”

Additionally, during the conversation, the actress shared insights into her daily routine. Managing a busy schedule with her school-going kids, she described her days as hectic, leaving her feeling anything but excited due to the overwhelming workload.
