Bollywood stars might have snubbed actress Shilpa Shetty's recent birthday party in the UK on June 8th and Bipasha Basu might feel that she would rather win international accolades for her films than for reality shows, but dusky beauty Shilpa Shetty is unfazed by such things.
After all, from a sagging career in Bollywood, the Southern belle is now geared up to set the western world ablaze, with the launch of a new perfume, a brand new musical and even a new restaurant in London in the process giving her very little scope to do any more Bollywood movies.
"I am so pressed for time right now, that I just cannot do any Hindi films. I have got a couple of offers, but once I do a film, I'll put in my hundred percent in it. However I am so busy with the launch of my new perfume in the UK and other things, that it will not be possible for me to devote any time to Bollywood as of now," Shilpa was recently quoted as saying.
But that didn't deter Shilpa who features regularly in front pages of UK tabloids, from performing at the iifa awards awards in Yorkshire and promoting her new film Apne which stars Sunny and Bobby Deol with their father Dharmendra.
"Besides my perfume launch, I am here to finalise the details for my musical, which is called Bollywood to Broadway, and which will go on the road in November. I am also starting my own restaurant here in the UK in Central London, which will serve authentic Indian food. So I guess I have got a great deal on my plate as of now," she said.
With her plate so full and the sky being the limit, Bollywood jealousy competition and glamour are trivial issues for her now. Now that's behaving like a true blue international celeb!! So we soon expect to shift residence to London, id these are signs to go by.
