Shilpa Shukla almost went unnoticed in Khamosh Pani and
Hazaron Khwaishein Aisi. After a few plays, a cameo role
in Frozen, directed by Shivaji Chandrabushan, and a trip
to the US , Chak De India happened, and as she says, it
changed her life.
She has since been receiving calls from people from all walks of
life and management schools. However, the character of Bindya Naik
also left her trapped in an image. The actress was flooded with
offers of negative roles, which only disappointed her. Finally, she
signed Atul Sabharwal's Junction, with Abhay Deol, Vidya
Malpade and Ranvir Shourey as co-stars.
In the future, Shilpa wishes to do comedy as "it tests the
actor". However, glamour and glitz put her off. What she is sure of
is that she doesn't want to do roles which would require her to
change costumes and prance around. The "Chak De" girl is looking
for roles that "leave an impact". Way to go, Shilpa.
