People have been witnessing the changing factors like losing or gaining weight, learning swimming to salsa and the range even includes horse riding and gun firing with their favourite stars. This time, hot Bollywood diva Shilpa Shetty is back with her new passion - violin.
You must be thinking about the necessity of learning to play with strings and that too at this age. But with Bollywood and its stars, no age is late for learning as far as the subject is related to their new roles in films. The same thing has happened to Shilpa. Her role in Sunny Deol's The Man demands her to be well versed with the art of playing the violin. And that's the reason the actress has put aside her indomitable will to pose for yoga for a few days.
A source close to the actress reveals, "Shilpa's character in The Man is of an actress. She is playing herself in the film. But her character also has an interesting side to her. She is a violin expert just like pop sensation Vanessa Mae. Her violin playing portions in the film have been styled like a Vanessa Mae video. The film shows her as famous public figure with massive fan following. Shilpa wanted to lend authenticity to her character and decided to learn to play the violin."
No doubt that Shilpa baby must have been putting her soul in learning at least to stand properly with the violin! "Shilpa has been very sincere student, leaving her violin teacher impressed. Sunny Deol, too, was impressed with Shilpa's professionalism and hard work when he came to know that she was actually taking lessons to play the violin just to be in sync with her character," further adds the source.
Guess how the diva must be spending time with the violin. The source describes that Shilpa has appointed Sandeep, a violin instructor from Goa, to teach her the nitty-gritty of the art of playing the violin.
"Every evening after pack up, Shilpa takes two hour lessons on playing the violin. She is shaping up to be a very dedicated student," describes the happy guru Sandeep.
And what the babe herself thinks about her new classes? "I have to play the violin in The Man. And to make it look real, I'm taking actual lessons. Trust me, it's a very difficult to play the violin. I'm having a tough time. My instructor tells me that it's the most difficult instrument to play and he's quite right," winks off Shilpa.
It"s the love for things that makes it easy to get the things, whatever tough they may appear at the beginning. Seeing Shilpa in love with the violin we can assume her upcoming avatar as the music diva Shilpa who has once been a popular actor in Bollywood. Well, it's too far fetched, but what's wrong in guessing provided we have time to guess!
