“I was doing my bachelor"s degree in sociology when I got my first major role in the Pakistani film Khamosh Pani which went on to win many international awards. This film was running in cinema houses directly opposite Veer Zaara which was indeed a big kick for me", a triumphant Shilpa says.
“I feel my fan base has multiplied with my appearance in Jhalak Dikhla Ja"s 3rd season. Right now I am looking forward to UTV Spotboy"s film SEASON"s GREETINGS, directed by Vikram Chopra and a White Popcorn Films"untitled venture, produced by Aman Miglani from Delhi. There are a few more interesting projects as well which I shall disclose when things materialize." Shilpa adds before signing off.
