Shilpa Shetty has shelved her first production, an action film to be directed by Manish Jha. And it looks like her second film - a love story to be directed by Nagesh Kukunoor - will also meet the same fate. Both these films were being produced by Shilpa's banner S2 Global Productions.
The actress decided that her project with Manish wasn't working out in the recession-ridden market. It was proving to be too expensive to make good business sense. After that film got shelved, the actress began concentrating on the smaller film.
For the last few months, along with Nagesh, Shilpa has been looking for a new boy for the film. Both of them are frustrated because they haven't been able to find the lad. Mrs Kundra has now decided that if she doesn't get the right pair for the film, she won't produce it."
A source close to the actress adds, "Shilpa has been leading a very hectic lifestyle of late. First, it was the IPL. After that, she has been travelling a lot with Raj for their business commitments. Now she wants to take a break and spend more time with Raj and their families. She isn't worried about the films being in limbo. Her next release with Sunny Deol, The Man, is still not complete and she is now keen to finish that and then focus on spending time with her husband."
Shilpa admits, "Yes, Manish's film has been shelved. As far as Nagesh's film is concerned, we are still looking at finding the casting."
