Fans are super pleased to hear the news that Shilpa Shetty, who has stayed away from the big screen for almost 13 years, will soon be making her comeback! That's right; Shilpa will be seen in Sabbir Khan's next directorial titled, 'Nikamma'. The actress recently spoke about how she is prepping for the film, and why she feels it is the right time to make a comeback. Read on!
In an interview with IANS, Shilpa said, "I will start shooting for the film soon. I am reading up for the film, and preparing in other ways, so it's all new for me. I am enjoying the process. I think this is the right time since it is all about content now. I really liked the script of the film."

Everyone knows that Shilpa is a yoga and fitness freak. Regarding this, she said, "Yoga and fitness have become a part of my life. I don't need to make an effort to do it. I think these things are important for self-preservation. I prescribe and subscribe to yoga because it's a holistic way of improving your mental and physical health."
