Actress Shilpa Shetty says that she has started reading scripts to feature in films, but wouldn’t term as it as a “comeback” like how people generally term it. “Everyday I end up coming on the screen for some reason, at least on the small screen. I wasn’t even considering it (films) but now (son) Viaan will soon turn three-and-a-half years. He’s spending more time at school, so I’ve started to read scripts. And the 2-3 scripts that I read were not up to the mark. “It really has to be a riveting film for me to do, something that I haven’t done before. And I’m not going to make a comeback or something similar, like how people term it. I just want to do something that would interest me as an actor,” said Shilpa to queries if she would be seen in films again.
Asked about the genre with which she would like to make a comeback, she said that the script hasn’t come till now, so she couldn’t say anything.
Shilpa was present along with her husband Raj Kundra to promote Saffola Life’s initiative ‘Walk together to #protectherheart’ on Tuesday and stressed the benefits of walking 30 minutes with one’s husband for the health of the heart and bonding.
“I’ve always believed that health is wealth. And if ever there is an opportunity where I can play a catalyst in telling people the same and making a difference to their lives, I would most happily do so. I’m very happy that today Saffola Life has taken this initiative and it’s a great endeavour to protect women’s hearts,” she said.
Shilpa was last seen in an item number for her own production, “Dishkiyaoon” which starred Harman Baweja. Her last substantial performance was in “Apne” in 2007 and it’s been more of special appearances post that.
Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is making her comeback with “Jazbaa” while other actresses Karisma Kapoor, Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit have all made their “comebacks” in the last few years.
