On wanting to be back to the hustle and bustle of the film sets Shilpa enthused, “It feels great , I am ready to take that plunge again and looking forward to be back on the big screen. It’s a refreshingly unique project and am looking forward to working with Sabbir. I loved my role, and it’s something I’ve never down before … I can’t wait for my audiences to see me in a new avataar,” smiles the effervescent ‘Phir Milenge’ actress.
Director Sabbir Khan says, “Fitness-guru and style-icon Shilpa is a much loved name as an agile dancer and a classy actress and she was very clear right at the onset that her comeback would have to be with a worthy role. It’s a dynamic part and I am glad to be working with Shilpa and bringing her back for her lakhs of loyal fans who have been missing her on the big screen.”
