Shilpa Shetty turns producerMarch 21st, 2008 - 8:45 pm ICT by admin
New Delhi, March 21 (IANS) Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty is all set to turn producer with a big budget action-comedy film. A few top international technicians will be part of the crew of the as-yet-untitled film being produced by Shilpa’s production house S2 Global Productions. The actor’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar confirmed the news.
“The film will have two heroines. While Shilpa will be playing one part, she is in the process of signing on another big Bollywood star for the other part,” he said in a press statement.
Shilpa hit the jackpot after winning the British television reality show “Celebrity Big Brother 2007″ and became a big name. Her emoting in films like “Phir Milenge” (2004), “Dus” (2005), “Apne” (2007) and “Metro” (2007) also fetched her acclaim. She has become selective about the roles she takes up.
“Shilpa now only takes up those roles which give her complete creative satisfaction,” Bhagwagar said.
According to the grapevine, Shilpa is being offered a number of projects in Hollywood too. To this, her publicist said: “It is natural for her to get a number of offers after the international fame that she has earned.”
The actor’s forthcoming movies include Sunny Deol and Neeraj Pathak’s “The Man”, and an international venture titled “Hanuman” with filmmaker Uru Patel.
“‘The Man’ will see Shilpa portraying the role of a simple, dedicated girl who rises to instant global stardom - very similar to her real life experience. In ‘Hanuman’, she would be portraying Goddess Sita,” he said.
Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves is being tipped to play the role of Lord Ram in “Hanuman”.
