Shilpa trashes Akki rumours
IIFA this year at Yorkshire plans to honour Shilpa for her global impact after Big Brother.
True to her nature, Shilpa is oblivious of what awaits her at IIFA. "But then when have I ever known what lies in store for me ahead?
I'm busy preparing my act. Shiamak Davar is choreographing me. A solo act, mind you, " she stresses, cutting down rumours that she plans to dance with Akshay Kumar at IIFA. "No way! I'm doing one solo act. That's it."
Shilpa has had a major reprieve from her legal wrangles, thanks to the Supreme Court's decision to transfer all the cases pending against her for the Richard Gere kiss to Mumbai. And now the look-out note against Shilpa has also been revoked. Shilpa has never felt freer.
"I feel I can breathe easy. The past few weeks have been so stressful. The honorable judge has made sure that his verdict isn't just a relief to me but all those who are similarly harassed."
"It's a really really good thing. I'm so happy to see our legal system being so fair to someone like me who's constantly been harassed by PILs and legal notices….What have I done?
I guess it's my karma to see me and my family being subjected to constant harassment. Anyway it was just a minority of voices causing this tremendous stress in my family life."
Now she's busy putting finishing touches to her next film, Anil Sharma's Apne which she says is very proud of. " More than myself, I'm relieved for my parents' sake. They've had to face the brunt of it (the Gere –mard controversy). While I've been busy with work my lawyers were constantly connecting with my parents, signing affidavits, powers of attorney, etc. It was terrible."
Tell her she's paying too high a price for her success Shilpa sighs. "When I meet the masses I find them very appreciative. I don't know who are these people who target me. But I've got a hang of the ability to go with the flow. The rest is up to God."
