Shilpa Shetty's work front

Shetty returned to the big screen after nearly 13 years with Hungama 2 in 2021. Her last outing was Nikamma which turned out to be a critical and commercial dud. She will be next seen in Sukhee which will release on September 22. The film is directed by Sonal Joshi and written by Radhika Anand, Paulomi Dutta, and Rupinder Inderjit. It stars Kusha Kapila, Amit Sadh, Chaitanya Choudhry, Dilnaz Irani, Pavleen Gujral, Kiran Kumar, and Vinod Nagpal. Apart from that, Shetty is also working on the Kannada film KD - The Devil directed by Prem as well as Rohit Shetty's action cop web series Indian Police Force, co-starring Sidharth Malhotra.


In an interview with India Today, Shetty talked about her apprehensions about doing solo lead movies. She said, “I am very scared of taking up projects where I am the main protagonist because the onus then lies on your shoulders and it is too much pressure. She further added, “Your worth is decided basis your box office numbers. An actor's job is to do their job. Box office cannot be the deciding factor on how much we should be commanding."

In the early 2000s, Shetty took a break from Bollywood and appeared in the television reality show Big Brother. In the meantime, she made special appearances in songs.
