In an earlier interview with Times of India, Shilpa Shetty had shared her excitement on her return and said, “It feels great. I am ready to take the plunge again. It's a refreshing and unique project, and I am looking forward to working with Sabbir. I loved my role as it's something that I have never attempted before. I can't wait for the audience to see me in a new avatar.”
Shetty was last seen in the movie Apne (2007), after which she kept her appearance limited to the small screen by judging dance reality shows like Super Dancer, Nach Baliye (Season 5, 6) and hosted a reality show titled Soney Ka Dil, which she also co-produced along with her husband Raj Kundra.
Director Khan had also added, “Shilpa was very clear that her comeback would have to be with a worthy role. It's a dynamic part and I am happy to have her on board and bring her back for her fans who have missed her.”
For Dassani, this would be his second movie, after he made his acting debut in the action-comedy movie Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota. Youtube singer and performer Shirley Setia will be seen making her debut in this film.
The movie has been produced under the banner of Sony Pictures Networks India and Shabbir Khan Films and is slated for a 2020 release.Read More
