After announcing a break from acting earlier this year, Shipa Shetty has revealed in a recent newspaper interview that she isn’t missing her movie roles at all and is enjoying being able to focus on her other business ventures.
As well as admitting she isn’t missing her old life as a Bollywood actress, the 36-year-old also revealed the real reason behind her decision to break from the movie industry for two years.
While there were many rumours doing the rounds after Shilpa announced her sabbatical from acting, the actress turned businesswoman says the real reason was due to a lack of interesting movie roles being offered to her.
According to the former Big Brother winner, the only films she was being offered involved her playing a character similar to one she’d portrayed previously, and Shilpa decided to avoid repeating herself, she’d take herself out of the acting world for an extended break.
Leaving the glitz and glamour of the film industry behind her hasn’t had a negative effect, in fact the Bollywood star said she is very content with her life without acting, adding that she now has the time to focus on her other business commitments and her marriage to Raj Kundra.
Shilpa has been very busy outside of acting in recent times, working on her own range of yoga DVDs, opening a spa and launching a discounted real estate website, to name just a handful of actress and model’s business projects.
