Shilpa Shetty: My mum cried when she saw my preliminary SSC result and called me ‘nikammi’ | Hindi Movie News



Shilpa Shetty has the spirit of a survivor and the best part is that she handles all life situations with her contagious smile. In a recent press interaction, she was asked about her pervasive sense of humor and she jokingly replied, “It comes from within.” Besides that, Shilpa credited her genes and remembered her late father Surendra Shetty and said, “I got that from my dad who had a great sense of humor. He was the life of every feature and party. He was that person who could laugh in difficult times and make everyone smile too.”

Shilpa made her cinematic return with Hungama 2 last year, but she revealed that Nikamma was supposed to be her marquee return. She said: “It was supposed to be my comeback outing, but I guess it wasn’t supposed to be. That said, I believe everything is going according to God’s plan and I’m going to say this, Nikamma is going to be my first. theatrical film.

Elaborating on the eccentric character she plays alongside Abhimanyu Dassani and Shirley Setia, Shilpa said, “I don’t think any heroine has played a character like this in a movie yet. I I’ll be playing the character of Avni. It’s been an incredible journey. Nikamma is a beautiful, clean, joyful film.” Adding emphasis to the devar-bhabhi relationship in the film, she said, “The devar bhabhi dynamic has not been explored much in Hindi films except for Sooraj Barjatya’s films.” Adding a cheeky twist, she said, “I guess it’s old wine in a new bottle.”

ETimes asked Shilpa if her parents Surendra and Sunanda ever called her nikamma, as parents usually do with their children. She shared an interesting memory and said, “It happened to me when my mum saw my preliminary report just before my SSC exam. I had scored around 48%, which was shameful.” She added, “I was a volleyball player. I was more into extracurricular activities and I was selected for the Bombay zone as a volleyball player. But, when my mother saw my result, she bawled for the first time. She said you were gonna be absolutely useless, worthless and nikammi.”

But Shilpa had other ideas than pursuing studies. She explained: “My goal in life at that time was to become a volleyball coach, so I felt my life was settled. But later when I realized my mother was upset with my scores and that I was a nikammi, I studied well for 10 days and scored a decent percentage.” All was well for Shilpa then as her mother was relieved.

One of the most exciting projects to feature is Rohit Shetty’s Indian Police, where Shilpa will be seen alongside Sidharth Malhotra. Talking about it, she said, “If I was going to do something big in a web series, it definitely wouldn’t get any bigger than a launch into Rohit’s detective universe.”

In the recent past, Shilpa candidly admitted that her role in Hungama 2, her comeback film, didn’t really do wonders. Explaining her position, she said, “I really wanted to work with Priyadarshan sir, but ideally it wasn’t supposed to be my comeback movie. I loved being part of the Hungama 2 team and I have a lot of respect to Priyadarshan sir.”

Shilpa will complete 3 decades in the film industry next year, talking about her long sleeves, she said, “There is still a lot to do. I still feel like a newcomer to the industry.

If I had ever felt that I had accomplished everything, that would have been the end of everything. You media wouldn’t have been sitting here interviewing me.”

Shilpa said she remains hopeful for the days ahead. After working hard on Nikamma, she leaves for a month-long pleasure and work trip abroad.
