Shilpa Shetty spills the beans about how her showbiz joined started, says 'A neighbour asked to do my photography'

Shilpa Shetty is one of the most popular actresses of B-town. While there was no one in her family from the industry, she still managed to achieve milestones. Reminiscing her journey on her 45th birthday, she told a leading website about how she began her showbiz journey. "I come from a Bunt family, and I was the first one to join the film industry. I think Aishwarya became a model before or after that, I don't remember. I got introduced to the industry in 1993 and it was sort of coming out of age for our community people. I remember before the film got released, everyone in the community would talk in a hushed tone. Not that my family ever cared, my parents were very modern and unorthodox. It all happened organically, " said Shilpa.
The Dhadkan actress further revealed how a neighbor asked to photograph her. "I wanted to be a model growing up because someone told me about it and I was tall. I had a neighbour who randomly told me he would photograph me and made all arrangements. It was all destined. He apparently saw me at a show which I lost but told me he wanted to shoot me. He got the pictures done for me, and we distributed it. I was 16-17, a producer wanted me for a project and he came and convinced my dad. My first film became such a huge hit that it was impossible for me to travel on public transport after that, " she concluded.

Grateful to have this precious time... some ME time that we underestimate. I’ve always wanted to take a vow of silence, for the longest time (did it 12 yrs ago), but it’s always seemed impossible to do with my life and commitments. When we fast, we cleanse the body; but when we keep silent, we cleanse the mind. With this lockdown I’m sure our minds are on an overdrive of thoughts, with pent up feelings of fear and worry. Try and observe a ‘Karna mauna’; you can still communicate through actions or messages, but limit your actions with no words. It’s a great exercise to curb anger & negative feelings, reflect on your inner self, and make you weigh your words in the future. They say when you practice this from time-to-time it helps master your tongue, which can kill as well as heal... Try it, can’t be a better time... start with 2/3 hours on weekends and you will feel liberated and enlightened with the experience. . . . . . #20DaysOfGratefulness #Day14 #VowOfSilence #IndiaFightsCorona #gratitude #time #thoughts #reflection
