Shilpa to write cookery book
By Subhash K. Jha, IANS
Actress Shilpa Shetty, who has landed here after winning the "Celebrity Big Brother" show, is all set to write a cookery book called "Curry Rules".
Chicken curry has acquired a new drool rule in Britain after Shilpa's experience with the dish on "Big Brother"...and Shilpa aptly inked a deal to write a cookery book.
"That's the first thing that I've actually decided to do. There's a massive demand for my cookery book. I want to call it 'Curry Rules'," Shilpa told IANS.
"You know I love cooking. I love to cook for my friends. I cooked every day at the 'Big Brother' house," said Shilpa who went straight to the Siddhivinayak temple after reaching Mumbai Saturday.
Shilpa has sealed a massive deal for the cookbook. Also on the anvil is an autobiography. "But before that I'll be writing a book on my experiences with 'Big Brother'."
Further, a dessert in Britain too has been named after Shilpa.
"The menu at the lunch with British Prime Minister Tony Blair was based on my preferences. And the dessert was named Shilpa's Delight, after me."
There's also a perfume to be named after Shilpa whose fragrance will piggy ride her newfound fame in Britain.
"Isn't that something? I can finally spread the fragrance of my fame in a bottle," she giggled.
Before returning to India, Shilpa skimmed through a large number of deals offered to her in London.
"But a lot of the so-called information about my deals are just hearsay. There're some very interesting film and TV offers. But I don't know how many of these I want to do. Everyday is choc-a-block with engagements. My life is run by my agent and PR guy right now."
"I've shot exclusive covers for a whole lot of British magazines. The first week after 'Big Brother' has gone into media interviews and explaining my stand on racism.
"Channel 4 was really scared about what I'd say. If I spoke one word against 'Big Brother', the channel would have had to close down the show. So damage control was my chosen agenda in the first week."
