The so-called 'biography' of Shilpa Shetty which is doing roaring business in the UK and has hit Indian shores this week, is actually an unauthorized book. "Shilpa has not spoken about her life to its author Julie Aspinall," revealed the actresses' publicist Dale Bhagwagar.
Apparently, her quotes used in the book are borrowed from various magazine and television interviews. Also, it can be analyzed that the book is incorrectly termed a 'biography' as it misses out chronicling most aspects of the actresses' life and career, except from giving liberal accounts of her past relationship with Akshay Kumar.
Bhagwagar agrees, "The book mainly concentrates on the happenings during and after 'Big Brother' and on Shilpa's iconic rise to worldwide fame followed by the transition from actress to diva".
So can Shilpa be expected to release an 'authorized' biography or pen an autobiography in the near future? "Since last year, a new exciting phase has materialized for brand Shilpa Shetty. The market is huge and spread over countries. But Shilpa has many more miles to cover before picking up the pen," says the publicist.
"Posterity isn't on her mind right now. What she is concentrating on, is selecting her next interesting movie role from the varied scripts she has been receiving almost every week," he adds.
