Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty Kundra's stint on TV started in 2008, when she hosted ‘Bigg Boss 2'. Over the years, she has also judged a few dance-based reality shows. Now she has been offered a role in a TV series.
A source close to Shilpa says, “The show will have 20-22 episodes, something like Anil Kapoor's ongoing TV series.”
Apparently, a Mumbai-based production house thought Shilpa was perfect for the show. “It is based on real-life incidents and will feature inspirational stories,” says the source, adding that the actor is yet to go through the script and take a call. “She has been busy with her brand endorsements, entrepreneurial ventures and fitness-related projects,” says the source.
When contacted, Shilpa says that while she doesn't mind taking on a show with limited episodes, long-running daily soaps are a no-no. “Though I admire the dedication of TV actors [in such shows], I don't have the time for daily soaps. TV needs a lot of time and energy,” she says.
Well, here's hoping this actress gets as much success as Anil Kapoor's 24.
