Being in the media glare only hurts- Shilpas’ publicist Dale


Shilpa ShettySome people feel that there has been an overdose of Shilpa Shetty. But her publicist Dale Bhagwagar disagrees.

"Being in the media glare only hurts when one hasn't got anything to talk about. But after METRO, Shilpa's got APNE; her recently launched perfume S2; a DVD video on Yoga to be shot in the Himalayas; a chain of restaurants coming up - starting with one in Central London; her cookery book; her signature designer wear collection; a Broadway musical and the role of Sita in Uru Patel's international venture HANUMAN," says Dale.

Nevertheless, if one looks at both the box office response and audience reaction to Shilpa's two releases METRO and APNE, one can't help but observe that she is truly on a roll. One can see the success which METRO is enjoying till date even 8 weeks after its release as the film has shown amazing stability (and even improvement) in its collections. The film's DVD has also opened to a very good response.

On the other hand though APNE is an out and out Deol film, Shilpa has been noticed for the small part she plays. Ironically, post her super celebrity status and subsequent success of METRO, audience has actually been heard complaining about her lack of screen time in the film.

Dale continues, "Anyways don't think that the work Shilpa is currently doing is all! This is because all of this would be followed by other interesting announcements which we have currently kept under wraps. With so much to talk about, one can't avoid the media attention," he remarks. After learning about all this, we can't help but agree.
