Shilpa Shetty on being insecure of Shamita Shetty, ‘I always felt she’s the better looking sister’
In an interview, Shilpa Shetty revealed that she wasn't confident of people giving her any more work in Bollywood after Shamita Shetty debuted.
Actress Shilpa Shetty revealed of being insecure of her younger sister Shamit Shetty and felt that people will not give her any more work in Bollywood after Shamita Shetty made her debut.
Talking to Pinkvilla, Shilpa Shetty said, “We used to fight a lot when we were kids. There was a time I have locked Shamita inside daddy’s cupboard. Then, when she came out, she was mata chandalini (laughs). Then we have had huge fights. She and I have fought, I have thrown a sun mica piece at her and there’s a cut on her face.”
“My dad told me that I did feel a little left out in the first year. Shamita was fairer, I had dark complexion so I was going through an insecurity phase in my life. I used to ask my mom, ‘why did you make her fair and why did you made me dark?’ At night when she would be sleeping, apparently I would go and pinch her and make her cry.” Shilpa Shetty added.
Further, the ‘Dhadkan’ actress spoke about being insecure of her sister, “I always felt she’s the better-looking sister, the fairer one. She’s a better actress and a dancer. So I’ll admit this for the first time on this show that when she debuted, I did feel that nobody would give me work anymore after that.”
On the work front, Shilpa Shetty will be making her comeback in the romantic comedy action film, ‘Nikamma’ alongside Abhimanyu Dassani and Shirley Setia. Next, she will star in the comedy film ‘Hungama 2’ with Paresh Rawal, Meezaan Jaffrey, and Pranitha Subhash.
