“I am happy about taking a sabbatical. I love doing films but I am extremely real. When I stopped doing films, no great offers were coming my way. There was no great work happening. I had to stay in people’s minds and when the Dostana track came my way, I took it. I never intended to be an item girl. The song was a huge hit but I didn’t want to do the same thing over and over again either” states Shilpa with complete modesty. The actress is enjoying her ‘happy’ phase.
“My priorities have changed. I am planning to launch my production house soon. I have people along with me who handle the businesses. I am learning a lot from my husband on the business front. You have to update yourself. You can’t restrict your knowledge to films. My goal is to achieve personal happiness.” The actress concluded, “I’d love to act but not for the next two years at least.”
