Mini Biography :
Among very few actresses, Shilpa Shetty was nominated for her first film ‘Baazigar’. The following year she delivered another blockbuster hit ‘Main Khiladi Tu Anari’ where she starred with Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan. However, the proceeding years her movies failed to succeed at the box office, though she did receive critical acclaim for some of her performances. Then in 1998, ‘Pardesi Babu’ was released and people noticed her again. Two years after that she finally delivered a super hit, ‘Dhadkan’. Since then her career has taken an up turn. In 2002, she had several releases and films like ‘Hathyar’ and ‘Rishtey’. They solidified her status as a brilliant actress. In ‘Rishtey’ she stole the show from superstars Anil Kapoor and Karishma Kapoor. However, it was in 2004 that her performance in ‘Phir Milenge’ that brought her to the top actress list. In 2005, she delivered modest hits like ‘Fareb’ (where she costarred with sister Shamita Shetty and Manoj Bajpai) and Dus. Though she has worked with top actors, unlike many Bollywood actresses who are either scared of or shy away from working with top actresses, Shilpa has worked with numerous talented actresses (such as Juhi Chawla, Raveena Tandon, Manisha Koirala, Tabu, Kajol, Mahima Chaudhry and Konkona Sen Sharma) and is said to share a great rapport with her co-stars.
