It’s not every day that an actor praises another, especially if she has nothing to do with her movies at all. But Shilpa Shetty is generous with her compliments for Deepika Padukone, whose act in Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela is making waves.

Asked about the current crop of female actors, the 38-year-old drops a few top names and says she is happy they are enjoying their days in the sun. After some thought, she adds, “I really like Deepika among the rest; she has the perfect looks and features. Also, be it her dancing or acting, I think she has the potential to make it as one of the best female actors of Bollywood.”

That doesn’t mean she is missing her own heyday in the industry. She is, in fact, very proud of the many hats she’s wearing these days. “I am the first actor who has done so much — I act, I’m a mother, I own an IPL team, produce films, I’ve launched fitness DVDs, hosted television shows, I’m judging a TV reality show, and I have multiple business ventures,” says the very confident Shilpa, who was in Delhi on Friday.

It’s her first production venture, Dhishkyaoon (starring Sunny Deol and Harman Baweja) that’s keeping her the most busy these days. “It’s a dark action comedy and I am really looking forward to it,” says the actor, who is just back from her fourth wedding anniversary in Goa.
