Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s stint on TV started in 2008, when she hosted Bigg Boss 2. Over the years, she has also judged a few dance-based reality shows. Now, she has been offered a role in a TV series.

A source close to Shilpa says, “The show will have 20-22 episodes, something like Anil Kapoor’s ongoing TV series.”

Apparently, a Mumbai-based production house thought Shilpa was perfect for the show. “It is based on real-life incidents and will feature inspirational stories,” says the source, adding that the actor is yet to go through the script and take a call. “She has been busy with her brand endorsements, entrepreneurial ventures and fitness-related projects,” says the source.

Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s first stint on TV started in 2008, when she hosted Bigg Boss 2.

When contacted, Shilpa says that while she doesn’t mind taking on a show with limited episodes, long-running daily soaps are a no-no. “Though I admire the dedication of TV actors [in such shows], I don’t have the time for daily soaps. TV needs a lot of time and energy,” she says.
