It seems, the word 'Big' is lucky for Shilpa Shetty. After an unsuccessful film career, the much awaited popularity came to her with international reality show Big Brother. Ironically, after shedding a pool of tears, thanks to her tormentor Jade Goody, she rose to fame and hasn't looked back since.
She was elegance personified in Bigg Boss (the Indian version of Big Brother) and soon won the hearts of couch potatoes.
Riding high on her international fame and newfound love Raj Kundra, Shilpa Shetty also ventured into IPL and hogged a lot of space in newsprints again. The actress also acquired a Gourmet chain with beau Raj recently.
It is rather strange for a girl to have achieved success this way who had a dream debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Baazigar. She looked promising but most of her subsequent movies were commercial debacles. She didn't look polished and lacked the instinct of choosing the right movies.
Success came to her, but in moderation. Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Dhadkan, Phir Milenge, Dus and Life in a Mero are some of her successful films.
Shilpa Shetty is now awaiting the release of her upcoming venture The Man. Let's see what takes place first - Shilpa's wedding with her man or release of her The Man!
