Hollywood's not for me : Shilpa Shetty

india Updated: Sep 13, 2006 13:48 IST

Shilpa Shetty has dismissed rumours of having signed a Hollywood film with director Roger Mende. 

Denying all such baseless reports, Shilpa told IANS: "Most certainly not! But I went to Tirupati on Sunday night. I've walked up and down to the temple bare feet the whole night and I could certainly do with a spot of humour right now. The report that I'm doing a horror film called Forever with - who is it? - yeah, Roger Mende, gives me that much-needed relief."

The news broke when international website imdb.com, incorrectly listed Shilpa Shetty's name in the cast of US-based director Roger Mende's international film Forever.

Shilpa, who has just recovered from serious mouth ulcerations, said: "I couldn't say much in the first episode of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa because of mouth ulcers."

After her visit to Tirupati, Shilpa is in a sober mood and says she is too busy with her Bollywood projects to think about international films.

"Hollywood is something I've never given a serious thought to. The closest I came to doing an international project was Mahmood Sipra's Sooraj Ka Dastak, which Madhuri Dixit and I were supposed to do. Now I'm too busy back home to head westwards," said the fatigued actress.

"I have to shoot for Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. Going to Tirupati has become an annual event for me. I've been doing it for four years. Believe me, I feel rejuvenated the minute I reach the holy spot. This year my sister Shamita couldn't accompany me because she is shooting for Cash in South Africa."
