Time and again, film industry circles have insisted that Shilpa Shetty and Anubhav Sinha, who directed her in the film Dus, are about to get married. Studio corridors are buzzing with the news of their impending marriage yet again.
Although both the actress and the director have denied the rumours vehemently, there has been no clarification from the director’s wife Ratna, who is “uncontactable.” Sources state that she has moved out of her husband’s house in Andheri to New Delhi, with their six-yearold son.
A film industry source said that Shilpa Shetty and the director have made plans to tie the knot in February next year.
The actress was uncontactable but Sinha dismissed the marriage talk in an SMS to HT about the wedding plans: “What date and venue? Does she know about it? Ha ha ha ha. Arre kaam karne de yaar (let me work, pal).” Interestingly, Shilpa, who last worked with Sinha in Dus, had decided not to work with the director again after rumours of their ‘affair’ surfaced. So she will not be seen in his next project, Cash, which was filmed mostly in Cape Town, South Africa.
However, sister Shamita Shetty stars in the film in one of the leading roles.
Shilpa will be seen only in an item number in the film, which will be shot in Mumbai. The move, apparently, is to scotch rumours of an affair, which would have been fuelled further if the actress had flown to Cape Town for the shoot.
Interestingly, some time back, Shilpa decided to cut down on her assignments. Currently, she is shooting for two films – Anil Sharma’s Apne and Anurag Basu’s Metro. And there has been no news of her taking on new projects.
