Meanwhile, Shilpa will soon be seen in Nikamma, which also stars Abhimanyu Dassani and Shirley Setia. The film will release in theatres in June 2022. Speaking at the trailer launch of her film, Shilpa thanked her fans for their support. “I feel a lot of gratitude and happiness. You have reminded me that it’s been 30 years for me in the film industry. I don’t know how people have tolerated me. People were far more forgiving then. Today audience is smart, so today you have to work a lot. I feel the reason why I have lasted so long is because I love my work very much,” she had said.
