Mumbai: Shamita, the younger sibling of Shilpa Shetty has finally given up her Bollywood aspirations. The struggling actress is now heading to London for a career in interior designing. (Cortesy: Mid-Day.com)
Reveals Shilpa, "Shamita is now entering another phase in her life and career. She is now heading to London for a six-month course in interior designing. We all felt this was the right move for her to make."
Significantly, Shamita moves to another career at a time when Shilpa herself has taken a sabbatical of sorts from acting. However, in her case, it is voluntary.
Explains Shilpa, "At the moment, I'm playing the most satisfying role of my life - that of a housewife. Films were never the be-all-end-all of my life. Right now I find the idea of looking after my home far more exciting and challenging than rushing off to studios early morning."
No sibling advantage
Guess it is never easy being a star-sibling. Except sisters Kareena and Karishma Kapoor there are hardly any siblings, both of who have made it big in Bollywood. Here is a list of stars and their brothers or sisters whose movies fell flat on the BO:
Aamir Khan - Faisal Khan
Salman Khan - Sohail Khan
Kajol - Tanishaa
Sridevi - Srilatha
Rekha - Radha
Anil Kapoor - Sanjay Kapoor
Randhir, Rishi Kapoor - Rajeev Kapoor
Sunil Sutt - Som Dutt
Sanjay, Feroz Khan - Akbar Khan
Mehmood - Anwar
