Shilpa Shetty to produce film with boyfriend Raj Kundra
Shilpa Shetty launched her own brand of perfume S2, then she went on to play the central character in the Broadway musical, Miss Bollywood and recently she launched her Yoga DVD. Now after all these ventures, the actress wants to produce a film in 2008 in which she will also star. Sources claim that boyfriend Raj Kundra is also involved in the project and will be co-producing the film along with Shilpa.
Shilpa will produce a film and will also star in it. Shilpa was toying with the idea of producing a film since quite some time now, but she has been quite busy with her other projects. Many corporate houses were also keen to collaborate with Shetty on the film project. However Shilpa already has S2 Global Productions under which she launched her Yoga DVD and she hopes to produce films too under the same banner. Raj Kundra, a businessman who also handles some of Shilpa's ventures convinced her to produce the film along with him. The film will be a woman centric, comedy film and there will be two female protagonists. Shilpa is currently in talks with a few actresses to play the second lead in the film. Shilpa is also looking for a talented director to direct her film. A source claims "Shilpa is quite impressed with Manish Jha who has directed one film and also her Yoga DVD. She is planning to ask him to direct her first production."
Apparently Shilpa also plans to get a few well known Hollywood celebs to do cameos in her film. Shilpa recently admitted to seeing businessman Raj Kundra. When Raj asked her to produce the film, Shilpa immediately agreed. Shilpa is looking forward to turning producer. Although Shilpa has got a lot of media coverage after winning the UK based reality show Big Brother and has indulged in a few ventures, her bollywood career still seems to be dwindling with the actress having few films in her kitty. So will Shilpa's own production in which she is also slated to star in, give her bollywood career the much desired push?
