I don't want to do item numbers again : Shamita Shetty
Times Of Dhaka : Actress Shamita Shetty, known for her performances in films like “Mohabbatein” and Zeher, says she will not do item numbers again in movies.
The actress, whose item repertoire includes “Sharara Sharara” from “Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai” and “Chori Pe Chori” in “Saathiya” (2002), said she hates the tag of item girl.
“I am tired of saying no to item songs. I don't want to be known as an item number girl. Fortunately, we actors get tagged easily,” the younger sister of Shilpa Shetty told PTI.
“I am looking to do something that challenges me as an actor. Now people are experimenting with various roles and subjects. I am open to doing everything. I don't want to do a film where I am just a show piece,” Shamita said.
“If there is fantastic character that comes my way which will shine either ways, then I am open to doing supportive roles as well. I don't want to restrict myself,” she added.
During her ten-year long career as an actress, she has also worked in a few Tamil and Telugu films but Shamita is not happy with the quantity of work she has done. “I have barely done something in my career. I was happy with the work I did, but I was not happy with the amount of work that I did,” she said.
“The wait for good work kept getting longer, I chose to learn something new - interior designing. I started getting more work there. So people thought I quit acting, but that was never the case, I was still waiting for something good to come my way. Acting has always been my first passion and it will always be,” she said.
The actress also hopes that her stint in Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa would give her a new lease of life in Bollywood.
