Shilpa Shirodkar thanks movie career for comeback
Mumbai: Actress Shilpa Shirodkar is set to make a comeback to acting after 13 years, but on the small screen. She will be seen in TV show ‘Ek Mutthi Aasman’.
"I must have done something good in the 1990s that I got this opportunity to come back after 13 years," the 43-year-old said here Wednesday at the launch of the show. She is known for films like ‘Hum’, ‘Gopi Kishan’ and ‘Khuda Gawah’.
Shilpa, a known face of Hindi cinema in the 1990s, left the industry after marriage.
"I got married in 2000 and I left the industry because my mother believed that everything has a shelf life and you should never try to extend it. So it was important that I got married and have kids and make my home," Shilpa said.
In the show, she plays a housemaid, Kamla Bai who has big dreams for her children.
When asked what dream she harbours for her real-life nine-year-old daughter, Shilpa said, "Right now I don`t have to make her anything, it`s only studies for her. I just want her to open her books more than the television."
‘Ek Mutthi Aasman’ also stars Ashish Chowdhry and goes on air Aug 26 on Zee TV.
