It was in 2000 when Shilpa Shetty’s sister Shamita made her big Bollywood debut with Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Mohabbatien’. While the movie did well at the box office, unfortunately, Shamita failed to leave a mark.
Post ‘Mohabbatein’, Shamita was seen in several movies but nothing worked for her and she went on from doing second leads to item songs.
While the actress says that acting is her passion, she also feels that she has not really been given a chance to explore her talent in that field.
"Dancing is my passion of course and so is acting. I think, I am not really been given a chance to explore acting that much unfortunately, but I hope to do that in new future," Shamita told IANS.
Shetty was last seen in ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded’ and won hearts with her sizzling dance moves. In fact, she also credits her stint at dance reality show for reintroducing her to the entertainment industry.
"I think 'Jhalak...' kind of reintroduced me back to the entertainment industry. Right now, I am busy with lots of events in terms of dancing but I have not signed any new projects.
"However, I am looking at doing some interesting work on TV as I am getting some offers there. I am looking for something different there," she said.
