The highlights of Shilpa Shetty’s Bollywood career have been her song ‘Chura ke dil mera’, her short lived tempestuous ‘good friendship’ with actor Akshay Kumar, the infamous dip and kiss from Richard Gere, winning Big Brother UK and of course marrying Raj Kundra. The last choice of course being the most viable thing Shilpa Shetty has done, a fancy retirement plan indeed!
In fact these days Shilpa Shetty is more in the news for her so called business ventures than for any acting quips. In fact Shilpa should have taken a page out of her sister Shamita’s book and announced her retirement from Bollywood. Ya right like we cared! Shilpa Shetty is a symbol of larger things. Perfect example of a non actor let off to pastures in the palatial estate of a rich man. Many others like her have married and settled down to domestic bliss. Raveena Tandon, Twinkle Khanna, Madhuri Dixit are just some who had the good sense to marry before their shelf life waned in Bollywood.
Others aren’t as lucky. Take for example Urmila Matondkar who is often spotted drunk and tottering at filmi parties. Still others are unfortunate enough to have married habitual playboys like Karishma Kapoor. Its seems to me the only post retirement plan worth anything in Bollywood is to marry for money!
