Shamita Shetty: I have learnt to be happy with whatever I have
Talking about the ups and downs in her career Shamita sister of actress Shilpa Shetty says that every experience in life has taught her so much about herself as a person….
Shamita Shetty does wonder how her career would be different if she had taken up more work, but lives without any regret. The actress says all her ups and downs helped her evolve, and she is “happy and content” at the moment.
“There are many times when I sit back and try to analyse the things that I could have done differently. Maybe I should have taken on more work, but then again I don’t know if I would have been happy doing work that I was not convinced with,” Shamita told IANS in an email.
She added, “Unfortunately, giving up on work because I was not convinced (meant) I would not be seen onscreen too much (and) made people think that I left the industry, which was really not the case. On the whole, I don’t think I have any regrets. Every decision that I have made and all the ups and downs made me the person that I am. I am happy and content. I go with the flow and I don’t fight situations anymore. I have learnt to be happy with whatever I have.”
Shamita, sister of actress Shilpa Shetty, scored a dream debut with Yash Raj Films’ Mohabbatein, but post that her career went downhill.
Some of her projects like Wajahh: A Reason to Kill, Bewafaa, Zeher, Fareb and Cash went unnoticed, and in some she just made special appearances.
The actress, who has appeared in reality TV shows like Bigg Boss and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa as well, admits that “every experience in life — good, bad or ugly — has taught me so much about myself as a person”…
