Shilpa Shetty says no to American TV show 


The British reality show Big Brother bought Shilpa Shetty Kundraa lot of international attention after a racist comment was thrown to actress on national television.  While that did a lot of good publicity to the actress, Shilpa was met with yet another opportunity to reach most American households with the American television drama series ‘The Royals’ that premiered earlier this year on E!

Apparently, the makers approached Shilpa for a part on the popular television series but she had to turn it down due to prior commitments. The team required Shilpa to start shooting in mid-July for a 20 day stretch; however, Shilpaalready had a few projects in the pipeline, bearing the same dates.

Says a source, “The team of ‘The Royals’ were keen on Shilpa being a part of the show as a certain character suited her to the T and they were well aware of Shilpa’s popularity in England. Though Shilpa would have loved to do it, she was stuck with a prior commitment and couldn’t work around their dates”.

Nevermind, there is always a next time! On the work front we are hoping to catch a glimpse of Shilpa somewhere in 2016!
