Bollywood actress turned producer Shilpa Shetty is quite excited about her upcoming film 'Dishkiyaaoon', which is set in the backdrop of Mumbai underworld.
Shilpa Shetty has donned producer's hat for the film, which stars Sunny Deol, Harman Baweja and debutante Ayesha Khanna.
"It is full-on masala entertainer. It is an interesting film on underworld, imagine Shilpa Shetty making a film on Mumbai underworld, it sounds bizarre. But I loved the script. It is the story of a guy who wants to make it as a gangster... the struggle of this one guy. It is an emotional story. It has beautiful songs," Shilpa Shetty told PTI in an interview.
Many underworld films these days are inspired by real-life gangsters from Dawood Ibrahim to Manya Surve. But Shilpa is not willing to share who the protagonist of her film is based on.
"I can't comment on that" was all she said.
The film is set to release on January 10 next year. Reportedly, Sunny Leone-starrer 'Ragini MMS 2' is likely to release on the same day.
"We are not shifting the release date. I would be worried if an action film would have got released (simultaneously), ours is an action entertainer and 'Ragini MMS 2' is a horror film and there is space for every film," she said.
There is a buzz about sequel to her hit film 'Dhadkan'.
"Obviously I can't do it. Ratan Jain (producer) is looking forward to do the film and I wish him all the best," she said.
Acting is not Shilpa Shetty's priority now as she wants to be with her son Viaan. "I would not work (act) for another one and half years as it is the most crucial time with my child. I don't miss acting.... There is no time to miss it as there is so much happening in my life these days. I do few things on-screen for creative satisfaction," Shilpa said.
