Shilpa Breathes Life into Dead Film

Actress Shilpa Shetty may not be a popular heroine anymore in India, but in the UK the Shilpa fever still soars.

And, it is this Brit popularity that brought to the fore the resurrection of a film - Humsaaya: The Shadow - that was shelved a long time ago.

The film, which has Dino Morea in the lead, was shelved due to differences between the producers. However, with Shilpa's Big Brother win, a UK production house has shown interest in the project, and in all probability the film will come back on floors.

Director Kawal Sharma informs us, "When she heard the script for the first time ever, Shilpa was so excited that she reduced her fees for us. It's great that a production house has shown interest in my project. However, their approaching us is just the initial phase, let's see how it all turns out," says an excited Sharma, who is keeping his fingers crossed.
