Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty is gearing up for the release of her next film, Sukhee. At the trailer launch event on Wednesday, she revealed that she had initially turned down the role, but was convinced by her husband Raj Kundra to take it up.
Shilpa Shetty was “not in the right headspace” to do Sukhee, but husband Raj Kundra convinced her: “He forced me to do”
It all started when Shilpa revealed that initially, she had reservations about doing the film due to personal reasons. Shetty said that she was not in the right headspace to do the film at the time, but Kundra read the script and told her that she had to do it.
“He told me, ‘Are you crazy? You have to do this film!’ He convinced me to take up the film. He forced me to do it and told me there’s a ‘Sukhee’ in all of us. If a man can think that way for a woman-oriented film…,” Shetty said.
Shilpa also revealed that she suggested alternative actors for the role. The film’s producer, Vikram Malhotra, was understanding and patient, assuring Shilpa that they would proceed with the project whenever she felt ready. This led to an eight-month delay in the film’s production.
Directed by Sonal Joshi, Sukhee also stars Chaitanya Chaudhary, Kiran Kumar and Kusha Kapila. It is set to release on September 22.
