Shirley Setia on working with Shilpa Shetty in ‘Nikamma’: I have learned a lot from her; she has a lot of positivity and knowledge
Shirley Setia is all set to show off her acting prowess in Sabbir Khan’s upcoming film, ‘Nikamma’ co-starring Abhimanyu Dassani. She will also be seen sharing screen space with Shilpa Shetty Kundra who will end her sabbatical from films with the movie. In an exclusive interview with ETimes, Shirley opens up about her first day in front of the camera on the sets of ‘Nikamma’.
“We shot for one of our songs first, and I will never forget the energy that was there amongst us all,” she recalls, adding, “The entire team helped me so much and did not make me feel like it was my debut song shoot at all”.
Spilling the beans on how she came on board for the film, she adds, “After Sabbir Khan sir’s team approached me, I went to meet him. I did many workshops with them. Sabbir sir took my audition to check whether I fit the role of his lead character or not. I guess I did, so I was on board”.
Talking about her bond with her co-stars Abhimanyu and Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Shirley gushes, “It has been great working with Abhimanyu. He is kind, sweet and very helpful. He made me feel very comfortable on set. As far as working with Shilpa ma’am is concerned, it was simply amazing. I learned a lot from her and her energy on the set is infectious. She has a lot of positivity and knowledge and I hope I get to work with her again soon.”
