No, Shilpa Shetty Didn’t Always Dream Of Becoming An Actress; This Is What She Wanted

This fun-filled episode of Sunday Brunch was a laughter riot with this crazy duo, Shilpa Shetty and Kusha Kapila. They star together in Sukhee, a movie that came out in 2023. We delved into the chapters of childhood dreams and career options. We discovered that both of them wanted to do something other than acting but did they ultimately follow that path? Watch the entire video to know all about their childhood dreams.

This Is What Shilpa Shetty Wanted To Be Instead Of An Actress

Kamiya questioned both of our guests about what they wanted to be when they grew up during their childhood days. Kusha straightforwardly replied that her answer used to be Doctor because that is what her mother wanted her to pursue. Meanwhile, Shilpa said that she attempted to follow in her father’s footsteps.

She elaborated that his father was a pilot and was fond of flying. Hence, it was quite obvious that her father wanted her to pursue a career in the aviation industry. She told us that she tried to fill in her father’s shoes but life had other plans. Another option was taking over her father’s business.

It was a small-scale business for medicine bottle caps. She mentioned that her father trained her from the basics with the wadding machine, an instrument for the insertion of lining material in caps. Upon learning this, she realised that it was quite boring. So, to not be stuck with this boring life, she became an actor. It is safe to say that her life has never been boring since then!

Kamiya interviewed Vidya Balan before filming this episode, so she stated, “Do you remember you and Vidya Balan played basketball together?” Upon hearing this, Shilpa said, “Really?” and Kusha did Jim’s classic stare into the camera from The Office because she couldn’t believe what she heard.

Shilpa couldn’t remember and said that it was Vidya’s sister. But Kamiya corrected her that Vidya disclosed she only practised for a day and decided she wasn’t built for basketball. If you want to know more about it then watch our Sunday Brunch with Vidya Balan.

Shilpa is also a great athlete and casually flexed that she played volleyball and represented Bombay Zone and Bombay District five times. She also revealed that she was almost selected for Nationals as well, woah!
