Shamita Shetty says – “I have been through ups and downs and it has made me a stronger and who I am today. I have no regrets. I am thankful for the life I have and most of all, to be working even after 20 years is big deal. I have not done as much work as I would have liked to, but, at least, I am given the opportunity to be a part of the industry and I am grateful for that.”
Shamita Shetty also tells- “I have people who keep me grounded and in touch with reality. I am in touch with people in industry, who have been in my life for years. The industry can be a fake world and you can lose yourself here, if you are not careful.”
Shamita Shetty further adds – “When you are alone and trapped in your home, no matter how much money or fancy stuff you have, nothing matters. Nothing can get you out of that situation. It makes you think, what is important in life. I made a few changes and kept people and things that mattered to me. I tried to get rid of negativity. Though I live alone, luckily, I had family close-by and I spent quality time with them”.
She says – “On the work front, I was grateful that I got to work on a show during the pandemic. I was dying to get out and start working. We followed all Covid protocols while shooting in Kolkata.”
Shamita Shetty reminisces – “When I was younger, it was different but now I enjoy the peace and quiet. I remember by fortieth birthday celebration was a surprise party. Shilpa (Shetty; sister) and Raj (Kundra; brother-in-law) whisked me away to Phuket, Thailand, and had organised everything. It was just so wonderful and amazing.”
