Shilpa Shetty, a Bollywood diva and judge on the dance reality show Super Dancer Chapter 4, recently took a hiatus. Due to her husband’s arrest, the actress has been missing in action. Anurag Basu, a director and her co-judge, told a leading daily yesterday that he misses her on set. He went on to say that he had no idea when the actress will return to the show.
However, according to SpotboyE, the actress is back in action and will be filming the episode today. Shilpa was kept out of the spotlight after her husband, Raj Kundra, was charged with pornography. He’s been detained for a couple weeks now.
Shilpa skipped shooting for the show on July 20 and is shooting for the episode today, almost a month later. The episode’s details are still unknown.
The filmmaker had told HT, “Yes, absolutely, we miss Shilpa a lot on set. There’s a bonding between all of us, who’re a part of the show, and which also includes people behind the scene and the choreographers. We’re a small family and when one person isn’t around, then bahut mushkil hota hai. Shilpa is dear to us.”
“I have no clue. I had sent her a message asking, ‘When are you coming back’, but I got no reply, so I don’t know when she will be back. I can’t say. I don’t know what’s happening. Let’s hope (she returns) soon. I’m just looking forward,” he added.
Guest judges have been filling in for Shilpa Shetty’s absence on Super Dancer Chapter 4 so far, ranging from Karisma Kapoor, Sonali Bendre, Riteish Deshmukh, and Genelia D’Souza.
