Pregnant Actress 2012 Shilpa Shetty Interviews – “Ever since I started working, I had forgotten what Sunday meant. I remember shooting non-stop for days together. But I think it’s the same for all actors. Sundays simply cease to exist in our lives. Everything moves around the shooting schedules, our holidays included.”
“But back then I never complained, because I would have a lot of fun on shooting. I think when you love your work, you really don’t mind letting go of your holidays as such.”
“Yes that was a luxury, but I’m making up for it now.”
