Shilpa Shetty 'excited' about Shamita's comeback


While Shilpa is looking forward to see her lil sister on Jhalaj Dikhhla Ja 8, the former has even given some advice to the latter. Read on to know what…

Actress Shilpa Shetty is excited about her sister Shamita's small screen debut as a contestant on the eighth season of reality dance show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa".

After taking a sabbatical from acting to start a career in interior designing in 2011, Shamita Shetty is returning to the limelight as a contestant in the upcoming eighth season of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. Her elder sister Shilpa Shetty is "excited" about her comeback. Actress-entrepreneur Shilpa, whose career got a new lease of life after she was announced the winner of British reality TV series Celebrity Big Brother 5 in 2007, hopes the small screen proves lucky for her sister as well.

Shamita, who was last seen in "Cash", took a sabbatical from acting to start a career in interior designing in 2011. The "Life In a Metro" actress, who served as a judge on a popular dance reality show, said such shows are not as simple as they look. "It's a very difficult show… I have been on the judging panel for these reality programmes and it's very easy to just sit and judge. But the amount of work performers put in and the effort that goes into doing a dance routine is far more challenging," she said

Shamita, who was last seen as a contestant on "Bigg Boss 3", will be joined by celebrities like Raftaar, Vivian Dsena, Radhika Madan, Kavita Kaushik, Sanaya Irani, Deepika Samson, Ashish Chowdhry, Mohit Malik, Scarlett Mellish Wilson and Faisal Khan on the eight season of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa".

This time, the show will be judged by actor Shahid Kapoor and ace choreographer Ganesh Hegde. The other names of the judging panel are yet to be announced.

The show is expected to go on air on Colors in July.
