Shamita ShettyI have a life beyond a film career: Shamita Shetty

Shamita Shetty says that she prefers to keep a positive attitude towards life despite her film career not going great guns.

"I am in the film industry because I am passionate of films. But, I have a life beyond a film career. A film career does not define me. There is a other side to my life. I am content with my personal life," Shamita said.

Shamita said besides having a secure family life, she is deep into yoga and painting.

She does not agree that one of the reasons of her career in the industry has not taken off because she has to live in the shadow of a more successful sister Shilpa Shetty .

"Shilpa is not just an actor, but my elder sister. I am very happy with her success. There are no comparisons between us. Our parents treat us as equals at home," she added.

Shamita said she was presently involved in the pre-production work of Shilpa's home production, which will go on floors in November.

"I am not doing any films because the work that has come to me was not good. I am looking for something interesting. Hopefully, things will work out in the coming months," she added.

Shamita said she would feel bad about not getting good offers. "Instead of cribbing that good work is not coming my way, I look at the positive side where I see no pressure from my parents to work for the sake of it. I have the freedom to choose and do what I want to," she said.

Shamita said she had learnt that one has to be mentally strong to survive in the industry. "My mother has instilled positive values in me and Shilpa," she added.

Shamita said she felt content that whatever work she has done so far was on her own terms. "My performance in the last film I did Zeher was appreciated," she added.

When asked about her role in Shilpa's home banner "S2 Global Productions," Shamita said she was helping out in whatever way she could.

"Both myself and Shilpa are creative people and our contribution would be creative in nature. We have brought on board some professionals as well. UTV will co-produce the film which is an action comedy to be directed by Manish Jha, with us," she added.

Shamita said that watching a film, being put together, was a different experience all together. "It took us six months to come out with an original script," she added.

She said only Shilpa will act in the first film that will come out of the "S2 Global Productions".

"Other cast is being finalised. But, they will be definitely big names. I may work in the second production. But, it is too early to say anything at this juncture," she added.

To a question on what genre of films attract her as an actress, Shamita said she did not want to restrict herself to any particular genre. "I would love to do a comedy film. I feel I can carry off intense roles easily," she added.
