Shilpa Shetty opts out of British film
Bollywood star and Celebrity Big Brother winner Shilpa Shetty has reportedly opted out of a British film.
According to recent reports Shilpa lost her British comedy flick 'Quick, Slip Me A Bride' when she quoted a price too high for the makers.
A website quoted the producer Renu Patel saying, "Shilpa agreed to film with us. Now we have been forced to go ahead without her because she wanted 350,000 pounds and insisted half of this had to be paid before she even shot any scene."
Reportedly, Shilpa had also asked them to postpone the shoot till next year, which the producer was not willing to do.
Shilpa's spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar admitted that she did quote her price. " Shilpa asks for what she deserves and she even gets what she deserves. Having said that, money is not always the criteria why an assignment doesn't work out. There could be a difference of opinion about the role or a problem with dates."
Meanwhile, Shilpa is filming a yoga DVD and plans to market it overseas later this year, Bhagwagar said Thursday.
The two-hour yoga DVD is currently being filmed by Shetty's production house in Kerala, said Bhagwagar.
"Shilpa practices yoga every day and she believes it should be a way of life for everyone," said Bhagwagar.
"Yoga has become a fashion statement in the West, but Shilpa wants to educate people about the original form of yoga, the ashtanga yoga, with the right techniques and breathing exercises."
Shilpa underwent intensive training this month in preparation to ensure she perfected the "asanas" or postures for the DVD, which will initially be sold in Britain and Dubai.
"Shilpa will give details about how to stay trim and fit with a normal diet," said Bhagwagar.
"She will talk about what foods to avoid and how she maintains her figure since she is known to have the best figure in Bollywood."
