New Delhi Bollywood actress Shamita Shetty has been away from the big screen for many years. Shamita made her Bollywood debut in 2000 with Yash Raj banner film Mohabbatein 20 years ago. Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai were the lead actors in this film. However, Shamita was paired with Uday Chopra in the film. The film was a big screen hit, but did you know that Shamita had rejected a film for ‘Mohabbatein’ which was later nominated for an Oscar. The film received 8 National Awards, 8 Filmfare Awards and 8 Screen Awards. That film was Aamir Khan’s iconic film Lagaan.
Yes, Shamita refused Lagaan to work in ‘Mohabbatein’ at that time. This was revealed by Shamita’s sister Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty. Shilpa has talked about this in Neha Dhupia’s show ‘No Filter Neha’. Shilpa revealed that, ‘Shamita was offered both films (Lagaan and Mohabbatein) at the same time. Out of both, Shamita had to choose one film and she chose’ Mohabbatein ‘. Later that film was given to Gracie Singh. However Shamita should have no regrets about it ‘.
