'Got thrown out of films without reason'

Mumbai: Actor-entrepreneur Shilpa Shetty Kundra says her journey in the Hindi film industry was not an easy ride as producers threw her out of their films without giving any reasons.

In a post shared on the official Humans of Bombay Instagram page, Shilpa, who made her debut in Bollywood with Baazigar in 1993, opened up about her journey and struggles she faced in the Hindi film industry.

Shilpa said it was a "great opportunity" to step out of her comfort zone and that the photographs came out really well, opening up the doors of modelling for her.

"I reached a point where after a few films my career hit a lull. I tried hard but it always felt like I was lagging behind. It's not easy to be celebrated one moment and ignored the next. I remember there were producers, who without any reason, threw me out of their films," recollected the actor.

She decided to reinvent her herself and hence entered the reality TV show 'Celebrity Big Brother 5', which ended up leaving a "huge impact".

"I was publicly bullied and discriminated against just because of the country I belonged to. It wasn't easy – I was all by myself in that house! But I kept me going."
