Shilpa Shetty on Hungama 2 failure: 'Nikamma was supposed to be my comeback'

Shilpa Shetty will soon be seen in Sabbir Khan's action comedy Nikamma, in which she plays a superhero. The actress' most recent film was Hungama 2 (2021), which also marked her return to films after a 14-year absence. Shilpa has recently disclosed in an interview that Nikamma, not Hungama 2, was supposed to be her comeback film.


The Dhadkan (2000) actress stated she agreed to do Hungama 2 because she wanted to work with Priyadarshan and because she couldn't say no to co-producer Ratan Jain, who had previously produced her debut film Baazigar (1993). Shilpa, on the other hand, was dissatisfied with how her role was portrayed in the film, which received generally unfavourable reviews after its premiere on Disney+ Hotstar.

She said, "Hungama 2 was not my comeback. It was never supposed to be my first film. I did that film because I can never say no to Ratan Ji. He introduced me to the industry. Nikamma was the first film I was supposed to do. But then it got stuck, and also I always wanted to work with Priyan Sir. Anyway, by the time the film came out, it came out on OTT and I saw the film. And I felt that 'this was not my character.' It happened, but it's okay."

Nikamma is an official remake of Nani's Telugu film Middle-Class Abbayi (2017). On June 17, 2022, the film is set to hit theatres.
