Hope TV proves lucky for Shamita too: Shilpa Shetty

New Delhi, Jun 25: Indian actress Shilpa Shetty is excited about her sister Shamita's small screen debut as a contestant on the eighth season of reality dance show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa".

The 40-year-old actress, whose career got a new lease of life after she was crowned the winner of British reality TV series "Celebrity Big Brother 5" in 2007, hopes the small screen proves lucky for her sister as well.

"I am so excited. TV has been lucky for me and I really hope that it proves lucky for her as well," Shilpa said.

Asked if she would like to dole out any tips to the "Mohabbatein" actress, Shilpa said, "I would ask her to just dance her heart out." 

Shamita, who was last seen in "Cash", took a sabbatical from acting to start a career in interior designing in 2011.

The "Life In a Metro" actress, who served as a judge on a popular dance reality show, said such shows are not as simple as they look.

"It's a very difficult show... I have been on the judging panel for these reality programmes and it's very easy to just sit and judge. But the amount of work performers put in and the effort that goes into doing a dance routine is far more challenging," she said.

This time "Jhalak" will be judged by actor Shahid Kapoor, who has replaced show's regular Madhuri Dixit. The other names of the judging panel are yet to be announced.
