For long it was in air that Shilpa Shetty was the first choice to play a part in the Hollywood Flick ‘The Pink Panther 2’, which now is being played by Aishwarya Rai. And now one of the initial emails from the casting agency ‘ILENE STARGER CASTING’ proves it.
Shilpa Shetty’s spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar confirmed:
Shilpa was indeed approached first for the ‘Pink Panther’. However, she decided not to do it. A recent story that has come in a popular tabloid yesterday is a lie. This is proved through the email which makes it clear that Shilpa Shetty was indeed approached two months ago for the role of Sophie in ‘The Panther’.
Justifying the reason why there was no announcement earlier in this regard, he says:
We are professional people and we deemed fit not to boast, as we decided not to do the film. This clarification only comes in the wake of this false and fake story which aims to mar Shilpa Shetty’s reputation.
Well, if Shetty is that professional then what is this fuss all about now?
