Shamita Shetty’s Movies
Shamita Shetty was part of a large star cast in her debut Mohabbatein in 2000, which did a good job commercially. She shook a leg to Chori Pe Chori in Saathiya (2000) and Sharara Sharara in Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai (2002).
In 2005, both sisters teamed up in Fareb. She played a cop in Zeher with Emraan Hashmi and saw success. Cash (2007) didn’t do good business. She looked South and landed a role in Naan Aval Adhu with heartthrob Madhavan.
It remains to be seen if she will reach the heights of success that Shilpa Shetty is currently enjoying.
