Shamita Shetty: ‘I am in my happy space when dancing’

The actor talks about making her music video debut in Teri Maa and her upcoming international project The Tenant

Published: 23rd August 2019

Shamita Shetty made a comeback in the recent Punjabi music video, ‘Teri Maa’, directed by her brother-in-law Raj Kundra. The song is composed by B Praak and voiced by Roop Sidhu and Dolly Sidhu. This is the first time Shamita has appeared in a music video. “Raj has his own music label (Muzik One Records) and they wanted me to be a part of their new track. I heard the song and loved it. I don’t fully understand Punjabi but when they explained the lyrics to me, I thought it was really cute,” Shamita said. 

Ever since her debut role in Mohabbatein (2000), Shamita has been passionate about dancing. For Teri Maa, the actor had been given only a few hours for rehearsals. “We shot the entire song in like a day. It was hectic but when I am in front of the camera, I forget everything. I am in my own happy space when I am dancing,” she shared. “Ranju (Varghese), the choreographer, has done a great job. The hook step he put in the song was fun.” 

Shamita was seen in Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 9 earlier this year. Her upcoming appearance is in The Tenant, an international project directed by Sushrut Jain. The film revolves around a woman, played by Shamita, dealing with her mysterious past. “I have finished shooting for The Tenant. It should release by early next year.” Shamita said. “It’s the journey of a girl who enters a conservative society. Nobody knows her past or where she comes from. The film addresses a lot of hypocrisy that exist in our society. The characters and subject are very real. We shot the film in Mumbai in an actual housing society. I am really excited for this one to release.”
