Shilpa Shetty says nothing wrong with no-pregnancy clause


Shilpa_ShettyActress Shilpa Shetty says that if a project is not delayed, there is nothing wrong with no-pregnancy clause for actresses.

“I don`t think there is anything wrong with the clause. At the end of the day, we all are here to work and a lot of money is riding on the actors,” Shilpa told reporters during the press conference of ‘Dishkiyaoon’.

“Yes, I can understand if the project goes on till four to five years, then it`s not acceptable. But if you sign a project for a year or so, then I think its fine. I personally feel there is nothing wrong with the (no) pregnancy clause,” said the actress, who has turned producer with ‘Dishkiyaoon’.

Whether no-pregnancy clause be included in an actress`s contract became a topic of discussion ever since the rumours of Vidya Balan`s pregnancy surfaced, although the actress has denied the reports.

Directed by Sanamjit Singh Talwar, ‘Dishkiyaaon’ features Sunny Deol and Harman Baweja in the lead roles. It is slated for a March 28 release.

Asked about her role as a producer, Shilpa said: “There is a lot of pressure on producers. I have to touch Sunny`s feet who has managed to produce so many films. So far, the experience has been great and I am still learning a lot of things.”

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old, who is on a break from acting, said she will take two more years to face the camera.

“I have always been connected to the industry. At the moment I am too busy as my son is too small. I will take two more years to face the camera,” said Shilpa, who is married to businessman Raj Kundra. Their son will turn two in May this year.
