The one thing that often plays a major part in a person’s career is luck. Yes, hard work and determination are the driving factors but one just cannot deny that sometimes having lady luck on your side does help a lot.  More specifically, if we talk about showbiz world, nepotism does exist, but this only makes it easier for them to step into the industry, rest fortune plays a major role.

One such example is of Shamita Shetty, the Sharara Sharara girl. Apart from her iconic song, she couldn’t taste much success at the box office. Recently, in an interview, she revealed various things about her personal and professional life. She talked at length about having suffered a lot in her relationship with actor-producer Uday Chopra.

She was through a lot of ups and downs after her breakup both personally and professionally too. Speaking about her troubles she said, “It took me three years to understand my true strength. During that phase, I was not working. I was refusing the work coming my way and many people thought that I was either not interested, or that I was too arrogant and selective. However, the real reason was that I didn’t find anything interesting.”

She also revealed how it felt being compared to her elder sister Shilpa Shetty all the time despite her supportive role in Shamita’s life. “Even today, many people identify me as Shilpa’s sister, but I have made peace with it. Sometimes, they even call me Shilpa, because I resemble her a bit. I don’t feel offended because at the end of the day, she is someone I aspire to be. Initially, I didn’t understand the comparisons because we are two different individuals and can’t be expected to achieve the same in life. Now, it doesn’t affect me at all,” added Shamita.

Adding further, she shared, “I’m lucky to be compared to someone who is respected for what she does and for the person she is. I am proud of that. Sometimes, there are comments on social media about how I’m being taken care of by my sister and brother-in-law, and how I have such an easy life. Let me make it clear that I take care of myself.”
