Post Celebrity Big Brother, Shilpa Shetty seems to be on a professional high. The tall and beautiful actress continues to make news, even though it's been more than a year since she stormed UK winning the reality show.

Now Shilpa, whose last release was Apne, surely seems to have jumped into the big league. The actress will be seen doing a 'special song' in Dharma Productions' Dostana starring Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles. This Karan Johar production, directed by Karan's erstwhile assistant Tarun Mansukhani is currently being shot in Miami. "Yes, Shilpa is currently shooting in Miami along with Abhishek and John for a really special song for the film Dostana. I wouldn't really call it an item number,” said Shilpa's publicist Dale Bhagwagar. “However, the song is indeed going to be one hell of a sensational chartbuster. Let me put it this way, if she won over the nation with her UP- Bihar song you can expect her to win a reasonable part of the world with this song."

So what else is Shilpa up to these days? "Shilpa would be starting work on her film The Man opposite Sunny Deol. It's a Vijeta films production and co-directed by Sunny Deol and Neeraj Pathak. Her role in the film is quite similar to what happened to her in real life [read the instant worldwide fame]. She would also be seen in the international flick Hanuman where she plays Sita. They are in talks with Keanu Reeves to play the role of Lord Ram"

What about her plans of getting into production? "Yes, Shilpa is starting her own production called S2 Global Production. The first thing that was made under S2 global Production was Shilpa's Yoga DVD, which mainly released in the UK & international market,” said Dale. “The first film under her banner is an action comedy to be directed by Manish Jha (Matrubhoomi, Anwar). It's a two heroine project with Shilpa playing one of the heroines. The second female lead would also be a very famous Bollywood actress. I can't reveal much now."

For all those who are eagerly waiting for Shilpa's Yoga DVD in India, there is good news on that front. "Yes, she is going to release her Yoga DVD in India. Shemaroo has bought the rights at an astronomical price. Shilpa will be dubbing for it in Hindi when she returns from Miami,” he added. “The DVD got a fabulous response in the UK. It was a sell-out among the non-fiction DVD charts. So we are looking forward to its release in India."

Well, after speaking to her publicist all we can say is that Shilpa surely has her plate full and the next few months are bonanza time for her die-hard fans.
