Putting forward their issues some producers would claim that their movies didn’t do well at the box office therefore they would only pay her half of what was initially agreed upon. “Life in a Metro” star said thanks to her appearances in songs and item numbers.

She explained how her appearances played a massive role in boosting her popularity and success, sometimes even more than her movies did. Her famous icon numbers included “Main Aai Hoon U.P. Bihar Lootne” from “School,” “Shut Up & Bounce” from “Dostana,” Anu Malik’s “Aila Re” alongside Sanjay Dutt and many more. Shilpa said, “I’ve had a long career with its fair share of ups and downs. I often wondered why I wasn’t offered bigger roles or films with renowned banners. But I owe a lot of my success to working in smaller films alongside prominent actors. I took on smaller roles, and regardless of whether my movies were hits or misses, my songs always became hits. It’s these songs that have kept me going.”
