Shilpa Shetty out of British film

Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty has lost her first British film after making high pay demands.

The 32-year-old actress was set to play the leading role in the romantic comedy film Quick, Slip Me A Bride, but disagreements regarding money have compelled the producers to find another leading star.

According to Renu Patel, producer of the 4 million pound film, Shilpa demanded 350,000 pounds and asked them to delay the project till next year.

"Shilpa agreed to do the film with us. Now we have been forced to go ahead without her because she wanted GBP350,000 and insisted half of this had to be paid before she even shot any scene," ContactMusic quoted Patel, as saying.

"To make things worse, she then tried to insist we delayed the film until next summer to give her time to pursue a music project instead. It would have made Shetty a lead in her first British-made film and given her the chance to scotch the idea she is merely a failing Bollywood actress," she added.
