Shetty made her screen debut in the thriller Baazigar (1993) which garnered her two Filmfare Awards nominations, including one for Best Supporting Actress. She followed it with a leading role in the highly successful action comedy Main Khiladi Tu Anari (1994) in which she played dual roles.
But the landmark film happened to be Dhadkan. The on-screen love triangle between actors Suniel Shetty, Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty made director Dharmesh Darshan’s film, Dhadkan, a hit at the box office
Shilpa Shetty is also known for her superb dancing skills. And these two were the break out songs for her that set our screens ablaze
1. "Main Aayi Hoon UP Bihar Lootne!"
In the movie "Shool," Shetty did a dance number which went on to become one of biggest hits of the year—and a pop culture classic! The music was composed by Shankar, Ehsaan, and Loy, sung by Sapna Awasthi.
2. Shut up and Bounce!
When Shetty says “Shut up and bounce!” it's got a charm of its own! In the hit film "Dostana," starring Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham, and Abhishek Bachchan, Shetty flashed her hot bod in this item number. The song is sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and music composed by hit makers Shekhar Ravjiani and Vishal Dadlani
On her birthday her husband Raj Kundra posted a video, comprising some adorable pictures of himself with the birthday girl as Frankie Valli's Can't Take My Eyes Off You played in the backdrop. He accompanied the video with an equally cute note for Shilpa Shetty, who turned 45-years-old on Monday. Raj Kundra wrote: "To my darling wife, you are that woman who transformed my imperfections into perfections, with your love. Just seeing you smile lights up the darkest of days and makes it all worth it. You are not just the mother of my children, but the queen of my life and heart. I love you beyond words. Happy Birthday, my jaan."

Her sister Shamita Shetty also shared an Instagram post. She referred to Shilpa as "Munki" (her nickname) and wrote: "Sisters are like branches on a tree, they grow in different directions, yet their roots remain as one. They help you find important things you've lost like your smiles, your hopes and your courage. Thank you for always helping me find mine when things get tough. You are my anchor, my heart, my soul and I love u so much. Thank you Munki for always having my back and know this, there would be no meaning to my life without you. Happy birthday, my darling."
