Shilpa Shetty unrecognisable in throwback picture with Shah Rukh Khan in Bollywood debut 30 years ago | The Sun

ACTRESS Shilpa Shetty stunned fans as she appeared alongside her first co-star Shah Rukh Khan in a picture taken in the 90s.

The star – who is gearing up for the release of her new film "Sukhee" -is the picture of youth and radiance in the tantalizing throwback shot.

Shah – also in the picture – starred with Shilpa in her first ever movie "Baazigar" and she partly credits him for her success in Bollywood.

She told ndtv: "He has helped me a lot, I couldn't speak Hindi nor was I a good actor.

"So during that process, I learned a lot from Shah Rukh Khan."

She also described him as having " the utmost patience" and said he taught her "how to face the camera".

Shilpa describes these moments from her youth as “Sukhee moments" as she recognises similarities between her younger self and the character she plays in her new film.

This comes as the 48-year-old prepares for the release of the new movie on September 22.

The 48-year-old actress has recently marked 30 years in the film industry and said to  Zoom Entertainment:

"Today look at me I am doing the biggest series, I have just finished filming a movie, I am doing a multilingual movie, I have nothing to complain about.

Although Shilpa has mainly appeared on screen in India she became famous in the UK for an explosive row during her stint on Celebrity Big Brother.

The row – which included racist comments directed at Shilpa – was so shocking that it led to Ofcom complaints soaring to more than 40,000.

Despite the comments, her Big Brother appearance wasn't all bad as she ended up being crowned the winner and walking away with £100,000.
