Former ‘Bigg Boss 14’ contestant Shefali Jariwala, popularly referred to as ‘Kaanta laga’ woman, feels that the occasion business has been struggling for the previous two years because of the international outbreak of Covid-19. She says its after-effects are slashing down the costs for reside reveals.
Shefali tells IANS: “Lot of people at the backend from event managers to dancers to musicians are really suffering. We’re trying to help each other out as much as possible and whichever few events that I am doing we have already slashed our prices by over fifty per cent so that my staff can keep working. It’s alright if we earn a little less money, but it is very important for these people to earn.”
Due to the pandemic and the lockdown, reside reveals and shootings have hit the pause button. Thus Shefali is being picky about her work.
“There is an apprehension in deciding what to do and what not to do. But earlier this year I finished shooting for a short film. I can’t talk much about it because the official announcements will be made soon. I am expecting it to be released in the next couple of weeks.”
Shefali Jariwala provides: “Also I have signed a lot of OTT and will be shooting in the month of August. We are waiting for travel restrictions to be lifted and will get on with the shoot.”
Currently, the 38-year-old actress, who’s married to actor Parag Tyagi, is ready to get her second jab as she is wanting ahead to travelling.
“I have got my first shot of the vaccine and once I get my second shot, travelling will be much easier,” shares Shefali Jariwala.
Shefali is understood for her glamorous picture particularly after the recognition of the album ‘Kaanta laga’. But in actuality she prefers to be easy and carefree.
“I belong to a simple middle-class Gujarati family and I am still that simple person. You can find me wearing pyjamas and probably with oil in my hair and just lazing around at home.”
