Shilpa Shetty reveals her mom once called her ‘nikammi’ and ‘absolutely useless after seeing her exam result

Shilpa Shetty, whose next movie is named Nikamma, in a recent interaction, talked about when she was known as a ‘nikammi.’ The actress portrays a superhuman, Agni, in the action-comedy, which likewise features Abhimanyu Dassani and Shirley Setia. The movie follows Agni as she turns Abhimanyu’s ‘nikamma’ (lazy) character Siddharth into a responsible man.

Inquired as to whether she has at any point been called ‘nikammi’ by her dad Surendra Shetty or mother Sunanda Shetty, Shilpa said that it was her mother who used the term for her. Shilpa said that Sunanda lost her temper in the wake of seeing her prelims report and called her ‘absolutely worthless’ and ‘nikammi.’

In a recent interaction with ETimes, she said, “It happened to me when my mom saw my prelims report just before my SSC examination. I had scored some 48 percent, which was disgraceful. I was a volleyball player. I was more into extracurricular activities and I was selected for the Bombay zone as a volleyball player. But, when my mom saw my result she bawled for the first time. She said you’re going to be absolutely useless, worthless, and nikammi.”

Shilpa also revealed her response to her mom’s outburst. She said, “My aim in life at that time was to become a volleyball coach so I felt my life was set. But later, when I realised my mom was upset with my scores and me being a nikammi, I studied well for 10 days and scored a decent percentage.” All was well for Shilpa then as her mother was relieved.
