Shilpa Anand, the gorgeous Riddhima of Star One’s Dill Mill Gayye is passionate about computers. Wondering why? Well, Shilpa before taking to modeling was a Software Developer and was working in a Software Firm. “Yes, I was working as a software developer for few months; modeling was always a hobby for me, but then, I thought of taking up modeling assignments for a profession”, says Shilpa.

Apart from being a successful model, Shilpa has done over 50 ads. Shilpa is also fond of horse riding. Says the model turned actress, “Horse riding is a very passionate sport to be involved in. When I was in USA, I used to ride a lot. But now, with a full-fledged TV career, I am not able to devote much time to horse riding”.

So what is Shilpa passionate about these days? “I love to listen to music; whenever I want to take it easy after a strenuous shooting schedule, I want music for my ears. So Music is a passion which is more of a stress buster for me”, says Shilpa. “I love to surf net and whenever I am free, I keep in touch with my friends thro’ chat”, adds the actress.

Many stars take to the small screen first, and then make their way to the big screen. But for Shilpa, it is the other way round, as the ravishing actress has run around trees in few Kannada as well as Telugu films. A lesser known fact is that, Shilpa happens to be the sister of the very popular and successful actress of the South, Sakshi Shivanand. “I had a great passion to work in films, have done films in Telugu and Kannada. I have also worked in a Hindi film ‘Ikraar By Chance’. When I entered films, my sister had already made it big there; my mother who used to accompany my sister and stay with her down south, advised me to take up something, where she need not accompany me.(laughs) So when I got an offer for Dill Mill Gayye, I grabbed it with both hands”, says Shilpa with a smile on her face.

Shooting schedules can be really stressful, so how does Shilpa cope up with all this? What is it that acts as a stress buster to you? “I do breathing exercises in the morning; also try few chanting techniques and meditation. This gives me a relaxed feeling. I also take to jogging and swimming after a hard day’s work. I guess these are good ways of being healthy in mind and heart”, says the fitness freak, Shilpa as she signs off.
