• Shiney thankful for the support

    18th March 2014

    Just recently it was reported how troubled Indian Star Shiney Ahuja has been struggling to find his feet in Bollywood. 

    Having enjoyed the cult of stardom in his initial years, Shiney's personal and professional life had hit rock-bottom when he was accused of rape by his domestic help. Ever since that incident, the last two years haven't been smooth for Shiney. 

    After successfully getting bail and getting over the trauma, Shiney tried to get new films. His mentors, the Bhatts, too distanced themselves from Shiney's professional needs as they claimed it would be risky to cast someone whose fate is hung by serious allegations and legal issues. 

    Nonetheless, life yet again smiled at him when filmmaker Anees Bazmee offered him a plum role in his upcoming multi-starrer film 'Welcome Back'

    Shiney who is delighted with the breakthrough, recently put his emotion in words. "Welcome Back! happened just like that. A few years ago, my life had changed in just two hours. It changed again, in two hours. Anees and Firoz have brought happiness back into my life," he said. 

    He also added that the stars from the film have been encouraging too. 

    "Anil Kapoor and I were on the same flight. He hugged me and said, Welcome back, listen, you gotta rock now. You need to start concentrating on your acting again." 

    "In Dubai, John Abraham and Nana Patekar have been friendly and Naseeruddin Shah hugged me so tightly that it said it all. Anees too is very encouraging. Everyone can't be demonstrative, but they are all trying to make me feel at home," he further added.

    Looks like it indeed is a 'Welcome Back' for this light eyed star!!!
