Dharmesh Darshan’s romantic drama Dhadkan is counted among one of Shilpa Shetty’s best performances. It had a love triangle between its lead characters Anjali (Shilpa), Ram (Akshay Kumar) and Dev (Suneil Shetty) at the centre of its plot. The film’s songs “Dil Ne Yeh Kaha Hain Dil Se”, “Tum Dil Ki Dhadkan Mein”, “Dulhe Ka Sehra”, “Na Na Karte Pyar” and others are still loved by the audience.

Rishtey, directed by Indra Kumar, is a family drama where a father is ready to go to any lengths to keep his son with him, and a mother is desperate to reunite with her son who was taken away from her just after he was born. Though the film had a cliched, predictable plot, it was Shilpa Shetty who made it interesting with her comic timing and her brilliant performance.
Streaming on: Amazon Prime Video

She struggles to survive in a society where everyone judges her because of her disease until a lawyer, played by Abhishek Bachchan, comes to her rescue. Director Revathi excelled in dealing with a sensitive subject and spread awareness about stigmas and misconceptions around AIDS/HIV without being preachy.
