Shilpa said she was excited to start a new phase of her life in the late 2000s and had decided she won't work for some time when she has children. ''Soon after, I had Viaan. I had decided when I would have my first child, I would dedicate all my time to the baby. I was told the first seven years of a child is extremely important, they are highly impressionable. So I made that time. My family was, is and will continue to be my first priority.'' The actor, whose film credits include ''Dhadkan'', ''Phir Milenge'' and ''Dus'', said she now has carefully designed shooting schedules. ''That's why it has taken me 14 years to say yes (to a film). My son is now nine, I feel he doesn't need me as much. My daughter does. But I'm thankful to be in a position to say yes to only those few things that I really want to do and be in a position to balance my personal and professional life,'' she added. ''Hungama 2'' also stars Paresh Rawal, Meezaan, and Pranitha Subhash.
