Shilpa Shetty, "Oh I'm totally in awe of Sridevi. She is so very beautiful and has such a terrific personality. I do envy her, especially her attractive eyes. Like Sridevi, I'm also tall and that feels real good."
Shilpa Shetty, "Sridevi is my Inspiration."
Rediff; You reminded me of Sridevi in the film [Rishtey].
Shilpa Shetty: You are kidding, right? My God, that's the best compliment anyone can give me. Sridevi is my biggest inspiration. She is my favourite actress. I have grown up watching her films.
Her comic timing was amazing. Remember Chaalbaaz? If I can achieve even one-fourth of her comic timing, I consider myself very lucky.
From Rediff, Shilpa Shetty Interview.
Shilpa Shetty, "Sridevi had a quality that made her dancing stand out from everyone else. That's basically the reason she is one of our country's dancing divas..."

Bollywood beauties Sridevi and Shilpa Shetty needn't lose heart that they lost in the competition in getting a place at Madame Tussaud's to the ethereal Aishwarya.
Sculptors, who have carved wax mannequins at the London's famous wax museum, have been hired by an upmarket jeweller of New Delhi to carve out mannequins of Sridevi and Shilpa. This new experiment will definitely raise eyebrows and interest in India and the jewellery showroom is bound to get publicity.
The wax mannequins are ready and will arrive any moment to New Delhi from London. A showroom employee reveals that the mannequins will be kept in an air-conditioned room so that they do not melt.
As it appears obviously, placing wax mannequins of film stars in shops are mere gimmicks to attract customers, but thanks to the gimmick, India gets its first wax mannequins of its favorite matinee idols.
