Producer Shilpa Shetty plans to make only masala movies

Mumbai, July 19 (IANS) Actress-turned-producer Shilpa Shetty says her company S2 Productions will concentrate purely on making commercial movies.

"The Indian audience still does not accept socially relevant movies and prefers commercial cinema which provides light entertainment," said Shilpa, who has become an international celebrity after her historic win on Britain's reality show "Big Brother" in 2007.

"I am not here to incur losses by making socially relevant movies. Our company will concentrate purely on commercial cinema and I have no intention of making socially relevant movies," Shilpa told IANS in an interview.

Barring a few exceptions like "Taare Zameen Par", the audience has rejected most socially relevant movies, she said.
