Shilpa Shetty will be judging the sixth season of the celebrity dance reality show Nach Baliye for the second time, along with director Sajid Khan and choreographer Terence Lewis.

She gives us a peek into the new season of the show, the new film that she's producing and tells us why she does not want to send her toddler son to a play school.

You are judging Nach Baliye again and with the same co-judges.

It feels like it has just got over, though it got over six months ago. It is a new season with new contestants -- and a thinner version of me!

It takes time to reduce weight after a baby. I am back to my old weight now.

I am so happy that the three of us are back. We respect each other’s opinions. It is great fun to be doing the show again.

Can we expect more dancing from you this season?

Sajid and Terence tease me saying that I have become a contestant.

I miss dancing and miss being part of this whole madness, though when I look at my child, I don’t miss it.

So this works well as it is a TV show and it lets me connect with my fans.

This season is said to be more about romance and passion.

Yes. When we talk about passion, it does not mean anything vulgar.

Passion is a part of every marriage, every relationship and romance. If you remove romance, there is no fun.

What are you going to wear this season?

Last time I did both Indian and western but this time I am going completely Indian.

I want to experiment with different styles of wearing a sari.

I am here to entertain people and if my clothes entertain them, I am more than happy.

I will make my clothes more entertaining. I have the same stylist, Nandita Mahtani.

Tell us about the film you are producing.

It is a full-on masala entertainer on the underworld. Imagine Shilpa Shetty making a film on the Mumbai underworld, it sounds bizarre!

But I loved the script. It is the story of a guy called Vicky Kartoos who wants to make it as a gangster.

It is an emotional story too. Sunny Deol is in the film and I am happy that he is working with us. We showed him the look of the film and he liked it.

We are introducing a new girl, Ayesha Khanna. We ended up with her after 65 screen tests for the heroine.

Is the film based on any real incident or person?

I can’t comment on that. It is an interesting film and it has good dialogues.

The first teaser poster is good, the poster line is also good, the lines are filmi. I am looking forward to the film.

Will you make a special appearance in the film?

Let me keep you in suspense about that.

Is it clashing with Thuppakki?

No, we are coming with Ragini MMS 2 on January 10.

I would be worried if an action film had got released at the same time, but ours is an action entertainer and Ragini MMS 2 is a horror film and there is space for every film.

'I hate the idea of sending my son to the playschool at such a young age'

Do you miss acting?

I am not away from it. I make my presence felt through endorsements and television shows. I do it all happily.

My son takes all my attention and there is no time to miss it as there is so much happening in my life these days.

Every day he is saying something new, he is doing something crazy. Now he has got this obsession with the beach. All he wants is to go to the beach.

Every day is a new thing, and I don’t want to miss any single moment with him. I do a few things for creative satisfaction.

And now you will be hunting for a play school?

I hate the idea of sending him to the playschool at such a young age. Now everything is such a big deal, we complicate our lives.

We went to a normal convent school down the road, but today choosing a school is a big deal. I am hunting and checking for the best school.
