Her performance as a child artiste was sensational and Shamili was expected to become a heroine. Though she did debut with Siddharth's Oye, the film did not do well at the box office and she did not push her luck any further. She then flew off to Canada and did a course in acting there.
Now, she is back and much to the surprise of many is back to acting in films. At the time of Oye, many felt she was too chubby for films and many did not see a bright future for her. However, on her return, Shamili has managed to get quite a few films on hand.
In Kannada, she has been signed by KS Ravi Kumar and in Tamil, it is said that Vishal is quite keen on working with her. She has also signed a film with Prabhu's son Venkat Prabhu.
So looks like she is all set for her third innings in the industry.
