Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty returns to the silver screen after a four-year hiatus with R. Sarath's Sino-Indian film "The Desire."

"I have taken a back seat from showbiz purely out of choice because I am really enjoying what I am doing. I've been there and done that," said Shilpa during the launch of her construction company's Web site

The 36-year-old actress, who married businessman Raj Kundra in 2009, took a break from cinema to focus on her business and personal life.

"I miss being on the silver screen but I have learnt to prioritize things and my marriage is obviously my first priority," she added.

In "The Desire," Shetty will play the lead opposite Chinese actor, Xia Yu.

The film will also feature Bollywood actors Anupam Kher, Jaya Prada, Sheetal Menon and Sachin Khedekar.

"The Desire" is a love story between Goutami (Shetty) and Jai Leang (Xia).
