Shilpa Shinde aka Angoori Bhabhi has been in the headlines for sometime now... No doubt, the lady has given the character life, and has been one of the pillars in the success story of & TV’s popular show, Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai (Edit II).
However, all that seems to be a bad past that Shilpa wants to forget... In a talk with Tellychakkar.com, she cleared her stand, and spoke at length about the problems she has faced at the hands of the co-artists, producer and channel personnels.
She claimed, “I am very upset that I have been working with such shamless people for the past one year. Yes, I was destined to do this role, and I have proved what I can do to the masses as well as to all the concerned people holding big positions. I can clearly say that my stint as Angoori Bhabhi has ended.”
Going on, Shilpa did not mince words expressing her anger at the other three lead artistes of the show, Saumya Tandon, Rohitashv Gaur and Aasif Sheikh. “They simply don’t have the guts to speak the truth. They knew all along that I am being framed with allegations of throwing tantrums. But none of them spoke. I am really upset at their behaviour. I will never share screen space with these three actors. Understood, they have always suffered from a complex that I steal the limelight. They have often felt dissatisfied, with people going gaga about Angoori Bhabhi and her takiya kalam, ‘Sahi Pakde’... I am cent percent sure that they will be extremely happy now, as they do not have to share screen with Shilpa. Guess it is now time for them to prove their worth (smiles).”
When asked about rumours doing rounds of her being part of The Kapil Sharma Show, she averred, “Haha, yes, as they have spread rumours, I am part of it. But not as bua, but as dadi (gives out a sarcastic smile).”
Speaking about the Producer Benaifer Kohli, Shilpa further stated, “I just do not want to speak about her. She has no respect to talk to actors. And I very well know how to get my money back. You will not believe, I had a throat infection few months back, and the infection was so bad that I had lost my voice. If you think of it, there were few episodes too wherein it was shown that Angoori has lost her voice. My condition was so bad. And the effect of antibiotics on me had such a diverse effect that I happened to oversleep one morning, thus reporting late for shoot. In any case, our scenes do not come on time, and we are made to wait for three hours everyday. But unfortunately, the scenes had arrived on the day I was late, and the other actors complained about me to the Producer. But the fact was that we had different scenes and no actor was waiting for me. And you will not believe it if I say, Benaifer abused me on the set before everyone. I could not believe that someone could have talked to me like that. She even went to CINTAA after this incident to lodge a complaint against my late coming.”
“I tell the same people, who are spreading rumours about my tantrum throwing, to be happy now since I am out of the project. Why do they want to settle things midway? In fact, the Producer has been calling me to meet her for a settlement at the JW Marriot. ‘Bolte hai koi beech ka raasta doondte hai’... Why do they want me now if I have been so troublesome to them,” questioned Shilpa.
Before concluding her talk, Shilpa did vehemently tell that she has lodged a complaint with the CINTAA for defamation. “I am waiting for a reply from CINTAA”, declared Shilpa.
You will certainly be missed in the show, Shilpa!!
