Television actress, Shilpa Shinde, known for her role as ‘Angoori Bhabhi’ in &TV’s sitcom ‘Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain’ has sensationally quit the show.
Talking to reporters about her decision to leave the show, she said, “I have been mentally tortured by the channel and the production house. They have threatened to sabotage my career if I take up work on rival channels. Initially, Rashami Desai was finalised for the part; I was roped in when she opted out abruptly. I have stood by them during the crisis and was hoping they would reciprocate in my time of need. It has been a year and there is no tailor on the set. They couldn’t pay the dress designer and I had no choice but to use my own clothes, which I even stitch on the set. Being a fashion-conscious actress, I can’t be shabbily dressed on the show. As far as asking them to revise my money, it’s my right. The show has completed a year and I am due for a fee revision.”
She went further to add that she will be taking legal action against the channel for the way the issue has been handled.
I am extremely upset about the whole issue and especially with the fact that they have mentioned about me being unprofessional and one who throws tantrums. I have had a lot of issues but never did I crib about anything, but after such a statement, I am very upset and have stopped shooting. What is more disheartening is that no one supported me in this issue and commented back, not even my co-actors who know about me. I am now planning to take a legal action against them and will only come back to the show if they openly apologize to me for this defamation, she said.
Rashmi Desai is expected to replace Shinde in the hit television show. Meanwhile, Shinde is reportedly join Sony Entertainment Television Asia’s show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
