I didn’t want to settle down at that time, but everyone around me felt it was the right age to get married. Subsequently, things didn’t work out between Romit and me, and the relationship fell apart. After my engagement broke off, I did get into another relationship, but that was a very bad experience. Maine apne kaan pakad liye that I would steer away from relationships. I’ve realized that I am happy being single. I can’t be answerable to anyone. When I am working, and if someone asks me where I am going or what I am doing, I can’t keep answering him.”

I don't have a Twitter account and there are several fake IDs impersonating my name...Requesting media that don't publish news on the basis of fake tweets.”

I don't have a Twitter account and there are several fake IDs impersonating my name...Requesting media that don't publish news on the basis of fake tweets.

The actress, who ruled the season, has already made her digital debut with Paurashpur and is gaining a lot of appreciation for her new avatar. Shilpa is very happy with the way her fans are appreciating her work and is enjoying life to the fullest. Amid this, the one thing that seems to be happening constantly is Bigg Boss 14 contestant Vikas Gupta bringing up her name on the show again and again. Going by the history between Vikas and Shilpa, their tiff hasn’t been a hidden secret for anyone. The two have been at loggerheads for quite some time.

For me who is he? Don’t even talk about him. Seriously, I don’t want to because for this also he will try to gain sympathy.” During season 11 of the reality show, we all saw their ugly fights and how things got out of hand between them.

She further said that it looks like she was running Bigg Boss 14. Her comment came after Vikas Gupta recently took her name and said that Arshi Khan is trying to be the next Shilpa Shinde.

It is worth mentioning here that Shilpa became a household name for her role of Angoori Bhabhi in Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain. The actress had to leave the show and she claimed that she was being mentally harassed by the producers of the show. She also blamed Vikas Gupta who was a part of the production team for the same. Currently, she is making it to the headlines for her digital debut in Paurushpur. The show also stars Shaheer Sheikh, Milind Soman, and Annu Kapoor in pivotal roles.

Shilpa Shinde, who won Bigg Boss 11, has recently made headlines after she decided to quit Gangs of Filmistan, midway after claiming production issues. She has reiterated that she does not want to work with Sunil Grover and that she feels cheated. We reached out to Shilpa to understand where her problem lies wherein she mentioned why she wasn't comfortable working with Sunil and accused the producers of using her name for publicity but instead of highlighting her talent, only focused on using her as a prop, an eye candy. Over to her:

Initially, when Neeti Simoes (producer) had called me for the show, I had asked categorically if Sunil Grover is a part of the show and they had assured me that he is busy with other projects, hence he isn't. So I said, let's do Masti on the show. Then they apprised me of the concept and the artists who will be coming on board as well. I was very happy with it. 

Later, I got to know from the outside that Sunil is doing the show. I asked the producers then and they told me that he is doing the show and that's when I  confronted them and said that I had made it clear that I did not want to work with Sunil Ji as I have worked with him before and he doesn't let anyone else get the limelight. I cannot work with him. In the previous show we did together for Jio, I was used as eye candy. But it was right after Bigg Boss and hence I did not want to take anything very serious too and Reliance paid well, I was a fan of Sunil Ji, so I did it. But, not now. Then, I was told that I would be doing a different gag and that he won't be part of it. I trusted them and started working. 

We were sent the script by mail initially but then the entire script was changed and altered. We were shooting from morning 8 AM to 11 PM, what is this? When the promo was shot, those two days all procedures and SOPs were followed and there were people from the channel on sets but once the shooting started, nothing was there. I caught a cold and cough in two days and my boy had a headache, fever, and cold and I asked him to take a rest. Later, the last straw for me was when Sunil Ji joined us in gag as well. The gag was altered, where roles were changed and everyone else was sidelined. Every actor on the set is so good. I saw Upasana (Singh) Ji was made to be in a scene of 10 pages, where she had only two dialogues. It is so annoying to see that. 

I don't care and told everyone to tell her to not contact me because I don't know what I will do. I don't want to see them again after they used me. When I knew that Sunil Grover has joined the gag, I knew I was done there. He has treated me like a junior artist. You should see the telecast to see how much of a role I have. Sunil Ji just needs a prop, a beautiful girl standing beside them and that is why they used me.

Even when I was doing the Jio show, I had no proper scene, I was simply used. They got me on board because of my popularity post-Bigg Boss. They did one song sequence with me. They wanted to shoot more such dances with me but Sunil Ji forced his comedy into it and ruined it. He is a very complex person, he is very insecure. He feels only he can do comedy, he is the comedy king.

Bigg Boss 13 has been one roller coaster ride and the first two weeks have been one that sees multiple ups and downs. Something that did catch everyone's attention was how Devoleena Bhattacharjee broke down after a fight inside the kitchen when Sidharth Shukla and others questioned them, and eventually, that lead to an argument. Talking about that, Shilpa Shinde, who has been loved for all that she did during Bigg Boss 11, opened up.

Shilpa was made aware of all the digs she Devoleena took at her while she was in the house, and talking about that, she said how she had a good laugh when fans showed it to her. She further added how she has always said that cooking for so many people is not easy, and she did it not for the cameras but with a lot of love. She said how there were many others who made fun of her, and she hopes now Devoleena can understand everything that goes into the cooking.

Shilpa Shinde earlier played the role of Angoori Bhabi on the show Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain! However, a few years ago, she was replaced by Shubhangi Atre as Angoori Bhabi. As the show is one of the most popular TV shows, it was a kind of risk to replace the main lead. However, within a few weeks, Shubhangi won the viewers' hearts and the audience accepted her. 

This was the second time Shubhangi replaced Shilpa. Earlier, Atre replaced her in the show Chidiya Ghar. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Shubhangi Atre said that it was just a coincidence and she didn't want to replace Shilpa for the second time.

Navjot Singh Sidhu landed in trouble for his statements over the Pulwama terrorist attack which happened on February 14. Sidhu had said, "For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual? It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly.

Shilpa Shinde came out in support of Navjot Singh Sidhu. While talking to IWMBuzz, the actress turned politician said, "I am totally against the new phenomenon of banning anyone whose views you don’t concur with. Sadly, CINTAA and other industry bodies are equally complicit in this. Everyone has the right to occupation; you can’t deny me the right to earn my livelihood. In the same vein, I also bat for the rights of Pakistani artists to work in Bollywood, purely on the basis of talent. I have been the victim of this ban culture, so know what’s wrong with it."

As Shilpa Shinde is supporting Navjot Singh Sidhu, she has been receiving a lot of backlash and even rape threats online. About the same, she said that she is going to take legal action. The actress also added that it is high time that the authorities crackdown on such people who also attack other women and several journalists.
