Amidst a lot of drama, it is now official that Shilpa Shinde quit ‘Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai’.
The lead actress Shilpa Shinde aka Angoori Bhabhi has quit the show for which she was so much loved. Shilpa Shinde quit ‘Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai’ claiming mental torture and a possible threat to her career. She even accused the show’s producer Benaifer Kohli of being a “terror on sets”.
Shilpa has decided to take legal action against the makers of show. This is what 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. 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.”
Shilpa claims that she was up for a pay revision after the show completed a year but it was refused to her. She also said that she was forced to shoot even when unwell. “They never gave me any off. I underwent a surgery for appendix, but these people called me within three days. I have a migraine problem. I even worked when I suffered from throat infection. I was on antibiotics but I never had them as I used to feel sleepy after taking medicines. I did everything for the show but this is what I am getting in return.”
Shilpa also claims that there was favoritism as Saumya Tandon was given preference over her. On the other hand, the producer Benaifer slammed Shilpa’s accusations saying “Shilpa was signed for a certain amount on the condition that she won’t ask for a raise. But within the first year, she asked for a raise twice and was given on both occasions. So what is she talking about? She finally said that if we don’t raise her fee a third time, she will stop coming on the sets under the pretext of a migraine. And see, that’s what she’s doing.”
Infact, the makers have sent a legal notice to Shilpa as she is the one to repeatedly breach the contract and will take necessary actions against her as instructed by their team of lawyers.
Prior to all this, Shilpa has bright plans for her future. She is all set to join “The Kapil Sharma Show” which will go on air soon. She confirmed the new saying “I am working with Kapil Sharma. The show is more than a film for me. My fans will be very happy to see me on the show as my character will be comic, yet different from what I have done before.”
Hopefully the truth of the matter will come out soon, but we are sure going to miss Angoori Bhabhi on the show!
