I’ve been hearing these rumors for a while now, but I didn’t want to believe them. But it seems it may be happening, after all! Our beloved Angoori Bhabhi, played beautifully by Shilpa Shinde has decided to quit Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai! Reportedly, the production house has blamed Shilpa for throwing tantrums while shooting and some monetary issues as the reasons for her exit.
Talking to a leading daily, Shilpa explained her side of the story:
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.
According to another statement by her, the schedule of the show kept her so busy, she couldn’t even see a doctor when she suffered from a severe throat infection. The actress is very upset with accusation of being labelled as unprofessional and has decided to take legal action against the production house.
Talking to IndiaForums, she said:
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
