Shilpa Shinde is the winner of the 11th season of Bigg Boss. After facing tough competition from first runner-up Hina Khan in the final round, Shilpa powered through and was rather emotional after winning this exhausting reality show. In an interview to IANS, the actress spoke about her future plans which definitely doesn’t include television. Her experience with the makers of Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai has marred her views on the Indian television industry.

I would rather explore the medium of films than television. After working for so many years, the way few people of the industry (referring to the producers of ‘Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai’) treated me, I am disheartened. I do not wish to work in the TV industry anymore.

Talking about her sexual harassment allegation against the show’s producer Sanjay Kohli, she elaborated on the toughest phase of her life, when asked if naming and shaming big people in the industry takes a toll on a woman’s career, she said –

Yes, it does. It is tough for an actress to raise her voice on sexual harassment because the chances are they will question your character, they will ruin your career and they will defeat you in the power game. So one has to be very strong to fight against these white collar mafias.

We hope she gets good work post her stint in Bigg Boss.
