Shilpa Shinde who, rose to fame with TV serial Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai, was one of the favourite contestants on the controversial reality show Bigg Boss 11. Shilpa was called with the tag ‘maa’ on the show by Arshi Khan, Akash Dadlani and other contestants on the show.
Shilpa post her win in an interview said, ‘’I didn’t have much of an idea about ‘Bigg Boss’ or how to handle the whole thing. Inside, they were different kinds of people. I am quite emotional and I cannot fight for each and everything. There’s a limit to my short temperedness. I believe that keechad mein patthar feko toh keechad apne pe hi aata hai. So that’s how I handled the difficult moments. I was not involved in playing politics or gossiping behind people’s backs.”
On her plans of Bollywood debut Shilpa said, ‘’I am expecting some good offers from Bollywood. There was a time when I was not open for movies and was happy doing television though. But now I’ll like to do good films. If I get a small role in a film backed by a big banner, I won’t mind. I just want to do quality work.”
Shilpa sharing her experience of Bigg Boss 11 said, ‘’Puneesh Sharma gave me the support though a little late. And I got a lot of support from Salman Khan and that’s a huge honour. There were times when I was hurt and I was not able to react. But he understood it as I believe he’s also emotional. In fact, lots of people call me ‘TV Ki Salman Khan’ and ‘Dabangg’ on the sets of my TV shows.”
