TV actress Shilpa Shinde, who shot to fame with her comic timing as Angoori Bhabhi in Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain, went on to expand her popularity with Bigg Boss 11. The actress impressed everyone with her calm and composed manner and it was her behaviour that made her won the trophy. Shilpa defeated arch-rival Hina Khan in the nail-biting finale of Bigg Boss 11.
Rumour said that Shilpa bought a house in Malad's Evershine Nagar with her prize money but in a conversation with indianexpress.com, the actress refuted such reports. She clarified that she bought the property before entering Bigg Boss. ''I had bought it with my earnings that were released by producers of Bhabhiji Ghar Pe Hain just before I was offered Bigg Boss. I made the payment and went to the Bigg Boss house. So, a lot of paperwork I finished once I came out. In fact, now I feel that maybe this is why people thought that I bought the house from the prize money,'' Shilpa said.
When asked what is she planning to do with the prize money of the show, she revealed her noble motive. The actress said that in her father's memory she wants to do something for elderly people. She said that her aim is to make a place for old people. ''Actually, I have realised all that old people want from you is that they want to talk. And in our busy lives and work, we barely get any time for a freewheeling chat with our folks, she said.
Shilpa plans to create a creche. Revealing her brainchild gladly, Shilpa elaborated her plan. ''I have this concept that I will create a creche for old people. Yes, a creche, how when you go to work you drop kids to their creche and there they mingle with other kids and at the same time are in safe hands and you know they have been looked after. Similarly, I have seen many children (working couples, daughters or sons) have to hire a helper who looks after their parents. Instead of this, they can send their parents to the creche where they will meet like-minded and same age group people who they can chat with, discuss, play games etc. Helpers working there will look after their meals, medicines etc. So, the children can be stress-free while at work. I have decided to utilise my Bigg Boss winning amount for this,'' the actress said.
Shilpa is currently winning hearts with Dhan Dhana Dhan, where she is tickling funnybones of her fans along with Sunil Grover.
