Bigg Boss 11 contestant Shilpa Shinde, has become one of the strongest contenders that could possibly win the BB11 title. Before entering the house, Shilpa became a household name for her portrayal as Angoori bhabi in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai.
However, things took a turn for the worst when Shilpa claimed that Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai producer Sanjay Kohli sexually harassed her. She even hit back against ex-co-star Saumya Tandon who plays Anita and stated that the actress did not take her claim seriously. Saumya denied Shilpa’s accusations.
With Shilpa’s exit from the show, many were wondering if it would still air. When asked about the same by a leading daily, Saumya stated, “I did fear that the show will take a hit because the audience associates a face with a character. Moreover, it’s difficult to replace an actor, especially in comedy, as the genre needs performers. What saved Bhabiji… is that no one actor is big on the show.”
On her relationship with Shilpa, Saumya continued, “I had a strictly professional relationship with her. All I know is that she fit the role perfectly. People can see how she is in real life on Bigg Boss. I watched an episode of the show, but couldn’t follow it further.”
Speaking of Bigg Boss 11, when the daily quizzed her on being a contestant on Bigg Boss, Saumya quipped, “I would be a disaster; I will be shot dead by the makers as I won’t give them any controversial content. I can’t fight.”
