‘Cine and TV Artistes Association did not want people to work with me,' reveals Shilpa Shinde on not getting significant roles on the small screen


Shilpa Shinde made her acting debut in 2001 with TV show Kabhi Aaye Na Judaai and since then, there's been no looking back for her. She even won the reality show Bigg Boss 11 and no one can forget her stint as Angoori Bhabhi in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai. However, her association with the show ended on a sour note after she accused makers of mental torture and went on to file a defamation case against three prominent cine federations — CINTAA, FWICE and IFTPC. Soon after, she also alleged that Cine and TV Artistes Association had banned her, charges that the association later denied.

Having a bad experience after her last sitcom, Shilpa claims that TV does not interest her anymore. “All these years, I dedicated my life to the medium and have had got immense love and job satisfaction. However, after what happened when I left my last (sitcom) show… The work I was getting wasn’t good enough and after a point, I realised that was because [Cine and TV Artistes Association] did not want people to work with me. After a lot of fights, finally things have changed for better, but still I’m not getting the kind of work I’d like to do. Since that’s not happening, I’m not thinking about TV right now," she told in an interview with a leading daily.

When asked if she is keen of doing films or web, she quipped, “I had got a few web offers but those roles again weren’t anything that I haven’t done before. Also, I don’t think I can do bold scenes onscreen; I’m really not comfortable. But there’s something on the web that I’m in talks for and if everything falls in place, we’d soon make an announcement." Well, that's exciting!

As for films, she maintained, "Having done so much work on TV, and with the kind of expectations my fans from me, I can’t go wrong in taking up not-so-good characters."

Away from showbiz, Shilpa started her own clothing line sometime back and is content running her designer store.
