Mumbai: TV actress Shilpa Shinde, who recently won the controversial reality show Bigg Boss season 11, does not want to do daily soaps any more.
The former Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain actress surrounded with controversies in 2017,whether it be her quitting the show or the sexual harassment case. But she won hearts with her stint in Bigg Boss 11 and emerged as the winner.
Recently in an interview with a leading daily, the actress spoke about her journey and revealed that she does not want to star in TV serials anymore.
“Life is full of ups and downs. One needs to stay positive in life, no matter what. When I was going through the tough time, people told me to change the vaastu of my house but I never felt that what was happening with me was bad. I just kept moving forward. I was fighting the sexual harassment case last year and this year, I won a popular show. I believe whatever has to happen, will happen, you just need to stand up for yourself,” said Shilpa.
“I have done enough TV and I don’t think I would be able to do TV serials anymore. There is a lot more that one can do. Sure, TV has made me what I am today, but after a long career on TV, I was cornered and treated [badly] in the TV industry (after exiting from the comedy serial). I don’t think I should do serials anymore. I have a lot of self-respect. In a TV show, there is a lot of competition
about sharing screen space,” she added.
Shilpa further said, “Chhota parda, chhoti soch, unlike films where you get due credit as per your role. I would like to explore anchoring in reality shows, I have offers for web shows and might also do a Marathi film. I don’t want to be wasted in a film. The banner, star cast and my role has to be good.”
Leaving behind Hina Khan, Vikas Gupta and Puneesh Sharma, Shilpa won Big Boss 11 trophy and prize money of Rs 40 lakh.
