TV actress Shilpa Shinde is one of the celebrity contestants on Bigg Boss 11. Born on August 28, 1977, Shilpa made her television debut in the year 2001 with the show Kabhi Aaye Na Judaai. She later went on to do quite a few other TV shows like Sanjivani, Meher, Amrapali among others. Her negative role in the show, Bhabhi got her under the spotlight. She became more popular when she played the role of Koyal Ghotak Narayan on Chidiya Ghar. However, her actual claim to fame was &TV’s Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai! in which she played the role of Angoori Bhabhi and went on to win millions of hearts. Recently, she did an item number in the film, Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi.
However, last year, she decided to quit the show alleging that the makers “mentally tortured” her. Not just that she also accused the producer Sanjay Kohli of sexually harassing her. She also alleged that his wife and co-producer Benaifer Kohli threatened to destroy her career. She stopped coming on the set for several days after which CINTAA reportedly issued a non-cooperation directive against her which meant that she would not be able to work on TV again. Later, CINTAA squashed all these stories and said there was no such directive issued against her. The controversy didn’t end there as she later blamed Vikas Gupta, &TV’s head of programming, for the fallout.

Interestingly, Vikas too is a contestant this year on Bigg Boss 11, so it will be interesting to see how Shilpa and Vikas will react when they find each other under one roof.
Shilpa also had a troublesome relationship, which ended up in a messy breakup. She was apparently engaged to Romit Raj, her co-star from the TV show, Maayka. Reportedly even the wedding cards were ready. But then wedding was called off for reasons best known to them and Romit got married to another woman.
