Popular TV actress Shilpa Shinde, who garnered popularity across the nation for her portrayal of Angoori Bhabhi in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, shocked us when she left the show in 2016 citing the issues with producers Binaifer Kohli and Sanjay Kohli, and former channel head, Vikas Gupta. Now, actor Aasif Sheikh who portrays the character of Vibhuti opened about the row between Shilpa Shinde and the makers and told Lucknow Times, “Shilpa had some issues with the producers and the channel and none with the co-actors. In fact, recently she recommended my name for ‘Bigg Boss’ but I refused as I don’t want any kind of controversies in my life.”

He added, “We were not aware of what went wrong between the director, producer and the actor. The reason I did not speak about the issue was that I prefer minding my own business. Moreover, I did not take a stand for Shilpa Shilpa as I felt she had not taken the right stand. What is an actor’s commitment when they sign a show? It is towards the show. Bhabi Ji is the only silver lining in Shilpa’s career.”
The actor also revealed that he recommended Shilpa Shinde's name for Bhabhi ji and asserted, “The character of Bhabiji, which she portrayed, was the best ever anybody could get, so I kept telling her, nothing is worth losing this show, as she was very close to me. In fact, I got her the show. When the writer of the show narrated the character to me I said this is Shilpa Shinde. She was the ideal bhabhi and was really charming as the character. I was very against her leaving the show. But she had her own problems.” So, what are your thoughts on Shilpa Shinde's decision of taking an exit from the show? Tweet and let us know @bollywood_life.
