Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain has been one of the most loved sit-coms of the country. The show faced obstacles and one of them was when Shilpa Shinde took a sudden exit though later Shubhangi Atre filled in her shoes and garnered appreciation from the audience. Later, we saw Shilpa taking a dig at Shubhangi by calling her a copy cat as she told Telly Chakkar, “She is a good copy cat. I have seen her on the show. You can make someone look and dress like Angoori, but it’s not easy to act like Angoori. She is a good actress and will definitely do well in her career if she stops imitating and does something original.”

Talking about her conflicts with the makers, she added, “Kya maanga tha maine (what did I ask for?) I worked hard for the show and my character became popular. Apni aukat dekh ke hi per-day maanga tha maine (I asked for the raise on the basis of my worth). What’s wrong in that? It was such a small issue which could have been sorted out, but they blew it out of proportion.”
Later, when she garnered controversy for her Copy Cat remark, Shilpa responded to TOI and said, “There was never a question of copying anyone. I was not playing Shubhangi Atre or Shilpa Shinde on-screen. I was essaying a character and it was written by a writer. I was enacting the lines, the mannerism that was told to me. Angoori was a character. When Shilpa played the role Angoori used to speak in Bhojpuri and spoke wrong English and that continued even when I stepped into the role, it will not change, it cannot as we both were playing Angoori on-screen. I was not copying Shilpa Shinde. I made sure that there is originality in the role when I portray it and everyone can see it.”
