'Bhabi ji Ghar Par Hai!' actress Shilpa Shinde aka Angoori to quit show; makers to replace her with new actress?

Mumbai: Rumour has it, Shilpa Shinde aka Angoori Bhabhi of popular sitcom Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai is likely to be replaced by another actress on the show. If reports are to be believed, the producers of Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai are planning to replace Shilpa Shinde with another actress. Shilpa, who plays the role of Angoori Bhabhi, has reportedly been throwing tantrums on the sets lately, and has also asked for her fee to be revised. Miffed with Shilpa's unprofessional behaviour and high handed attitude the production house is now planning to show her the door. The producers have already started to look for her replacement. The Times Of India quoted a source as saying, "She has started using her own costumes and has even hired a stylist, which has upped the show's budget. She also wants her fee to be revised and keeps threatening to quit if her demands are not met. The makers have already started auditioning for a new actress to step into her shoes." Meanwhile, Shilpa has a different story to tell. Shilpa, who made Angoori Bhabhi a household name with her innocence and charm, says she had been planning to quit the show for quite some time now due to ill-treatment by the production house. "I have been mentally tortured by the channel and the production house. They have threatened to sabotage my career if I take up work on rival channels. Initially, Rashami Desai was finalised for the part; I was roped in when she opted out abruptly. I have stood by them during crisis and was hoping they would reciprocate in my time of need," she was quoted as saying by TOI. "I have expressed a desire to quit the show as I am medically unfit. I didn't even get time to consult a doctor when I suffered from a severe throat infection. They even use up my unblocked five days to promote their events. I don't get time for myself," Shilpa added. On the accusation of using her own costumes, Shilpa clarified that since the production house couldn't pay for a dress designer, she had to hire one herself. About fee revision, the actress feels she deserves a hike as the show has completed a year. Review: Why is everyone talking about Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai? Shilpa's impeccable comic timing and chemistry with her co-stars is the highlight of the show. If she quits or is replaced, it will certainly cause a dent in the show's popularity.
