Shilpa Sinde Quits Gangs of Filmistan after First Episode

ACtress Shilpa Shinde is a well known face in the TV industry. She is popularly known for her stint in Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai and Bigg Boss. She signed up for the show Gangs of Filmistan and the first episode of the much-awaited sketch comedy show aired earlier in the evening. But now she claims that she was ‘tricked’ into doing the show even though she made it clear earlier that she won’t be working with Sunil Grover.

After accusing the makers of Gangs of Filmistan of flouting the guidelines and lying about Sunil Grover, actress Shilpa Shinde has taken the decision to quit the show and said that she doesn’t want to be a part of a show where there’s no self-respect.

Talking to a leading portal, the actress said, “I had given my 200 percent, I had done a lot of hard work which obviously was not seen at all. But as I said earlier, I had no problems with the team, the star cast. They all have worked hard and they are the best actors to work with. So, I gave my best wishes to them through my social media post. I am not trying to be diplomatic here, I love all the actors whom I worked with on the show. But there is also the truth that I am very hurt after I saw the first episode and there is a bitter feeling now.”

She went on say that the show is made for only Sunil Grover and quoted, “Comedy is a male dominating genre I have said this earlier. I felt like I was being used as an eye candy. I came, I uttered two lines and went off. I was not interested in doing Television. It’s not like I have no money and was desperate to get back to work. But they have used my name. I am doing the show after two years, I should have at least given a special entry. Till the time we were performing the scenes without Sunil ji we all were doing great, the moment he started doing gags, we got sidelined. I am working after a gap of two years, why will I try to spoil everything, but I want to say that I was getting exploited on the sets when it comes to acting. This show is being made to give Kapil Sharma a competition. I am giving an open challenge to the makers if you want to make the show all about Sunil Grover, then please rename it to The Sunil Grover Show and air it on the weekend when Kapil’s show airs, I am ready to work.”

Talking about his decision of quitting the show, she said, “When things have got so ugly what will I do even if I return to the show. It is a comedy show, how will I perform after having this bitter feeling? After having an experience of so many years I am being used as a prop, is it justified? If I am a bad actor then tell me on my face. I want to ask my fans what they feel after all this should I return to the show? I am asking them, I am asking the channel, after giving this treatment to me and using my name for the promotion of the show, are you willing to call me back? I feel the makers have already got what they needed from me. I am not doing the show, I don’t want to be a part of a show where I am not seen, where I don’t have my self-respect, I don’t want to do it.”
