Shilpa Shinde, who played the character of Angoori Bhabi in the comedy ‘Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai’ before being replaced, will be back again as Bhabiji for her fans.
The actress has been roped in for a digital series titled ‘Controversial Bhabiji’.
Shilpa sparked a controversy when she walked out of the popular sitcom alleging ‘mental torture’ from the makers.
Shilpa eventually won the legal war over the breach of trust with the makers of the series, after which the producers got Shubhangi Atre to replace her.
Now, Shilpa will be seen in her Bhabiji once again, but in a different show altogether. “It will be a spoof on the controversy that resulted after I decided to quit the show. I am a simple woman, but people have made me out to be a controversial person by blowing things out of proportion. If that’s how it is, then it’s best I enjoy it,” the actress said in a press statement.
“For those wondering where Bhabiji has gone missing, this show is an answer to that,” she added.
Her character in the web series will be modelled just like the one she played on the popular comedy. Regarding any probable copyright issues for using the word ‘Bhabiji’, the makers of the new series, said, “Bhabhiji is a generic term and there cannot be any copyright on it.” – (CINEWS)
