Fans are conspicuous by the absence of Shilpa Shinde. The girl
became the darling of the masses as Soni of Maayka fame. Post
Maayka, Shinde was seen in Waaris but the show didn"t last long.
Currently, the actress is doing an unheralded Doordarshan show, but
the fans would love to see her back on the popular Hindi GECs.
Trouble though is that the popular GECs are mainly wooing
rookie, and economical actors. “Honestly speaking, there"s no
respect for good actors anymore. I received many offers but the
money offered was way below the accepted standard. Besides, some of
the producers wanted me to play a mother, that is something which
I"ve never been comfortable doing," said Shinde.
After a year long hiatus, Shinde took an unheralded Doordarshan
show Adhura Bandhan. “A DD show doesn"t get so much hype but it"s a
pleasure to be working with good actors such as Vishal Singh and
Sudha Chandran. This is a daily too but we only shoot for 15 days
in a month. So, I get 15 days for myself too," she sighed.
Shinde made a public appearance at Dheeraj Kumar"s son birthday
bash on 8 May. Onlookers claimed that the girl has lost oodles of
weight and they found it difficult to identity her. “I"m a little
surprised because, I don"t think I"ve lost so much weight. Besides,
I never gained any in the first place. I don"t even go to a gym.
It"s plain yoga for me. Perhaps, people must have seen me after a
long time, and sans the usual make-up," said an amused Shinde.
Finally, post her break up to Romit Raj, has our girl found a
“No, I"m still single and living happily with my parents," pat
came the reply.
The die hard Shilpa fans will certainly welcome this.
