Shilpa Shinde might no longer be a part of Star Bharat’s new comedy show Gangs Of Filmistan. Shilpa Shinde has decided to quit the show even before the show has been premiered on television. The actress, in an exclusive chat with a TV channel, shared her thoughts regarding the show, the problem with Sunil Grover and why she is thinking of quitting Gangs Of Filmistan. The actress is unhappy with Sunil Grover getting the maximum screen time and working for long hours.
Shilpa Shinde said, “I will raise my voice because after doing so much of work and working so hard, I have to stand in the background in the entire act. Not just this, in this pandemic, we are shooting for 12-15 hours. I am talking about it now so that people can’t say later why I didn’t speak up earlier.”
Shilpa further added, “The producers should understand and value their actors. Neither is the script ready nor do they have everything planned. The shift starts at morning 7 and we pack up at 11 in the night. You can’t exploit actors. We aren’t labours.” Talking about her problem with Sunil Grover, who plays Bhindi Bhai on the show, she said, “50 per cent of my problem is with Sunil Grover. For promotions, they used my name but in the show’s promo, only Sunil can be seen. Not just this, Sunil will be a part of every act and we are given just one line. We are not there just to give cues to Sunil.”
Drawing comparisons to The Kapil Sharma Show, Shilpa Shinde said, “Look at The Kapil Sharma Show. Every actor gets space there and equal opportunity to act. No one has to stand in the background. Every character on that show has its own identity but here it’s all about Sunil Grover. Why don’t they change the name to Sunil Grover Show?”
Shilpa Shinde said that she is speaking for everyone and not just herself and has made her mind to leave the show. Let’s see if the makers are able to address her grievances or not.
