Mumbai: One of Indian television’s most talented actresses – Shilpa Shinde – went on to become the winner of the eleventh season of super-hit reality show Bigg Boss hosted by Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.
Shilpa, who had won a million hearts as Angoori Bhabhi in Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain, had to quit the show midway. She was out of work for almost a year. Bigg Boss happened to her when she needed it the most and now she has emerged victorious.
Expressing her happiness over the win, Shilpa said “To be able to hear your name in the voice of Bigg Boss as a winner is the best feeling that one can ever experience. It is a show that has made me more respectful towards myself. I have learnt a lot on this show and more than that I have grown stronger as person and as a human being. The immense love and warmth from a lot of people has got me here to this stage. I had decided that if ever in my life I would need any kind of support, I would turn to Salman Khan, but destiny had other plans and ultimately brought me here at this juncture. I am I l overwhelmed at this moment and I'm glad I had this opportunity to work with Bigg Boss 11 and Colors.”
