Early Life and Career
Shilpa was born on August 28, 1977 in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Her father is an advocate and her mother a housewife. After graduating with a degree in Psychology, Shinde decided to pursue a career in acting. She also joined some dancing classes.
Shilpa made her debut as an actress on TV in 1999 with a negative role in the serial ‘Bhabhi.’ She only became famous after portraying the role of Angoori Bhabhi in the comedy show Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai. The punch line of her character in the sitcom was ‘Sahi Pakde Hain’ which became a hit with the audience. She left the show after one year. Some of the other serials that Shilpa acted in were Miss India, Maayka, Hatim Chidiya Ghar, Amrapali, Hari Mirchi Lal Mirchi, Sanjeevani, and Meher.

After leaving the show Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai, Shilpa claimed that she was mentally tortured by the makers of the show and was asked to sign a bad contract which made her leave the sitcom. The production house and the channel however stated that Shinde threw tantrums on the show’s sets and even asked for a big pay hike.
In 2017, Shilpa filed a case against CINTAA chairman Sushant Singh alleging that he had caused great harm to her reputation in the film and TV industry. Her accusations were met with equal levels of criticism and support. Fellow actress Saumya Tandon termed it as childish behavior.
Controversy with Vikas Gupta
Shilpa Shinde had an altercation in the Bigg Boss 11 house with Vikas Gupta, who was the head of the channel in which ‘Bhabi ji Ghar Par Hai’ was aired.

While Vikas Gupta has said that he had met her only once or twice in professional circles, Shilpa Shinde has hinted that the two have met many times, beyond professional capacity.
