For years, she graced the small screen with myriad roles and characters. Her portrayal as India’s favorite Bhabhi brought her into limelight and soon Shilpa Shinde became a household name. This year, her entry in Bigg Boss 11 made headlines and since then, the Marathi mulgi has taken the small screen by storm! 

With an explosive first week in the Bigg Boss house, Shilpa showed off her passive–aggressive side to the audiences. However, with time she settled into the house and soon took on the role of a mother, showcasing nurturing qualities. Taking on the responsibility of the kitchen, Shilpa ensured that everyone in the house was well fed and taken care off. Mega Star Salman Khan also acknowledged this and referred to her as ‘Maa’ of Bigg Boss 11. Also, cracking jokes around the 6000 rotis she has made for the gharwale.

While her arguments with Vikas kept every one of their toes, it was her forgiving and understanding nature that led Vikas to apologise for his past behavior and soon the two buried the hatchet. Vikas even offered Shilpa a role in his next work project! Friendships are often fickle, and Arshi Khan proved that when she decided to no longer be by Shilpa’s side; even though in the past Shilpa has come to Arshi’s rescue.

While 2 months have passed already, Shilpa was surprised by her real mother who made a special visit to the house. Her loving and caring nature touched the gharwale, and Salman Khan said that Shilpa’s motherly nature is because of her quality upbringing. Saved from eliminations numerous times, she has proved that she is an audience favorite.

Even though Shilpa has been in the industry for over 15 years, she has gone on record to say that, “Yes, I have received a lot of love from audiences for my previous roles. But I honestly feel that Bigg Boss has brought out the real Me.”

With the finale fast approaching, Shilpa has come a long way and soon all of Maharashtra will be rooting for her to win Bigg Boss 11. Don’t forget to watch Bigg Boss this Saturday at 10.30 pm on Colors.
