: Shilpa Shinde has been in news ever since she decided to walk out of the show 'Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai'. Shilpa's Angoori Devi was one of small screen's most loved characters and with Shilpa's sudden exit, the makers were left in a lurch.

Now, in an interesting turn of events, Shubhangi Atre, who had earlier replaced Shilpa in 'Chidiya Ghar', has been brought on board for 'Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai'.

Producer Benaifer Kohli in a statement said, “Shubhangi is an ideal combination of innocence and attractiveness. She is a fabulous actor and I think she will make an exceptional Angoori Bhabhi and will capture everyone’s heart with ease.”

In March, Shilpa Shinde quit the show alleging that the makers "mentally tortured" her. Days ago, showrunner Binaifer Kohli sent Ms Shinde a legal notice asking her to return to work in 48 hours or pay Rs 10 crore as penalty - the show has had to go off air after Ms Shinde quit.

 

The Cine and TV Artistes Association or CINTAA even warned Shilpa for her utterly unprofessional approach and there were reports of a lifetime ban on her. Shilpa then filed a police complaint against CINTAA for banning her from working with any broadcaster after her spat with producer Binaifer Kohli.
