Trouble though is that the popular GECs are mainly wooing rookie, and economical actors. “Honestly speaking, there"s no respect for good actors anymore. I received many offers but the money offered was way below the accepted standard. Besides, some of the producers wanted me to play a mother, that is something which I"ve never been comfortable doing," said Shinde.
After a year long hiatus, Shinde took an unheralded Doordarshan show Adhura Bandhan. “A DD show doesn"t get so much hype but it"s a pleasure to be working with good actors such as Vishal Singh and Sudha Chandran. This is a daily too but we only shoot for 15 days in a month. So, I get 15 days for myself too," she sighed.
Shinde made a public appearance at Dheeraj Kumar"s son birthday bash on 8 May. Onlookers claimed that the girl has lost oodles of weight and they found it difficult to identity her. “I"m a little surprised because, I don"t think I"ve lost so much weight. Besides, I never gained any in the first place. I don"t even go to a gym. It"s plain yoga for me. Perhaps, people must have seen me after a long time, and sans the usual make-up," said an amused Shinde.
Finally, post her break up to Romit Raj, has our girl found a new companion?
“No, I"m still single and living happily with my parents," pat came the reply.
The die hard Shilpa fans will certainly welcome this.
