Her performance as Angoori Bhabhi was loved by the audience. Notably, her exit from the show was quite controversial and made her the talk of the town. Shilpa was eventually replaced by Shubhangi Atre.
Post her stint on the reality show Bigg Boss 11, Shilpa was missing from the small screen. Though she was offered several shows, she turned down all of them.
