Gangs Of Filmistan: Producer Preeti Simoes Lashes At Shilpa Shinde, Refutes All Alegations, 'No Favouritism For Sunil Grover'
Shilpa Shinde is making her comeback after two years with the comedy show 'Gangs Of Filmistan' and even before the show went air and the Bigg Boss 11 winner has  shocked fans. Voicing her disappointment towards the makers, Shilpa made some serious allegations against the producers of the show for flouting the guidelines while shooting on the sets and lying to her about Sunil Grover not being part of the show. Howver, one of the producers of the show Preeti Simoes has now denied all the allegations and called it a misunderstanding. 

While talking about Shilpa's allegation of the guidelines not being followed on the sets, producer of the show, Preeti said her chemistry with Sunil Grover in their last show during IPL was brilliant and experience of working with her was really good and thats why they thought that it would be great to repeat the pairing. "We all are working with limited people and hence cant take chance of anyone falling sick. There were five people earlier to write a script and to cut down the number of people only two are on board now. Our set at 'Filmistan' and all the guidelines are being followed." She added that she  didn't mind anyone coming on the set to check.

Preeti also revealed that most of their artistes have been told to get ready from their homes and do their own makeup.They are not flouting any rules, she said while saying Shilpa never shared all these concerns with the team.

Preeti also cleared the air on Shilpa's claim that she was lied to when the makers told her that Sunil Grover will not be part of the show, while stressing that there is no favouritism given to Sunil, "When we were casting, Shilpa Shinde and Sidharth Sagar were the first two people, whom we spoke to for the show. And as per later creative devlopment there was a need to cast someone of Sunil's stature and experience to be a part of the show. Hence he came on board and Shilpa knew about this as she shot for the promo."

Preeti feels that Shilpa and Sunil are cordial with each other. And the scripts are mailed to them in two days advance so if Shilpa had any apprehension she could have brought it up but she never told her that she doesn't want to perform with Sunil Grover or her lines were less as compared to other actors. 

She went on saying, "I think her reaction for not being seen on the show has come a little premature as she has not seen the show. She doesn't know how the entire episode has been fleshed out, how she is looking in the show. Her fans will be very happy to see her because obviously we would also like to do justice with the actor of her calibre. Why would I pay to get a Shilpa Shinde when I won't show her in the episode. As far as giving favourtism to Sunil Grover is concerned, that's not at all true because only the first promo was Sunil but after that all actors who have been in combination with other actors have their individual promo. Everyone is pretty much equal on the show, I think the anxiety that she has about not being seen on the show, will fade away."
