'Shilpa Shinde Has Not Officially Confirmed Her Exit To Us, So We Will Keep Sending Her The Shoot Dates,' Says Gangs Of Filmistan Producer Preeti Simoes- EXCLUSIVE
Bigg Boss 11 contestant Shilpa Shinde has embroiled herself in a new controversy now. The actress, who left her show Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai on a bitter note three years back, seems to be repeating history. The actress who is part of Star Bharat's new show, Gangs Of Filmistan along with Sunil Grover, Sidharth Sagar, Sanket Bhosle, Sughanda Mishra, Upasna Singh and Paritosh Tripathi, announced her exit from the show in the media even before the first episode was telecasted.

Shilpa while reasoning out her decision of opting out from the show, made some serious allegations against the producers which stated that they have flouted the guidelines while shooting on the sets and also lied to her about Sunil Grover not being part of the show. However, the actress has strangely not officially discontinued the show and we learnt this from one of the producers, Preeti Simoes, who is not only shocked with the allegations which Shilpa has made against them but also upset with her act of announcing the exit without informing them.

Talking to us exclusively Preeti Simoes said, "She has not informed her exit from the show to us or the channel till now. So, we will keep sending her the shooting schedule until she informs her decision officially to us. There has been no communication from her end as she is not reverting to any calls and messages. The last conversation we had was her informing us that she has got a cold because of which we told her not to come to the shoot. I think that must have upset her but we have to follow the current protocols as safety is our priority. We requested her to take a day off and also suggested to take precautionary measures at home. It was only three days of shooting she did with us and on the fourth day she complained about a cold which as per her happened due to shooting with us."

Ask her if she was aware about Shilpa's discomfort on the set with Sunil Grover to which Simoes replied, "I didn't know about any such problems or discomfort she has been facing until I read in the media. If she had any such problem I would have appreciated it if she discussed it with us to resolve it. She is irreplaceable and a very good talent but if she is unhappy to continue with the show then I am okay with her decision but she has to tell me why she is unhappy. Because whatever she has claimed in the media is all false news. She is saying that she wasn't aware that Sunil was a part of the show when she had already shot 5 gags with him. She never addressed having an issue on work timings or script. We are working with Frames productions and Star network who are very professional. Any person who wants to disassociate themselves with the show has to give a genuine reason which she is not giving."

Preeti is also upset with Shilpa's allegation of  them using her name for promotions. "She is claiming that we used her for our show promotions. On the other hand, she only said that she was not made a part of the first promo because we wanted to highlight Sunil Grover more. Honestly, for me all actors are the same and that's why after Sunil's promo of Bhindi Bhai, her promo came out. Shilpa is undoubtedly a popular actress with a great fan base but her constant discrepancies in her own statement are quite confusing not just for us but even for her fans. I think her fans are the sweetest, they have stood by her through thick and thin but now I feel she uses her emotional angle really well to confuse them. I really wish she doesn't do that because they are the biggest support system for her. It's not the first time a production house is facing difficulty because of her but I hope she continues working on the show. However, if she doesn't, then I wish her next producer all the best because they will need it."
