Television actress Shilpa Shinde has been ruling millions of heart. The actress got recognized for her role of Angoori Bhabi in popular show ‘Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai’ and after that she won Bigg Boss 11.
She bagged the trophy and earned a prize money of Rs 44 lakh. While, recently, there were rumours doing the rounds that the actress had invested the money in a property in Malad’s Evershine Nagar.
However, Shilpa rubbished the rumours and in a statement to Indian Express, said, “What? No! I mean I have purchased a flat in Malad, but that is not with my Bigg Boss prize.”
“I had bought it with my earnings that were released by producers of Bhabhiji Ghar Pe Hain just before I was offered Bigg Boss. I made the payment and went to the Bigg Boss house. So, a lot of paperwork I finished once I came out. In fact, now I feel that maybe this is why people thought that I bought the house from the prize money.” she said.
Revealing what she plans to do with her Bigg Boss 11 prize money, Shilpa said, “I always had thought that if I ever win the show, I will only use the prize money for other people, in my dad’s memory. And now that I have won it, I want to make a place for old people. Actually, I have realised all that old people want from you is that they want to talk. And in our busy lives and work, we barely get any time for a freewheeling chat with our folks.”[ecp code=”4″]
Shilpa Shinde said she came across this issue from her own personal experience of interacting with the elderly. “I have this concept that I will create a creche for old people. Yes, a creche, how when you go to work you drop kids to their creche and there they mingle with other kids and at the same time are in safe hands and you know they have been looked after. Similarly, I have seen many children (working couples, daughters or sons) have to hire a helper who looks after their parents. Instead of this, they can send their parents to the creche where they will meet like-minded and same age group people who they can chat with, discuss, play games etc.”
“Helpers working there will look after their meals, medicines etc. So, the children can be stress-free while at work. I have decided to utilise my Bigg Boss winning amount for this.” she added.
Meanwhile on the work front, Shilpa is currently seen in the comedy show ‘Dhan Dhana Dhan’ with comedian Sunil Grover. Both are seen as a couple in the show and the duo’s hot chemistry is loved by the audience.
