Can she win the show? Twitter says yes

Shilpa shinde is the winner of Bigg Boss 11, but it was announced by twitter hours ago.

While every year there is a clear fan favourite, Shilpa’s popularity is something else. In fact, ‘Shilpa Shinde For The Win,’ has been a top trend on Sunday, hours before Salman Khan-hosted show even started its telecast. As Bigg Boss began, the tweets and fan frenzy also increased. While Bigg Boss 11 grand finale began with Shilpa Shinde, Hina Khan, Vikas Gupta and Puneesh Sharma – others fell along the way, leaving only Shilpa and Hina on the stage.

Shilpa and Vikas Gupta’s legendary fights which carried over from their Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain fracas started Shilpa on a strong note. Her culinary skills helped her make friends on the show but refusal to proactively participate in the tasks was a hindrance.

While TV fans know who Shilpa Shinde is, her popularity demands that we have a quick run through her career.

Shilpa started her career almost 18 years ago on Indian TV. A negative role in Bhabhi brought her into spotlight an she followed it up with a role in Kabhi Aaye Na Judaai. It was the medical soap Sanjeevani and Amrapali that cemented her position in the industry.

While she has a long and interesting career graph -- Meher in DD National’s popular show Meher - Kahani Haq Aur Haqeeqat Ki, Star Plus’ Hatim, Zee TV;s Rabba Ishq Na Hove and Betiyaan Apni Yaa Paraaya Dhan, her breakthrough role was Chidiya Ghar.

She followed the show with Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain where she played Angoori Bhabi. Ostensibly her most popular role till date, it also got her a lot on negative publicity when she walked off the show after a year alleging that the makers “mentally tortured” her. She later accused producer, Sanjay Kohli, of sexual harassment and his wife, Benaifer Kohli, of threats. Vikas, the programming head of &TV, said Shilpa threw her weight around on the show. He was said to be instrumental in her ouster from Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai.
