From Being a Naïve Bhabhi in BGPH to a Scheming Queen in Paurushpur, Shilpa Shinde Aces it All
Shilpa Shinde is a versatile actor who can nail any kind of role. From a naive housewife to a scheming queen, here is how she is acing her acting game
Shilpa Shinde has been gracing us with her presence in the Hindi television industry for many years now. She has established her name and prominence in the industry due to her impeccable talent and versatile acting skills. She is now soon to star in Zee5’s new web series titled Paurushpur where she will be playing the role of Queen Meerawati. Paurushpur is a period drama that chronicles around kings and kingdoms and we cannot wait to see Shilpa Shinde in it.
Watch the trailer of Paurushpur here:
43-year-old television actress Shilpa Shinde has always been in the spotlight for her popular roles in various TV shows such as soap opera Bhabi and sitcom Bhabi Ji Ghar par hai. She played the role of Angoori bhabhi in BGPH where she was seen as a feeble and simple housewife. Her acting as a gullible and naive woman not only gave us fits of laughter but she also received a lot of appreciation for her performance. Due to her role in BGPH, she became a household name and further rose to prominence. Even after these many years, we still cannot get over Angoori bhabhi and her innocent antics.
But, long gone are the days when Shilpa was known only for her “bhabhi” roles. She has proven herself to be a very versatile artist with her role as Queen Meerawati in Paurushpur. Here, Shinde plays the role of king Bhadrapratap’s wife who is a firm believer of patriarchy. She defies the norms of a patriarchal society and where men oppress women and will be seen scheming in order to gain power. She can loosely be compared with Game of Thrones’ Queen Cersei, who is a mastermind and can easily manipulate the men around her. Shilpa will represent a really strong and independent woman who does not easily let anyone walk all over her.
Shilpa has gone from playing the role of a simple and naive girl in a sitcom to playing the role of a scheming and strong queen in a period drama and it is safe to say that just like her role in Bhabi Ji Ghar par hai, she will ace her role in Paurushpur too. While both the roles are completely opposite, she has got what it takes to do more serious roles and she is sure to nail it! Paurushpur is all set to release in December exclusively on Zee5.
