Shooting not a headache for Shilpa Shinde
Actress Shilpa Shinde, who plays diligent homemaker Angoori in TV show “Bhabhiji Ghar Pe Hai?” is quite similar to her onscreen avatar in real life. She suffered a terrible migraine attack in between shoots, but decided to continue working.
Shilpa shrugged away the pain and didn’t take any time off the shoot in order to complete her schedule.
“I do get these migraine attacks once in a while and they can be quite debilitating. But, there’s a schedule to finish so one can’t afford to rest it out. In a way, the shoots are also a good distraction because once I’m in front of the camera, I try not to pay heed to the headache,” Shilpa said in a statement.
Shilpa has previously appeared in shows like “Sanjeevani – A Medical Boon”, “Meher”, “Bhabhi” “Hatim” and “Lapataganj”.
