'Controversy is always associated with me. The makers of 'Bigg Boss' also thought that my controversial personality would prove beneficial for them. They would get more and more content. However, in real life I am not quarrelsome but mature and composed.

I have faced many ups and downs in life. In the beginning of my career, despite being talented, producers used to demand wrong things. Then despite being right, many associations boycotted me. It became difficult to put my point across even in front of family members. People think that I deliberately pretend. I was also tagged as Tantrum Queen.

This is what actress Shilpa Shinde has to say, who is seen as a contestant in 'Khatron Ke Khiladi 14' this year. Before this, she has done many shows like 'Bigg Boss 11', 'Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain', 'Maika', 'Chidiya Ghar'.

Shilpa Shinde, winner of 'Bigg Boss 11', is one of the popular actresses of television.

My friends also say that you are acting.

In an interview to Dainik Bhaskar, Shilpa Shinde says, 'Controversy is always associated with me. When I did my first show 'Amrapali', I shot 25 episodes at that time and then had to leave it midway due to some personal reasons. Unfortunately, the trend of leaving shows midway continued till my last show 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa'. This time I have decided that I will not leave 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' midway. Believe me, I do not do this intentionally. Not only people from the industry but even my friends say that you pretend. During 'Jhalak…', I was really ill. I had high fever and that is why I left the show midway.'

Shilpa Shinde has also been very popular for South films.

Sometimes there is conflict even with family members

The actress further says, 'Sometimes I have differences with my family members too. Where the outside world blames you, the family members also start doubting you. They say why does this happen only to you? You are wrong. They say what will they answer to the outsiders? However, I have learned to handle the situation in a very mature way.'

She used to take her mother for meetings

Shilpa started her career with South cinema. In the initial phase, the actress was also subjected to casting couch. About this, she says, 'I remember, I used to take my mother for meetings. I realized that taking my mother along was just making rounds of the office. People used to shy away from talking to me. I understood why these people were not talking.

Shilpa Shinde made her debut in 1999. She worked in many shows like Kabhi Aaye Na Judaai, Sanjivani, Meher.

Producers would ask: What can you do to become a heroine?

Then I decided not to take my mother to the meeting. I wanted to see what the producer says. When I went, he said- 'Hey, I couldn't talk much in front of your mother, so I used to talk about this and that. Tell me, what can you do to become a heroine? What can you give in return?' In response, I assured him that I will work hard, do rehearsals, script readings etc. I am even ready to work for less money. I cannot do anything more than this. In retaliation, he changed the topic and said the wrong thing in a roundabout way. He said- This is a common thing, everyone does it. I told them that whoever does it, you should work with them. In response, they said- you go and struggle in the industry, you will not get work like this. I believed in myself and moved forward.

According to Shilpa, she was very disappointed at that time.

She said, 'There came a time when many associations turned against me. Some people do not know the truth. They react after listening to one-sided things. I was very disappointed at that time. But I handled this situation with maturity. Instead of walking in a herd, I decided to walk alone. In my case, I had not done anything wrong. Despite this, I was tagged as a tantrum queen. The makers of 'Bigg Boss' also thought that my controversial personality would prove beneficial for them. They would get more and more content. However, the audience saw my real nature. It was because of their love that I became the winner of that show. This is a matter of pride for me.'

I got that film and after that I never had to look back. I will always be grateful to Dada.'
