‘Bhabhi Ji’ Shilpa Shinde to do item dance with Rishi Kapoor


Actress Shilpa Shinde, the original Angoori Bhabhi of popular comedy series ‘Bhabhi Ji Ghar Pe Hai’, is all set to sizzle in an item dance in an upcoming flick titled ‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi’.

Shilpa created quite a stir after walking out of the popular sitcom alleging ‘mental torture’ from the producers of the show. This prompted the production house to send a legal notice accusing her of breach of contract, but Shilpa eventually won the legal battle.

Shilpa has landed her big Bollywood break apparently. The actress recently shot for an item number for the film with veteran actor Rishi Kapoor. The song has been choreographed by Ganesh Acharya and sung by Kanika Kapoor, a popular entertainment portal stated. The song will be soon launched amidst fanfare in Mumbai.

‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi’ is a family entertainer which also features Paresh Rawal and Vir Das. The film is being directed by Sanjay Chhel and is scheduled to release this year.

The film is said to be on the lines of Chetan Bhagat’s bestseller ‘Two States’, which was also adapted into the eponymous film starring Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. The film has Rishi Kapoor playing a Punjabi father and Paresh Rawal as a Gujarati father. How their children Vir Das and Tollywood actress Payal Ghosh fall in love and get their parents together, and the comic ride forms the plot of the film.

Meanwhile, Shilpa’s ‘Bhabiji’ avatar had become so popular that she has returned on screen with a web series titled ‘Controversial Bhabiji’ produced by Markand Adhikari of Adhikari Brothers. Her character in the digital series is modelled just like the one she played on the popular &TV show.
