Shilpa Shetty has emerged victorious from the UK based reality show Big Brother and since then has been trying to make her second innings with grandeur. While at the house of Big Brother,Shilpa was seen undergoing various racial discriminations and even broke down several times.However all this has made the actress a strong survivor.Shilpa Shetty also met with Queen Elizabeth the second after her victory in the UK.The actress returned to Mumbai and first paid a visit to the Siddhivinayak temple to thank God for his blessings. Shilpa is extremely excited with her victory and claims that it was only because of her fans love that she survived. After her stint in the house of Big Brother, Shilpa has been receiving numerous offers for a book, ads, films and even marriage proposals.
The victory in the Big Brother show is perhaps what Shilpa required as prior to the show the actress has been facing a tough time. Shilpa and her family have had several controversies in the past year.Last year Shilpa's parents Surendra and Sunanda Shetty were charged with extortion after they had allegedly hired gangsters to extort money from a bussinessman.However the charges have still not been proved. Shilpa's family also have a family bussiness for which they have a few factories, they have also been accused of ill treating their factory employees but have denied these charges too.But according to some sources, women employees who work in their factory were being paid below the standard wage level.Shilpa herself has been embroiled in a controversey where she has been linked with her married director Anubhav Sinha.There has been a lot of talk about Shilpa being a home breaker and being the cause for the couple's separation. However Shilpa has time and again denied any affair with Anubhav. Shilpa began her career opposite two of bollywood's biggest superstars currently, Shahrukh Khan and Kajol and she went on to do a spate of several moderately average films. However Shilpa's career never rose to great heights but she was appreciated for her role in 'Phir Milenge'. The actress had not been getting too many offers on the film front too but she does have two films up for release this year. There has also been a lot of specualtion on her marriage plans as most of Shilpa's other female co-stars have already settled down to marital bliss. Shilpa on the contrary still has to find the man of her dreams.
Recently Bobby Khan, a bollywood film promoter claimed that he was Shilpa's agent and helped Shilpa bag the prestigious Endemol deal with Big Brother, but later after Shilpa's victory he was unceremoniously dumped by her.However Shilpa denies these allegations too, stating that Bobby Khan was never her agent. She says "I've been framed. Do you think I am capable of doing what I am accused of?"However controversies aside Shilpa is hoping that the victory in Big Brother will open several new avenues for her in the film industry.
