Bigg Boss 11 winner actress turned politician Shilpa Shinde is receiving a lot of flak on social media ever since she supported Navjot Singh Sidhu. Recently, when Shilpa came out in support of Sidhu over Pulawama attack comment, she was trolled her mercilessly by social media users and few of them even threatened to rape her.
After facing massive backlash on social media, Sidhu is facing ban from entering in Mumbai’s Film City premises imposed by the Federation of Western India Cine Employees. Shilpa Shinde became a household name after portraying character of Angoori Bhabhi on &TV show ‘Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain’
She strongly reacted on Sidhu getting banned from shooting the comedy show.
“I am totally against the new phenomenon of banning anyone whose views you don’t concur with. Sadly, CINTAA and other industry bodies are equally complicit in this. Everyone has the right to occupation; you can’t deny me the right to earn my livelihood. In the same vein, I also bat for the rights of Pakistani artists to work in Bollywood, purely on the basis of talent. I have been victim of this ban culture, so know what’s wrong with it,” Shilpa Shinde was quoted as saying by IWMBuzz.
“Also, why was everyone after him to say something bad about Pakistan. He hit the nail on the head by saying that, at the end of the day, issues can only be threshed out on the peace table,” Shilpa added.
Shilpa’s comment didn’t go well with certain section of people who trolled her brutally and some even went on to threaten her with rape consequences.
However, Shilpa who joined the Congress party earlier this month, said that she is planning to take legal action against these faceless people who threatened her online. She said, “I am going to take legal action. It is high time the authorities stepped in and cracked down on such elements who have also attacked several women journalists.”
