Shilpa Shinde has been in the headlines ever since she has won Bigg Boss 11. And while the lady is still enjoying her triumph in the popular reality show, her recent absence from housemate Arshi Khan's starry bash has got the town talking.
Former BB11 contestant Arshi Khan, recently hosted a grand party which was attended by all the Bigg Boss 11 contestants including Vikas Gupta, Sabyasachi Satapathy, Priyank Sharma, Mehjabi Siddiqui, Akash Dadlani and Jyoti Kumari.
Shilpa's absence from the party led to several theories about her terms with Arshi Khan post BB11.
While several speculations were being made why Shilpa gave the bash a miss, the BB11 winner chose to put all the rumors to rest and said that she isn't a party animal.
Shinde added that there was no point in doing a formality and chose to miss it.
"There is no reason for not attending the party. In fact, I am not a party animal at all. My first party post-Bigg Boss was when Pawan Kumar simply dragged me to the party. I couldn't say no because I have known him for many years, from my first project Bhabhi. So it was like a home party for me. Also, just because I have won Bigg Boss, I cannot throw attitude for no reason and have the starry nature. I am not like that. I haven't attended many parties in all these years. So that's why. I was out til late that day. So after coming back, I really didn't feel going to the party and what's the point in doing a formality," Shilpa told Times of India.
"There were some things that happened in the house that has been a bad patch but I don't want to sulk about it. I am genuinely not a party animal. Honestly speaking at the first go I even forgot that there was a party and I was out till late so when I came back and remembered about the party, it was already late and I didn't feel like going. That's all. There was nothing else about it," she added.
Interestingly, Arshi and Shilpa's off and on relation inside the Bigg Boss 11 house was quite an entertaining element of the show.
The two ladies, who were the best of friends in the initial weeks of the show, turned out to be arch rivals later.
In fact, neither Shilpa nor Arshi left a stone unturned to torment each other on the show.
We wonder if the two will continue their catfight after the show or will Shilpa and Arshi will have cordial relations just like other contestants.
