It’s time to acknowledge that, in front of the camera, Indian cinema and even the TV industry are a little dramatic. Many events, however, show their lives are nothing less than the drama itself. Here, we have curated some of the Indian emerging TV industry’s biggest controversies.
Vindu Dara Singh was arrested in 2013, for spot-fixing in cricket

Shilpa Shinde’s exit from Bhabhi Ji Ghar Pe Hain
Shilpa Shinde has made the show “Bhabhiji Ghar Pe Hain” one of the most successful Indian TV sitcoms. Her Angoori Bhabhi character became very famous. Shilpa left the show in 2016, accusing the showrunners of unprofessional work ethics. “She said,” They forced me to come to work when I was sick. You are unable to treat me badly. I am so sad. I don’t think I’m going to go back again to do the show. “The producers of the show have filed a case against Shilpa Shinde accusing her of breach of contract and unprofessional behaviour towards the show.”
“If she stopped shooting with us citing health problems such as migraine, they said,” If she stopped shooting with us, then it’s shocking that she is medically fit to consider taking up another show.
Since she is the one who has consistently broken the contract, we have given her a legal notice. Finally, Shilpa left the show and Shubhangi Atre was named by the makers as a successful replacement for the role of Angoori Bhabhi.
