Television actor Shilpa Shinde, who was one of the most loved contestants on the 11th season of Bigg Boss, plans to do something special with the prize money that she won after winning the controversial reality TV show.
The Bigg Boss prize money she took home was somewhere between Rs 40,00,000 and Rs 45,00,000, after some deductions during the course of the show from the actual prize money of Rs 50,000,00.
Shinde, who is popular for her stint as Angoori Bhabhi in Bhabhi Ji Ghar Pe Hai, is planning to invest all her money in a ‘creche’ for the elderly.
“I always had thought that if I ever win the show, I will only use the prize money for other people, in my dad’s memory. And now that I have won it, I want to make a place for old people. Yes, a creche… I have seen many children (working couples, daughters or sons) have to hire a helper who looks after their parents. Instead of this, they can send their parents to the creche where they will meet like-minded and same age group people who they can chat with, discuss and play games,” Shinde told The Indian Express.
Earlier, it was rumoured that Shinde would be using the prize money of Bigg Boss to invest in a property in Malad’s Evershine Nagar. However, she later went on to clarify that the prize money was not appropriated towards that purchase.
Well, that’s indeed a great gesture on the actor’s part as her initiative might bring some positive change. Way to go girl.
