It’s a season of comebacks on the small screen. Following Gauri Pradhan’s return to TV after five years with ‘Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi’, actress Shilpa Saklani too returns to fiction after a break of five years with Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s ‘Manmarziyan’.
A negative role, the actress calls it her anniversary gift to her husband (Apurva Agnihotri). “My husband has been persuading me to get back to acting for quite sometime, so finally I am doing just that. We will complete 13 years of marriage on June 28 and this is my anniversary gift to him,” she said.
She further added, “The fact that it’s a negative character was enough challenging for me to take it up. Another reason was that I wanted to work with friends. I specially got attracted to this particular offer because it was a negative character and I wanted to come back with something different, also the most important thing was the production house, as I was very clear, if I ever come back I will come back with a production that belongs to a friend and thankfully both Siddharth and his wife Gayatri are dear friends, so it all falls into place!”
Last seen in the seventh season of ‘Bigg Boss’, Shilpa had played a negative role in ‘Kkusum’. Her last fiction outing was ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’.
