Shubhangi Atre is one of the most popular actresses on Indian television. Her role of Angoori bhabi in the sitcom Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain! is so famous that many people remember her by her character name. Recently, Shubhangi Atre reveals that she has been approached for the dance reality show Nach Baliye 10 and one of the most controversial reality show Bigg Boss 15. In a recent interview with ET Times, Shubhangi Atre talked about how she coped up with coronavirus and it affected her.
On asking, how badly you are affected with COVID, Shubhangi Atre replied,
Initial 4-5 days were terrible because of fever, fatigue, and no desire to even move. My brother-in-law is a doctor so medication started early, thankfully. Honestly, till last year l didn’t take COVID seriously, until I got it. It’s only then I realised how bad it hits. The second wave is highly contagious and I have no idea where I contracted it from because I took all precautions. People still don’t understand importance of wearing mask, following govt guidelines. I still see people socialising secretly. They don’t follow protocol and then blame the govt. Even within the industry there are people who dismiss the pandemic as something trivial.

Recently, Shubhangi Atre’s debut show Kasturi completed 14 years. Talking about it, Shubhangi Atre became nostalgic, she said,
While quarantining I watched all my ‘Kasturi’ episodes and got emotional. At that time I was very raw and learnt everything on this show.
Due to lockdown. will the shooting of Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, shift to somewhere outside Maharashtra? Shubhanagi Atre added,
They will take the decision after Maharashtra govt’s deadline of the ban on shootings till May 1.
As Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain is one of the longest-running comedy shows, how do you maintain comic timing for long without monotony? Shubhangi replied to it,
That’s because the characters are relatable and not caricature-ish. I hail from Madhya Pradesh and I have seen such people in real. But despite the five years we have never felt monotony. Till we have the energy between actors, we can sustain its success. Though to reinvent new stories within six characters is not a joke.
Shubhangi Atre talked about she has offered reality shows like Nach Baliye 10 and Bigg Boss 15. She continued,
I was offered ‘Nach Baliye’ again this year like last year. They wanted me to participate with my husband Peeyush Poorey and we had started practicing also but we got COVID. Now I am not sure if the show is happening this year. While I am a classical dancer, apne husband ko mujhe kafi nachana padega (laughs). In fact, I got a call for ‘Bigg Boss’ too. Though it’s a good show, I am not sure about it. I am very non-controversial but the show’s format can be abusive sometimes. My daughter is 15, I don’t want to set a wrong example for her.
Shubhangi Atre has worked in many serials like Kasturi, Hawan, Do Hanso Ka Jodaa, Chidiya Ghar, to name a few. She is doing fantastic work as Angoori Bhabi in the serial Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain!
