Shilpa Saklani rose to prominence after appearing in Ekta Kapoor's superhit show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. She'd achieved overnight success.

Shilpa, on the other hand, has received a lot of hate comments from aunties who put her on a pedestal and hailed her as a'sanskari bahu' of 'Tulsi Virani' (the name of the protagonist in the show).

Shilpa Saklani, who has turned Vlogger with her husband, Apurva Agnihotri, for their YouTube channel, Awesome Agnihotris, recently revealed in her latest Vlog how she got the role of 'Ganga' in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Shilpa revealed that her debut show, Ek Tukda Chaand Ka, ended when she was approached by Balaji for a project.

Shilpa revealed that she realised her character was introduced as the bahu of the new generation in the show during the narration. She revealed that she would be on the show the next day as 'Ganga,' while others were auditioning. Shilpa went on to say that after her episode aired, she was surrounded by people who all knew who she was.

Shilpa went on to say that she had suffered a lot of abuse from her aunties. They used to come yelling at her for her clothing choices. Shilpa mentioned that her aunties would point it out and tell her not to wear such clothes.

She was reported to have said: "The show altered the course of our lives. Don't bother with logon ka pehchanna. Gaaliyaan ki kaafi mili. 'Arre what are you wearing?' aunties would scream when they saw me. Ganga, you are.' I had to convince them that I am Shilpa in real life. It was a major issue, and aunties would chastise me, saying, 'Tum aise kapde pehen ke mat ghumo tum Ganga ho.'"

Shilpa is currently enjoying the motherhood phase with her five-month-old daughter, Ishani Agnihotri.
