Last year in October, Nirupam had welcomed Hasin Jahan, the model and estranged wife of Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami, into the party.
Shinde had acted in popular comedy series Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain before she quit the show on an unpleasant note. She had alleged harassment by the makers of the show. She was later replaced by another Marathi actress Shubhangi Atre for the role of famous Angoori Bhabhi in the show.
