Shilpa had been a part of the judges' panel on Super Dancer Chapter 4. However, due to the COVID surge in Maharashtra, the shoot of the dance reality show moved out of the state and hence, the actress reportedly decided to stay back with her family. The cases of COVID 19 have been surging over the past few weeks and amid this, the government has been imposing restrictions in the state. Several stars including Shilpa also have been coming forward to help out amid the COVID 19 crisis in India.
