Shiv Thakare gained recognition by participating in Bigg Boss 16, where he emerged as the first runner-up. Since then, he has continued to make waves in the entertainment industry. After winning titles like Aapla Manus, Mr Unstoppable, King of Reality Shows, and Reality Star from loved ones, Shiv Thakare added one more feather to his cap as he has been crowned Rockstar by Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa judge Arshad Warsi. There are many more accolades to come for sure in his long journey ahead.
Last week, Shiv's friends from his hometown, Amravati, visited the set to surprise him. The latest news that we hear is that Shiv's sister and Grandmother will appear this week. Shiv's sister and Grandmother will be coming to celebrate Bhaubheej on the show.
This was Diwali week. While all of India was celebrating Diwali with family, Shiv Thakare was racing with time to visit his family at his hometown in Amaravati and rehearse for Jhalak as well.

Sharing about juggling between work and family responsibilities, Shiv Thakare said, "This was Diwali week, and everyone was celebrating with their family. I was sitting at my Mumbai house alone; that feeling was killing me. So, I decided to go and visit my family for one day, but I couldn't cheat on my work either, so I gave more time for my rehearsal. On the night before Diwali, I finished my rehearsal and ran straight to the airport for my flight to Amaravati. After spending a beautiful Diwali day with my Aai-Baba, Aaji and all, I took a late-night train to reach on time for the Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa episode shoot. I did it. But, in all this, I got a stomach infection and was dancing in pain. After hearing comments from the judges, though, all my tiredness and pain is gone."
