Shinde met actor Romit Raj on the set of TV show Maayka (2007–2009). The two started dating each other soon afterwards. They were engaged to be married in 2009 but the wedding was called off when Shinde was unable to meet the demands of Raj and his family.

Shinde went into depression when her father died in 2013 of Alzheimer’s disease. Her father did not want her to take up acting as a profession. Shinde said, “He never wanted me to get into acting but when I insisted he did give me a year’s time and I became an actress. I was there with him day and night in the last couple of months and now he is gone.”

Shinde made her television debut in 1999. She came into the spotlight for her role in the serial Bhabhi (2002–08).

Shinde's breakthrough role was Koyal Narayan in SAB TV's sitcom Chidiya Ghar opposite Paresh Ganatra. Shinde quit the show in March 2013 due to problems in her personal life and was replaced by Shubhangi Atre, who played the part for a year. Atre had to leave the show when Shinde decided to return in June 2014 but in September of the same year, Shinde decided to quit again. She said, "I was promised a lot of things and told that the character will have an interesting graph. However, the producer has failed to keep his promise. Since I wasn't too happy with my track, I decided to quit the show." Shinde was permanently replaced by Baal Veer actress Aditi Sajwan.

In January 2015, it was reported that Shinde had been approached to play the lead role in &TV's new sitcom Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai!. She was initially cast to play a glamorous neighbour Anita Mishra (eventually played by Saumya Tandon) but had to play the simple housewife, Angoori Tiwari, when actress Rashami Desai, who had had been cast to play Angoori, opted out due to personal reasons. Shinde became a household name with her portrayal of Angoori Bhabhi in Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai!, but she quit in March 2016 after having several issues with the makers and accusing them of mentally torturing her. Shinde again was replaced by Shubhangi Atre in April 2016, who had also replaced her in Chidiya Ghar in 2014. Atre cited this fact as a mere coincidence.
