    What a ridiculous post. Stop taking life so seriously. All these shows are pre-planned. What do you know about Shilpa Shetty that makes you say she is sweet and sensible? Let me guess. You saw that on a silly so-called reality TV show?

    Almost all of it is made up. I know you can watch the streaming feeds live, but that does not discount the fact that the characters can be ‘told’ to do so. After all, unless there is infighting/groupism, will such a reality show run? Let me guess. No.

    However, if you’re posting this just to get hits, then you will get a lot of them.

    Shilpa Shetty gets bullied in the Big Brother House – Videos…

    As many of you may already know, Indian film actress Shilpa Shetty is currently living in the Big Brother (UK) house. She has reportedly been paid a whopping sum of money by channel 4 to participate in the reality show. I started watching this series o…

    lol anand…if your so clueless about these matters i suggest you refrain from commenting..unless u enjoy making an arse of yourself

    Oh, yes, I’m clueless. There is nothing pre-planned. Would you watch a show, in which all the characters are ‘nice’ to each other? I’m not saying that every line comes from the script. All that the producers and the channel care about is TRPs. Remember, there is nothing like ‘bad’ publicity. Controversies are generated to keep the viewer interested. It’s a common trend these days. A large proportion of ‘reality shows’ these days have had some sort of controversy, to generate interest.

    But yes, I’m clueless.

    dude its all show biz.
    After all she was paid all that sum of money, and shud know priorly how the show has been always. So it was a risk she had to take.

    N another thing, she dint even migle wid those ppl be4….she stood out instead. Fair enuf if u support her now but shez got a mouth to answer back too rite? cant she?

    anyways the show got what it wanted. One bollywood actress in big brother n whole of india(almost) and rest of we indo folks round this planet turn our attention to this show. Very good business strategy !:)

    shez gotto answer back !!!! omgg its embarasing for WE indians in UK !!!!!! sheeesh whats that girl up ! how STUPID she accepted her faults!

    WIMP ! simple answer them back !!!! there is nuthing bigger than self respect!
    If u dont do that then no one wud give u a damn ! SIMPLE as that.

    Being quite proves u DUMB and not “high”. So if shez smart she did fight back rather than leaving the issue unfinished.

    I am commenting here, partly because I feel there is too much attention this show is getting as a result of this controversy, which, quite frankly it does not deserve and partly because I can see some extremely ignorant comments by some of the commentors.

    OK First of all – the show is a reality show, which as Anand says is pre-planned to some extent, but not fully; as is the case with most reality shows, otherwise where’s the fun? However, some of the behavior is pre-decided. That explains the hostility.

    But Anand’s comment on taking life less seriously is remarkably stupid. The point which the blogger made in this post is against racism and not the hostility. What the participants indulged in was ‘subtle and ‘controlled’ racism. This is something, which, even if it advised by the show to garner publicity is something which cannot be supported. Just because it proves that the prejudices which people talk about not existing in the developed countries, DO Exist, and exist in substantial proportions.

    I have no interest on commenting on Shilpa’s lack of a suitable retort to the bullying and racism, because that’s not my intention; but I would like to just appreciate the author’s effort in this case because it’s well-meant. Racism exists in different forms in different countries. In India it exists in the form of girls wanting to be fairer than their friends to get a good husband, and men advertising for fair and homely wives in the matrimonials. The class-system still exists in the remote hinterland, let’s not deny it. What this show has unknowingly done is expose the fact that all countries are prejudiced in some way or the other, and the quicker they introspect and find the reason for that, the better.

    I do agree with sandy! Racism is happening everywhere, worse in India (the class-system). Even in Malaysia (we have indian-malaysian race), the class-system is still being practiced by some cartoons. I have a doctor working with me once, he would treat the “high-class” indian like gods but to those lower cast, he didnt even want to see even in life & death situation. This is happening right infront of my eyes and I dislike him very much. Racism is reality and that show is all about it, I suppose!

    Right and wrong (in my opinion). Racism is everywhere. True.

    “You cant tolerate it in a telivision show. Its equivalent to condoning and indirectly encouraging such behavior”. Wrong!

    To be honest I couldn’t care where the persons creed, colour, culture, etc, etc. To me, there are good people, bad people, and people in the middle.

    To watch Jade, Danielle, and Jo go at Shilpa is simply laughable. Who the hell in their right mind would want to emulate any of these three? I have a 7 year old daughter who saw these three highly “infoo-inf-enshal” girls go at Shilpa and even she told me that is wrong, they’re not very nice.

    What annoys me most with cross culture disagreements is the “is it because i’m ******* (insert your own colour, etc here)” (and its variants) one liner which is used far to often in todays society. This I believe is more damaging to to ones colour, race, etc than television

    she won!! LOL.

  11. hi

    wow, i can’t believe those stupid racists. but shilpa got the last laugh. she won while all of the racist’s carers are ruined, they got death threats, one of them died!, one of them got badly beat up, while shilpa’s carer is better than ever! that definitely shows that what comes around goes around! btw, i’m not saying that that raceist deserverd to die, i’m just pointing out all these horrible things that happened after they treated shilpa this way. just shows that you better watch out after you treat someone with cruelty, karma!

  12. hi

    oh, people should stop trying to change the subject and pointing out that India has racism, to try making Briton look better. the fact of the matter is that there was racism in this show, and someone got badly hurt from it! this just goes to show how ignorant many people from Briton are, my cousins went to Briton and when they did, they said they got stares and a couple of rude comments. that spells out racism. i’m not saying all of them are raciest, but many are. and it’s really bad there in the UK. and not all Indian girls try to look fairer, only some, few actually. most of us are proud of our culture and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else or be anyone else. i am soooo lucky i wasn’t born white! now don’t go on saying i am raciest because i am not, i am accepting of all people and cultures, i’m just happy i’m not white or any other color except my own because i am proud of my self! thats my point of view and my opinion along, with several hundred million other people.
