Gauahar Khan typically calls out Bigg Boss 15 contestants for his or her unsavoury feedback on the present. On Thursday, she tweeted about Tejasswi Prakash, who age-shamed co-contestant Shamita Shetty.
On Wednesday’s episode of Bigg Boss 15, Tejasswi referred to Shamita as ‘aunty’, making an oblique reference to her age. Following a job, Tejasswi stated “Lo aunty chadh gayi us pe bhi (Aunty is after him as nicely),” referring to Shamita yelling at Karan Kundrra.
In her tweet, Gauahar criticised Tejasswi for her comments and wrote: “Disgusting behaviour. It just keeps getting worse. Calling someone aunty is still proof of your insecurity but ‘chadh gayi uspe’ is sheer filth of someone’s mindset. Shamita was such a sport. You can’t teach dignity, it’s inbuilt. #bb15.”
During a job on the present, Tejasswi’s boyfriend Karan performed the a part of a lodge visitor whereas Tejasswi and Shamita have been assigned the duties of the employees. When Karan, as a visitor, stated that he didn’t like Tejasswi’s therapeutic massage, Shamita took over. This irked Tejasswi, who commented: “It is Karan Kundrra and not Raqesh Bapat. Isse pahele aapne apne task ko kabhi itna seriously nahi liya tha (Before this, you never took your task so seriously).”
During their verbal spat, Tejasswi known as Shamita ‘aunty’, to which she hit again saying: “It’s a task and you have no business calling me an aunty.” Supporting Shamita, her good friend and ex-Bigg Boss housemate Rajiv Adatia advised the media that he is upset with Tejasswi’s behaviour: “Shamita doesn’t look like an aunty. From which angle does she look like an aunty? I didn’t like Tejasswi’s statement.”
On Wednesday, Bipasha Basu, too, known as out Tejasswi for age-shaming Shamita in a tweet: “Age shaming disgustingly, then saying sorry.. beyond pathetic! If this is a winner for anyone or a role model it’s truly sad. If you are insecure, attack your man who makes you feel insecure instead of pulling other women down #biggboss15 #shameful.”
