Okay, I admit. I have been taken into this whole hype too! I really didn’t want to do a post on this Big Brother fiasco. But I have some “thoughts” on it, which need an outlet. So you guys need to bear with me!!
I was watching the footage of a number of episodes last night. Frankly speaking, I don’t think that Jade was being “Racist” anywhere..I admit that she was very rude and quite a pig head in many instances, but racism is something different altogether. I didn’t see her calling Shilpa by a racist name even once. Just because she starts disliking Shilpa (who happens to be an Indian) doesn’t mean that she is racist!! The volume of media coverage that Shilpa Shetty is getting- is simply brilliant!
It’s not like Shilpa represents a common man on the streets on India. For God’s Sake, she is being paid Rs. 3 crore to enter into this competition. I was doing some Maths in my head before sleeping and this is what I think – I don’t think that she gets more than Rs. 1 crore (which is the upper limit for a middle tier actress like her) per film. So, if she is getting Rs. 3 crore for this stupid reality show, then she is one hell of a businesswoman! Mind you- she doesn’t need to invest 9 months or whatever on this show either- it will last only for a couple of weeks and she pockets such a huge amount. It is her choice to live with ordinary people in an ordinary way.
I don’t remember which episode was it where it is shown that she tells Jermaine that she is not used to being treated like this..that whenever she enters a room in India, everybody gets up and they address her as “Ma’am” or “Madam”! Obviously, this spoilt brat can’t digest the fact that her housemates are not giving her the princess treatment. To quite some extent, this ordinary treatment is scaring her!! She can be seen commenting that wherever she goes in India, people want to take her autograph and that she would be petrified if people stop recogniing her! Who the hell is she? Some female who is pretty and has 10,000 flop movies? How many of us actually care about her as an actress?
She says that she represents the country- Yeah right! With 3 servants, 3 chauffers, 1 hair dresser, 1 make up man, and one chaperone who goes with her on all her shoots!! Oh, and the bodyguard too 🙂 She is so precious, isn’t it?
Okay, let me shut up here and show you some footage. The first one is my favorite- The oxo cube fight. I think both Jade and Shilpa are behaving in a stupid manner. So what if Jade ate some extra cubes? What’s the big deal Shilpa lady? I don’t think that’s a reason for Shilpa to go and confront her housemates!! Not like the cubes had her name written on them.
NEXT ONE: Hindu Feng Shui???
My dear friends, since when has Hinduism started recommending Feng Shui?? Shetty girl keeps telling her housemates that she wants to sleep on a particular bed (that happens to belong to someone else) because it is a “Hindu Feng Shui” thing??! Brilliant! Now we have the whole world thinking this 🙂 Another thing, it’s not like she will die of a heart attack if she doesn’t sleep in a particular direction for a couple of days. Later, she tells her housemates that she will sleep on the floor. Now Shilpa, let me ask you one thing dear- Why did you create so much of nautanki if you so wanted to sleep on the floor? Come to my house..You can sleep on the carpet 😉
NEXT: Shilpa is the Dog?
This one is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. Danielle calls Shilpa a dog!! Whoa! What can a reality TV show do to increase their ratings? The entire thing looks so set up!! By the way, I didn’t know that Shilpa is such a good actress 24/7. This should revive her sinking Bollywood career.
What kind of accent does Danielle have? That’s definitely not British! Cockney Irish mix? Just curious.
NEXT: Shilpa Says ” Yes, it is racist”
Someone please give me a stick. I feel like beating up this lady. I actually agree with Cleo here..don’t think it’s anything racist. The girls just don’t like Shilpa..nothing racist in there…
I know a lot of Indians are going to give me flak here for talking like this. But I think that this whole thing is stanged. Shilpa is a brilliant actress. Definitely deserves an Oscar now!!! Great Job.
