‘She Had Her Reasons To Take Part’, Shilpa Shetty On Sister Shamita’s Past ‘Bigg Boss’ Stint

Bigg Boss veteran, Shamita Shetty has been confirmed as a contestant on Big Boss OTT, the latest iteration of the infamous reality TV show.  

Her last stint with the Big Boss house ended prematurely with her having to leave the show in order to be a part of her sister Shilpa Shetty’s wedding to Raj Kundra.  

#ShamitaShetty stood on her commitment, despite so much of family turmoil going on in the background {Raj Kundra Case}.

What makes things interesting is the inauspicious timing of her participation’s announcement, as it coincides with the recent spate of accusations against her brother-in-law, Raj Kundra, who has been undergoing investigations conducted by the Mumbai police regarding an adult film racket.

There has been a lot of noise that the Shetty family has had to endure, and Shamita, especially, may have a particularly tough time in the notoriously scandalous Bigg Boss house that is bursting with drama 24/7. 

All that the showrunners are looking for is juicy gossip and the younger Shetty sibling may just be targeted for her family’s sustained presence in the news in connection to the porn scandal.

This scandal has taken over their lives right now, and it reminds us of the time when Shilpa Shetty had commented on Shamita’s 2009 stint with Bigg Boss 3.   

“Ok! It’s out, my sister Shamita is in the Bigg Boss house. Took the next flight to Bombay from London when she told me she was going in, I scurried to spend the last two days before she left, tried to dissuade her; considering she’ll be away for three months if she lasts.” 

We wonder if she would have reached out to Shamita and offered her the same sage advice this time around considering the hullabaloo around them. 

It does feel like it could go either way as the Bigg Boss house presents Shamita with an opportunity to set facts straight, or she could just choose to stay mum about this whole thing. Either way, it will be interesting to see how things unfold in the house.

What if I will say #Shamitashetty & #KaranJohar came on #BiggBossOTT to clear their image and change the perception of audience towards them & their family members.

Back in 2009 Shilpa’s blog entry read, “She had her reasons to take part, felt it was a great opportunity to test herself and her level of patience. Must say she’s been very brave ‘cause trust me, it takes a lot of gumption considering she’s an introvert and very private.”

It’s truly a brave decision from the younger Shetty sister. Let’s also not forget that in 2009, Shilpa Shetty herself had been a participant in Celebrity Big Brother, the British version of the Indian Bigg Boss franchise.

At the premiere, Shamita spoke as tactfully as a politician, opening up about her hesitation regarding this participation without directly saying anything about the case involving Raj Kundra. 

This skill might come in handy as she goes deeper into the Bigg Boss OTT campaign.
