Shilpa Shetty Kundra made the country proud when she won the global reality show Big Brother. However, even after her success in other spheres of life, Shilpa experienced ups and downs in Bollywood. In 2007 she became a member of Celebrity Big Brother, one of British TV’s largest reality shows. The program had controversies related to race discrimination.
When she remained in the home, Shilpa was a sufferer of racism and bullying by opposite fellow contestants, including Jade Goody, Jo O’Meara, and Danielle Lloyd. Her public disputes with Jade made headlines back then, along with their claimed racist comments, which led to her removal from the program.
After enduring relentless bullying from her fellow competitors on Big Brother, Shilpa Shetty Kundra became emotional. This event happened when Jade and Jackiey joined Big Brother along with their mother, Jack Tweed. Other housemates mocked Shilpa’s accent while they also ridiculed her cooking skills which made Shilpa feel miserable.
However, despite all odds with support from people throughout India and abroad, she won the show who admired how bravely she stayed back for so many weeks without breaking down under pressure. Also, Jade apologized to Shilpa after the reality show ended, and she asserted that she had forgiven her.
