Bigg Boss 15: Karan Kundrra Calls Shamita Shetty ‘Aunty’, Her Mom Requests Salman Khan to Speak Against Age-Shaming

Bigg Boss 15 latest news: Seems like Bigg Boss 15 has become synonymous with sexism, violence, discrimination, and age-shaming. In the latest episode of the show, popular TV actor Karan Kundrra age-shamed fellow contestant Shamita Shetty after an argument during a task. This irked many people on social media including actor Kashmera Shah and Shamita’s mom Sunanda Shetty who went on to request host Salman Khan to reprimand people for making such remarks in the show.

Addressing Shamita as ‘aunty’, Karan said ‘vo aunty ko samjha dena’ after assuming that she called him and a few others ‘classless’. It was not Shamita but Nishant Bhatt who called a few contestants ‘classless’ but he didn’t clarify this to Karan and let him go furious over Shamita. Interestingly, many social media users pointed out how Karan was in a relationship with Anusha Dandekar who was a few years older than him. The actor himself is 37 while Shamita is 42.

Addressing the same on Twitter, Kashmera wrote, “Though I like his advice #karankundra I wish he had not called @ShamitaShetty aunty. What”s this age bashing happening all over again. “Aunty” is much younger than many in spirit and fire and rationality and may actually lift the #bb15 trophy this year.
