The ravishing Shilpa Shetty has been facing insults in plenty on the UK reality show 'Big Brother' and that has caught world's attention now. In spite of being called a"f*****g Paki" (by participant Jack Tweed), a "dog" (by Danielle Lloyd ) and "that Indian" (by Jackie Budden) in the sarcastic taunting sense on the show, Shilpa has maintained a dignified silence.
On being victimized of racism, her spokesman and publicist Dale Bhagwagar says that "It's racism. She's being targeted for her Asian origin. But look at the positive side. Most UK people are sympathizing with her".
Dale is extremely confident that Shilpa will not let such setbacks hamper her chances on the show. He further adds, "Shilpa is a very strong-willed person, while all these brickbats are nothing but a result of insecurity of other participants. If not, they wouldn't have even bothered to make her the main topic of discussion on the show".
Yes, Shilpa has really made the Big Brother participants INSECURE.
