Shakti Kapoor is known as baddie in Hindi film industry and makers of Bigg Boss 5, which is famous for cat fights, had thought his presence would boost the TRP. Even viewers were expecting him to show his villainous tricks and play with other female housemates. But nothing seemed to happen from his side.
Shakti Kapoor failed to show his jadoo (magic) on the show Bigg Boss 5. The actor, whose images is tarnished in the industry due to the sting operation of a TV channel, seemed to be trying to rectify his image with his decent behaviour with 13 female contestants. Probably, this might have forced both viewers and makers of the show to ditch him.
However, Shakti Kapoor has been blamed of playing politics with the Bigg Boss housemates. Miss Afghanistan Vida Samadzai, who was once slapped on her butt by him, deserted him for indulging in bitching and back-biting. Pooja Bedi was also repeatedly pointing out that he was not behaving like a gentleman, a good father, husband and family man.
