The Shetty sisters – Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Shamita Shetty, have always been each other's pillar of strength. They have always stood up for each other. Recently, when Shamita Shetty was called arrogant and fake in the reality show, Bigg Boss 15, her elder sister, Shilpa, came in support of her and penned a lovely post for her.
Recently, when Neha Dhupia had asked Shamita about her Bigg Boss 15 journey, Shamita had shared that it was an extremely emotional journey with lots of ups and downs. She had further added that she had felt depressed and extremely strong. However, she had kept playing her game with utmost honesty.
On November 29, 2021, Shilpa took to her Instagram handle and posted a video of Shamita from the special episode. Alongside it, Shilpa penned how her sister, Shamita, has been playing the game with grace, and people are mistaking her 'stand' as her arrogance. Shilpa wrote:
"Appreciation post! This is for my brave soul, a fighter, my sister. It’s sad to see how some are misinterpreting Shamita’s behaviour as arrogant because “they think” she’s privileged or is fake, and she doesn’t have an opinion (sometimes too opinionated actually), or doesn’t use her head only heart, which is absolutely untrue/rubbish! I say this without any bias and not just as a sister, but as a BIGG BOSS viewer too."
Shilpa further added that Shamita is being viewed as someone privileged. However, if this were the case, she wouldn't have been in the show trying to mark her footprint. She wrote:
"I’ve never commented on the show, but while a lot of people have been commenting (good /bad / ugly) I felt like saying, being privy to this format as a participant and former Host; I feel Shamita is being accosted for having a heart / being emotional and viewed as privileged by some, but IF she was, she wouldn’t be in this show trying to carve a niche for herself professionally. I can vouch for one thing that what you see of her is as ‘REAL’ as can get. That’s her USP, she’s her authentic self. Don’t know about these so called ‘games’ and ‘strategies’; all I know is everyone is different and she reacts the way she’s conditioned. We were not born into wealth, both of us have struggled and worked our way up, uphold our middle class values, dignity being of paramount importance… that’s the upbringing."
Shilpa also added that whether Shamita wins the game or not, she has left a mark of grace on millions of hearts, and she is incredibly proud of her sister.
"Whether she wins this game or not, this has got to be said, “NO GAME IN LIFE OR ON TV CAN BE AT THE COST OF LOSING ONE’S DIGNITY“. She shows that in her GAME, she’s shown grace under fire and my heart swells with pride as a sister. The show will come to an end but the memories will stay.. And, Shamita will be remembered as a Tigress and someone who has left her mark on millions of hearts with her Honesty, Dignity, Integrity, and Class. You go, my Tunki, you are and will always be a #showstoppershamita. While she’s in the House and I miss her terribly. Guys, do support our Queen of Hearts and show her some love cause, she deserves."
We love Shilpa's appreciation post for Shamita!
