EXCLUSIVE: Bigg Boss OTT’s Akshara Singh defends her age shaming comment against Shamita Shetty
Bigg Boss OTT contestant Akshara Singh, who got eliminated from the show during weekend ka vaar shared in her interview that she went inside the house with a lot of expectations. Akshara Singh made her acting debut in the 2010 action drama Satyamev Jayate, alongside Ravi Kishan. She then starred in the 2011 family drama Pran Jaye Par Vachan Na Jaye. In an exclusive chat with Bollywood Bubble, the Bhojpuri actress spoke about passing sexist comments on Neha Bhasin, woman card, her connection with Bigg Boss contestants and on age shaming Shamita Shetty.
When we asked Akshara Singh about age shaming Shamita Shetty, she said, “I didn’t do age shaming, not at all. I gave her respect. If you ask me personally, if I will be talking about my mother that means I am combining her with my mother. It means that I’m respecting her, not the other way around. It’s a fact I can’t deny it. I actually saw her in school. When I was in class two I used to hear her songs, so how can I cover it and talk to her in a fake manner.”
She added, “How can I do that. People have moulded the whole situation and given the name of age shaming. I would like to apologise if they understood my conversation as age shaming but that wasn’t my intention at all. I used to respect her but once she started dominating then I started to scream and argue with her because I feel that she is targeting me.”
