Bigg Boss: Age-shaming and Bigg Boss contestants go hand in hand, nothing has changed yet

Bigg Boss is in its 16th season, and the drama is as intense as it has been in previous seasons. Bigg Boss is notorious for the age-shaming that occurs inside the house, and it appears that this will continue indefinitely. MC Stan was seen commenting on Archana Gautam in the current season. ‘Basti Ki Aunty,’ he said. Many contestants have been subjected to age-related remarks over the years.

She said, “I don’t appreciate such age-shaming comments. It shouldn’t matter whether a person is 20 or 40.” Former BB contestant Kashmera Shah, who has faced similar age-shaming comments, slammed Akshara on social media.
