Bigg Boss contestant Shamita Shetty got extremely emotional after her superstar sister Shilpa Shetty delivered a very special message. On the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, Shilpa sent a special message to her little sister.
In the message, Shilpa talked about how she, too, was a part of Big Brother UK.” Big Brother ya Bigg Boss tapak hi jaate hain humari zindagi mein. Pata nahi kya Rishta hai. tum jaanti ho ki waqt padne par hum khud hi ek doore ke bhai behen ban hi jaate hain. Toh mere bhai, apna khayal rakhna, strong rehna. Kyuki agar tum strong ho toh main strong hu, mummy strong hain (Big Brother and Bigg Boss just fell into our lives. Don’t know what this relationship is. But you know how we play a brother’s role in each others’ lives when the need arises. So my brother, take care of yourself. Because if you are strong then I am strong and our mother is strong). Mummy is good, we are all missing you. Sending you lots of love and aise hi khelte rehna,” she said.
After listening to this sweet message, Shamita couldn’t control herself and started crying. In an earlier episode, Shamita opened up about her journey and revealed how difficult it was for her to live under her elder sister’s shadow. “I have had a very difficult journey of 20-25 years in the industry, I am more confident as a person now. People know me as Shamita ‘Shetty’, Shilpa’s sister. It’s a protective shadow, I am lucky to have that, but people don’t know the real me.”
Shamita also expressed her apprehension about joining the show at a time when Shipa’s husband was arrested for his alleged connection in a porn racket. “Phir itna kuch ho gaya aur maine definitely socha ki shayad iss waqt Bigg Boss ke ghar ke andar jaana sahi nahi hoga but commitment kar di thi maine aur ek baar jo maine commitment karti hoon toh main khud ki bhi nahi sunti (But then so much happened that I definitely thought that maybe this is not the right time to go inside the Bigg Boss house but I had already committed to the show and once I commit, nothing can stop me from honouring it),” she had said at the show’s launch.
