Channel 4 and TV regulator Ofcom have had more than 21,000 complaints about treatment of Shetty. Other contestants have made fun of the A-list Bollywood actress’s name, her eating habits and her Indian background. She was called a “dog”. In Indian society educated people don’t use word “dog” for women.

However according to the BBC news, Channel 4 has denied claims that Celebrity Big Brother contestant Shilpa Shetty has suffered racist bullying.

There had been a “cultural and class clash” between three other housemates and the Indian star, the channel said.

According to Shetty’s mother, Sunanda – “Her daughter was tough and she would be able to handle the situation.“.

I haven’t seen the show so I can’t comment more here. Or is it a publicity stunt? What do you think?
