Karan Kundrra is a well-known television actor. He made his acting debut with the lead role of Arjun Punj in ‘Kitani Mohabbat Hai’. He participated in the dance reality show ‘Zara Nachke Dikha’ in May 2010.
Recently, Karan is one of the members of Bigg Boss 15. It is not long since the show has started, and he is already being looked down on. To say precisely, he age-shammed one of his co-contestants Shamita Shetty after an argument during a task.
Many people on social media including actress Kashmera Shah and Shamita’s mom Sunanda Shetty went on to request the host Salman Khan to reprimand people for making such remarks.
He addressed Shamita as ‘aunty’ saying “vo aunty ko samjha dena” after he assumed that she had called him and a few others ‘classless’. Actually, it wasn’t Shamita but Nishant Bhatt who had called some contestants ‘classless’ but he didn’t clarify this to clarify this Karan and allowed him to go furious over Shamita.
Tweeting about the incident, Kashmera wrote, ” Though I like his advice #karankundra I wish he had not called @ShamitaShetty aunty. What”s this age bashing happening all over again. “Aunty” is much younger than many in spirit and fire and rationality and may actually lift the #bb15 trophy this year.”
Taking to her Instagram, Shamita’s mother also spoke against the remark. She wrote, “Which angle does Shamita look like aunty to Karan Kundrra?? AGE SHAMING and physical attacks NOT ACCEPTABLE and must be curbed with some punitive measure…@beingsalmankhan.”
After the incident, many social media influencers also pointed out how Karan was in a relationship with Anusha Dandekar who was a few years older than him. While Shamita is 42, the actor himself is 37.
