Last night, Bigg Boss 13 had its first torture task and journalist Shefali Bagga became the target of Twitter users after her personal attack on co-contestants Arti Singh and Rashami Desai during a task. On Wednesday’s episode, during the BB Hospital task, Shefali brought up the topic of Aarti’s broken marriage. She also mocked Arti Singh about her age and affairs. Arti Singh got emotional and cried as well.
Needless to say, netizens were quite upset with Shefali Bagga's rather lowbrow and below the belt tactics. While one user wrote, "Shefali Bagga is getting too personal,’’ another Twitter user wrote, "What is this? How can someone comment on anyone's personal life just like for a game that's not fair. Aarti is a strong matured and sensible but that's does not mean anyone comments her personal life it's a shameless thing."
#ShefaliBagga is so vicious!— KΛJÓ¨á„‚âÂÂÂ€ (@Leonotcaprio) October 2, 2019
Ik it was a part of the task but still how can someone stoop so low without hesitating even a bit?
Asking personal questions and commenting on someone's weight so casually as if she was shooting a scrne for a tv serial. Cruel!#BiggBoss13 #BB13
I think celebrities are coming with an agreement to not get hampered their image#ShefaliBagga faked that story to make Aarti & Rashmi stand but they cut their confession part. Shehnaaz's dialogue on Aarti's kids was too cut coz that would hv made it obviously fictional. #BB13— Megha (@roars_loudly) October 3, 2019

Arey, yaar, not watching any TV shows can get darn confusing when stuff like #ShefaliBagga & #Sonakshi trend! I mean, trending CHARACTERS in a SOAP & losers on a 'reality' show... !?!?!? Bhaiyo aur beheno, kitna confusion hota hai.. !— Jyoti Kapur Das (@jkd18) October 3, 2019
Shefali Bagga's partner in task was Punjabi singer Shehnaz Gill, who was also criticised on social media for her repulsive tactical show.
Arti Singh was in a relationship with her co-star Ayaz Khan for three years. However, it did not culminate into marriage. They are good friends and he even supported her when she was unwell.
Bigg Boss 13 premiered on September 29. Apart from Aarti Singh, Rashami Desai, Siddharth Shukla and Shefali Bagga, celebrities like Mahira Sharma, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Dalljiet Kaur, Paras Chabbra and Abu Malik are also participating on the show.
