After weeks of allegations of brazen biases in favour of Siddharth Shukla, Bigg Boss is now facing extraordinary allegations of defaming one of its contestants prompting many to question just how low the makers of the reality show will stoop. This was after the eagle-eyed among social media users detected at least three instances broadcast in the last few days to highlight how the makers of Bigg Boss had desperately tried to defame one of its own contestants. It’s not a coincidence that Asim was one of the contestants who Siddharth had physically assaulted during this season. Far from evicting Siddharth from the show for breaking the rules, the makers had even allegedly forced Salman Khan to defend Siddharth, who was allowed to raise his voice in front of the Bharat actor.
What has now triggered an intense social media debate was the use of language by Bigg Boss in one of its promotional videos during Wednesday night’s episode. While plugging a video of Asim Riaz’s conversation with Shefali Bagga, Rashami Desai and Madhurima Tuli, Bigg Boss asked if Asim was trying to fire Shefali Jariwala by placing the rifle on someone else’s shoulder. One fan wrote, “I noticed from past 3 days that #bb13 is trying to defame asimriaz 1.they showed twisted promo of Sid crying due to Asim 2.asim plotting dirty but it was usual conversation 3.asim “dusro ke kandho pe banduk rakh Goli chla rha he”

In another promo broadcast on Wednesday night, Bigg Boss asked if rival contestants were trying to cause fissures in Siddharth’s relationship with Shehnaaz, also known as Punjab’s Katrina Kaif. It remains to be seen if it was another hype created by the makers to boost the TRP.
