Shilpa Shetty sign now

Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty is having a tough time on the British reality show Big Brother. Lets sign a petition and know the view of Indians on it.



A media watchdog in UK is investigating complaints that some other participants used racist slurs against Shilpa on the show.





Ofcom has received over 2,000 complaints from Channel 4 viewers that Shilpa was called a "dog" and "The Indian".





Shilpa is one of the nine participants on the show and joined it two weeks ago. The show chronicles the activities of the participants after they are locked in a house together. The complainants have taken exception to the fact that other participants made fun of Shilpa's accent.





Also one of the contestants, who has since been voted out of the show, used to repeatedly refer to her as the 'The Indian', something which has irked Shilpa's fans. Big Brother is broadcaster Channel 4's most popular programme and Shilpa has signed a Rs 3-crore deal to appear in the show.





The television watchdog in London said it had received 2000 complaints from viewers that the star was a victim of racist bullying, the reports said. Fans, upset by the racist behaviour, have voiced their concerns on Internet forums.





Shilpa is one of nine celebrities whose activities are being filmed after they were locked in a house together on January 2. A spokeswoman for Ofcom said, "Quite a lot of websites have been discussing the issue and urging people to get in contact with us."





Viewers believe that Shilpa has been targeted by Jade Goody, a previous contestant on the non-celebrity version of the show, whose gaffe-prone persona turned her into a tabloid star, Danielle Lloyd, a former beauty queen, and Jo O'Meara, who was in short-lived pop group S Club 7.



Goody has said Shilpa 'makes my skin crawl', while Lloyd has called her 'a dog'. O'Meara refused to eat a chicken roasted by Shilpa, because she claimed it was too spicy and undercooked, prompting Shilpa to burst into tears.
