Shakeela expressed her belief that Pallavi was merely putting on an act to gain popularity on the show.
The seventh installment of Bigg Boss Telugu hit the screens on September 3, with Telugu superstar Nagarjuna reprising his role as the host for the fifth consecutive time. The show is currently being broadcast on Star Maa and is available for streaming on Disney+ Hotstar. With the premiere, the stage welcomed 14 contestants into the house, and the reality show is now cruising into its third week.
After Kiran Rathore's exit in the first week, the subsequent eviction saw actress and politician Shakeela leave the show. In a recent interview on Bigg Boss Buzz, Shakeela opened up about her journey within the Bigg Boss house and offered her candid opinions on her fellow contestants. However, she did not mince words when it came to her assessment of Pallavi Prashanth, whom she labeled as fake. Shakeela expressed her belief that Pallavi was merely putting on an act to gain popularity on the show, suggesting that his portrayal of a small-town farmer was insincere.
Pallavi Prashanth has been the subject of scrutiny since the show's first week, with fellow contestants accusing him of playing the sympathy card by emphasizing his farmer's son persona during conflicts. Many housemates believed that he was feigning vulnerability to garner sympathy from others.
Pallavi Prashanth, a well-known YouTuber and the son of a farmer, had long aspired to participate in the show. The authenticity of his demeanor had already been questioned by some contestants, and Shakeela's interview appears to have reinforced these doubts.
The makers of Bigg Boss Telugu 7 have made substantial efforts to ensure the success of this season, especially after the lukewarm response to the previous installment. They have introduced a fresh theme called 'Ulta Pulta,' promising substantial deviations from past seasons. Thus far, the season has elicited mixed reactions from the audience, with several contestants already making waves on social media.
