It takes an awesome amount of courage and moral conviction to go to another country, kneel at the doorstep of the family that you have hurt with your racial comments and beg for forgiveness. It takes even more courage if there is a whole Channel 4 telly crew recording every moment of your tear-soaked plea for mercy.
CELEBRITY Big Brother bully Jade Goody is preparing to fly to India in a desperate bid to rescue her doomed telly career. She will jet out with a Channel 4 telly crew in a stage-managed PR stunt.
Jade, 25, left, aims to disprove racism allegations and show she is â€œsorryâ€ for her cruel attacks on sexy Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty. But it will take a miracle for her to win back public support. Big Brother bosses decided on the Indian trip as a way of battling back against criticism of the way they have handled the â€œracismâ€ crisis.
Footage of the Bermondsey big-mouth meeting the people of the nation she insulted could even appear on the final night of Celebrity Big Brother on Sunday. An insider told us: â€œJade is finished here. But at least by travelling to India it will go some way to proving she will to try anything to show how sorry she is.â€
Touching. For just a few moments of madness, this very fine lady has to go through her life with the label of “racist pig”, no matter how many times she says sorry on bended knee. After all, it’s not that she does not respect brown skinned people—-her perfume “Sshh” is manufactured in India using poorly-paid desi labour.
However Indian security agencies have been put on high alert, especially as violent mobs of hoodlums (picture to the left) have taken to the streets, playing their pots and pans, brandishing brooms and singing an old Shilpa Shetty song from “Hathkadi”: “GTH baba, GTH baba, Go to Hell Baby” possibly addressed to Ms. Goody.
According to reliable sources (the same one from whom Cricinfo gets their inside scoops), matters have been complicated because of the involvement of the dreaded Kalinga Sena (a secret society of angry Orissa men founded after Asoka’s massacre at Kalinga), who it seems have taken offence to the fact that Big Brother has no person from Orissa.
Said an irate representative:
Why has Debashish Mohanty not there in the house…he swings both ways just like most people on Big Brother?
With the police deploying massive security around Ms. Shetty’s house in Mumbai where the televised apology is due to take place so as to prevent the slap-happy Kalinigists from coming close to Ms. Goody, you would think that the last thing the hapless Shettys need is more publicity.
Not a chance.
In a moment of rank forgetfulness, Shamita Shetty, Shilpa’s young 27 year old sister, forgot to wear her underclothes in public. [Photo intentionally not provided but linked to]. Or as it is known as in polite circles, she “went commando”. [The origins of this phrase can be somehow traced to Mithun-da’s movie “Commando” and the song “Aae commando tumhen dil ki”—why it is so is a matter of much conjecture.]
Of course we cannot confirm whether this picture is real or doctored because the only independent confirmation the above Mid-day piece got was this where it said: “there is no one apparently more embarrassed that Shamita Shetty, who admitted that the incident did take place but, then confessed that she had no intention to do it”.
We totally understand. If anyone I felt close to was being subject to racial abuse on national TV, even I would forget to wear my Gopal underwear below the lungi.
Needless to say, some people have interpreted this as Shamita’s tribute to her favourite celluloid character, Bulla from Gunda whose motto in life, as we all know, was :”Mera naam hain Bulla, rakhta hoon main khulla”.
Others however have been offended. There have been several public (perceptive readers may think I missed a pun, it was intentional ) interest litigations filed by outraged men, who have declared they will withdraw their PILs only if Shamita comes personally to their houses and apologizes, on bended knee, to them.
After all if Ms. Goody can, why cannot Shamita?

All class – hysterical. Speaking of which, have your t-shirts been printed?
And when are you going to review Guru? Mithun-da is awesome.
Fantastic news. Bollywood comes off age finally. Apology on bended knees- you mean in a crouched position with one knee touching the ground….and wearing a skirt like that….cool cool.
Overall – classic GB.
and a great blog..

As Shilpa rides up on Danielle, Shamita suddenly enters the Big Brother house panting.
Shamita: Shilpa, I was so worried!
(then suddenly notices Danielle)
Shamita: Shilpa, whose blonde is this?
Shilpa: She’s a bitch.
Shamita: Whose bitch is this?
Shamita: Who’s Jade?
Shilpa: Jade’s dead, baby, Jade’s dead.
Hi GB…I have been a regular visitor to your Blogsite and I must congratulate you for taking up most of the matters so passionately which is so close to the heart of millions of Bengalees… But I am a little confused why you chose to keep silent with some of the issues which has been so much under controversies lately…
I am talking about the latest industrialization drive by Buddha Govt in West Bengal and the controversy of Land Acquisition…
Dont you have a stand on this???
@Anonymous: You didnt say what was interesting.
@The Drinker: As soon as I get a decent uncut print of it. Most camera prints are for some reason severely edited.
@Yourfan2: Do I mean that? 🙂
@Daman: Thank you
@Dipanjan: True. Now watch the Kalinga Sena get medieval on Goody’s ass.
@Sugata: I have blogged about Singur before.
Ahhh…Now Jade is out..who is next?? & i quite didnt understand Shilpa..first she said comments were of racial descrimination & Tony Blair & Indian Govt talking about it and poor us watching her with Jade with CNN having discussion with Apache Indian & God knows who all. Later she comes up with apology saying comments not of racism….. she is more concerned about her 3 crores thn anything else..then y be a cry baby????
this whole deal is like a ping-pong match; a War of the Worlds so to speak. First we have the jaded Shilpa Shetty taking it upon herself to showcase Indian culture to the British whose culture can be conveniently found between a fish-and-chips deal, and now we have the PR Cinderella – Jade Goody – coming down to boogie at the ball before midnight, in every sense of the word, strikes.
So far so good.
But even with the respectable PR antics being invested in whatever artistic credit these “celebrities” have, the biggest blow to my credence as an Indian is the fact that Shamita Shetty, blow-up Bollywood plastic bitch that she is, would resort to such shameful last resorts in order to get publicity. Not that I was fond of her anyway but the fact is that more and more of our own “celebrities” are acting like bizzare airheads to get forward or being seen as controversial.
All I can say is Shhhhhhhh cause no matter what we say, in the end, “SAb kuch dikta hai!!”
Apologies for posting on this article on an issue from an earlier post. Do check out Sandipan Deb’s new profile picture…then read my comment (especially the conclusion) on your article about him. I am rather sure that the fellow read your blog.
finally shilpa won the big brother contest…
i wonder if this gimmick was just for the prize money
“Why has Debashish Mohanty not there in the houseâ€¦he swings both ways just like most people on Big Brother?”
Just shows how scripted and controlled the Big Brother show is. It has come to India as well. Yuck.
@Riya: And now Shetty wins. The BJP wants her to be in their party. A revolution awaits.
@Suman: Yes sir. I was aware of where the term comes from.
@SirPyscho: At least Ms. Shetty has money enough to buy Shamita some underwear.
@Vasabjit: I could not find Mr. Deb’s new picture nor did I see any comment from you. Would you happen to have the link for this profile page?
@Pegasus: Was it now?
@Aravind: Hasnt Big Boss being going on for some time now? Rahul Roy won that one.
“We totally understand. If anyone I felt close to was being subject to racial abuse on national TV, even I would forget to wear my Gopal underwear below the lungi.”
Indeed, I too share the same feeling. In fact, I believe that the entire nation should protest the racial abuse against Shilpa Shetty by not wearing underwear for one day…
BTW GB, “Gopal underwear” never heard of it, where did you notice it, on the streets of Kolkatta? anyways, that adds one more name to the list. Gopal underwear is next in line after Vipul and Dara undergarments.
Btw have you ever wondered why there are so many ganjee jangian ads on Bangla TV?
I cannot say that I have.
Allow me to present the ‘uncovered’ truth 🙂 of the Mid Day picture you linked to.

I do think that what Jade did was wrong. But people should really forgive her and the other two girls. I saw their interviews and it was terrible. They were crying constantly. Jo was even shaking and as a result of this whole mess, she has become scared of mirrors, cameras and people in general. It’s really sad. Jade had to be sent to rehab. I don’t know about Danielle, but I’m sure she’s having a hard time too since she lost her modelling contract. Shilpa has forgiven these girls, and so should we. As for Shamita Shetty, people should leave her alone as well. Why are people so interested in what she is wearing or not wearing?
