In the last two episodes we have seen Shalin Bhanot fighting with Gautam Singh Vig and calling him a ‘woman’ in a rather derogatory manner. He said, “Teri daadhi bacha rahi hai teri mardangi.” He even said Gautam is the prettiest of all women in the house.
This however, did not go down well with many ex contestants, journalists and even fans of the most controversial show of the country, Bigg Boss. During last night’s captaincy task, Shalin Bhanot while eliminating Gautam Singh Vig from the captaincy task said, “yeh ek bahut badhi jo janani hai, usay main captaincy se nikaalna chahunga.” Shalin even called Gautam a sister of Soundarya Sharma.
Netizens and especially many ex contestants, who are a fan of Bigg Boss, have called out Shalin Bhanot for considering the word ‘Ladhki,’ ‘janani,’ ‘girl,’ and/or ‘woman,’ derogatory. Gauahar Khan, the winner of Bigg Boss season 7 took to her Twitter account and voiced her opinion on the issues and said that women are not weak to be used against a man. While referring to Shalin’s mother, Gauahar even mentioned how he should be aware of the power and strength of a woman, since he is born from one.
Shalin Bhanot auratein kamzor nahi hotin .To think calling Gautam an aurat is something derogatory, is extremely disappointing. Insult karna hai toh traits aur personality pe karo .Aurat kitni strong hoti hai woh toh aapke paidaish pe hi app ko pata hona chahiye.Ur mom is a woman

Not just Gauahar Khan, even Rajiv Adatia had similar thoughts to express for Shalin Bhanot’s extremely misogynistic remarks against women.
They way Shalin Said to Gautam “Khamzor Aurat”seriously not done! Any by the way Aurat kabhi Kamzor nai hoti!They are stronger then all of us men put together!They carry a child for 9 months men couldn’t even imagine! They are the most strongest in every way! #bb16

One of the famous journalists, Nayandeep Rakshit also pointed out Shalin’s misogyny on his Twitter handle:
Calling a guy an "aurat" as if it's an abuse. Well, sorry #ShalinBhanot𓃵 you are a deeply sexist idiot. And aurat sab hai jin pe line maarte firte ho taaki kuch footage milein.
Haatao yaar iss badtameez insaan ko.#GautamVig is 100 times better than you for sure!
