On Shilpa Shetty winning Big Brother
It’s fantastic, though the reason for her winning — the entire racism issue —is not good from our point of view. I have seen Celebrity Big Brother. I am also told of the kind of outrageous and rude things they do there on the show and even get away with it because that’s the done thing.

Shilpa was one of my first heroines. We worked in Baazigar together. All my heroines have made it big. Today, Shilpa too has done it. I feel proud of her.
