A video posted on Miss Diva’s Instagram handle sees her walking up to the judges. Shilpa is seen standing with her sister Shamita. She, along with Kirron Kher and Badshah, congratulate Harnaaz.
Badshah, who’s seated, jokes, “Yeh koi teesra banda aaya Chandigarh se.” Shilpa also points out that it’s after so many years that someone’s bagged the title. She hugs Harnaaz.
However, looking at their casual demeanour, netizens were quick to point out Shilpa and Badshah’s ‘fake’ and ‘disrespectful’ behaviour towards Harnaaz.
One wrote, “Does not #harnaazsandhu Deserve More Respect…? Shame #indiasgottalent.”
Another commented, “These judges lack basic manners.. So fake and non interested.. Itni acchi ladki hai harnaaz.. Desh ka naam kia hai.. Koi respect kuch nhi.. Shameful.” A user also wrote, “What’s wrong with them ?? Seriously dude it’s clearly visible that they are giving fake expressions.
Shilpa was replaced by Malaika Arora on the show briefly as she had a film commitment to fulfill. Now that she is back, IGT judges are back to having some BTS fun which is duly shared by Shilpa on her Instagram handle.
