  • Hi Sudeep Sir & Whole BB5 team

    Me ad my family are enjoying BB5 every day, main thing is when it comes to kissing and hugging in house small kids and parents feel uncomfortable seeing female in very less dress, kindly resolve this we are not doing Hindi or English big boss, mainly all are good.
    But anupama is acting as if she is international celebrity as if she has done 2 flop serials , kindly acknowledge this and make a rules not to kiss or hug mainly dressing scense.

  • This season was focused completely about only one person Chandan Shetty thus curbing the chance of other deserving candidates to win which is very sad! JK is a highly positive person with a very dignified personality!! Your approach towards life is commandable JK!! Finale seems to be biased with already results leaked on wiki. So not watching finale!
