Bigg Boss 16: Priyanka Chahar Choudhary's team reacts to Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia's father's claim of using 'paid fans'; latter's team counter attacks


Priyanka Chahar Choudhary's team waged a war of words against Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia after her father accused the Udaariyaan actress of using paid fans to draw attention on social media. In the recent episode, Nimrit's father passed unsavoury comments which didn't sit down well with Priyanka's followers. In response to the episode, her team issued a strong statement clarifying that there were no paid followers and bots used to boast her presence on social media. 

Priyanka's team's statement read, "We are deeply hurt by the statements made by Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia's father in yesterday's episode. Sir, this immense love that she's showered across the nation is EARNED not bought. From making her win the MyGlamm contest using 'zero bots' (yes, we can proudly and confidently say that), to making history with 4 million tweets- we can assure you that it's all very real and is a result of the blood, sweat and tears of the entire fandom. She earned every single fan's love because she's truly JANTA KI JAAN! Also, just like Priyanka, we don't like to mudsling anyone, but now that we're here, we also don't want our silence to be confused with weakness. This is NOT an attack, it's a retaliation. So here it is- The Paltan had a dreadful time fighting bots during the MyGlamm contest, and after getting declared the WINNER of the contest, we can say that our love is stronger than any amount of bots. Hence, proved."

Reacting to Priyanka's team's statement, Nimrit's management agency said in a note, "The following Statement is in reply to the official statement made by Miss Priyanka's team on her official social media accounts earlier today with regard to the Bigboss Weekend Episode telecasted on the 7th January 2023. The statement by Nimrit's Father was in response to a question floated by the team regarding the social media trollers. The answer came from a deeply hurt and anguished Father who has witnessed unnecessary & totally unjustified bitterness & hatred against his daughter from only one person's so called fandom right from the inception of the show. Says Nimrit Ahluwalia's Father "We firmly believe that no responsible and genuine fan will ever stoop to the ugly levels of openly giving death and rape threats or spread hatred by body shaming, age shaming, mocking my daughter's anxiety and even her community. " We hold responsible some kind of deliberate & condescending social media strategy by that person's team, who on multiple instances have put up posts and shared stories on the verified profiles of Ms Priyanka trying to baselessly degrade Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia, like for instance underhandedly trying to make fun of her emotions while reading the family letter that was sent inside the house a few weeks back. Doing so, her team has purposely encouraged the so called irresponsible fans trying to openly troll & target Nimrit Ahluwalia. It seemed that our dignified silence was being mistaken & misconstrued as a sign of weakness. I am sure if Ms Priyanka has genuine and responsible fans, they will not only maintain her dignity but will also give the other contestants their due hard earned respect & behave in a manner that is lot more graceful. This has nothing to do personally with Miss Priyanka Chaudhary or her family."

The team concluded by saying, "Let's all remember that a true winner & real leader is never made by pulling someone down but by creating a winning pathway along with winning everyone's hearts on the way to the top, be it contestants, fans or the viewers."

We hope the war between the fan clubs is sorted.
