Pritam expressed his unhappiness about his heroics being ignored by celebrities as no one had tweeted for him, but he that celebrities were on ‘cloud 9’ when it comes to ‘fake feminism’.

For the uninitiated, Neha got flak from a section of netizens when she fumed at a male contestant for hitting his girlfriend.  His reason for hitting her, that she was in a relationship with five men at the same time, being termed ‘her choice’ by Neha Dhupia did not go down well with some netizens. Memes also surfaced over her statement, in comparison to another moment on the show, where she praised a female contestant for slapping guys, while her co-judges like Nikhil Chinappa were also at the receiving end.
