Bigg Boss Telugu 5: The house of Bigg Boss has crowned Shanmukh as the new captain. Shanmukh emerged as the eventual winner of the recent captaincy assignment to succeed Sunny as the home captain. However, contrary to the routine, the channel airing the show has shared a tweet congratulating Shanmukh for becoming the new captain of the house. This did not go down well with a section of netizens who have been questioning the channel about not leaving a tweet congratulating Shanmukh alone but the other captains of the house. However, some fans are supporting Shanmukh and his performance in the captaincy task.
This is not the first time the channel has faced backlash on social media for Bigg Boss. The makers had released a special teaser on Shanmukh's birthday celebrations both inside and outside the house. But Shanmukh's birthday celebrations were however dropped from the main episode.
She is undoubtedly one of the most popular contestants in social media. But he earned criticism on social media due to his idle gameplay, buzz in the Moz Room and cat fights with BFFs Siri and Jaswant. For the unversed, the recent task had Shanmukh, Siri, Sriram Chandra, Sunny, Ani and Manas competing for the captaincy. Annoyed by Siri's support to Shanmukh during the game, Ani quits. He accused Shanmukh and Siri of indulging in factionalism during the task. He also disputes with Sunny and Ani.
