During the episode, Kangana Anjali worked on her comments from the beginning of the week. Addressing influencers on social media, actor Anjali said, “Anjali, who’s a little older than you, they’re all old (old people) what do you call me now? Anjali tried to clarify that ‘I said that because I became a’ target ‘for my age. “For every little thing, they target me that I am young,” he told Kangana.
Responding to Anjali’s comments, Nisha Rawal said, “I was very angry because I thought it was not a good and polite way to talk like that.” Turning her attention to Anjali again, Kangana said, “When you talk like this, what would you call a child or not?”
In the latest episode of Lock Up, Anjali had a verbal altercation with fellow contestants Nisha and Payal Rohatki. When Payal called her a child and asked, ‘Learn from the more experienced’, Anjali retorted, “Hon do puton ke liye b nahi jaga nahi hai na ye … bachon ke samne putte gade hain (this place is not. The children are standing in front). Then Nisha with Anjali fought for her opinion.
In the video of the exchange shared by Alt Balaji on Instagram, many fans praised Anjali for swearing at Kangana for her age-reducing comments. However, some pointed out that Kangana and other contestants did not like to call her ‘Pachchi (little girl)’. One observer commented, “It’s a shame to call Anjali Buddhi an age shame, they called her Pachi, isn’t it an age shame?”
