Nivedita Gowda. That's the name that has caught the attention of Kannadigas for this edition of Kannada reality show, 'Bigg Boss 5'. Be it her for Kanglish or even her animated expressions, Nivedita Gowda has become an internet sensational. So much so that ever since she entered the Bigg Boss house, she is being trolled like no other.


But her mother Hema Ramesh unperturbed by these trolls, told Kannada Prabha that "We used to love when she would talk in Anglicised Kannada when she was a child. But we did not correct her, and this remained with her. It's not her fault. She does not put an accent while talking to many others. Many troll her. She is just 18-year-old and isn't this an achievement that she is participating in a reality show at such a young age."
