Bigg Boss 14 is yet to premiere its first episode but it seems the controversial show has already invited a controversy by introducing their first contestant. Yesterday, show's host Salman Khan along with three ex-popular contestants- Sidharth Shukla, Hina Khan and Gauahar Khan held a virtual press conference with the media.
For the first time in the history of Bigg Boss they introduced one of the contestants from the upcoming season and that is Jaan Kumar Sanu, who is the son of famous singer, Kumar Sanu. The singer, who is yet to make a mark in the industry has received a ticket to enter the house and this has not gone well with Bigg Boss 7 contestant, Sofia Hayat.

The actress has shared a long video on her Instagram demanding people to boycott the season and show their support towards the late actor.
In the video, Sofia is seen saying, "I am sure all must have heard the name of Jaanu Saanu who has just been announced as the Bigg Boss house contestant. He is Kumar Sanu's son, who is again a star child. And with that I am personally very disappointed. Because in the last few months we have seen the whole case of Sushant Singh Rajput's play out in front of our eyes in the media. A young life was lost due to the industry's mistreatment. A mistreatment to the people who are not born in star families. Now, Bigg Boss has no regard for what's happening in India."
She goes on saying, "India has stood up to support Sushant Singh Rajput. We all feel deeply his suicide is for no reason except nepotism. And Bigg Boss continues to play out the old story. You would remember when I was in Bigg Boss I was badly treated. I represented all the women in India who have been abused and not heard. Sushant Singh Rajput represents everybody who has been a victim of nepotism. His and others' voices have been a waste of time? Aap log decide kar sakte ho Sushant Singh Rajput ki maut kiske liye hai? Agar aap Sushant Singh Rajput ke saath ho then you will break up with Bigg Boss. Bollywood is not about star children its about you. You control Bollywood nobody else does. You choose what you have to watch on television so you are the one who choose what becomes popular."
The actress ended up saying, "Bigg Boss ko sharm aani chahiye ki wo pehla guest introduce karte hain Jaan Sanu who is another star kid. Let's take nepotism out of the industry. Do not let Sushant Singh Rajput's death be for nothing. You make all the difference. Boycott Bigg Boss and end nepotism. India has evolved and progressed but shows like Bigg Boss are keeping you in lower vibration of state. Now, show the power of Boycott Bigg Boss and then they will see the boss is the viewer."
