Bigg Boss OTT season 2 became a hot trending topic on the internet ever since the first day it started streaming on Jio Cinema. Termed as the unfiltered version, in the past few weeks, the show saw Akanksha Puri and Jad Hadid locking lips for 30 seconds during a task. Well not only did the makers and the contestants get slammed by the audiences, but even Salman Khan was left seething. Now, days after her eviction, Akanksha has opened up about the same and criticised the makers for promoting that kiss everywhere.
The 34-year-old actress shared her opinion on how everything panned out on the show, leading up to her eviction, in a live interview on the EloElo app. She criticized the makers and expressed how if the kiss was that much of a big deal they could have informed them to stop just like Bigg Boss usually does for other things. Quoted by ABP News, she said, “Agar ye sach mein itni badi problem thi to Bigg Boss humein mic pe bahut si cheezein bolte they ki Hindi mein baat mat karo, mic theek se pahniye to ye bhi bol dete ki ‘task hai yahi pe rok dijiye’. To aisa to kuch nahi bola unhone.” ALSO READ: Bigg Boss OTT 2: Manisha Rani For FORCES A Kiss On Abdu Rozik; Uorfi Javed Lashes Out, Says, ‘He's Not A Kid, Boundaries People’
