Sajid Khan’s entry in Bigg Boss 16 has stirred a lot of questions. Fans are not happy with the makers of Salman Khan hosted show for letting him participate as he was accused of sexual misconduct by many women during the #MeToo movement. Now, television actress Devoleena Bhattacharjee has raised her voice and shown her disappointment with the makers for giving the Heyy Baby director a platform.
While speaking with Aaj Tak, Devoleena Bhattacharjee showed her discontentment and said, “It is a simple thing - nine women cast allegations on Sajid Khan. Not all of those nine can be wrong. Tell me, will someone install a camera and then abuse? This is why women avoid complaining about these incidents. Even the parents are scared that society will prove the victim as a liar. It breaks my heart to see him on national television, trying to prove he is a hero. I feel bad thinking where is our society headed.”
The Saath Nibhaana Saathiya actress stated that the Housefull director had claimed he participated in the show to introspect but it does not seem like doing that. She was quoted saying, “He is roaming around saying 'mai to in sab ka baap hu' (I am their father) instead. His behaviour shows that a liar will always be a liar. Now it appears that you may do anything and enter Bigg Boss. Ethics do not matter, if you are privileged, your deeds may easily be ignored. Personally, I do not like watching him on the show. If my blood boils enough, perhaps I will quit watching Bigg Boss.”
In a recent episode, the filmmaker passed nasty comments on TV actors while speaking to MC Stan. Responding to those comments, she Tweeted, “Well I tried to avoid the existence of a particular person in the house. But again #TVindustry ke actors hai?? I mean, everyone is on TV to clean their images and earn money. I am so freaking done with these people. Each TV actor reached here due to their hardwork, not because of nepotism, groupism. Just stop bloody commenting on tv actors. @BiggBoss #bb10.”
The former Bigg Boss contestant reshared a video on Twitter passing those comments and wrote, “Oh god.. Anyway aap baap honge apni duniye mein. Yes yeh duniya humari hai aur 1000 times better hai. Aur hab itni pareshani hai tv actors se toh aye kyun bhai TV pe. Behoshi mein aye the kya ? Once a liar always a liar. Kabhi nahi sudharne walon mein se hai yeh janab.”
For the unversed, in 2018, nine women from the industry came forward and accused the Himmatwala director of sexual harassment. These women include journalist Karishma Upadhyaya, actress Ahana Kumra, late actress Jiah Khan, model-actress Mandana Karimi, Sherlyn Chopra, Dimple Paul, Saloni Chopra, Racheal White and Simran Suri.
