Bigg Boss known for its controversies is once again in headlines this time for a different reason. Siddharth Malhotra, who was present on the reality show a few days before the season closed down, made a very offensive remark on Bhojpuri language. This comment offended BJP MP from Delhi, Manoj Tiwari who is now going to file a PIL against him. Siddharth was on the show to promote his upcoming film Aiyaari and when he was asked by Manoj Bajpayee to recite some dialogues in Bhojpuri, he did that by commenting that it gave him a feeling of being in the ‘latrine’. When asked to Manoj Tiwari about the incident he said, ” “I just got to know about this. This person’s behaviour is utterly shameful and extremely objectionable. I will file a PIL against his remarks on the Bhojpuri language by Thursday. This is a country where the first president Rajendra Prasad spoke Bhojpuri. Bhojpuri is spoken by 22 crore people in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand. The language spoken by the maximum number of bureaucrats in India is Bhojpuri. Sidharth Malhotra has insulted all of them.”
This indeed was a sad statement coming from a Bollywood star, who is also considered a youth idol. Neetu Chandra talking on the statement took to Twitter saying, ”So disappointed @S1dharthM some1 who is so fortunate 2 work wd d best. Who despite being an outsider has made a name 4 himself,4 U 2 use ur words so loosely.2 disrespect #Bhojpuri on national TV. SHOCKED! How on earth does speaking in #Bhojpuri gives u a latrine feeling.Shame on U (sic).”
Meanwhile, Siddharth Malhotra has apologised for his statement and wrote on Twitter, ” I recently tried speaking a new language while I was on a TV show. In the process, if I inadvertently hurt anyone’s feelings or sentiments, I apologise and assure you that no disrespect was meant in any way (sic).”
But Tiwari was not satisfied with this gesture, hence stated a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) against Sidharth. He also expressed his displeasure against his comments calling the comment ‘ shameful and ‘extremely objectionable’.
