TV’s most controversial reality show Bigg Boss is back with its 16 edition. The show was launched on October 1 where Salman Khan officially welcomed 16 contestants including some known names like Bollywood director and #MeToo accused Sajid Khan, TV actors Shalin Bhanot, Tina Datta, and Sreejita De among many others. Even before the show began to air properly, it hogged the limelight owing to one controversial contestant Sajid Khan.
The filmmaker, who has directed films like Housefull, Heyy Babyy, Himmatwala and many others, was accused of molesting women. The filmmaker was called out not by many women during the #MeToo wave.
Now Sajid Khan is back in the public’s eye after almost 4 years and it doesn’t seem to go down well with netizens. Ever since he entered the house, social media users have been calling out the makers of giving him the platform. Recently, #MeToo India’s official Twitter handle called out the makers of maintaining complete silence. They wrote, “Complete silence from @ColorsTV and @BiggBoss on the #SajidKhan allegations so far.”
Reacting to the same, netizens called Bigg Boss a ‘washing machine’. A netizen wrote, “Bigg Boss is daag washing machine. Criminals banke jao , entertainer ban ke niklo.” While another said, “No there has been a response. They are portraying him as the ‘nice peacemaker guy’.”
“Shouldn’t surprise us! This was expected. Is he going to abuse girls on camera now?,” wrote a third user. “One should understand it is all about power and the powerful. and no one really cares the reality and the truth that’s how India is built over the decades in all important sectors including TV and cinema,” said another Twitter user.
