Filmmaker Sajid Khan's participation in Bigg Boss 16 as a contestant has drawn criticism from a sizable audience, which now includes singer Sona Mohapatra. The "depraved and sad lot" of Indian TV channels, she claimed, are. In the course of Saturday's premiere, Sajid entered the home. Following, many criticized the channel and the show for giving him the opportunity despite the numerous sexual assault claims made against him by numerous businesswomen during the MeToo movement.
Late on Sunday night, Sona responded on Twitter to a news anchor's post regarding the various sexual assault claims made against Sajid Khan over the past few years. Sona reported, "On a reality TV show right now, this is #SajidKhan. And then there's #AnuMalik, who is a judge on a kid-friendly music reality TV series. #KailashKher? TV Judge with Celebrity. A LARGE NUMBER OF WOMEN IN @IndiaMeToo HAVE CALLOUTED EVERYONE. The executives of Indian TV channels are an evil and pitiful bunch."
In a subsequent tweet, she continued, "& of course the series sleaze #VikasBehl & master of disgusting #SuhelSeth, all back on Indian TV... This thought, "It's a dying medium, and some dying will thrash around doing the worst to save themselves, even if it means dragging other humans under; women. @IndiaMeToo," comforts me (?).
In relation to the allegations of sexual assault made against Sajid, he is accused of watching porn in front of women, flashing his privates at parties, requesting nude photos from female actors during the casting process, and more.
Sajid discussed how his work suffered as a result of the allegations during the Bigg Boss 16 debut on Saturday. He admitted to the host Salman Khan, "I didn't have much work, and I've been at home for the past four years. As a result, I decided that I should come here and perhaps discover something about myself when the Colors team called me. I have experienced many ups and downs in my life, and I have been at my lowest point in the last four years, he continued.
When Shehnaaz Gill shared a message for Sajid as he entered the house, she received criticism. Kashmera Shah received abuse for supporting Sajid Khan on Sunday. In a tweet, she had written, "Just saw #BiggBoss on @justvoot and must say I loved the lineup. There are a few early favorites, but I must admit that #SajidKhan's brutal honesty touched my heart. I look forward to seeing him receive more wise counsel from his sister #farahkhan @ColorsTV ##BB16."
