Actor Sidharth Malhotra appeared on the set of Biggboss 11 to promote his upcoming thriller ‘Aiyaary’ with his co-stars Manoj Bajpayee and Rakul Preet Singh and during the show, he insulted Bhojpuri language.
Host of the show, Salman Khan had given the actors the task of repeating his dialogue from “Tiger zinda Hai” in Bhojpuri which Sidharth promptly tried but he also said that “Aisa Lag raha hai ki neeche baitha hua hai, latrin me. bathroom me kar rahe hai ki kaha hai”?.
Actress Neetu Chandra, whose mother tongue happens to be Bhojpuri, recently hits out at Sidharth Malhotra on social media saying that he should be ashamed for making such statements against Bhojpuri language.
She wrote, “So disappointed @S1dharthM some1who 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
Post this incident, Sidharth also took to Twitter and apologized to the actress and people in general for hurting their sentiments. He tweeted:
“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.”
