Post receiving threats from MNS of stopping the shoot of Bigg Boss 14, contestant Jaan Kumar Sanu has apologised to Maharashtrians for his Marathi remarks and said that it was not his intention to hurt the sentiments of anyone. For the uninitiated, Jaan was quite upset with the closeness between Nikki Tamboli and Rahul Vaidya and told her, “Marathi mei mat baat kar, mere saamne mat baat kar, meko chid hoti hai. Sunaauga teko, mere saamne Marathi mei mat baat kar. Dum hai toh Hindi mei bol warna mat baat kar, chid machti hai meko.”
Yesterday, the channel also an apology letter, which reads, “We at COLORS apologise for the remarks in relation to Marathi language made on the Bigg Boss episode aired on Tuesday, 27th October. We had no intentions of hurting sentiments of the people of Maharashtra.”
Jaan’s mother Rita Bhattacharya has issued a statement yesterday saying, “I request everyone to please treat this as a game and not attach their personal agendas with it. When Jaan, Rahul Vaidya and Nikki were together that time Nikki and Rahul were talking in Marathi which Jaan didn’t understand that’s why he requested them to avoid talking in Marathi because he thought they are talking about him. Please analyse the situation and then come to a conclusion.”
“How can he insult Marathi language? We are staying in Maharashtra since so many years, it’s been more than 30 to 35 years now. Maharashtra has given so much love and respect to his father (singer) Kumar Sanu ji. Such bizarre assumptions are causing a lot of unnecessary stress. The host of the show Salman Khan has clearly said that sirf Hindi bhasha ka prayog kare (only use Hindi language). Infact no one said anything when people made nepotism comments on him (her son). Where were you that time? I knew Shri late Bal Thackeray ji and I know Uddhav Thackeray ji very well. How can we insult Maharashtra? They are family. Will you appreciate if Jaan starts talking in Bengali and for that matter, each and every contestant starts talking in their state language? Please let him be, he is a kid, a child, don’t trouble him. We salute Maharashtra,” she added.
