Siddharth Shukla is one of the most talked about contestants of the current season of Bigg Boss. Even his daily verbal spat with former co-star Rashami Desai inside the Bigg Boss House is a source of entertainment for the viewers and is often termed as ‘Angry Young Man’ of the house.
Now, another Siddharth co-star Sheetal Khandal has come up with accusation of sexual harassment and touching her inappropriately.
In a recent interview with IWM Buzz, Sheetal revealed that how can Siddharth Shukla take side of Aarti Singh in Bigg Boss House when he himself makes sexist remarks on women. He is trying to portray an image in the show that he respects women which in real life do not.
She said, "I myself have been victim of his sexist behavior when we were working together in Balika Vadhu. He has tried on many girls, you know what I mean. He would not only touch me inappropriately, but would often use very crude double meaning language. All this annoyed me a lot, but being new in the industry, I was hesitant to complain.’’
‘’Eventually, I gathered enough courage to approach the production house. Sadly, they did not bother much; rather, word soon reached Shukla, who then started venting his anger by refusing to shoot with me’’, she added.
She also revealed that after her co-stars asked her to forget and forgive Siddharth for his deeds and try to become friends with him which will be in the interest of the show. She agreed to it but Siddharth started doing those things again.
She said, “Siddharth, being a very egoistic person, does not brook anyone saying no to his bidding. And if you risk going against him, he behaves very rudely, as can be seen in Bigg Boss, especially with Rashami Desai.”
Meanwhile, Siddharth Shukla and Rashami Desai are nominated this week but both the contestants are considered to be strongest in the house because of their popularity among the TV audience.
