Jaan Kumar Sanu, son of famous Bollywood playback singer Kumar Sanu, has yet again made it to the headlines. And this time, it’s not because of his anger or any other fight inside the house. This whole situation is rather serious and grievous. In the recent episode of Bigg Boss season 14, Jaan asked his fellow contestant Nikki Tamboli to stop talking in Marathi as the language irks him. In his words, he said, “mereko chid hoti hai”. This remark of his did not go well with the shiv Sena leader Pratap Sarnaik and MNS leader Ameya Khopkar. Both of them condemned his words and statement. They even asked for the immediate ban of the fan-favorite show, Bigg Boss.
Looking at the severity of the act, Bigg Boss decided to upload Jaan’s apology on the official social media account of Colors TV. In the video, Bigg Boss told Jaan that discrimination of any sort will not be tolerated inside the house and they even asked Jaan to properly apologize on national television.
In the Video Jaan said, ” Namaste, mera naam Jaan Kumar Sanu hai. Maine kuch dino pehle, anjaane mein hi sahi, magar maine ek galti ki, jisse Marathi logon ko, aur unke sentiments ko thes pahunchi hai. Main iss baat ke liye sincerely sorry kehna chahunga. Mera bilkul bhi intention nahi tha ke main Marathi logon ko thes ya chot pahunchaun. Agar mere intentions galat aaye hain saamne se, toh main uske liye tahe dil se maafi maangna chahunga. Bigg Boss I am really sorry ke maine aapko sharminda kiya hai, aur main aage se yeh baat bilkul repeat nahi karunga (Namaste, my name is Jaan Kumar Sanu. A few days ago, I unknowingly made a blunder that has hurt the sentiments of Marathi people. I am sincerely sorry about this. It was never my intention to offend the Marathi people. If my comments have been perceived as negative, I would like to apologise for them. I would also like to apologise to Bigg Boss for harming the show’s reputation, and will repeat this mistake).”
Viacom 18 also issued an apology letter saying that they respect all languages and in the future, they will make sure to never repeat this mistake again. They even said, they will ensure corrective measures are taken to prevent such mishaps on the show.
