Bigg Boss 13: Sidharth Shukla’s former co-star Sheetal Khandal accuses him of inappropriate behaviour
Balika Vadhu star Sheetal Khandal accused Sidharth Shukla of appropriately touching her.
Bigg Boss 13 contestant Sidharth Shukla has been termed as the most arrogant contestant in the show. The television actor has come out as the most popular contestant on the show. Recently, Sidharth had been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons as co-contestant Rashami Desai accused him of touching her on the show. Notably, this is not the first time that he has faced such accusations against him.
Shukla’s former co-star Sheetal Khandal, who worked on the daily soap Balika Vadhu, revealed that he would make sexual comments and touch her inappropriately on the set of the show.
Talking to The Times Of India, Sheetal said, “I was laughing recently when I saw him taking a stand for Arti Singh on Bigg Boss 13 as in real life the kind of language he has used with me and comments that he has made for me are nothing compared to what Siddharth Dey has said for Arti. He used to pass vulgar and double meaning jokes on me. He also passed comments which I can’t even share with you. I had complained about him to one of the creative producers of the show after which he created a huge ruckus on the sets. When he arrived the next day on the sets he was yelling at the top of his voice against me. From body-shaming to passing derogatory comments he has done everything and on Bigg Boss 13 he is trying to project himself as one ‘mahaan’ (great) person.”
Sheetal also said that Shukla made her uncomfortable by touching her inappropriately, “There were times when he would get over-friendly and touch me in an inappropriate manner. Once we were shooting a master shot where he had to touch my feet and the way touched me I felt disgusted. I got scolded as the shot did not come across as it was needed and I couldn’t share with anyone why I behaved in such away. He used to keep his hands on my shoulders even though we did not share that kind of rapport with each other. It was my first show so initially, I did not complain, but later when things started getting out of hand I had to complain against him.”
Referring to Dey and Arti’s fight on BB13, Sheetal said, “If you hear something offensive you react immediately and don’t wait for a moment to show your anger.”
