Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra has recently been in the news for all the wrong reasons. As earlier we told you that the actor along with Manoj Bajpayee and Rakul Preet Singh, visited Bigg Boss house to promote their upcoming film Aiyaary.
During the show, the actors where given the task of repeating dialogues from Salman’s hit film Dabangg in Bhojpuri. However, things took an awkward turn when Sidharth said that mouthing the dialogues in Bhojpuri gave him a ‘latrine-kind’ of feeling.
Well, this thing did not go down well with Neetu Chandra, who in return took to Twitter to blast Mr Malhotra. The actress slammed the actor. 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.”
And now, BJP’s MP from Delhi Manoj Tiwari who has made a career in Bhojpuri cinema is going to file a PIL against Malhotra.
In a statement Manoj Tiwari said, “I just got to know about this. This person’s behaviour is utterly shameful and extremely objectionable. I will file a PIL against his remarks on Bhojpuri language by Thursday. This is a country where the first president Rajendra Prasad spoke Bhojpuri. Bhojpuri is spoken by 22 crore people in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand. The language spoken by the maximum number of bureaucrats in India is Bhojpuri. Sidharth Malhotra has insulted all of them.”
Ravi Kishan who is one of India’s topmost Bhojpuri stars feel sorry for Sidharth Malhotra. “This is nothing but ignorance of the highest order and shows what isolated lives Bollywood stars live. For Sidharth Malhotra’s kind information, Bhojpuri is the native of many eminent scholars, scientists and artistes. Amitabh Bachchan Saab and his father the great Harivansh Rai Bachchanji spoke Bhojpuri. The first president of India Rajendra Prasad spoke Bhojpuri. In fact it was Rajendra Babu, as he was affectionately known, who requested actor Nasir Hussain (not the filmmaker the character actor) to make India’s first Bhojpuri film Ganga Maiya Tohe Piyari Chedaibo. That’s how the Bhojpuri film industry started, of which I am a proud part. Sidharth should look beyond Bollywood. This is a land of multiple languages and cinema.”
