Comedienne Mallika Dua’s father and veteran journalist Vinod Dua on Wednesday slammed actor Akshay Kumar for making a vulgar remark at his daughter.
The backlash was in response to an ‘inappropriate’ comment by Akshay Kumar for the comedienne on the TV show, The Great Indian Laughter Challenge where he says something like “Mallikaji aap bell bajao, main apkobajata hoon,” (Mallika, you ring the bell, I will ring you). While at that time, Mallika didn’t react to it and took it in good humour, she, along with her father lashed out at the actor on Wednesday.
In a Facebook post, Vinod Dua posted the edited video and wrote: “I am going to screw this cretin Akshay Kumar for telling his co-worker Mallika Dua that “aapbell bajao main aap ko bajata hun” at 5:26.This is his sense of humour and language. Star Plus..wake up..”
Mallika also shared the clip on the social media site and wrote: “Hey! Quick question. Does anyone find 5:26 funny? Charming? Entertaining? Family entertainment. GEC.”
Vinod told IANS: “I don’t expect an apology from Star Plus as they have not aired this episode. But I expect an apology from this fellow (Akshay).”
While, Akshay didn’t comment on the same as yet.
