Jaan Kumar Sanu landed in an issue after his comment on the Marathi language throughout an episode of Bigg Boss 14. Now, his mother has mentioned that Maharashtra has given plenty of like to their household, and there’s no approach her son meant to insult the state. In the episode aired on October 27, Jaan had requested fellow contestant Nikki Tamboli to keep away from speaking in Marathi, and mentioned: “Mereko chid hoti hai (it annoys me)”. Soon, MNS chief Ameya Khopkar condemned the incident and demanded an apology from Jaan, who’s the son of playback star Kumar Sanu.
Jaan’s mother Rita Bhattacharya has issued an announcement saying: “I request everyone to please treat this as a game and not attach their personal agendas with it. When Jaan, Rahul Vaidya and Nikki were together that time Nikki and Rahul were talking in Marathi which Jaan didn’t understand that’s why he requested them to avoid talking in Marathi because he thought they are talking about him. Please analyse the situation and then come to a conclusion.”
“How can he insult Marathi language? We are staying in Maharashtra since so many years, it’s been more than 30 to 35 years now. Maharashtra has given so much love and respect to his father (singer) Kumar Sanu ji. Such bizarre assumptions are causing a lot of unnecessary stress. The host of the show Salman Khan has clearly said that sirf Hindi bhasha ka prayog kare (only use Hindi language). Infact no one said anything when people made nepotism comments on him (her son). Where were you that time? I knew Shri late Bal Thackeray ji and I know Uddhav Thackeray ji very well. How can we insult Maharashtra? They are family. Will you appreciate if Jaan starts talking in Bengali and for that matter, each and every contestant starts talking in their state language? Please let him be, he is a kid, a child, don’t trouble him. We salute Maharashtra,” she added.
Earlier on Wednesday, makers of the present issued an announcement to apologise over the incident.
“We have received objections regarding the reference to Marathi language during the episode broadcasted on October 27,2020 on Colors channel. We have taken note of these objections and have taken corrective measures of removing the said part from all future broadcasts of the episode,” mentioned Viacom18 Media, the guardian firm of Colors, which airs the present, in a letter addressed to Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray.
The letter additional reads: “We hereby apologise if we have inadvertently hurt the feelings of the people of Maharashtra due to the broadcast of the said comment in relation to Marathi language. We value the audience and the patronage of the Marathi speaking audience and respect all languages of India in the same manner.”
