Bigg Boss 14: Jaan Kumar Sanu Mother Reacts To Her Son’s Anti-Marathi Remark Controversy
In last night’s episode of Bigg Boss 14, Jaan Kumar Sanu Apologizes to Marathi people for his ‘objectionable comments’ on the Marathi language. It all started, when Jaan asked his fellow contestant Nikki Tamboli to not to speak in Marathi. In a heated argument, Jaan had told Nikki, “Marathi mei mat baat kar, mere saamne mat baat kar, meko chid hoti hai. Sunaauga teko, mere saamne Marathi mei mat baat kar. Dum hai toh Hindi mei bol warna mat baat kar, chid machti hai meko.” This didn’t go well with a lot of Marathi people and late Shiv Sena and MNS threatened Colors TV and Jaan Kumar Sanu for dire consequences if they will not apologise immediately. Now, Jaan Kumar Sanu’s mother have come forward to talk about the controversy around his son.
Jaan Kumar Sanu’s mother Rita Bhattacharya shared her side of the situation. Speaking to Spotboye, Jaan’s mother said that they have been living in Maharashtra for 35 years and This state has given Jaan’s father Kumar Sanu so much love and respect. She also stated that Jaan told Nikki not to speak in Marathi because he didn’t understand the language.
Jaan’s mother was quoted saying by the portal, “I really want to request people to keep it like a game and not drag it outside. In yesterday’s episode, when Rahul, Nikki and Jaan were together in the red zone that time Rahul and Nikki were communicating something in Marathi which my son didn’t understand, so in return he told Nikki ‘Aap Marathi mein baat mat karo’ kyunki use laga they are talking something against him. I just want them to see the situation and then come to a conclusion. How can we insult Maharashtra or Marathi language? We have been staying in Maharashtra for 35 years. This state has given Jaan’s father Kumar Sanu so much love and respect. My family and I are really disturbed because of such things. It’s a cosmopolitan game which gets telecasted internationally, so if they won’t speak in Hindi, there are chances many people will not understand. And that’s why makers keep telling them to speak only in Hindi. I don’t understand why this big issue is being created out of it. Recently, my son was accused by Rahul Vaidya for nepotism on national television. At that time no one questioned about that or showed any kind of support to my kid. All the efforts and achievements were taken away from Jaan with one sentence.”
Rita Bhattacharya also said, “I just want to request not to insult any language. We are Indians and we love Maharashtra. I know the Thackery family very well as Balasaheb Thackrey had helped me so much earlier. So, how could we deny this state or language? With folded hands, I would request you to please let go things and not make an issue out of it. Maharashtra has given birth to so many legends and we respect this place. Please leave my son alone.”
