The Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa finale was quite a steamy night. Of course, there was victory in the air (check out this leaked photo), but something unexpected happened too. The Comedy Nights Bachao team had performed a little sketch which was very roast style. The “roast” took all the contestants cases and Kavita Kaushik was one of them. However, it did not go down well with the babe at all!
As she became the target of jokes, she walked off the sets fuming!
I was taken by surprise and I don’t approve of insulting somebody. I don’t do it myself. I started my career as an anchor and I don’t do it myself. I have not attended award shows for the past few years because this is the kind of humour that is carried out there. I don’t enjoy stuff like that and I am a little too dignified for stuff like this. I am a known public figure and I know how to carry myself on a public platform. I didn’t sign up for getting insulted on national TV.
As a mature free citizen of this country I have a right to retaliate. And that power was taken away from me and if I am not given that right it is unfair. So, what can a dignified person say when someone is saying nasty, rude, cheap comments that I don’t endorse. I will get up and walk away from that place. I am not someone who will yell scream and fight. I am not Bigg Boss material person. I will not fight and get into an ugly mess. I fight with the people I love. I don’t get into a volley of words.
No one apologised. Someone from Jhalak’s team called me and said that she felt sorry. The people who insulted me are part of the comedy show but I am not against them. They were perhaps given scripts and were not in any position to say. However, they don’t have the brains to say no to such things. It is not fair to take an actor by surprise and insult them. I have worked hard to reach this position. I am not in the rat race and am too dignified to stoop this low.
We wonder if they’d air this on the grand finale episode on the 10th October.
