The latest episode of Bigg Boss 17 has stirred controversy as contestant Vicky Jain made derogatory comments about Mannara Chopra, accusing her of being ‘cheap’ for sitting on Munawar Faruqui’s lap. Actress and producer Pooja Bhatt, known for her advocacy and outspokenness, took to Twitter to slam Vicky Jain’s remarks, highlighting the need for respectful behaviour in the reality show space. Bhatt was also a contestant on Bigg Boss OTT Season 2 and was loved by one and all.

Check out below what she had to say…

Mannara, attempting to protect items that Munawar Faruqui had hidden inside his jacket, sat on the armrest of the couch he was occupying. In response, Vicky Jain remarked, “Very, very improper, the way you are sitting.” She quoted Vicky’s words and expressed her disapproval, saying, “Says a male contestant attempting to shame #MannaraChopra who is merely attempting to protect a friend. When all else fails, shame the woman and then go on to self-righteously call yourself a ‘Gentleman’. Not cool.” Bhatt’s tweet draws attention to the underlying issue of attempting to shame women for their actions, especially in situations where they are merely trying to protect or support their friends.

The incident in the latest episode of Bigg Boss 17, coupled with Pooja Bhatt’s swift response, raises important questions about respect, gender dynamics, and self-righteous behaviour within the confines of reality television.
