Remove Sajid Khan From Bigg Boss: Women’s Commission Writes To Union Minister

New Delhi: Sajid Khan’s participation in Bigg Boss 16 has led to a chorus of protest.


Odisha-born singer Sona Mohapatra slammed the entry of the filmmaker, who was accused by several women during the #MeToo movement in 2018, into the reality show, while actress Mandana Karimi decided to quit Bollywood saying there’s no respect for women in the industry.

Now, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has written to Union Information & Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur, requesting that Sajid be removed from Bigg Boss.

“Ten women had accused Sajid Khan of sexual harassment during the #MeToo movement. All these complaints show the disgusting mentality of Sajid. Now, this man has been given a place in Bigg Boss, which is wrong. I have written to @ianuragthakur to have Sajid Khan removed from this show,” Maliwal said in a tweet in Hindi on Monday.

Season 16 of the Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss premiered on TV on October 1.
