Bigg Boss 13 contestant Sidharth Shukla is currently termed as the most arrogant, rude and misbehaved person by few females of the house. Mahira Sharma, Rashami Desai, Devoleena Bhattacharjee, Shefali Bagga have often complained about his flaring temper. Recently, his former co-star Rashami Desai, who is also a housemate on Bigg Boss 13, accused him of touching her, now his Balika Vadhu co-star Sheetal Khandal has made some shocking allegations against Sidharth Shukla. In an exclusive conversation with the TimesofIndia.com, Sheetal alleged Sidharth of cracking vulgar jokes and touching her inappropriately during Balika Vadhu.
“I was laughing recently when I saw him taking a stand for Arti Singh on Bigg Boss 13 as in real life the kind of language he has used with me and comments that he has made for me are nothing compared to what Siddharth Dey has said for Arti. He used to pass vulgar and double meaning jokes on me. He also passed comments which I can’t even share with you. I had complained about him to one of the creative producers of the show after which he created a huge ruckus on the sets. When he arrived the next day on the sets he was yelling at the top of his voice against me. From body-shaming to passing derogatory comments he has done everything and on Bigg Boss 13 he is trying to project himself as one ‘mahaan’ (great) person,” lashed Sheetal.
The actress, who played the role of Gehna on the show, also accused Sidharth of often getting extra friendly with her, “There were times when he would get over friendly and touch me in an inappropriate manner. Once we were shooting a master shot where he had to touch my feet and the way touched me I felt disgusted. I got scolded as the shot did not come across as it was needed and I couldn’t share with anyone why I behaved in such a way. He used to keep his hands on my shoulders even though we did not share that kind of rapport with each other. It was my first show so initially I did not complain, but later when things started getting out of hand I had to complain against him,” shared Sheetal.
According to Sheetal, Sidharth likes to throw his weight around and give people a difficult time, ‘I am not surprised with Sidharth Shukla’s behaviour. I have personally seen and I know what kind of person he is. People who have worked with him are aware of how he throws his weight around. When I worked with him on Balika Vadhu, he was known for throwing tantrums. He used to arrive on sets late, make us wait for him to begin the shoot. The production house had a difficult time working with him,” said the actress.
Sidharth’s anger issues is most talked about in the Bigg Boss 13 house and Sheetal says that everyone on the sets of Balika Vadhu were aware about it, but no one ever dared to speak against him, She said, “He gets angry at the drop of a hat. His temper flares up in no time and he is arrogant there is no denying. And whenever he created a scene on the sets none of the senior actors revolt against it. I wish someone had complained or told him that he was doing wrong. He has given tough to everyone who worked with him during Balika Vadhu but as he was the channel’s recommendation nobody had the guts to go against him.’
Sheetal calls Sidharth taking Arti’s side during her fight with Siddhartha Dey a well thought move, “I played that BB episode again and again to watch what went wrong between Arti Singh and Siddhartha Dey. I realised that it was a very well thought move by Sidharth as when the incident happened, he was standing right there but he did not respond then and later, created such a huge uproar. If you hear something offensive you react immediately and don’t wait for a moment to show your anger,’ concluded the actress.
