Fans of Pratik Sehajpal are outraged after Jay Bhanushali insulted him on the latest episode of Bigg Boss 15. Fans took to Twitter to claim Jay’s punishment after he allegedly called Pratik a “dedh futiya” (a derogatory term for a short person).
During a task, Pratik destructed a map that would have allowed the ‘jungle residents’ access to the Bigg Boss house, which is currently occupied by him, Shamita Shetty, and Nishant Bhat. They were all contestants on the recently concluded OTT version of the same show, which was hosted by Karan Johar.
Outsiders, enraged by his actions, erected a barricade from the outer side of the house door, preventing anyone from entering. This sparked a heated argument between Jay and Pratik. Collars were yanked, insulting comments were passed and in the midst of it all, Jay made fun of Pratik’s height.
Jay’s behavior was brought up by a Pratik fan on Twitter. “He is disrespecting his mother. He’s bad-mouthing his father, who he doesn’t have, and insulting him by calling him a Dedh futiya . He’s been cornered. Utilizing a victim card and what else? And then you say he’s not going to fight back?” Another person claimed that the show’s host, Salman Khan, is the same height. “If I’m not mistaken, Salman’s height is nearly very much like Pratik’s. Will Jay also refer to him as dedh futiya?” read another tweet.
Following the ferocious fighting and slamming session, Bigg Boss decided to take some action against the outsiders by nominating them all for this week’s elimination. Vishaal Kotian, a contestant, went against this decision and intimidated more violent behavior.
Bigg Boss 15 premiered this week. Karan Kundrra, Akasa Singh, Tejasswi Prakash, Donal Bisht, Umar Riaz, Simba Nagpal, and others are part of the reality show. Salman Khan is back as the host of the new season, wherein the house has been partitioned into a ‘jungle’ and the usual living area.
