Siddharth Shukla is arguably one of the most controversial contestants on the current season of Bigg Boss. The 38-year-old actor is frequently called out on social media, for his rude and aggressive behaviour towards fellow contestants. He once again topped the trends list on Thursday. However, this time the actor was called out by his former co-star. In a recent interview with the Times Of India, she alleged that Siddharth "passed vulgar comments" on her while they were working on the show together. "He used to pass vulgar and double meaning jokes on me. He also passed comments which I can't even share with you," said the actress.
The actress also accused Siddharth of "touching her inappropriately" during the shoots. "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," she said.
She also revealed during the interview that she complained about Siddharth to one of the creative producers. However, the actor yelled at her once he found out and even "body shamed" her. She added, "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."
Siddharth Shukla became a household name after he featured in Balika Vadhu: Kacchi Umar Ke Pakke Rishte.
