Salman is a chauvinistic pig, Bigg Boss was a f***all experience: Sapna Bhavnani

Celebrity hairstylist Sapna Moti Bhavnani is not one to mince words, especially when it comes to voicing out about her dislike for the ‘Sultan’ actor.

Earlier, when Salman’s rape comment stirred a nation-wide controversy, Bhavnani was very vocal about her thoughts. But every time she would speak up against the actor, her feed would get inundated with a barrage of hateful and abusive posts from his fans.

In a recent interview with HT, the stylist spoke about her Bigg Boss experience and elaborated on her dislike for the actor.

On why she agreed to do Bigg Boss

“They had been after me for the longest time. I had just come back from Europe and they were harassing me like, ‘please come on the show.’ So I asked my mom that these ‘people have been after my life to be on the show, what should I do’? My mom looked at me and she was like, ‘you know, Sapna, women like you would never be represented on Indian TV. It’s very important that you go on the show… you need to show the people of India that there are women like you in this country, women who have a voice, women who can’t be bought by money, women who can’t be bought by fame’. She made sense, I went, my point was taken, my job was done.”

On her Bigg Boss experience

“You have a male chauvinistic f***ing pig as a host of this f***ing show, that insults people, so people watch the show, and people worship him on the show because people want a job in one f his stupid f***-all movies where he dances like a monkey – that’s big boss in a nutshell.”

On the aftermath of Salman’s rape comment

“It’s insulting to have an Indian man talk like that on an international platform. I am embarrassed to call myself an Indian when statements like these go out worldwide. I was very vocal about it on Twitter, and everywhere. I got a lot of flak for it, but flak or stalkers and trollers should not be the reason why you should stop voicing the truth.”

“It’s (comments on Twitter) insane, if you read some of the crap that was written… you’d know. Before I started blocking them, I was reporting them to Twitter, my point is to get them off Twitter, but when twitter was also not taking necessary action, I had to block them, because I couldn’t let them affect my mental health. These guys are hired by the Khan and political parties… these people have zero followers, but everyday they come to slam you.”

On publicly criticising Salman

“Actually a lot of people told me, I was warned that you shouldn’t talk about him like that because you could get killed, and I was like, ‘what!’ I had heard rumours, but I have been channelling this ‘no fear’ thing for the past four years and I am not going to let a monkey scare me. I have been through a gang rape, I know what it feels like, I am a surviving member… there is nothing worse you can do to me really.”

Bhavnani is currently working on her book, which revolves around all the ‘chapter ones’ of her life.
