Popular Indian reality show host Salman Khan has responded to allegations made by his Bigg Boss 14 contestant Rubina Dilaik.
In a recent episode, Rubina had said that Salman had spoken to her condescendingly. In Saturday’s Weekend Ka Vaar episode, Salman asked Rubina to not use his name to attract eyeballs, according to the Hindustan Times.
He said, “Ab samaan wali baat main touch karu ya na touch karu, yeh aap mujhe bataye kyuki agar main isko touch karunga toh main ekdum bheetar iske ghus jaauga. Dekho aap andar khel rahi ho bahut accha khel rahi ho lekin iss khel main mujhe shamil mat karo aap (Now, shall I address the ‘samaan’ issue? Because if I do, then I will address it in detail. Look, you’re playing well, but please don’t include me in your games).”
Salman went on to assure Rubine that her husband Abhinav Shukla, towards whom she felt the condescending remark was directed, would’ve been on the show even if he weren’t married to her.
He added, “Main aapka competition nahi hoon, main aapka host hoon, aap mere ghar mein reh rahe ho. Toh please, iss galatfemi mein mat rehein, kyunki yeh galatfemi ka gubaara aapke sar pe phootega (I am not your competitor, I am your host, you’re staying in my house. So please, be aware of this, otherwise your plans might backfire).”
In a recent episode, Rubina complained to Bigg Boss that she did not appreciate Salman referring to Abhinav as ‘samaan’ (luggage). “I feel utterly disrespected, I believe in mutual respect and I cannot function and work at a place where I feel disrespected,” she had said, while Bigg Boss tried to get her to change her mind about wanting to quit.
