Bigg Boss 14 contestant Jaan Kumar Sanu has apologised for making remarks that were perceived to be anti-Maharashtra and offended Marathi speaking people. Colors channel shared a video of his apology.
During one of the recent episodes, Jaan expressed his displeasure at co-contestant Nikki Tamboli speaking to Rahul Vaidya in Marathi in the house. He said that he finds the language annoying and if she has the courage then she should speak to him in Hindi. This did not go down well with political parties of Maharashtra including Shiv Sena and MNS who demanded an apology.
The video shared by Colors begins with Bigg Boss telling Jaan that discrimination of any kind is not tolerated on the show "Namaste, mera naam Jaan Kumar Sanu hai. Maine kuch dino pehle, anjaane mein hi sahi, magar maine ek galti ki, jisse Marathi logon ko, aur unke sentiments ko thes pahunchi hai. Main iss baat ke liye sincerely sorry kehna chahunga. Mera bilkul bhi intention nahi tha ke main Marathi logon ko thes ya chot pahunchaun. Agar mere intentions galat aaye hain saamne se, toh main uske liye tahe dil se maafi maangna chahunga. Bigg Boss I am really sorry ke maine aapko sharminda kiya hai, aur main aage se yeh baat bilkul repeat nahi karunga (Namaste, my name is Jaan Kumar Sanu. A few days ago, I unknowingly made a mistake that has hurt the sentiments of Marathi people. I am sincerely sorry about this. It was never my intention to offend the Marathi people. If my comments have been perceived as negative, I would like to apologise for them. I would also like to apologise to Bigg Boss for harming the show’s reputation, and will repeat this mistake)," Jaan said in the video.
On Wednesday, Colors also issued a public apology on their social media handle. “We at COLORS apologise for the remarks in relation to Marathi language made on Bigg Boss episode aired on Tuesday, 27th October. We had no intentions of hurting the sentiments of the people of Maharashtra,” they wrote.
