Ashmit Patel’s publicist is distraught with the remarks made by Bhojpuri superstar Manoj Tiwari on the reality show Bigg Boss this week. He has stated that the comments are “not only unwarranted, but downright defamatory and made with the intent to generate cheap mileage to last longer in the Bigg Boss House.”
Referring to Ashmit, Manoj said on the show, “Ganda hai… sa#@ dil ka… Matlab iss ghar mein agar koi sabse ma#@*%$*# … ek sadela aadmi hai… toh woh aadmi (Ashmit) hai. Kyonki dekho usne kya kiya apne life mein… girlfriend banaya… jiski usne video banake market mein de di.” [He (Ashmit) is smutty… (swearing)… from his heart. If there is one person in this House who is the most… (swearing again)… rotten man… that is him (Ashmit). He made a girlfriend… made her video and circulated it in the market].
Reacting to Manoj Tiwari’s insulting jibes, Ashmit’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar said, “Mr Tiwari has repeatedly raked up Ashmit’s old MMS issue on Bigg Boss, falsely alleging that Ashmit had deliberately spread the MMS.”
“Distorting facts in his conversations with other participants including Shweta Tiwari, Sameer Soni and The Great Khali, Mr Tiwari has vilified Ashmit and portrayed him in bad light behind his back. In fact, Mr Tiwari seems hell bent on tarnishing Ashmit’s image with his constant defamatory remarks about him,” added Bhagwagar.
It can be recalled that Ashmit Patel, on the very first day of the show, had categorically denied his involvement in spreading the MMS. In front of all the participants in the Bigg Boss House, he had narrated how the said personal video clip lying on his mobile phone, unknowingly got leaked out, when he gave his phone for repairs and how he had become a victim of circumstances.
The drama escalates between Manoj Tiwari and Ashmit Patel, as the very popular Bhojpuri superstar and the much smaller Bollywood actor, are the only two contestants nominated for elimination from Bigg Boss, this weekend.
“Mr Tiwari holds tremendous influence with the audiences because of his superstardom in Bhojpuri cinema. Does such slander against an upcoming actor like Ashmit, suit a man of Mr Tiwari’s clout and stature,” asked Ashmit’s publicist.
