Balika Vadhu actor Sheetal Khandal, aka Gehna, is very furious at Bigg Boss 13 contestant Siddhartha Shukla’s actions.
“Besides always fighting with Rashami Desai and others, he recently claimed to side with Arti Singh in her fight with Siddharth Dey (hand task), trying to showcase himself as someone who respects women.
But many in the industry are aware of his true colors. I myself have been victim of his sexist behavior when we were working together in Balika Vadhu. He has tried on many girls, you know what I mean,” says Sheetal, who has also done one Hindi and several Rajasthani flicks, besides music videos.
“He would not only touch me inappropriately, but would often use very crude double meaning language.”
“All this annoyed me a lot, but being new in the industry, I was hesitant to complain. Eventually, I gathered enough courage to approach the production house. Sadly, they did not bother much; rather, word soon reached Shukla, who then started venting his anger by refusing to shoot with me.”
“Later, some co-actors convinced me to bury the hatchet and become friends with Shukla in the interests of the show, to which I. agreed.”
“But alas, he was soon back to his wicked ways.”
In closing, Sheetal says, “Siddharth, being a very egoistic person, does not brook anyone saying no to his bidding. And if you risk going against him, he behaves very rudely, as can be seen in Bigg Boss, especially with Rashami Desai.”
