Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra seems to be falling for more trouble these days. Sometime back Sidharth visited the sets of popular reality show Bigg Boss Season 11 to promote his film ‘Aiyaary’. While Sidharth was on the sets of the show, he said something which got him into the ongoing trouble.
When ‘Aiyaary’ team visited Bigg Boss, Manoj Bajpayee asked Sidharth to deliver a dialogue in Bhojpuri: “Shikar to sab kehu karela, lekin baagh jaisan sikar kehu na kare.” He repeated the lines after Manoj and said, “Aisa lag raha ki neeche baitha hua hai, latrine me. Bathroom me kar rahe hain ki kaha hain?”
Sidharth’s comment received instant backlash on Twitter. Actors from the Bhojpuri community, including actress Neetu Chandra, criticized the actor for his bizarre comment.

Other than Chandra, actor Manoj Tiwari also expressed his opinion on the same and said, “It’s a big insult for 22 crore people. This is very bad. We should respect every language of my country. I don’t think people will forgive him. He should apologize for his actions.”
After receiving hatred from everywhere, Malhotra took to twitter and wrote an apology.
I recently tried speaking a new language while I was on a TV show. In the process if I inadvertently hurt anyone’s feelings or sentiments, I apologise and assure you that no disrespect was meant in any way.

But even after he apologized, it looks as if people’s sentiments are badly hurt and now there is another actor who has slammed him. Bhojpuri actor Khesari Lal Yadav has spoken about the whole matter.
Yadav mentioned, “the Bhojpuri language is like our mother. No one knows about Sidharth Malhotra. Almost 5 crore people have seen my film. Malhotra spoke ill about Bhojpuri in front of Salman Khan.”
