'Bigg Boss': Imam Siddique slams Salman Khan?
Zee Media Bureau/ Gayatri Sankar
Mumbai: Imam Siddique, perhaps the only man who has no reservations angering superstar Salman Khan is back with his antics yet again.
The ‘Bigg Boss 6’ contestant, who had an infamous verbal spat with the Bollywood heavyweight, took to his Facebook account to write about Salman’s deep involvement in the show.
His FB page read:
“F.Y.I: to whomsoever this may concern. Mr. Salman Khan has stated in an interview that I had no work prior to bigg boss hence was frustrated. Factually inaccurate.”
It further read, “As a matter of fact, it was me that Salman had hired as a choreographer for a film that he was acting in and producing before he signed his first ever feature film. The actress was none other than my dear friend Ericca De Sousa Vohra & the co producer/ director was Mishal Varma. Incidentally I have yet to be paid for that assignment. After this first ever unpleasant experience in #bollywood, I realised I ‘n e v e r’ wanted to work in bollywood (sic).”
“Another point that I’d like to clarify is that I was called for bigg boss season 1 as a casting director, by Mr. Arjun Menon but since I was already on contract with Eskimo models at the time I turned them down. Every year since, I have been approached for the seasons but constantly declined.
Last year because I was told it would be a parivarik family oriented show I decided to agree to go in as a wild card entry. Yes I did message Salman cause I saw that contestants in the house were disrespecting the platform and the opportunity. Claiming that they could make Rs 50 lakhs in a couple of projects and need not have to suffer the indignity of 72 hours of physical labour due to a task that too on the auspicious occasion of dhanteras. I messaged Salman to say that they had hired incompetent idiots who did not deserve to be there and I was keen to go. Over to you Mr. Khan…(sic)”
After the winner of the last season of ‘Bigg Boss’ was announced, Imam was quoted as saying, “It (argument) was unpleasant and unwarranted. I think I should have done a reality check. He is a bigger superstar. I am ashamed of it. But I don`t regret it.”
But now it would be interesting to see who has the last word- “Time Out”!!!
