Bigg Boss 16 contestant Sumbul Touqeer has been making lot of buzz due to her alleged obsession and over protective attitude towards Shalin Bhanot. On recent Weekend Ka Vaar, Salman Khan bashed Sumbul Touqeer for getting involved in Mc Stan-Shalin Bhanot’s fight and not letting Tina Datta talk to Shalin. This happened after Sumbul hugged Shalin tightly to take him away from fight. After which, Tina lashed out at Sumbul for being possessive about Shalin and not letting her talk to him. However, Sumbul denied it saying she never stopped Shalin to talk to Tina. Sumbul also said that she doesn’t have any feelings for Shalin and only considers him a good friend.
Despite of her repeatedly saying No, the makers have kept on saying that she is looking like a one-sided lover on TV. Viewers have criticized makers for setting a false narrative and ruining the image of a 19-year old girl by questioning her character on national tv. Many actors like Dolly Bindra, Devoleena, Rajiv Adatia, Manasvi Vashisht among others come out in support for Sumbul and slammed makers for character assassinating a girl and many slammed Tina for playing dirty with Sumbul.

And now, actor Gaurav Chopra has extended support to Sumbul Touqeer with a hard-hitting note as he slams makers for shaming a girl on TV. He tweeted, “Has #biggboss not heard of #nomeansno? Why are they trying to insinuate that a young girl likes someone romantically when she s vehemently saying no. To the point of disgracing and emotionally tormenting her. Haven’t we all seen possessive friendships in school and college?”
Another tweet reads, “This : because the episode had to start by deflating a contestant who was adament. Once he got defensive, the rest was easy. This is how they manipulate. Shame on them for shaming a young girl in the process. Even if she does, it’s her prerogative to say yes or no.#BiggBoss16.”
The tweet further reads, “Even though I’m not a fan of any of them, this was truly avoidable. #SumbulTouqueerKhan #ShalinBhanot #TinaDutta.”
