And now, Sumbul Touqeer Khan‘s co-star Manasvi Vashisht from Imlie has come out in her support. He showed his disappointment on the character assassination of Sumbul on national TV in Bigg Boss 16 house. Manasvi wrote on Instagram story, “I am deeply saddened to see the character assassination of a simple girl on national television. I have worked with Sumbul and she is a very sensible and honest girl. I am watching this season of Big Boss and it’s extremely frustrating to see how everybody is brutally attacking her character and not even a single person is taking a stand for her. This is disgusting. You tell the world that if a woman says “no” then it is a no.”
He adds, “Then why are you putting allegations on a woman that she is “obsessed” and “in love” with a man when she hasn’t said that herself? Why would you do that to her? Just because you think she is vulnerable? This is pathetic. #bigboss16 #sumbultouqeer.”
