There are very less people who dare to make a statement against bollywood superstar Salman Khan. Celebrity hairstylist Sapna Moti Bhavnani has been very vocal about her hate for actor Salman Khan. And she has often been abused by Khan followers for it. In June, when she condemned Khan’s rape comment on Twitter, she even received rape threats for it.
The celebrity hair stylist, Sapna Bhavnani gave an interview to Hindustan Times and something went wrong after it hit the internet. As quoted in the interview :
She was asked questions about people threatening her on social media for her open dislike for Salman Khan and his rape comment and she answered like she hold no bars.
“IT’S INSULTING TO HAVE AN INDIAN MAN TALK LIKE THAT ON AN INTERNATIONAL PLATFORM. I AM EMBARRASSED TO CALL MYSELF AN INDIAN WHEN STATEMENTS LIKE THESE GO OUT WORLDWIDE. I WAS VERY VOCAL ABOUT IT ON TWITTER, AND EVERYWHERE. I GOT A LOT OF FLAK FOR IT, BUT FLAK OR STALKERS AND TROLLERS SHOULD NOT BE THE REASON WHY YOU SHOULD STOP VOICING THE TRUTH.”
She also bashed the actor and the show Bigg Boss which he hosts.
While talking about her experience in the show Bhavnani said :
“YOU HAVE A MALE CHAUVINISTIC F***ING PIG AS A HOST OF THIS F***ING SHOW, THAT INSULTS PEOPLE, SO PEOPLE WATCH THE SHOW, AND PEOPLE WORSHIP HIM ON THE SHOW BECAUSE PEOPLE WANT A JOB IN ONE OF HIS STUPID F***-ALL MOVIES WHERE HE DANCES LIKE A MONKEY – THAT’S BIG BOSS IN A NUTSHELL.”
Sapna has decided to debut as a writer and she choose not to write anything about Salman Khan in it. “This man really misuses people and I don’t’ have to give him importance… especially in my book,” says Sapna, whose memoir will be called Chapter One.
This is not the first time that she has received threats for speaking against Khan. After she came out of the Bigg Boss house, a show that Khan hosts, she was threatened with dire consequences. “Actually a lot of people told me, I was warned that you shouldn’t talk about him like that because you could get killed, and I was like, ‘what!’ I had heard rumours, but I have been channelling this ‘no fear’ thing for the past four years and I am not going to let a monkey scare me. I have been through a gang rape, I know what it feels like, I am a surviving member… there is nothing worse you can do to me really,” says Sapna, who will write about her gang rape in the book which will be published by Harper Collins India.
