Every year, during the broadcast of the infamous reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ one or two contestants, are constantly in headlines for whole three months, for either their controversial statements or fake affairs in the house. This year, the name is supposedly Television actress Hina Khan.

Ever since the actress has entered the house, not one day has passed without her making news for her cryptic comments on co-contestants or others. In the latest controversy, a video clip of Hina while claiming to have rejected two South Indian films due to the requirement of weight gain is going viral.

Many found Hina’s statement, “I know that they (South Indian producers) want their heroines to gain weight and flaunt their bulging figures. I was in fact offered two films by two very big production houses which I refused since they asked me to gain weight as well,” offending.

In India, South Indian films are treated with equal respect and dignity as any Bollywood actor and in such situations, Hina’s demeaning comment didn’t sit well with many South Indian celebrities who condemned her statements on social media platforms but one voice which was most heard was the actress Hansika.

After starting her career as a child artist, Hansika Motwani was able to find her footing in the South Indian film industry and cannot be more proud of her success. The actress was enraged after hearing Hina’s comment, following which she slammed the BB11 contestant on Twitter.

In a series of tweets, Hansika lashed out at Khan for demeaning the South Indian film industry and calling the actress down south ‘bulging’. Motwani called Hina’s statements bullshit.

Following Hansika, South Indian actress Nakhat Khan who is known by her stage name Khushbu Sundar also expressed her disappointment with a tweet that read, “They need lessons from south on how to be dignified.. That's why they remain where they are and our girls zoom past them.”
