For the unversed, family members of the contestants have entered Bigg Boss 16 house as a part of the family week. Earlier Tina Datta and Shalin Bhanot’s mothers, Priyanka Chahar Choudhary’s brother, Shiv Thakare’s mother and Sajid Khan’s filmmaker sister Farah Khan also entered the show.
Meanwhile, earlier this week, Sumbul’s team also issued a statement alleging the actress is being mocked in the reality show. The statement mentioned that Sumbul’s ‘ongoing repetitive mockery’ in Bigg Boss 16 has ‘forced’ her team to react and condemn it. Sumbul’s team also alleged that the actress’ ‘individuality has been questioned’ several times in the Bigg Boss 16 house. Not just this, but they also claimed that her ‘character has also been criticized’.
“We condemn the constant mockery of Sumbul Tougeer Khan on national television. Her individuality has been suppressed in order to highlight other things. She persisted, and we shall as well," a part of their statement read.
