New Delhi: The makers of the reality show ‘Bigg Boss 16’ are clearly doing all they can to keep fans glued to their screens. Shalin Bhanot and MC Stan recently had a huge fight over a nomination task on the show. A furious argument between the two escalated into name-calling and death threats, and the roommates had to step in to prevent physical violence.
Now, Shalin Bhanot’s parents have gone public with their concern over the rapper’s blatant murder threats against their kid. His parents took to his Instagram after he got death threats on national television and sent an open message to his supporters.
The letter reads: “Namaste and thank you for all the love you have all been showering on our son Shalin. Shalin signed up for this amazing journey, one with lots of challenges. We are sure he will come out emerging as a winner of hearts and love. However, we are worried! Last night, seeing our son getting death threats on national television has been worrisome. Post the episode, the threats have continued to pour in via fandoms and we wonder how is this ok? It’s a reality show but at the end of the day it’s for entertainment.”
They added, “Why are we bringing life and death and death threats into this all? Our family is genuinely worried and we want to know how this allowed on national television? We are worried about our son, his safety and the safety of our family. There’s nothing beyond our son’s happiness and safety that matters to us. From Shalin Ke Mummy Aur Daddy”.
The open letter gained widespread attention, and supporters began posting their reactions online. The question now is whether or not the show’s producers and Salman Khan will address the issue or try to sweep it under the rug.
Currently, ‘Bigg Boss 16’ has been given a four-week extension till February 2023 due to the show’s rising popularity.
