Bigg Boss 14: MNS leader issues warning against Jaan Kumar Sanu for 'insulting' Marathi language, channel seeks apology


Today, President Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) Cinema Wing Amey Khopkar, issued a warning to Bigg Boss 14 contestant Jaan Kumar Sanu after Tuesday's episode aired. Amey, in a tweet, alleged that Jaan, who is the son of renowned singer Kumar Sanu and his former wife Rita Bhattacharya, has insulted the Marathi language in the show. In Tuesday's episode, Jaan was engaged in a heated conversation with Nikki Tamboli and Rahul Vaidya. When Nikki tried to calm him down and sort things out, she spoke to him in Marathi. Unknown to the language, the 26-year-old singer asked the actress to talk to him only in Hindi and no other language. 

Amey, in a tweet, said that he will make sure his career is destroyed if he plans to stay in Mumbai. Warning Jaan further, Amey added that he will ensure that the singer will be 'annoyed' with himself very soon. In addition to this, Amey issued a video message asking for an apology from Colors. If not, he said the shooting will be stalled.
