Bigg Boss 16: Sumbul Touqeer's father requests fans to not vote for her, says 'I regret sending my daughter to the show'


Sumbul Touqeer Khan, who shot to fame for playing the titular role in the daily soap Imlie, has participated in the 16th season of Bigg Boss. Her equation with Tina Datta and Shalin Bhanot has made headlines since the show started. Recently, Sumbul got yet another chance to talk to her father Touqeer Khan who connected with her through a phone call. The interaction led to enough drama inside and outside the house. 

During the call with Sumbul, Touqeer asked his daughter to break all ties with Tina and Shalin. He went on to call them 'Kameeney Log'. He further said Sumbul should kick Tina in her face. This caused major outrage on social media. Now, after the phone call created enough controversy, Touqeer spoke to a leading daily and said he regrets sending Sumbul to Bigg Boss 16. "I have raised Sumbul in a protective environment. When the offer came, I thought it would be a great means to let her understand duniyadari (world politics). Neither I nor Sumbul have followed the show, and I never realised that something like this will happen. Today, I regret that I chose to send my daughter to the show. It did more harm to her than favour," he told.

Sumbul has been nominated for eviction this week. Her father further added, "I know there are people who love her but I think it’s time she should be out. The girl who is in the house is not my daughter. She has lost her positivity and happiness. I don’t want her to go through any grief again. I would thus request her fans to not vote for her. I am praying she gets evicted this Saturday."

While talking to Sumbul over the call, Touqeer said, "Maloom hai log kitni gaaliyan derahe hai mujhe ki apni beti ka tamasha bana dia." He accused Tina and Shalin of assassinating Sumbul's character. The actress' father further slammed them and said she should make them their biggest enemies and show them their ‘aukaat’ on national TV.

Hitting back at Touqeer's unkind comments, Tina's mother recorded a special video message questioning whether it was fair to abuse and demean her daughter on a national platform. Here's what Tina's mother said.
