After Rakhi, Sherlyn targets Salman over Sajid being on 'Bigg Boss 16'

New Delhi, Jan 19 (IANS) After filing an FIR against Rakhi Sawant, actress Sherlyn Chopra has trained her guns on Bollywood superstar Salman Khan for making #MeToo accused Sajid Khan a part of the reality show 'Bigg Boss 16'.

Interacting with the media, Sherlyn said: "Kya Salman Khan ke liye apni dosti nibhana zyada zaruri hai ya mahilaon ke liye stand lena. Agar hum unki behene hote to bhi kya vo yehi karte. Kyu vo aur sab khamosh hai. Sajid Khan ko celebrity ke taur pe dikhaya ja raha hai show par, aur sab khamosh hai... (Is it more important for Salman Khan to establish friendship or take stand for women? If we were are his sisters, had he done the same? Why is he and everyone else is silent. Sajid is being shown as a celebrity in the show but everyone is silent)."

She then spoke about taking action against the makers of the show and the channel.

Sherlyn also bashed Rakhi Sawant for supporting Sajid and Raj Kundra, and questioned her as to why she always supports #MeToo accused and is always against women.

Ever since Sajid appeared on 'Bigg Boss 16', Sherlyn has been agaainst the decision while Rakhi has been backing the filmmaker. This has led to a major tiff between the two.

"Jab bhi mai mahilaon ke shoshan ke virodh mein awaaz uthati hu, Rakhi Sawant jaise keede makode aakar mujhe vaisya kehne lagte hai. Kyunki ye log anapadh hai gavar hai... (Whenever I raise my voice against exploitation of women, insects like Rakhi Sawant come up and call me a prostitute)."

Rakhi has been detained at the Amboli police station in Mumbai because of the complaint filed by Sherlyn against her, in which she accused her of using objectionable language and posting obscene videos and photos.

Sherlyn also tweeted about Rakhi's arrest.
