Bigg Boss and controversies go hand in hand. Jaan Kumar Sanu’s comment on the Marathi language has raised many eyebrows. With the controversy gaining stream, Colors TV, through its social media pages, apologised to the public. On October 28 episode, Jaan Kumar Sanu was summoned by Bigg Boss to the confession room. He was told that the show is watched by people from across India and hence contestants are asked not to talk about religion or community. Pulling up Jaan over his comment, Bigg Boss informed him that his words had hurt sentiments of the Marathi people. Jaan immediately apologised for his actions, stating that it was an unintentional mistake. During one of the episodes, Jaan had said, “Marathi mein baat mat kar, mujhe cheed machti hai (Don’t talk in Marathi, I get irritated).” A large section of the audience took offence and soon social media was flooded with comments criticising the young singer for disrespecting the Marathi language. MNS leader Ameya Khopkar also took to his Twitter page to write that he will see to it that Jaan doesn’t make a career in Mumbai. Jaan is the son of veteran playback singer Kumar Sanu.
