Manoj Bajpai Brokers Peace For Siddharth Malhotra After Bihar, UP Erupt

Siddharth Malhotra 

Siddharth Malhotra got himself into big trouble  after making extremely derogatory comments  on  the  Bhojpuri language  during a ‘fun  session’ with  Salman Khan on BiggBoss.

While BJP’s MP from Delhi Manoj Tiwari threatened strict action against the loose-tongued entertainer, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh erupted with the youth taking to the streets shouting slogans against Malhotra and burning effigies and threatening to lodge FIRs all across the country.

 Frightened  by  what he had triggered  off,Malhotra  approached his Aiyaary co-star ManojBajpai to bail him out  of  the crisis.

One  Manoj promptly approached the other Manoj to salvage the situation, arguing thatSiddarth Malhotra said what he did out of ignorance.

 Confirming these developments, Manoj Tiwari says, “Yes, Manoj Bajpai did  call me to diffuse the situation. I don’t know if it’s right to  move on in something so serious. To denigrate a language is  not  a small matter.Even if I agree to let it go, the people  on the roads  of Bihar and UP are  not willing to forget and forgive. They are  very angry.As they should be. It  was a very irresponsible and stupid comment. A feeble apology on Twitter is not enough.”

Nevertheless Manoj Tiwari has agreed  to stop his supporters  from taking legal action.

Says  the actor-politician, “In some places they have already lodged FIRs. But I am under pressure from the film industry. I will see what  I can do.But I repeat, just by moving on the matter won’t die down.Siddharth Malhotra has insulted a whole culture.”
