Looks like Bigg Boss 11 contestant Akash Dadlani has taken the phrase ‘Kiss your enemy’ too seriously. In an alarming video that has surfaced online, Akash can be seen forcibly kissing co-contestant Shilpa Shinde. What is more disturbing is the fact that when she tries to push him away, he brazenly responds by saying what will you do now. The video clip has gone viral, with many netizens calling it “sexual harassment”. Some also said that the Bigg Boss 11 house is not a safe place for women anymore. The Twitterati was enraged and even asked for Akash Dadlani to be evicted from the house.
The short 13-second video clip shows Puneesh Sharma, Shilpa and Akash in the garden area of the Bigg Boss house. Suddenly, Akash forces a kiss on Shilpa who pushes him away. She says, “Bahut maar khaega, thappad khaega abhi. Mujhe nahi baat karna,” (You will get a slap from me. I don’t want to talk to you), but Akash continues to harass her. He holds her and retorts, “Kya karegi, kya karegi?” (What will you do?).

It might be noted that since the beginning of the show, Akash and Shilpa had been close friends, with Akash even calling Shilpa his mother. Shilpa, on her part, was very fond and protective of Akash. Some of the Bigg Boss 11 contestants had also accused Shilpa of favouring Akash even when he was wrong. However, the two grew apart in the last couple of weeks. Akash was hurt when Shilpa allegedly stopped his ‘best friend’ Puneesh from helping him becoming the captain of the house during a task. After that incident, viewers saw Akash throwing a fit and openly breaking his bond with Puneesh and Shilpa. He also teamed up with Arshi Khan to taunt and trouble Shilpa Shinde. But, people following the show would know that Akash is known to switch sides frequently.
A few episodes ago, when host Salman Khan asked Shilpa Shinde if she would ever accept Akash Dadlani again, she refused (she has forgiven him in the show several times). And this, by Akash’s own admission, encouraged him to mend fences with his erstwhile friend Shilpa Shinde. Viewers could see him trying hard to patch up with Shilpa. Not just that, he also tried to dissolve the differences between Arshi Khan and Shilpa Shinde, but was unsuccessful.
Here is what the Twitterati has been saying about the video:

People want action:
#EvictAkashDadlani was a hashtag many users used:
Users question Akash’s behaviour:
It is about the rights of a woman, say users:
Both Akash and Shilpa have been nominated this week for elimination. However, they are unaware that Bigg Boss has closed the voting lines for this week. This means that either of the two would probably be taken to a secret room, from where they can see the activities of the housemates.
