Earlier this week, Rahul nominated Jaan for eviction over nepotism. For the uninitiated, Jaan is legendary Bollywood singer Kumar Sanu’s son.
In the episode, Rahul Vaidya, who is a singer, said, “Jisko main nominate karna chahata hun woh hai Jaan because mujhe nepotism se sakt nafrat hai. Yahaan pe jitne bhi log aaye hain sab apni apni mehnat karke aaye hai (I want to nominate Jaan because I hate nepotism. All the people here have made it on their own).”
Expressing his disapproval over Rahul’s statements, Jaan replied by saying that he is fortunate that his father is Kumar Sanu. However, Rahul countered and said that doesn’t need a famous father.
Rahul’s statement made Jaan very furious and he screamed to say: “Baap pe mat jaa”.
Soon after the episode, the ‘N’ word started trending on Twitter with many social media users picking sides for or against Rahul Vaidya and Jaan Kumar Sanu.
