Namish Taneja, trolled by Sidharth Shukla’s fans for calling him a “dog”
In 2019, Namish Taneja visited the Bigg Boss 13 house to celebrate the New Year with the participants. His visit, however, did not go well with Sidharth Shukla and his fans mocked Namish aggressively for referring to Sidharth as a “dog.” In an interview, Namish clarified himself and talked about the fun time he had with Shukla inside the house. He said,
See, I am not anti Sidharth then why will I call him Kutta. In fact, I will never use such words for anyone. Me and Sidharth spent really good time inside. The way we met and did masti, I didn’t even feel that we are meeting for the first time. Unfortunately, it’s just a one hour show, so everything doesn’t get telecast.”
