A piece of fake news is being circulated which claims that makers of Bigg Boss 16 have slashed her reimbursement by 50 per cent post the announcement of the extension of the show. The news claims that Sumbul, who is the highest paid contestant in the house, will now get half of what she has been getting. Not only is this claim false, it is also one which is breaking her fans’ hearts.
Opposing this news vehemently, her father, Touqeer Khan says that this is a just a PR gimmick by the other contestants’ teams to save face. “Ye sirf dusre PR dwara sumbul ki image or popularity se dar kar,use sideline karne ke liye kiya jaa raha hai (This is being done because other PRs are scared of Sumbul’s popularity and they want to sideline her). In yesterday, episode, we saw how Priyanka and her friends were trying to nominate Sumbul. Tina wanted to save Ankit and that is why she was forced to not take Sumbul’s name,” he says.
Meanwhile, the celebrity management team was is responsible for locking the contract between Bigg Boss makers and the actress, has also denied this news. Santosh Gupta from Pinnacle Celebrity Management, who manages Sumbul says, “The report by a website of Sumbul’s price slashing is baseless. Sumbul is doing well and is winning hearts. It’s strange that the specific website wrote whatever they felt like to get attention and hits. Sumbul is inside the house and her fans all over the world are happy seeing her in the Bigg Boss house.”
The actress has really been doing her best in the house. She was one of the captains recently as well and has been clearly speaking her mind. Besides this, she has also made some true friends inside the house and is playing the game well.
