Bigg Boss OTT 2 Fame Abhishek Malhan's Light-Hearted Video Sparks Controversy Near Lord Ganesha Statue
Abhishek Malhan, known from Bigg Boss OTT 2, faces backlash for a light-hearted video near a Lord Ganesha statue, sparking a debate on religious sentiments.
Abhishek Malhan, known for his stint on Bigg Boss OTT Season 2, is in the midst of controversy after a video surfaced of him near a Lord Ganesha statue. The clip shows Malhan, accompanied by his mother, engaged in prayer. However, the tone shifts when he attempts to light an agarbatti in a manner that some believe could be seen as disrespectful.
The video, originally shared on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) by user @sataxisoumya, quickly gained traction. In it, Malhan is seen attempting to create a humorous video, presumably for his reels, while his mother prepares for Ganpati's aarti. Unfortunately, the way he handles the agarbatti sparked outrage among viewers who accused him of hurting religious sentiments.
Responses to the video have been mixed. Some users criticized Malhan's actions, with comments ranging from disappointment to anger. One user expressed, "This is utterly disrespectful, man." Another lamented, "Devotion should come from within... really feeling sad for such acts. Our beliefs are not a tool for content... it's about respecting religion."
Yet, amidst the backlash, there were supporters who argued that the video was meant in good humor and should not be taken as a sign of disrespect. They emphasized the importance of intent, suggesting that Malhan did not have any ill intentions.
This incident follows the rivalry between Abhishek Malhan and fellow contestant Elvish Yadav on Bigg Boss OTT, which spilled over into their respective fan bases after the show.
As the controversy brews, it remains to be seen how Malhan will address the situation. Meanwhile, his fans continue to support him, pointing out that it was just a light-hearted video.
