While we often see contestants leaving no stone unturned to prove themselves on reality shows, the reality of these shows often leaves them distressed. Many such incidents happened with actress Sakshi Dwivedi during her stint in Splitsvilla. A recent video clipping has gone viral where the host of the show, Sunny Leone, is literally dragging Sakshi and forcing her to take her place on the podium. She does this because Sakshi interrupts her.
“The video is about the time when we all were in the dumping zone and there was a fight between two contestants. Everybody was speaking up and trying to prove their point. I was one of those contestants who was trying to put my point across and I was just saying something and, in the flow, I didn’t hear that she said something. When I realised that she was trying to explain, and my point wasn’t complete. So somehow I interrupted her and I said sorry about it. Unfortunately, Sunny got really furious and she just crossed the line,” she says, adding, “Sunny Leone is beautiful, but just from outside. Asking me to host the show was unnecessary. Even in the future if I get a chance to host a show, I won’t be disrespectful to other human beings”.
Sakshi says, “It was very embarrassing for me. Maybe I should have not interrupted her but what she did was beyond acceptable. She dragged me and told me to stand at her place and she came to my place and stood in the dumping zone. Her behaviour was very rude, and it wasn’t a language that anyone would want to hear. People are reacting very strongly, and they are slamming Sunny. They are supporting me which is so good. There are still people who respect other people, and nobody gives a right to a host to disrespect somebody like this and drag them. This is just like taking undue advantage of your position.”

Sunny was never kind to Sakshi, says the latter. “From the very beginning, she wasn’t nice to me and since the time Uorfi came, she was taking her side. Uorfi and I became friends later and that’s a different story. Sunny was just rude to me. Off camera also, she said a lot of mean stuff that is not even recorded. I know the real face of her. One day, when we all were getting dumped, all of us got fever, maybe some viral was spread in the villa. Everyone got cough and cold. I got it at the beginning and I didn’t feel well enough to perform the water task. Meanwhile I was discussing with the team that I was not well. The rules were explained to other contestants but I had to go for the task because of course the show is bigger than these small things. And because I was there with other people discussing my problem, rules were not explained to me . But again, Sunny yelled at me there without knowing that I was not explained the rules properly. That was still okay, she said later that I should have told her that I was sick,she would have helped . But the very next day when my condition got worse and I told her to please consider, She replied to me saying, “Are you dying ? Until you are in a hospital bed, I don’t believe you are sick!”. I was shocked hearing this. All these things are still acceptable, but manhandling someone in public on a reality show is not acceptable even when I said sorry.
