Bollywood and Punjabi film actor Arya Babbar had several heated exchange with co-contestant Puneet Issar during his stint on “Bigg Boss 8” and he accused the senior actor of playing dirty politics inside the house.
Besides the verbal fights, the 32-year-old actor also engaged in a physical tussle with Puneet, which resulted in the latter being punished and confined to a make-shift jail inside the Bigg Boss house.
“A distinctive characteristic of every person was highlighted on the show —sweet, self-obsessed, quarrelsome, dumb and hypocrite. Puneet Issar was obnoxious, cheap and dirty. He represents the dirt and murk of the society. He would call someone his son and daughter, and then later talk bad behind their backs,” Arya told PTI after his eviction from the show.
Arya, who is the son of actor-politician Raj Babbar and theater personality Nadira Babbar, said that he tried his best to be respectful towards Puneet but the “Mahabharat” star thwarted his endeavors with his behavior. “He trashed Punjabi cinema, which is like my mother. I owe a lot to Punjabi cinema and he has no right to rubbish it,” said Arya.
