Bigg Boss Kannada 7 has been witnessing a lot of drama and conflicts as the contestants have recently begun showing their true sides in the house. It all started with open nominations lately wherein the contestants had nominated each other citing their respective decisions. While a lot has been going on in the glasshouse, Bigg Boss Kannada 7 recently got mired in controversy after one of his contestants allegedly hurt sentiments of a community. We are talking about assistant director-writer Chaitra Kottur who was seen making a contentious statement on the show.

It happened during her conversation with Harish Raj wherein she was expressing her disappointment towards Deepika Das for nominating her for elimination this week. Chaitra stated, "Deepika shares a very good rapport with the other inmates and not me. She hugs them and even feeds them but does nothing of that sort with me. What is this for? Are we 'UNTOUCHABLES'?”

Her choice of words didn’t go down well with the Ambedkar Sena in Bidar district who called out for a statewide strike against the BBK7 contestant. This isn’t all. It was also reported that the group will also be protesting outside the Bigg Boss sets in Bidadi.

On the other hand, given the gravity of the situation, Chaitra was called to the confession room wherein she was asked to clear the air about the controversy and share her views on ‘untouchables’.

Talking about it, Chaitra clarified that she didn’t intend to hurt anyone’s sentiments and also apologised for the same.  She said, “I have never used the word 'Untouchables' with reference to any caste, creed or religion. My sincere apologies to everyone who has been hurt by my words and it was not intentional. I am a follower of Kuvempu and believe in unifying people. I only believe in humanity and support practical thinking".

We wonder if the Amdekar Sena will take her apology or will continue with their protest today.
