Sumbul’s team gives an official statement

Sumbul's team has addressed the issue of her emotions being misconstrued on Bigg Boss 16 throughout the performance with an official statement. The statement read, “In response to the ongoing repetitive mockery in the show of Miss Sumbul Touqeer Khan, we, as the official team, would like to condemn it. A lot of things are happening in the show, and moreover, it's getting repetitive, which has forced us to release this statement. Our silence was perceived as weakness, but it was really just a matter of being prudent and waiting for the appropriate opportunity to speak up. Sumbul began working at a very young age, served as the star of one of the most popular shows, and her accomplishments have always made us proud. Her dedication to her career and selflessness helped her forge her own unique identity. For the first time this season, tears have been discussed as a sign of cowardice or weakness. Sumbul's emotions have received the greatest attention, particularly when everyone's emotions have been assessed differently.”
