He was seen in Big Boss as the mastermind contestant who made the noises for all the right reasons. He was also in season 11 and was an overnight sensation as the audience loved his approach. However, behind this façade of joviality, he was concealing several other secrets which have been a matter of tormenting concern for the producer.
The host and the producer have openly lashed out at Parth Samthaan, Priyank Sharma and Shilpa Shinde for harassing him in shoots due to his sexuality. He also said that after the passing away of Sushant Singh Rajput, if something happens, these three will clearly be culpable for that.
Vikas came out and owned the fact that he is a bisexual and dated Priyank in the past. Priyank made a name for himself in Splitsvilla and Big Boss
2. Sonu Nigam:
The most darling singer of Bollywood opened up significantly on the concept of music mafia and claimed that nepotism has a different incarnation in the music industry and it is like a ghastly challenge for an individual to survive the claws of this monstrosity. People generally overlook the talent and sticks to favouritism to suit their needs. He also slammed Salman Khan indirectly, stating that the Bhaijaan of Bollywood has been a major name in the mafia.
3. Sikandar Kher
Without directly pointing fingers at someone, the actor brought out the fact talking behind people’s backs is not something wise. Overwhelmed by the grief, he shared in a video message citing that not everyone has someone to talk to and if people can’t be nice to someone, they shouldn’t say anything bad either.
4. Abhinav Kashyap
In an incendiary philippic against Salman, Sohail and Arbaaz Khan which was posted on his Facebook account, he implicated them in making his life in the industry a living hell. Directpr of Dabangg pointed out the injustice carried on by the charity foundation of Salman Khan called Being Human.
He even claimed that the family is directly responsible for money laundering and has also implored the cops to investigate in the same. To make matters worse for him, his brother, Anurag Kashyap, who is one of the most illustrious names in Bollywood, chose to stay away from the filth.
5. Sapna Bhavnani
One of the most outspoken celebrities in Bollywood, Sapna Bhavnani is a celebrity hairstylist who has worked closely with MS Dhoni and Sushant Singh Rajput.
Her dalliance with boldness is a long-known story in Bollywood where he took down Amitabh Bachchan in the #MeToo movement, tweeting, “Have personally heard so many stories of Bachchan’s sexual misconduct and I hope those women come out. His hypocrisy is sooooo tired. #Metoo #MeTooIndia.”
It’s no secret Sushant was going through very tough times for the last few years. No one in the industry stood up for him nor did they lend a helping hand. To tweet today is the biggest display of how shallow the industry really is. No one here is your friend. RIP ✨ pic.twitter.com/923qAM5DkD

6. Ashish Chowdhry
After losing his sister and brother-in-law in the tragic attack of 26/11, the Beyhadh actor started grappling with income loss and also underlying mental issues. His friends played a crucial role in helping him to stage a turnaround.
His statement was, “humans sadly have an appetite for negativity”. They gorge on gossip, backbiting and judging. It is business for some and entertainment for many. And insensitively is a more dreadful virus than coronavirus. It’s spread deep. That needs a cure. We need to share sensitivity. Share love”.
7. Ritvik Dhanjani
Sharing a very close bond with Sushant from his Pavitra Rishta days, Ritvik has claimed that all of us are responsible for the passing away of Sushant. Tagging the industry as fake, he said that we are all busy in passing comments, gossip and hate against others. He also claimed that people around him do a hateful thing without even realizing that what they are leading this to.
8. Shamita Shetty
After the passing away of the Chicchore star, Shamita Shetty penned down an extremely visceral message and also owned up the fact that she too had to grapple with depression for a considerable period of time.
Her exact words were, “We all have the inner strength to take on anything that this world throws at us, we just have to channelise it and confront it head-on.” Shamita Shetty wrote how she has dealt with a dark phase in her life too. I know the pain because I’ve been through it.. it took me a while to recognise and accept it..to muster up the courage, look it right in the eyes n say I’m stronger than you .. n I will beat you”
9. Kangana Ranaut
The Queen actress let her limits loose as she took the industry head-on with her powerful video on Instagram. In fact, she called out all the big production houses, big stars and definitely big banner films, claiming that people have also tried to do this with her in order to push her to commit a similar tragic act.
In fact, in her battle to stardom, she has also been termed psychotic.
