Bigg Boss 16: Sajid Khan reveals he didn’t have money to perform the last rites of his father; says, Salman’s father Salim Khan helped him with the money
The latest episode of Bigg Boss 16 witnessed a massive fight between Archana Gautam and Sajid Khan. After things settled in the house, Sajid was seen talking with MC Stan and Shiv Thakare where he poured his heart out and revealed that he didn’t have enough money to perform the last rites of his father.
With tears in his eyes, Sajid said, “Soch, ek 14 saal ka bacha rickshaw pakad ke ja raha hai kuch rishtedaaron ke ghar yeh puchne ki daddy off hogaye hai kuch mil sakta hai kya (money). Ek rishtedaar aisa tha, usne servant ko bola ki usko bolo main ghar pe nahi hu aur main nikal gaya wahan se aur rote rote ja raha tha. Mummy ke side ke rishtedaar the unhone help kiya mayaat ke liye. Lekin jo aadmi ne help kiya na woh tha Salman Khan ka papa Salim Uncle. Daaru pee ke mare the mere papa mere saamne, poora liver phat gaya tha, aankh se khoon, muh se khoon, 2 min mein bistar mein guzar gaye. Jahan pe maine dafnaya tha na waha Salim uncle aaye the aur unhone mujhe paise diye. Un paison se maine 2 mahine ka rashan bhara tha, bijli ka bill bhara tha.” (I was just 14 when my father passed away, I went to my relatives’ place with news to ask for financial help, but one of them lied and asked his servant to say he wasn’t at home. I left his place crying as I didn’t know what to do. My maternal relatives helped with the farewell. My father had died in front of my eyes due to alcoholism, his liver burst and he was bleeding from his eyes and mouth. The only person who actually helped at that time was Salman Khan’s father, uncle Salim. He came to the Kabristan and handed over some cash, with that money I bought a ration for 2 months and paid my electricity bill.)
Abdu, Nimrit, Shiv, and MC Stan consoled him and asked him to eat food. Sajid agreed to eat food after Bigg Boss intervened through Shiv and Nimrit.
