She stated that Mahesh hugged and kissed other contestants too, and that, he spent the least amount of time with her during his stay in the Bigg Boss OTT 2 house. She also mentioned that nobody had a problem when Manisha asked for hugs and kisses from other contestants.
She added that she does not feel the need for Mahesh or her to clarify the incident. "He hugged and kissed Abhishek also. He told Jad Hadid that he’s the most beautiful man. Manisha Rani’s fans are getting a little hyper… but what do they have to say when she makes the lives of other females a little difficult," Pooja stated.
