Veteran television actor Sudesh Berry has expressed how he felt after “Bigg Boss 14” contestant Rubina Dilaik was unable to recall his name.
For those unversed, Berry and Dilaik have worked together on the daily soap "Shakti".
It all began when Rubina was asked to name her co-stars during a task on the reality show. Unable to recall, she could only remember Berry’s onscreen name Harak Singh. After a few moments she got it right.
When a fan picked up the same issue on Twitter, Rubina’s other co-star Kamya Punjabi wrote, “Yes he has really taken this to his heart! In the mor he came 2 me n said “Hello, my name is sudesh berry, just thought of confirming u still know na” my heart broke into thousand pieces! Too bad this is! Now people can troll me sayin dat i m kavita’s frnd but jo sach hai woh hai (Truth is truth).”
Follwing this, Sudesh quote-tweeted Kamya and added, “Apne 40 years ke career meh itni badi fumbling nahi Dekhi... everyday is a learning day #BB14 @ColorsTV #shakti #MyNameIsSudeshBerry (I have not seen such a huge fumbling in my entire career spanning 40 years).”
Following Berry’s comments on the microblogging site, Rubina’s sister Jyotika apologised on her sister’s behalf.
She wrote, “@berry_sudesh Sir, i apologise on behave of my sister. I feel the task had jumbled up her thoughts for which she took few seconds to recollect your name. It makes me sad how people are manipulating things believe me sir she has huge respect for you."
“During the task #RubinaDilaik was trying to focus on her game amidst she took few seconds to recall Sudesh Sir’s name. Task k pressure mai Rubina vo bhuli nahi thi because thodi der baad unhone khud Sir ka name bola, kisi ne yaad nahi dilaya unko (Rubina did not forget even under the pressure of the task because she named Sir before anyone could prompt her)," she added.
