OMG! ‘Mahabharat’s Duryodhan, Puneet Issar, was royally ignored by Rekha for THIS reason on ‘Bigg Boss 8’
Due to the nationwide lockdown television broadcasters have been making the most of it. Old classic mythological shows like ‘Ramayan’ and ‘Mahabharat’ are being aired again on the small screen. The audience have been reminiscing the old memories about the star cast of these shows. But, a rather unpleasant situation of the past has come ahead, when Rekha entered the Bigg Boss 13 house and she had completely ignored ‘Mahabharat’s Duryodhana aka Puneet Issar.
It was during the weekend ka vaar episode in ‘Bigg Boss 8’ that Rekha had come on the show. She did the usual rituals of meeting Salman Khan– the host of the show and shook a leg with him. Later, she entered the house to meet the contestants and what followed had shocked the whole nation.
Rekha greeted all the contestants but royally ignored Puneet and did not even bat an eyelash at him. He seemed to be standing there Alone and it looked like he had a clue or two about why she gave him the cold shoulder.Back in the 80s, Puneet Issar had made huge headlines for his fight sequence in the film ‘Coolie’, which had left Amitabh Bachchan severely injured as Puneet had hit him in the stomach while shooting for it.
It is speculated that since Rekha has a soft corner for Big B it could be the reason why she holds a grudge against Puneet.
Later in the show, Salman asked all the contestants to dedicate something to Rekha and when it was Puneet’s turn, he said, “Rekha ma’am ko dekh kar mujhe kuch thoughts yaad aa rahe hai.” Rekha interrupted and said, “Mujhe aapko dekh ke, sorry to interrupt you, mujhe aapko dekh ke bohot saare thoughts aate hain.” Puneet then recited a few lines, “Jiski saza sirf tum ho, mujhe aisa kuch gunah karna hai.” Rekha took a dig at him saying, “Abhi kiya nahi ki aur karna hai?”
Well, clearly something was not right between the two.
Right now, Puneet is back on Television as his show ‘Mahbarat’ has been re-running on DD National.
