Lock Upp: Zeeshan Khan criticises Payal Rohatgi’s behaviour; says, “I was aghast that someone could stoop so low”

Zeeshan Khan criticizes Payal Rohatgi for her “terrorist” remark.

Lock Upp becomes the epitome of unexpected things. The unexpected eviction of Zeeshan Khan from Lock Upp on Monday came as the shock after assaulting co-inmate Azma Fallah. The actor said he was enraged by her constant criticism of his mother and girlfriend.

In his conversation with Indian Express, Zeeshan expressed his displeasure over his eviction, claiming that he had already apologised on television and even accepted the punishment, therefore the expulsion came out of the blue. He said, “When Karan Kundrra came and informed that I had to leave, I was taken aback. Previously, I had apologised and even did 50 sit-ups as a punishment. I know that I may have overdone it but honestly, no one knows the mental torture I had to face from Azma.”

He further narrates how Azma mentally tortured him by telling nonsense about his girlfriend and mother. The actor further recalled an argument with Payal Rohatgi in which she called him a “terrorist.” He said, “My religion was brought up during the fight, which started over habits of food consumption. The halal meat topic went on to Payal calling me a terrorist and so many other degrading words. I was aghast that someone could stoop so low.”

He further stated, “However, she was given a free pass as Kangana Ranaut mentioned that it’s Payal’s personal stand and not the makers. She wasn’t even asked to apologise to me or the community. How was that acceptable? She was only nominated for a week. And even when Payal tried to half-heartedly apologise it was for a task, she never meant it. I just wonder if mental anguish is ever taken into consideration.”
