Recently evicted Bigg Boss, 14 contestant, Jaan Kumar Sanu had recently reacted to father Kumar Sanu’s statement on his ‘upbringing’ and shared that his father did not live with the family, nor did he meet his children.
Now in a recent, Kumar Sanu has hit back at Jaan’s statement strongly. In an interview with Bombay Times, Kumar Sanu clarified that he could not meet his sons because their custody was with his ex-wife Rita Bhattacharya.
Stating that he met his three sons for a limited time, Sanu shared, “After I remarried, I moved out of India because I did not have much work in Mumbai. But whenever I visited India, I would get in touch with my sons Jessy, Jeeko, and Jaan. We went out for dinner a few times. They were busy with their lives, but whenever they contacted me, I would try to be available if I was in Mumbai. We were in touch over calls.”
“My work is such that I can never be in one place for a long duration. I can’t even stay with my wife Saloni and my two daughters for a long span of time, as I have to travel all over the world for concerts,” he added.
Kumar Sanu then asked Jaan to write his name as Jaan Rita Bhattacharya instead of Jaan Kumar Sanu.
“I’ve heard him say in his interviews and also in the Bigg Boss house that his mother is his mom and dad for him. I appreciate his respect for his mom, and I believe in giving even more respect to his mother. He should write his name as Jaan Rita Bhattacharya, not Jaan Kumar Sanu because, firstly, Ritaji has done a lot for him, and secondly, people will start comparing him with me, which is not good for him as a newcomer,” Sanu said.
“I’d be the happiest father to see him successful,” he signed off.
For the uninitiated, Kumar Sanu had reacted to Jaan’s comments on remarks against the Marathi language on the show ‘Bigg Boss 14’.
