Rohit Suchanti, a 22-year-old actor who has starred in Indian TV shows, was faced with “homophobic” comments from
his housemates in Big Boss, the Indian replica of Celebrity Big Brother. n particular, cricketer S. Sreesanth mocked Suchanti for his mannerisms and for the color of his shorts, saying that the man was ‘looking gay’. Another participant, actor Karanvir Bohra, also made disparaging comments about Suchanti’s sexuality. The comments enraged Vikas Gupta, a former participant on the hugely popular show and a friend of Suchanti, who also claims to have been abused while on the show.n his post, Gupta pointed out that some of the housemates also implied that Suchanti was “too fair or too good looking” to be straight and others laughed at the “homophobic jokes instead of correcting” Sreesanth—a behaviour that left him feeling “ashamed.”
