Singer and Bigg Boss 14 contestant Rahul Vaidya has been receiving a lot of flak online for his nepotism remark against Jaan Kumar Sanu.
The controversy erupted during the nomination task when Rahul Vaidya said, “Jisko main nominate karna chahata hun woh hai Jaan because mujhe nepotism se sakt nafrat hai. Yahaan pe jitne bhi log aaye hain sab apni apni mehnat karke aaye hai.”
However, Jaan didn’t like what Rahul said against him. He bashed him by saying that he is fortunate that his father is Kumar Sanu. However, Rahul Vaidya further quipped that he doesn’t need a famous father.

Rahul vaidya is right— Mandeep kaur (@Mandeep92053503) October 26, 2020
On the other hand, Jaan’s mother Rita is also upset with the remark of Rahul Vaidya. While speaking to Spotboye, Jaan’s mother said that Jaan is on the show due to his own hard work.
She called Rahul’s remark as ‘very insulting and disrespectful statement’.
“If Rahul feels that Jaan is in the show because of nepotism then how come they are both on the same platform right now? If according to Rahul there is a difference between the insider and outsider then how come he is on the same platform where my son is? Jaan’s father Kumar Sanu has sung almost 23000 songs till now so being his son he must have at least sang 23 songs in the industry with his father’s support. But aisa nahi hai kyunki Jaan ne jo kuch bhi achieve kiya hai apni badolat aya hai,” Jaan’s mother said.
