He came to conquer, but was cornered instead. Actor-producer Kamal R Khan, who shot to fame with a role in the film Deshdrohi, was on Wednesday shot down by the inmates of the TV reality show Bigg Boss, which airs on Colours channel, for assaulting three contestants, including a female.
Kamal becomes the first contestant to be thrown out of the game show after he threw a water bottle at Rohit Verma and Shamita Shetty in a fit of rage.
Shamita was injured as the bottle landed on her hand. Moments later, Kamal's blood came to a boil again, and this time he almost came to blows with Raju Srivastava.
Ashvini Yardi, head of programming at Colors, confirmed the incidents, saying: "Yes, Kamal Khan has been ousted from Bigg Boss Season 3. His behavior was not acceptable. We do not advocate the use of violence as a means to settle differences. What Kamal did was completely out of line and against the rules of the Bigg Boss House, and hence was asked him to leave."
A source present on the sets revealed the timeline of Kamal's violent outbursts.
"The 13th day was about to end and the housemates were tasked with showcasing their talents in a feature called 'Talent Bonanza - Kala Ka Pradarshan'. Everyone had to give points to each other, and the housemates got irked with Kamal when he gave the least points to everyone so that he could shower Claudia Ciesla with most. Kamal has been trying to hit on Claudia for sometime now. When Kamal heard Rohit and Shamita chatting about it, he got furious."
The insider added: "Kamal then charged towards them and said that he will do as he feels like. When the two protested, Kamal threw a water bottle at them. Rohit ducked, but Shamita got hurt. Bigg Boss warned Kamal about it, but he lost it again after some time when Raju Srivastava told him that he was behaving unfairly with the women, and that he should say sorry."
"Kamal then alleged that Raju was taking sides, and in the heated argument that followed, they almost got into fisticuffs. Thankfully, Ismail Darbar got in their way. The contestants then complained that Kamal shouldn't be in the house any more, and the show decided to oust him."
