Bigg Boss 5 runner-up, Sidharth Bhardwaj has recently refused to enter a pub in Sydney, Australia. The VJ actor was in Australia for hosting an event and he decided to go to a pub, but when he reached their, he denied the entry in a pub.
And when Sidharth asked the bouncer about this, then he came to know that the tattoo around his neck became a reason for this.
The bouncers got suspicious of Sidharth as he sported tattoos around his neck- a regular thing among the Australian gangster groups. Talking to a daily Sidharth said, “I tried to reason it out with them, but it yielded no result. The incident shook me, as it amounted to racism against people with tattoos. How can a person’s character be judged on the basis of his tattoos?”
“Considered to be extremely ruthless, one of the characteristics of these gangsters is the tattoos on their neck. So, maybe, they mistook me to be a bikie. The fact that I don’t have conventional Indian looks could have fuelled their suspicion.” he added.
Sidharth Bhardwaj is the winner of Splitsvilla in 2008, he had also participated in Bigg Boss 5 and emerged as the 2nd runner-up of the show in 2011. He later challenged his fears in Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 6 in 2015 but could not make it far.
