Pratik Sehajpal happened to open the lock of the bathroom door from outside the bathroom, while Vidhi Pandya was taking a shower.
Devoleena Bhattacharjee, who had inaugurated Bigg Boss 15, has come out in support of Pratik Sehajpal after he was blamed for unhinging the bathroom lock while Vidhi Pandya was showering. She said people were 'bullying' the actor.
Devoleena shared a netizen's tweet, where Pratik was called 'disgusting'. Agreeing that the actor made a mistake, Devoleena questioned why he was only 'bullied' when Nishant Bhat was equally involved with the task.
Defending him, she said that since Pratik wouldn't get another opportunity, thus he opened the lock on the door from outside, when the door was locked from inside.

The reaction comes in a time when even Salman Khan lashed out on Pratik for his reaction towards the situation. Pratik had told Vishal Kotian that he wouldn't mind if his sister was showering and somebody else opened the lock from outside for the task. Salman said he wouldn't leave the person who did that to his sister.
After the incident, Vidhi approached Pratik. He had apologized to her stating that he wasn't aware that she was bathing inside the washroom and that he did it for the sake of the task.
Karan Kundrra warned him stating, "Don't do this to a girl next time." Tejasswi Prakash, on the other hand, explained that it could be a scary feeling for a girl, which everyone agreed on.
Before the incident, Karan, Jay Bhanushali and the jungle wasi had discussed that they will push Pratik to the limit as a part of their strategy. Whether them ganging up on him was a part of the plan or genuine concern for Vidhi, is still to be known.
