Pradeep Antony has shared a series of screenshots of his WhatsApp conversations with those connected with Bigg Boss Tamil season 7, including Vanitha Vijayakumar.
The controversy surrounding the ongoing season of Bigg Boss Tamil is seemingly getting out of control. Former contestant Vanitha Vijaykumar on Sunday accused one of Pradeep Antony's supporters of attacking her last night and leaving her with an injured eye.
Vanitha also shared a picture showing her swollen eye putting Pradeep in a tight spot. Following this, Pradeep shared a series of screenshots of his WhatsApp conversations with those connected with Bigg Boss Tamil season 7, including Vanitha.
"Clarification: I really don't have anything against any of my contestants or anyone. I speak like this with them. @vanithavijayku1 I'm not aware of what happened to you, but I feel sorry for you. Take rest. Jovika is smart, she can win it by herself, she doesn't need your help," Pradeep captioned the tweet, showing his message history with Vanitha.
The message indicates that Pradeep and Vanitha tried to reconcile amid a massive backlash on social media over Pradeep's unexpected ouster from the show. After his eviction, Pradeep had conversations with his ex-fellow contestant Ananya Rao and the father of Aishu, one of the participants of season 7.
As per Pradeep's screenshots, Aishu's father requested him to "save his daughter" from Nixen. Aishu's father purportedly also apologised to Pradeep as he claimed his daughter "misused" his name and was being manipulated by Maya and Poornima.
It seems by sharing these screenshots, Pradeep wanted to establish that he nurtured no ill feelings towards any of the contestants, whom he deems the reason for his defeat on the show. And it's also an attempt to put as much distance between himself and his alleged supporters, who engage in violence.
"I don't know if people think I'm mad and abusive. If someone assumes that and behaves in that way using me as an example. I really can't be responsible for that. This is how I speak to people associated with this game. I really see this as a game and I love it," added Pradeep.
Pradeep was evicted from the show following a series of allegations by other housemates. His ouster became the most talked about event of this season, with polarising reactions.
