When actor Chandni came to the controversial talk show “With Nazim Joy” this week, Joy asked her about the “career and character of Tania Hossain.” Theatre and TV actor Tania is the fiancé of popular musician Bappa Mazumder. Bappa was previously married to Chandni since 2008.
Tania took offence to Joy’s question about her and expressed her discontent on social media.
“I never thought I would have to educate a senior presenter,” said Tania in her Facebook post on Friday. “But those of us who are working in the media, know how hard we have to work to pick the right words and expressions. When you are a host, you don’t have the right to disrespect the guest or any other person you’re talking about.”
The actor also expressed that the programme producer needs to share the blame: “The responsibility to distinguish ‘fun’ from ‘disrespect’ falls on the shoulders of the producer as well as the host. The producer is responsible for the whole show. No matter how important the guest is, the control should lie with the producer.”
She later demanded that Joy should apologize for asking such a question.
