Sanjana Sanghi’s Humans of Bombay post deleted after backlash


Humans of Bombay, a social media outlet that documents different people’s stories of struggle and triumph, deleted a post featuring actress Sanjana Sanghi and her domestic workers. The page faced a severe backlash against Sanjana’s post where she explained how she helped her domestic staff during the pandemic and also vaccinated them. She also explained how very helpful her staff had been to her during the pandemic, and now she is returning the favor. This piece with Sanjana would have been a promoted collaboration with a beer brand.

Just hours after the HOB post posted on their social media platforms, Diet Sabya called out the post, pointing out how HOB and Sanjana ended up using their three housemaids as props to enhance their own image. Diet Sabya is a sharp-tongued anonymous Instagram account dedicated to exposing imitations or appropriations, even blatant copies, in fashion.

As Diet Sabya posted the story of Sanjana’s post, many Instagram users began to respond and called for the HOB post to be removed as she appeared to be using Sanjana’s domestic staff to gain praise for her.

Diet Sabya, while calling the actor on his Instagram Stories, wrote: “” Help “suggests they are doing charity / pro bono work out of the goodness of their hearts.” Workers “suggest they get paid for their service … They deserve all the rights any employee would get.

Here’s how people reacted to Diet Sabya’s post:

Many also responded by saying, “This message reeked of privilege and self-importance throughout.” Some also felt that Sanjana’s domestic workers saw nothing of their faces on the internet, while Sanjana received more praise and apparently was paid for telling the story as well.

After the backlash the Humans of Bombay received in presenting the Sanjana Sanghi story, the platform has now deleted the story. An official statement from the actor is expected.

On the job front, Sanjana was last seen sharing screen space with the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput in Mukesh Chhabra’s 2020 film Dil Bechara. His next film is Om: The Battle Within by Kapil Verma, also starring Aditya Roy Kapur.
