British singer-actress Sofia Hayat, who has filed an FIR against "Bigg Boss Saath-7" contestant Armaan Kohli for hitting her on the show, now plans to also sue Colors channel which airs the reality show.
At a press conference here, Sofia was asked if she thinks that the channel is wrong in not taking any action against Armaan despite having a "no violence" clause in the contract.
To that, Sofia said: "I didn't think practically that I should sue Colors also, I could see only Armaan Kohli. But yes, you are right, I will talk to my legal team also about this."
Sofia said after leaving the house, her only focus was to take action against Armaan and wants him to be taken out of the house. She filed a complaint at the Santa Cruz police station here Wednesday.
"My contract said 'no violence and no personal attacks'. I didn't think of this (suing the channel) before, but my next step will be this. Obviously, my number one priority is that Armaan is taken out of the house and he needs to be accounted for what he has done," she added.
Sofia was evicted from "Bigg Boss Saath-7" last week. During her stay on the show, an argument broke out between her and Armaan which ended with Armaan hitting Sofia with a mop, leaving her hurt.
This part was not aired on television and host Salman Khan also reprimanded Armaan for his action.
Armaan has been in the spotlight for his temper on more occasions than one and he has been seen picking up fights with other inmates as well.
"Bigg Boss" requires celebrity contestants to stay locked inside an isolated house with several cameras recording the inmates' actions every second.
