Bigg Boss 14 Week 3 Highlight: Seniors bid adieu, Jaan backstabs Nikki, Pavitra-Eijaz get into brawl
By Anshul Vipat
The third week was a little different for Rubina Dilaik as she didn't had enough clothes to wear during the Weekend episode. Rubina got very upset and she refused to be part of the weekend episode. Even before Salman Khan entered, the contestants were given a task where Nikki and Rubina were made to stand against each other and other contestants had to tell who has more trash in their head. Rubina got offended and refused to participate in the task and questioned Bigg Boss for giving a task of this nature. (All Pictures: mid-day archives/Instagram and Twitter handle of Colors TV).
Other contestants in the house tried to make her understand that it was just a task and she should do it in a good spirit but Rubina refused to bow down. "Main iss prakriya ka part nahi hoon. I am not a bin of garbage. Ab hamare ghar ke mukhya bol rahe hai ki tumhaare dimaag mein kachra hai. Mujhe uss cheez se problem hai. (I am not a part of this task. I am not a bin of garbage. Now the head of the house is saying that you have garbage in your brain. I have a problem with that)," she said.
When Salman Khan had his weekly meet with the contestants; he took the issue with Rubina. He gave an earful to Rubina for questioning Bigg Boss and challenging its choice of tasks. Rubina expressed her concerns to Salman, however, Salman tried to explain to her that it's a game and she should adjust to all the tasks and challenges thrown at her in the game.
Rubina argued back and Salman eventually lost his calm and asked her to decide if she wants to be in this game or not. "Rubina aapka point unacceptable hai. Bigg Boss ke rules se aapko aapatti hai. (Rubina, your point is unacceptable. You have problems with Bigg Boss rules)," Salman said, and asked her what is she doing on the show when she doesn't want to participate in the task. Rubina told Salman that she didn't know she would be reprimanded for her point of view to which Salman replied that he is talking with respect. "Yeh galat hai aur yehi aapko bhaari padne wala hai. (You are wrong, and it will work against you)," he said.
Later each contestant was put in the kathgara and the fellow contestants had to ask them for justification. When Eijaz entered the kathgara, Jasmin accused him of being intimidating while doing the task and crossing the line. Eijaz justified his act by saying that was his psychological tactic to win the task.
Later Salman introduced a twist in the episode, where he announced that the freshers had to decide amongst themselves and name one contestant who didn't deserved to be in Bigg Boss house. The freshers ended up with 4 votes each, making Sidharth Shukla responsible for taking the toughest decision of the week. Having won Sidharth's vote, Shehzad Deol become the 'Gayab' contestant of the house. Adding to that, Nikki and Shehzad were loggerheads with each other, and Nikki made it very clear that she think that Shehzad deserves to be out of the show soon.
Tuesday brought another shock for the contestants and Toofani seniors when Bigg Boss announced the 'Game over' task. The freshers have already been split into three teams led by three Toofani Seniors - Sidharth Shukla, Hina Khan, and Gauahar Khan. Sidharth's team consisted of Nikki Tamboli, Pavitra Punia, and Eijaz Khan. Hina has Rubina Dilaik, Abhinav Shukla, Nishant Singh Malkhani, and Jasmin Bhasin with her and Gauahar's team comprised of Jaan Kumar and Rahul Vaidya.
A buzzer was allotted to each team and they were instructed to protect it from the competing team member. Apart from the juniors, even the seniors had created a 'secret alliance' between them. At the start of the game, Hina and Gauahar's teams made an alliance against Sidharth. They agreed to not hit each other's buzzers and decided to attack Sidharth. Sidharth's team, on the other hand, decided to attack Gauahar's team buzzer as she only had two people.
Needless to say, the task got off to a rocky start. Gauahar cried foul and claimed that Sidharth's team broke the rules because more than two people were present inside the square. Sidharth refused to believe it and declared that his team has won the task. Hina entered into the 'battle scene' and the trio had an extremely heated argument.
Noticing the commotion, Bigg Boss called all the seniors in the theatre room to watch a close replay of the entire task and the disputed incident. Even in the theatre room, the trio had a heated debate. Bigg Boss had no other option but to end the fighting by taking the matter into its own hands.
Bigg Boss opened another portion of the house called Red Zone and declared Sidharth Shukla's team disqualified. The contestants of the Red Zone will always remain in nomination. Because Nikki Tamboli was already a confirmed contestant, Pavitra Punia, Eijaz Khan was ordered to stay in the red zone and Sidharth Shukla was asked to leave the house.
Bigg Boss also announced that Shehzad Deol has been eliminated from the house. He became the second contestant to be evicted after Sara Gurpal. He was termed as the 'Gayab' contestant and disallowed from participating in any tasks. The contestants had also noticed the fact that while Shehzad would take a stance, he would often go back on his words and give in. Alas, it takes a much stronger and fiery attitude to sustain inside the Bigg Boss House.
Seniors Gauahar Khan and Hina Khan also left the house after giving a final goodbye to Bigg Boss 14 contestants and BB house.
All the contestants were left teary-eyed and the seniors gave their piece of advance and mantras to win the show. The seniors surely did leave a lasting impression on the freshers. It will be interesting for the audiences to see the contestants now play solo and take ahead the strategy and friendships.
To add to their miseries, another surprise is thrown at their way as an emergency team wearing PPE kits enter the house and start tearing up a part of the living area exposing a new side.
Friday brought in good news for Nishant Singh Malkhani became the first captain of the season. Bigg Boss congratulated him on his victory and assigned him some responsibilities that read, 'he will have to make sure that all the contestants must follow all the rules, everyone must complete their duties.' Also, he got access to use the special bedroom and BB Mall.
Meanwhile, Nikki Tambli broke the rule and entered into the Red Zone to meet Pavitra and Eijaz and refused to go out of that despite the captain insisting. Rubina comes to Nishant and asks her to threaten Nikki Tamboli with her personal stuff. She asked Nishant to tell Nikki that he will lock all her essentials, clothes, and other personal items inside the BB Mall if she would not come out. Nishant seems to follow Rubina's advice.
Saturday saw a special (and much-needed) surprise for the housemates - 'Garba Night'. Keeping the negativity aside, the contestants enthusiastically dressed up and prepared for the big surprise that lied ahead. The famous sister duo Preeti and Pinky entered the house to entertain and celebrate Navratri with the contestants. Keeping the festive spirits high, Preeti, Pinky and the contestants swayed to some all-time classic dandiya songs.
Jaan and Nikki let loose and shared a sweet moment, adding some spice to their already growing bond. Bigg Boss also challenged Nikki and Rubina to the Most Radiant Face Dandiya Challenge. The duo had to look their best and they opted for the facial to add the salon touch to their look. While Jaan pampered Nikki to get the look for the night, Abhinav left no stone unturned to make sure her wife looked the best.
Now let's talk about some heated arguments inside the house. First, we talk about Pavitra Punia and Eijaz Khan, who just a week ago were spotted enjoying some friendly moments, which has now developed somewhat of a love-hate relationship in the house. This happened after Eijaz approached Pavitra and confronted her about nominations. "Mujhe nominate karogi, mere bhi emotions hain (If you nominate me, I’ll be upset)," to which Pavitra reopens old wound, and recalls a recent incident when she made advances on him. "Saamne aayi thi, emotions ke saath aayi thi, tumne khilvaad kiya tha (When I came to you, it was with real emotions, you played around with them)", she said.
The verbal clash escalated on a different note, with both the contestants screaming at the top of their voices at each other. Eijaz called Pavitra's friendship with him "fake," and also said that had he meant something to him, she wouldn't have nominated him in the first week. Certainly, anything can happen inside the Bigg Boss house. A friend turns foe in a day.
Nikki Tamboli's friends Nishant Singh Malkhani and Jaan Sanu ditched her at the last moment. She tried to convince Jaan and Nishant who she believes to be her friends, to vote in her favour. But the duo seems to be thinking otherwise, while Jaan is heard saying "She is a friend, but I am not an Idiot".
On the other hand, Nishant feared that Nikki will turn out to be a dictator of the house if she gets the reigns. Rahul is the only one who is in support of Nikki but gets sceptical after Jaan and Nishant paint his mind.
A raging fight broke out as Rahul told the housemates about Pavitra’s crush on Abhinav who is a married man is. Pavitra blamed Rahul for tarnishing her character with his baseless claim. Heartbroken and enraged, Pavitra had a loud and fuming fight with Rahul and she accused him of having low standards.
Pavitra broke down into tears as Rubina, Abhinav, and the other house members tried to pacify her. On the other hand, Nishant tried to convince Rahul to apologize to Pavitra and pour some water over the burning fire. But a strong-headed Rahul, refused to apologize and maintained his stand. He believed he is in the right and no one can convince him otherwise.
On Saturday, during the regular Salman Khan grilling session in the Weekend Ka Vaar episode saw some big revelation by the host. While Nikki had begun to trust him as a friend, she gets to hear that Jaan had been plotting against her and Rahul during the captaincy task. Hurt of being backstabbed by Jaan, Nikki unfurls in anger and locks herself in the bathroom, while Jaan runs after her trying to pacify and apologize for his actions.
A sizzling performance by Kavita Kaushik and Naina Singh, hints of a new twist in store. Are they going to be the next wild-card entries in the house. Well, we just have to wait and watch.
So will Jaan and Nikki's friendship brave the troubling waters? We will see more of Eijaz-Pavitra's fight and Rubina Dilaik's tantrums? Only time will tell whether they will be successful in winning each other's trust or not. Amidst all the drama, the contestants are battling in the house to stop from getting eliminated.
