Bigg Boss 14 Day 103 Written Update: Salman Khan, Harrdy Sandhu, Sargun Mehta Spread Lohri Cheer

Salman Khan hosted Harrdy Sandhu and Sargun Mehta as they conducted a controversial yet entertaining task in Bigg Boss 14.

The Weekend Ka Vaar episodes are always an exciting time in Bigg Boss where host Salman Khan introduces a slew of entertaining tasks for housemates. There are also some really amazing guests who grace the show and up the fun levels in the episode!

This time, the Weekend Ka Vaar starts with Salman Khan giving a chance to the contestants to name one weakness of theirs because of which others have taken their advantage. Arshi is the first on who says that because of her trustworthy nature, Eijaz has taken an advantage and not respected her enough. Eijaz, on his part, says that he over-shares his emotions with people and blames Nikki for taking advantage of that. Aly says that Rakhi and Nikki have taken an advantage of him playing the game on backfoot. He promises that from now on, he will play more aggressively. Rubina says that Eijaz, Rahul and Sonali have taken undue advantage od her caring nature! Abhinav, on the other hand, says that his quiet attitude has had several housemates take his advantage and that now he will start on a new note!

Harrdy Sandhu and Sargun Mehta are next to enter with a controversial yet entertaining task. The housemates have to name their fellow contestants who have done ‘fareb’ or cheating with them! They have to feed a chilly laddo to the erring members. Nikki names Rahul as her ‘Farebi’, and Rahul in return feeds the Mirchi Ka Laddo to Nikki. Sonali and Arshi choose to feed the laddo to Rubina, who is almost overwhelmed with an overdose of the spicy snack!

It’s now time for celebration and host Salman Khan plays some of the choicest numbers for the housemates to dance on! Rakhi sets the stage on fire as she does a high-energy dance number. Even Salman Khan cannot stop himself from dancing and breaks into a whistle which only excites the housemates. Aly and Sonali, next dance to Salman’s own hit song, Dhadke Dil Baar Baar! This time, too, Salman breaks into his signature step and the housemates all try to imitate the same!

With a combination of dance, drama and entertainment, Sunday’s Weekend Ka Vaar ended on a lighter note. with festive spree rising high!

Bigg Boss 14: Who Will Get Evicted from the House This Week

In this week, four contestants have been nominated for eviction from the ‘Bigg Boss 14′ house. They are Nikki Tamboli, Rubina Dilaik, Rahul Vaidya and Sonali Phogat.

In this week, four contestants have been nominated for eviction from the Bigg Boss 14 house. They are Nikki Tamboli, Rubina Dilaik, Rahul Vaidya and wild card Sonali Phogat.

On last week’s Weekend Ka Vaar, for the first time, nomination process was done in the presence of the show’s host superstar Salman Khan. The contestants in pairs were asked to save one and nominate the other in the process.

Now, from the nominated contestants, the chances of Rubina getting evicted is less compared to the other contestants. She is a popular TV face and viewers like to watch the actress’s married life on TV.

On the other hand, Rahul, who had taken voluntary exit from the show and was brought back in the game, will also not be evicted from the Bigg Boss house in this week. He is one of the most liked contestants of the season.

Talking about Nikki, who had started her Bigg Boss journey with a bang, was also evicted on the mid-season finale day. However, she also re-entered the show. Nikki was known for her antics and activeness during the tasks, but, now the viewers are complaining that she has become boring to watch in the Bigg Boss house.

Richa Chadha’s Madam Chief Minister receives flak for misrepresentation of Dalit community in poster

Social media users tweeted at Richa Chadha for the stereotypical image in the first look poster of Madam Chief Minister and to take into account the criticism directed towards the film from the Dalit community.

Richa Chadha recently unveiled the first look poster of her upcoming political drama Madam Chief Minister. In the poster, she can be seen holding a broom, covered in muck. The tagline reads, “Untouchable, unstoppable.”

The image has received significant backlash for being tone deaf, misrepresenting the Dalit community, and for not casting a Dalit actor in the lead role.

Social media users tweeted at the actor for choosing to play the role and to take into account the criticism directed towards the film from the Dalit community.

Believed to be based on Mayawati, who has served four terms as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, the film is written and directed by Subhash Kapoor. Kapoor has previously helmed satirical comedies like Phas Gaye Re Obama, Jolly LLB and Jolly LLB 2.

Bhushan Kumar has produced Madam Chief Minister, which also stars Saurabh Shukla, Manav Kaul, Akshay Oberoi and Shubhrajyoti, via Series.

Bigg Boss 14: Who Will Get Evicted from the House This Week?

In this week, contestants Aly Goni, Abhinav Shukla, Rubina Dilaik and Jasmin Bhasin are nominated by Bigg Boss for discussing nominations in advance.

Bigg Boss nominated contestants Aly Goni, Abhinav Shukla, Rubina Dilaik and Jasmin Bhasin for discussing nominations in advance. Post that, he even cancelled the nomination process to teach the four contestants a lesson for breaking house rules.

If either of Rubina and Abhinav gets evicted from the Bigg Boss 14 house, it will break the other’s heart, and same goes to Aly and Jasmin. While Rubina and Abhinav are married, Jasmin and Aly are rumoured couple. Also, they have been playing really well in the game.

However, if one has to leave the house in this week, the chances of Rubina getting evicted is less compared to other three contestants.

While Aly was a wild card contestant and was eliminated a few days before the mid-season finale, re-entered the house after challengers. Jasmin and Abhinav have been on the game since day one.

Given the entertainment quotient, Aly and Jasmin are better than Abhinav. Also, the viewers are more familiar with Aly and Jasmin than Abhinav.

It is difficult to pick one from Aly, Jasmin and Abhinav, but, the majority of the housemates think it will be Abhinav. However, the rumours say otherwise.

Bigg Boss 14: Telly Bahus Rubina Dilaik and Jasmin Bhasin Turn Reality Vamps

Rubina Dilaik and Jasmin Bhasin’s reality television gameplan has been very different from the scripted reality that fiction television lets them play out as telly bahus.

Actors Rubina Dilaik and Jasmin Bhasin are undoubtedly among the biggest bahus in the Indian small screen scene, but ever since they entered the Bigg Boss 14 house, they have been cutting a portrait of the classic vamp.

With over 100 cameras spread across the house to maintain 24 hours vigilance on the housemates, Rubina and Jasmin’s reality television gameplan has been very different from the scripted reality that fiction television lets them play out as telly bahus.

The ploy has allowed both Rubina and Jasmin fend against the more played-to-gallery tactics of challengers such as Rakhi Sawant, Arshi Khan, Kashmira Shah, Vikas Gupta and Manu Punjabi, who have subsequently walked into the show.

Crowned as the “crybaby” of Bigg Boss 14, Jasmin’s attitude has only gone from bad to worse in the recent episodes, especially when she targets Rakhi.

Jasmin, who garnered a sizeable fan base during her starring stint on the show Naagin, made plenty of grotesque comments on Rakhi’s body, face, implants and hygiene.

Notable among these was Jasmin’s quip on Rakhi’s nose implant: “Naak gir jaayegi (Your nose will fall apart).” She also made a few comments on Rakhi’s silicone implants that were beeped by the channel.

Rubina, on the other hand, has moved from her staid “Shikshika” (schoolteacher) mode to a silently operating schemer of sorts. She has chosen to pick on Arshi ever since the latter’s entry.

Rubina was a part of shows such as Chotti Bahu and Shakti: Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, and has essayed exemplary Indian values with her roles in these shows. On Bigg Boss 14, however, she has been busy name-calling Arshi.

She has often been seen using words such as “gandi aurat” (dirty woman) for Arshi, besides expressions as “you are a joke”.

Rubina was also seen laughing when Jasmin was insulting Rakhi in a recent episode of Bigg Boss 14.

There is a saying that “real women fix each other’s crowns” but on Bigg Boss 14, it is the other way round. The women here seem to be pulling each other down.

Bigg Boss 14, Day 89 Written Update: Sunny Leone Questions Rubina Diliak and Rahul Vaidya’s Friendship

In the upcoming episode of Bigg Boss 14, actress and season 4 contestant Sunny Leone will enter as a guest to address the current relationship statuses between the housemates.

Bigg Boss has always introduced a whole lot of fun guests in the house to keep things happening and exciting. This time, the Bigg Boss house will see the return of Season 5 contestant Sunny Leone.

Bigg Boss rings a siren and we see Sunny enter the Bigg Boss house to the tunes of Laila main laila. She introduces herself as ‘Dr. Sunny Leone’ who is in the house to address the current relationship statuses between the housemates.

First up is Eijaz Khan who admits that he misses Pavitra Punia dearly. He even leaves a loving message for her. Next are Jasmin Bhasin and Aly Goni. The two share a very moving and loving moment and its clear that Bigg Boss 14 has gotten the two even closer. Arshi Khan, when questioned by Sunny about her game plan, says that Rubina Dilaik is her main rival and she will make sure Rubina cannot affect her. Rahul Vaidya and Rubina are the next in Dr. Sunny’s clinic and the two try and clear out misconceptions against each other. Nikki, who is next, tears Aly’s picture who she had earlier confessed to liking.

Rakhi Sawant, Raps Jasmin Bhasin and Nikki Tamboli for Making Fun of Her Cosmetic Surgeries

During the recent ‘Weekend Ka Vaar’ episode of ‘Bigg Boss 14′, Salman Khan stood up for Rakhi Sawant who he said is being bullied by housemates.

During the recent Weekend Ka Vaar episode on Bigg Boss 14, show host Salman Khan came down heavily on contestants for bullying and targeting Rakhi Sawant and Arshi Khan. Both Rakhi and Arshi have entered the house as challengers and have been cornered by the participants for various reasons over the weeks.

Recently, Jasmin Bhasin had covered Rakhi’s face with a duck mask which led to her getting hurt. But Jasmin did not apologise to Rakhi and instead made fun of her by calling her drama queen. She claimed that Rakhi is faking her injury. Clearing the air on the incident, Salman clarified to Jasmin that Rakhi indeed was hurt and despite Bigg Boss repeatedly asking inmates to be careful, Jasmin failed to acknowledge that she was at fault. Salman criticises Jasmin and others for targeting Rakhi for her ‘different’ personality. He adds Rakhi is the way she is and people love her. He also said that fans have voted in large numbers for Rakhi and declared her safe from eviction this week.

Meanwhile, Salman did not spare Nikki Tamboli. He said that she and Jasmin keep making fun of Rakhi’s cosmetic surgeries. He also says that putting someone down is uncool in his eyes. Salman also scolds Abhinav, Aly, Eijaz and others for not taking a stand. Abhinav says that he will keep that in mind going forward.

In a new promo, Jasmin is seen taunting Rakhi over her nose, saying “it (her nose) will fall down.” Is Jasmin right in making personal comments over Rakhi’s personality, choices and her body?

Bigg Boss 14: Jaan Kumar Sanu Says He Doesn’t Think Nikki Tamboli’s Feelings For Aly Goni are Real

In the latest episode of Bigg Boss 14, Nikki Tamboli professed her feelings for Aly Goni while talking to Rakhi Sawant. Now, evicted contestant Jaan Kumar Sanu has weighed in on the issue.

The latest episode on Bigg Boss 14 shows Nikki Tamboli opening up about her feelings for Aly Goni while talking to Rakhi Sawant. Meanwhile, rumoured couple Aly and Jasmin Bhasin are currently locked up together and are often professing their feelings for each other.

While talking to Rakhi, Nikki said she doesn’t plan to tell Aly anything. However, she said, if he ever asked her about her feelings, her answer would be honest. Rakhi, who feels a love triangle is happening in the Bigg Boss house, later learns that Aly and Jasmin are only best friends. As Nikki reveals that Aly and Jasmin are not in a relationship, Rakhi proposes that she can go and tell Aly about her feelings.

Now, Jaan Kumar Sanu has reacted to Nikki’s confession. The singer had obvious feelings for Nikki, was vocal about it and tried to confess to her many times on the show. The singer, who was evicted from the show a few weeks ago, has said that Nikki has got a gamer’s mind. While speaking to SpotboyE in an interview, Jaan said that he honestly has no idea when it is about Nikki. He doesn’t know and is not sure if her liking towards Aly is real and genuine.

He added that he is not inside the house and is confused like the viewers. He only has access to the footage available on television. Jaan went on to say that he thought that Nikki was smitten by Aly since the first day. He mentioned that it will also be good for the game if she likes him.

Meanwhile, on Thursday night’s episode, Aly was heard telling Jasmin, “We won’t get into that boyfriend-girlfriend game. Either we will do something big, or just stay the way we are.” The two are figuring out their bond and have been seen discussing possibilities of them proposing to one another.

I love to keep doing different genres': Arshad Warsi on being offered a range of roles on streaming platforms

Arshad Warsi, most recently seen with Bhumi Pednekar in Durgamati, is slowly and steadily broadening the range of characters he is playing onscreen, thanks to streaming platforms

Arshad Warsi is not a big fan of horror genre but he agreed on Durgamati not just for its interesting and unpredictable script but because “the film didn’t have all those elements that I don’t like in horror. I don’t like ugly faces, blood, gore, somebody’s head blown off…The whole atmosphere, the house, the eeriness of spirit, I liked all that. I look for a good role and a good film, a film that I would like to see.”

“And then I got a serious role to play for a change,” adds Warsi. “Playing a politician, playing somebody way more mature than I am was great fun. My character Ishwar Prasad is pretty much like the original (Telugu film Bhaagamathie) but my body language and style of dialogue delivery is different.

Being someone who believes horror as a genre is difficult for an actor to perform, Warsi is all praises for Bhumi Pednekar. “I feel bad for Bhumi. That poor girl has gone through hell. She was dragged, pushed, thrown here and there. She went through a lot of torture. Fortunately I didn’t have to do all that. Bhumi is very hard-working, she puts her heart and soul into her work. She just doesn’t give up, she wants to give her best. I was quite impressed with her. I have also seen the original and I know how difficult it must have been to be part of it.”

Warsi may be more popular for his comedic turns in Munna Bhai, Golmaal and Dhamaal but he has been appreciated for his distinct characters in films like Hogi Pyaar Ki Jeet, Ishiqiya, and Jolly LLB. He even garnered critical acclaim for playing a police officer (SSP Ajay Kumar) in the crime drama Sehar (2005). The actor says stereotyping is not a problem but definitely a cycle he wants to break out of. “I have to keep doing different genres otherwise it is like being fed the same food everyday of your life. You will get fed up with it no matter how much you like it. I love doing comedies but at the same time I want to mix it with a couple of serious films here and there. I need movies like Durgamati, Jolly LLB, Sehar, and Ishqiya to keep me going. These movies don’t come to me very often.”

The versatile actor is slowly and steadily broadening the range of characters he is playing, thanks to streaming platforms. Warsi calls the OTT sphere a boon that has provided him with an opportunity to play more “serious” roles. Quite recently, he made his digital debut with Asur, a Voot Select crime thriller, in which he played Dhananjay Rajput, a forensic expert.

In cinema I am mostly getting comedy parts. I have been waiting for so many years and OTT has offered me various serious roles and I am doing most of them. Actors who haven’t got their chance to prove themselves in cinema have got a chance in OTT. I have been appreciated in Asur and I am going to start shooting for Asur 2 as soon as I finish Bachchan Pandey (Sajid Nadiadwala production’s film co-starring Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon and Jacqueline Fernandez). I will wrap Bachchan Pandey, which is completely nuts, mad comedy and then I will go to a very serious dramatic set for Asur,” says Warsi. “It is going to be great fun for people to watch Akshay and I together. We are completely insane, two mad people who enjoy doing comedy. The film is going to be bizarre and I love Akshay’s character in the film. We plan to start the shoot January next and will wrap up in March.”

Warsi has been busy with a lot of narrations during the lockdown but the story he is eagerly awaiting to hear is of Golmaal’s fifth instalment. “But I know that suddenly I will get a call from Rohit Shetty, he will summon me saying, ‘Come, we are listening to the script’. Sooner or later it will happen,” divulges Warsi, adding that the chances of Munna Bhai 3 happening appear bleak. “I don’t think Munna Bhai 3 will happen. I really doubt it. This is the strangest thing to happen. You have a producer and director who want to make the film, we have almost three scripts ready, we have actors who are all set. There are people waiting to watch it but still there is no film.”

Meanwhile, he isn’t complaining being holed up indoors with his family. “I have been enjoying myself. I am chilling, relaxing, hanging out with kids, and my dogs. My wife Maria (Goretti) has been cooking some great food and we are all putting on weight. I love being on the sets and I love being at home as well. I can’t say that I am missing work. I love going on bike rides, hanging out in mountainous regions and greener places. I live my life like that. I like not to work too much. With pandemic happening looks like we have started valuing life.
