- Shalin Bhanot, a contestant, was given a new task by judge Salman Khan. Shalin was supposed to press the buzzer to keep Tina Datta and Sumbul Touqeer from being ejected.
Salman Khan, the Bigg Boss 16 host, assigned a new task to contestant Shalin Bhanot. Shalin was supposed to press the buzzer to prevent Tina Datta and Sumbul Touqeer from being evicted.
Salman added a twist to the task, stating that this would be possible only after a 25 lakh deduction from the cash prize.
Along with Tina as well as Sumbul, Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia and MC Stan have been nominated for eviction this week. Fans reacted to the weekend’s episode promo video.
A preview for the upcoming episode showed Shalin struggling to decide whether to save his friends at the expense of having the winner’s prize money reduced by $25 lakh.
“Shalin phassa hai gambhir sthiti mein,” read the caption when Colors TV posted the promo on their social media account. How much is the 25 lakh ki bali in Tina and Sumbul’s bachaane ke liye? (Shalin is in a challenging circumstance. Will he risk spending $25,000 to save Tina and Sumbul?)
Shalin Bhanot received a task from Salman Khan at the start of the promo. Salman said, “If you want to prevent Tina and Sumbul from being out from the house, then you have to click the buzzer but pachees lakh nikaal diye jaayenge (If you want to prevent Tina and Sumbul from being evicted from the house, then you have to push the buzzer but 25 lakh would be deducted)” He then started the countdown: 1, 2, 3. Shalin responded right away, “Sir, ek second (Sir, one second).” As the clip ended, Salman said, “Ab dekhte hai ki kon iss ghar se beghar hoti hai (Let’s see who will leave the house)”. “Nhi nhi” (No, no), said Shalin.
One person responded to the promo video by asking, “Why Shalin, who picks from them..what is this disgusting story. I detest Tina and Shalin. “Sumbul ko nikaalo (Please evict Sumbul), can’t tolerate her,” another person wrote.
Another person remarked, “Bigg boss, please send both of them out of this house,” in Hindi. Why is Sumbul ranked second to last? Do you think the viewers are idiots? Another person added, “Your daughter Nimrit should have received the votes.
