Bigg Boss 9 has had its share of special celeb guests so far, but taking the cake away this Sunday was last season’s winner and laakhon dilon ki dhadkan, Gautam Gulati. The episode started with the hunk entering the house while Bigg Boss announced the now-a-regular Freeze task, in which the contestants were in statue mode as Gautam entered announcing his trademark “Welcome to Gautham City” dialogue. While the former winner had words of appreciation for the eye candies of the show — Rochelle, Mandana and Rimi — some advice was reserved for Prince. The best compliments were however reserved for Aman Verma, with Gautam clearly stating that the former has all the qualities of a winner.
After Gautam’s antics, it was time for a panel discussion, with Season 7 contestant Kamya Panjabi and Senior Editor Karma Paljor from a popular news channel, also partaking in the discussion. Just like Saturday, the Kishwer-Suyyash-Prince bashing continued, with Kamya (who happens to be friends with Suyyash and Kishwer) openly stating her displeasure about Kishwer’s “anpadh, gawaar, jaahil” comment. Kishwer looked visibly upset as good friend Kamya said that the biggest example of “anpadh” and “jaahil” was Kishwer herself. It clearly was Aman’s day as the actor won praise not only from Gautam but even from host Salman and Kamya as well. Post the discussion, when Gautam was asked about his guess on this season’s winner, he spoke highly about Mandana, Rochelle and Aman’s chances. It was an emotional moment for Aman as Salman said that the former was working towards clearing his name and making his parents proud after the infamous sting operation he was caught in.
Adding some oomph to the episode were actors Daisy Shah and Zarine Khan, who came along with Sharman Joshi and Karan Singh Grover, to promote Hate Story 3. A task was played in which each contestant had to narrate his/her hate story in the house. Mandana emerged as a favourite as Rochelle and Rishabh both spoke about her.
The most interesting part of the episode was the Sach Ki Kursi task, in which the contestants sat on a lie detector kursi while tackling some tricky questions from Salman. The first to grace the chair was Aman, with the actor confessing that he felt that Kishwer was the man in her relationship with Suyyash. Next in line was Rochelle, who confessed missing her friendship with Prince. She even admitted that she felt unsafe in the house because of Prince and Suyyash. When Rishabh was asked whether he felt Rochelle was two-faced, he denied it but the lie detector stated otherwise. Rishabh also confessed that he’d started liking Digangna. Rochelle, Mandana and Aman were also shown discussing the sparks flying between Diggy and Rishabh.
Getting eliminated this week was Puneet, who said he was relieved on getting evicted as the changing personalities left him confused inside the house.
