Fans of Lopamudra Raut, Manoj Punjabi, Manveer Gujjar and Bani J can get up and do their happy dance. Your favourites are not going anywhere this week. But there is a Roadies-like twist in this tale. Salman Khan introduces everyone to a little something called ‘The Immunity Medallion’ which will give one contestant the power to escape two nominations of their choice. Clearly, Bigg Boss has leveled up.
On Day 21, entertainment arrived in the form of the Rock On 2 cast. The last time we caught up with them, Shraddha Kapoor and Farhan Akhtar were inside the house and playing a game with the contestants. This time, their band members will join them on stage, along with Bhai himself. The icing on the cake is that they’ll perform their new song, You Know What I Mean. It might well boost the TRPs of this mostly dull installment of the show.
It seems like even Salman is not entertained this year. The task that he introduces is another slimy one. ‘Keechad Task’ comes to haunt the housemates as they play ‘Sach Ka Samna’ with the stinky keechad brought specially for them. Rohan–Manveer and Manu–Karan face a volley of questions and their fellow contestants voteon whether their responses are acceptable or not. If you don’t like them, it’ll be fun to watch them fall flat on their face in a pit of sludge.
But who do you think will be evicted today? The nation wants to know.
No, it doesn’t. Really.
