Model-turned-actor Upen Patel was so far seen as an introvert person inside the ‘Bigg Boss 8’ house (barring his interaction with ‘behen’ Soni). Turns out, the handsome hunk is slowly but loudly coming out of his shell. Last night’s episode saw Upen get into a verbal argument with none other than Gautam Gulati.
The level of aggression was such that all the other inmates sitting in the garden had to intervene between the two fighting boys. Upen, who was often advised by host Salman Khan to speak more and become for involved in the house, seems to have taken it too seriously.
In a telephone booth task, while Sushant Divgikar was on the phone, Upen and other boys were asked if they could get their heads shaved, to which everyone said no. However, when Gautam was asked, he casually said, ‘I am not a friend, whoever is best friends with Sushant should do it’.
Upen being close buds with Sushi (as he is fondly addressed), took the side remark personally, and confronted Gautam. The regular conversation went on to become a one-on-one fight, where Arya, Praneet, Pritam and Karishma Tanna had to intervene to pacify the boys.
