Ali Quli Mirza hasn’t ever been a popular contestant in the house. He was brought into the house as captain and managed to rub everyone the wrong way. Well, looks like his ‘rubbing’ knows no boundaries!
Last night’s episode saw Sonali Raut‘s shift of interest. The babe had been pursuing Gautam Gulati for a while now and when he was seen not reciprocating, she seems to have shifted loyalties to Upen Patel. Sonali was cozying up with Upen under a blanket. What’s up with that? I mean… isn’t it awkward that your parents are likely to be watching this? Anyway, to each their own. During their cozying up session, an uninvited Ali apparently slipped his hand under the same blanket and touched Sonali in a strange way. Wow! I did not see that coming!
Sonali immediately called him out for it and told him off saying that they aren’t close enough for him to be touching her like this. On his part, he apologised profusely and swore on Allah that he just touched her knee. Sonali did not agree, though! As expected, the whole house has gotten together in support of Sonali and unsurprisingly this is another “aurat ki izzat” issue on the show.
Now it seems to me that Ali thought he could get away with it because Sonali is generally pally with the male contestants of the house. I’d be really disappointed if he thought she was “asking for it.”
But if that is not true and if Ali genuinely just touched her knee, I wonder if this is Sonali’s way playing the woman card and being more visible on the show. I sure hope not! Meanwhile, Sonali’s new interest Upen has been the most silent on this issue. Yes Upen, not standing up for the woman you’re sharing your blanket with IS the way to go. Slow claps!
Tonight’s episode will see everyone from Arya Babbar to Pritam to Diandra strongly condemning Ali’s act and rightly so.
