Bigg Boss Season 8 ended on a low-rating note, and the makers are leaving no stone unturned with Bigg Boss Halla Bol, the extended stint of the show. Buzz coming in suggests that the five ‘challengers’, sent into the house to boost the current season’s sagging ratings, have each been assigned ‘a role to play out’ by the channel.
Sambhavna Seth and Mahek Chahal’s primary job will reportedly be to irk the two female ‘champions’-Dimpy Mahajan and Karishma Tanna. That bit would appear true going by the literally hard-hitting note on which Halla Bol kicked off.
During Monday’s episode, Sambhavna virtually sounded off the battle cry by hurling a shoe at Dimpy-the antic being in sync with the show’s overall low-brow character.
It all started when challengers Dimpy and Sambhavna were chatting up champions Pritam Singh and Gautam Gulati.
Sambhavna, perhaps looking for the right cue, kicked off and argument with Dimpy who, as if to further instigate her during the argument, waved a hand at Sambhavna and also blew kisses at her. The verbal spat went on till Sambhavna took off one of her shoes and hurled it at Dimpy.
Dimpy then went to the bathroom where she broke down even as Mahek stepped in to placate her. Later, Dimpy’s estranged husband Rahul, also a challenger, told her that she should have also thrown a show at Sambhavna.
It is said the Dimpy-Sambhavna fracas will be allowed to snowball for a while in a bid to increase the show’s ratings. Meanwhile, challenger Ajaz Khan, we hear, will try to provoke champions Ali Quli Mirza and Pritam.
Challenger Mahek’s ‘job’ also includes flirting with champion Gautam Gulati to unsettle the normally cool Karishma. Rahul Mahajan, on the other hand, will reportedly try cosying up to his estranged wife to grab the eyeballs.
