If there could be any word to describe reality show Bigg Boss, apart from ‘melodramatic’, it has got to be ‘scandalous’! In fact, the very skeleton of the show is based on scandals, isn’t it? That’s why the show runs, that’s how it gets its TRPs, and that’s how more people want to watch it! Otherwise there’s no sense in normal people watching a bunch of pseudo celebrities locked up in one house for months, fighting about petty things with each other.
And while I can count all the scandalous moments in the past 8 seasons of Bigg Boss, there are some that were simply epic, that have been etched in my memory. Not because they were memorable, but simply because they were scandalous enough and my brain refuses to let go of them!
