During the latest episode of Bigg Boss 17, a heated discussion unfolded on Day 35 during the much-awaited Weekend Ka Vaar. Contestants Arun Mashettey and Sunny Aryaa accused the show of bias, alleging that fellow housemates Vicky Jain and Ankita Lokhande were receiving 'special privileges' inside the Bigg Boss house.
The controversy escalated when the topic of Vicky Jain's personal grooming came to light. Jain confessed to using a hair patch, information that was previously unknown to the other contestants, adding a layer to the existing dispute.
Vicky Jain: "Yes, it's true. I have been using a hair patch. It’s nothing to hide or be ashamed of. Personal grooming is a choice, and everyone should be free to make that choice without the fear of judgment."
The revelation by Jain didn't seem to pacify the accusers. Instead, it sparked further debates centered around the alleged preferential treatment provided to the couple. The allegations of 'special privileges' refer to perceived advantages given discretely by the Bigg Boss to favored contestants, which might include anything from extra amenities to leniency in rules.
However, the makers of the show and host Salman Khan have yet to address these allegations publicly. The reality show, known for its entertainment quotient and unexpected twists, is no stranger to controversies. Nevertheless, this particular accusation has caught the attention of avid viewers, sparking discussions on social media about fairness and the authentic experience of participants in reality TV.
Ankita Lokhande: "We are here to play the game like everyone else. We have the same set of rules and no special treatment. The audience can see everything. We believe in playing fair and with integrity."
With Bigg Boss continually capturing the imagination of millions, this latest controversy promises to keep fans glued to their screens, awaiting the next turn of events. The show's producers are keen to maintain the balance between the drama that viewers demand and the equitable treatment of contestants that is expected from the flagship reality show.
As of now, the other Bigg Boss 17 housemates are waiting for an official explanation regarding this issue, and fans are eagerly anticipating how this will influence the dynamics within the house. Will the 'special privileges' debate lead to new alliances or provoke further conflict among the contestants? Only time will tell.
