Putting an end to the luxury budget task, Bigg Boss 12 house will echo with the festivities of Diwali. Kickstarting the celebration, an emotional atmosphere will take over the Bigg Boss house. While some would be happy about the festival, few will be seen shedding tears as they would be missing their family. All the housemates would dress up in their best to enjoy the festival. Megha Dhade will make some special snacks and halwa as ‘bhog’ for everyone.

Giving the contestants a beautiful surprise, Bigg Boss will tease them with audio clips from their family members and leave them guessing the speaker. Bigg Boss will then announce that their families have sent video messages for every contestant and that they can see the same in the activity area. With this announcement, the housemates’ happiness will double up. As part of this task, Bigg Boss will call three contestants in the activity area after every interval. Unaware of a twist that would follow, Karanvir Bohra, Shivashish Mishra and Surbhi Rana will be the first batch to go.

The major twist in the game would be when Bigg Boss would declare that only one amongst the three can watch the video from their family. This will come as a major shock to them and all three will break down into tears but finally come to the consensus that Surbhi must be given a chance to watch her video. This gesture will make Surbhi extremely emotional and help her settle her differences with both of them.

Next up would be Jasleen Matharu, Somi Khan and Megha and they’ll give up their chance for Jasleen. Sreesanth, Rohit Suchanti and Deepak Thakur will follow next. After a lot of discussions, they will decide that Deepak must be given a chance to watch the video. Last ones to enter the activity area will be Romil Chaudhary, Srishty Rode and Dipika Kakar. Srishty and Dipika will unanimously decide that Romil must be given the chance to see his child, who he misses deeply.

Another twist will take over when Romil will refuse to watch his video and make a major sacrifice for one of his Happy Club members. He will request Bigg Boss to give his chance to Somi as she has been really upset and needed to see her family. Bigg Boss would agree to his request.

In the evening to celebrate Diwali and predict the future of the contestants, popular numerologist Sanjay Jumaani will visit the Bigg Boss house. Everyone would be excited to have him over and know about their future in the house. While Jumaani will share some general remarks about the housemates, he will surprise them by saying that Sreesanth will be among the top five. He will suggest the former cricketer to up his game and play smartly.
