Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, whose sense of humour often gets into inapprehensible levels while hosting the reality show ‘Bigg Boss 8’, stormed off the sets in the last episode of the show. The superstar, apparently, got upset after his joke was not taken sportingly by one of the housemates – Karishma Tanna.
It must be of knowledge that the erstwhile in-love people Puneet, Pritam, Praneet and Gautam, jointly known as P3G, broke up and Pritam and Praneet were lately seen to drift towards Karishma and Upen. So, Pritam, who was earlier seen to be under the ‘chhatra chaaya’ of Puneet Issar, is not said to be greatly influenced by Karishma.
Salman Khan, who has a fondness for the P3G quatret, started teasing Karishma and Pritam, indirectly linking them up. The notable point here is that while Pritam Singh is a married man with a son and a pregnant wife, Karishma is said to be in a committed relationship with a model actor.
The ‘joking around’ didn’t seem to go down well with the actress and she began crying. When Pritam asked Karishma why she was crying, she said it is not funny to joke around all the time.
It was then, that Salman told Karishma that ‘Bigg Boss’ is an entertainment show and they all were having fun. If she wants it to be a boring show, all can sit back and do nothing. He also said that everyone even teases co-contestants Dimpy Mahajan and Ali Quli Mirza, but they seem to take it sportingly. When Upen Patel wanted to interrupt to explain Karishma’s side, Salman told him not to argue and get in between. A rather seemingly upset Salman then stormed off the stage.
However, Salman was brought back to the dais and a weeping Karishma explained her side to the ‘Dabangg’ Khan. Salman didn’t seem much impressed with the answers, though.
Salman Khan has his own style of hosting which often comes under scanner for the flamboyance he displays especially while dealing the housemates. He is also said to have favourites every season, and he stands by them no matter what.
The history of the last year seems to have been repeating itself as last year it was Gauahar Khan, who was mostly at the receiving end of Salman’s wrath. Gauahar later went on to become the winner of the show. So this year will it be the ‘caty’ Karishma Tanna?
Well! That we’ll know by time, but what we do know is that this siding of Salman with certain contestants has irked many a people and “Salman” has been trending on Twitter since last night, akin to last year’s ‘#BiasedSalman’.
Remains to be seen what the fate of the show, Salman and Karishma will be, but the show, surely, has been able to keep the audience on toes.
