Avid television viewers in India are glued to their seats as 'Bigg Boss' is back on the small screen. The twelfth season of the reality show hosted by Salman Khan kickstarted recently and has been in the news ever since. ‘Bigg Boss’ is making headlines once again, this time for a contestant threatening to leave the show. Former Indian cricketer Sreesanth has threatened to quit after a task was called off since he failed to perform it accurately.
The second day in the 'Bigg Boss' house was an action-packed one for the contestants. The first task which was titled ‘BB Press Conference’ pitted singles against couples with 'Bigg Boss' season 11 winner Shilpa Shinde and television actor Karan Patel as the moderators. As a part of the task, Sreesanth challenged contestants Sourabh Patel and Shivashish Mishra and was required to prove why he was a stronger contestant than the duo. However, to everyone’s surprise, the former cricketer bluntly refused to make a point despite being pestered by his teammates. After this, Bigg Boss called off the challenge and what followed was a verbal feud between Sreesanth and the other contestants with the former taking a dig at Somi and Saba's upbringing. Unable to put up with the argument that followed, the former Indian cricketer was seen taking off his mic and asking Bigg Boss to let him go.
Meanwhile, ‘Bigg Boss’ set the internet on fire after Jasleen Matharu, 28, and devotional singer Anup Jalota, 65, were introduced as a couple on the show. As per reports, Jasleen stated that the age difference between Jalota and her has never been a matter of concern. Reportedly, she also laid stress on the fact that the relationship was under wraps for three and a half years. 'Bigg Boss' season 12 premiered on September 16 with the host Salman Khan introducing all the contestants one by one. This time the concept of the show is 'Vichitra Jodi' and while some contestants are entering the house in pairs, there are some who have made solo entries. Some of the contestants also include Dipika Kakar, Karanvir Bohra, Shristy Rode, and Neha Pendse among others.
