The show kicked off last weekend with the host Salman Khan promising more twists this season in the backdrop of an airoplane-shaped house where the contestants are staying. A new concept of the ‘secret society’ where few contestants who cannot be voted out but pose problems to other inmates is expected.
Along with this new changes in the nomination rules have been introduced in this season. Once the house-mates for eviction are nominated, there will be 24 hours to vote and save them from Thursday night to Friday night. Viewers can vote to decide the fate of their favourites or otherwise. On Saturday during the show, host Salman Khan will announce the results and one contestant will be evicted from the house.
In the first three days, the nomination process began with contestants taking the photos of the fellow house-mates who they want to nominate and then burn the photos. In addition, the ‘secret society’ members would also nominate other house-mates for eviction. Now that the four nominated list is out, it remains to be seen who among them gets eliminated — Gautam Gulati, Sonali Raut, Sukirti Kandpal or Natasa Stankovic.
Actress Sonali Raut one of the first to be nominated was, in fact, there in the show against the wishes of her parents. She had said, “Of course, my parents were not okay with the idea. They were concerned about me but they agreed later. I am just at the beginning of my career so I have nothing to lose by entering the house. But she said she was more interested in meeting Salman Khan. “Another reason for doing the show was to meet Salman Khan. I am a huge fan. I would get to meet him every weekend,” Sonali, who acted in the Bollywood film ‘The Xpose, said.
Serbian model Natasa Stankovic was keen to enter Bollywood via the Bigg Boss 8. “I decided to do the show because I want to improve my Hindi. My Hindi is not good at all. I need to learn the language as I want to stay here and join the Hindi film industry. I hope that the show helps me get into films not just songs but good roles in movies.”
Sonali Raut and Gautam Gulati were found violating the rules often. Sonali was not able to overcome her English speaking habit while Gautam was found sleeping during the daytime.
In fact, Upen Patel voted for Sukirti Kandpal, who was friendly with him but fell apart due to some small misunderstanding and Aarya Babbar nominated Sonali Raut and vice versa. Most of the inamtes were against Serbian model Natasa who was unable to adjust due to food and language problems. Natasha got 6 votes and Sukirti 5 votes from other inmates to be out.
