He big boss home witnesses new altercations every day. Whether it’s a conflict between friends or the unfiltered opinions of the contestants, the drama keeps audiences spellbound.
The past few days saw Jiya Shankar at the center of the show’s news. His captaincy was littered with accusations of ‘self-centeredness’. In one such case, he sent Manisha Rani for former contestant Cyrus Broacha to jail for breaking the rules. His recent emotional turmoil in front of his close friend Jad Hadid also drew attention. The duo were able to easily settle the matter after she broke down and revealed the truth about her name. Now, her disagreement with Pooja Bhatt has again shifted the focus towards her.
What happened between Pooja Bhatt and Jiya Shankar
A verbal spat ensued between the two while a task between Pooja Bhatt and Avinash Sachdev was being discussed. During the task, Manisha Rani asked Pooja to change his vote to Elvish, to which Jiya replied, “Aap vote kaise change kar sakti ho?” This led Bhatt to blame Jiya for indulging in groupism and betraying people by choosing friends at his own convenience. Digging into his friendships with Avinash and Falaq, he pointed out that Jiya would call him unfair one moment and make it right the next.
Slamming her for the ‘inconsistent’ nature, she pointed to the recent disparity between Jiya and Jad Hadid. Jiya chose Avinash over Jad in the captaincy race, citing “diplomatic play” as the reason for ousting Jad. She reasoned that she was thanking Avinash for earlier favors from him. Jiya tried to clarify her earlier decision to choose Avinash over Jad. However, her efforts ended in vain as Pooja was too domineering to be dominated.
To further escalate the furious situation, Jiya pointed out Pooja’s complicated relationship with everyone in the house. In response, Pooja accused her of being childish and abusive towards other contestants.
There are many layers to a fight before the problem is resolved. Pooja called Jiya “temperamental” and arrogant. Jiya, on the other hand, accused Pooja of double standards. This prompted the actress and filmmaker to take aim at Jiya about wearing makeup, saying, “Put your makeup on and relax.” In her defense, Jiya reiterated, “I put on makeup and curled my hair. I like it that way.”
Later, when Pooja switched her attention to Falaq Naazz, she warned her about playing a weaker game each day as she is involved with Jiya. As events unfolded, Pooja yelled at Jiya, “I’m not talking to you. Now, she shuts her mouth. Shut the fuck up.” Soon after, Jiya pointed out that Pooja was abusing her. However, Pooja continued, “You don’t scare me and you don’t impress me either.”
In a conversation with Jad, she called Jiya “toxic” and passive-aggressive. Now, it will be crucial to see the impact of the recent verbal spat between Jiya Shankar and Pooja Bhatt on the nominations.
