Bigg Boss is a show known for high drama, fights, “romance,” and so forth – but at the heart of it, each celebrity enters the house with their own plan of action on how to proceed and play the “game.” With a fast-track finale arriving in two weeks, it’s only “natural” that everything on the show would be done in fast-forward as well. Fights emerging within the first week, romances beginning – and ending within two weeks and intense animosities being born on the first day itself, Bigg Boss season 13 has taken off in a big way.
In Thursday’s episode of Bigg Boss, a fight breaks out between Paras Chhabra and Arti Singh. Throughout the episode, Arti is seen discussing Paras and his behavior, telling others that Paras is not truthworthy – as he is playing a game to win. Paras is seen distancing himself from several of the female players, including Arti, and the group begins to feel that he is not sincere.
Later, Arti and Rashami Desai’s problems continue when the two discuss their trust issues with one another. After the Queen task, Arti and Rashami both hold bitterness in their hearts against one another, while Rashami states that she no longer trusts Siddharth Shukla either.
In a task that moves the boys closer to nominations, Shehnaaz and Paras grow further apart when Shehnaaz gives Paras a black heart and Paras, in reply, tells her not to call him after Bigg Boss ends. Devoleena, Shefali and Arti also nominate Paras, which leaves Paras and Siddharth Shukla with the highest number of black rings.
Paras tries to play mediator and gets involved, seemingly siding with Rashami by telling Arti that Rashami shares a good equation with all the contestants, but somehow she and Arti do not get along. This bothers Arti and she becomes irritated with Paras. As the group walks away, Paras tells Arti that she’s trying to break Shehnaaz and Paras apart – to which Arti angrily responds that she always plays middle man between the two of them and bounces around passing on messages. She says that she is only doing this to clear their misunderstandings and to make everything okay between them, otherwise she doesn’t have any vested interest in the situation.
Paras tells Arti that he doesn’t have any interest in maintaining a relationship with a person who is “flip” – insinuating that Shehnaaz (“Sana”) cannot be trusted regarding her emotions and their relationship. Frustrated, Arti yells “Bhaad mein gayi Sana aur bhaad mein gaya tu!”. Paras responds that Arti is the one who is convincing the two at every turn that they are in love, saying “Hai pyar, hai pyar!” and says “Pyar bananay aaya hoon?” (Am I here to fall in love?). Throughout this entire scenario, Shehnaaz is seen walking around the house laughing and shooting him looks, seeming less than bothered. She tells Devoleena in the room, while the fight is going on, that she’s glad that she’s no longer in this mess, indicating the end of her involvement with Paras.
The Bigg Boss house has always been one where relationships change at a moment’s notice. However, this time, the equations in the house are forming and changing very quickly. With the second week coming to a close, relationships have never reached this level of intensity and anger at such a fast pace. With two weeks remaining for the first finale, it remains to be seen which bonds last, which ones form and which contestants remain in the house – and which ones will leave.
