Bigg Boss Season 13: Highlights of Day 28, October 28, 2019
Bigg Boss Season 13 continues to heat up as Farah Khan visits the house to participate in a task, playing judge as the housemates lodge allegations against each other
With the countdown to the finale beginning this week, Bigg Boss season 13 has a lot of tricks up its sleeve. With the wild cards entering this week, the household relationships will (hopefully) be shaken up with some housemates leaving and others remaining. In the latest episode, a special guest enters the house and a fun task is carried out – possibly one of the few that these contestants have managed to finish effectively.
Shehnaaz Gill, Arti Singh and Asim Riaz play around in the bathroom, dancing and acting while Rashami Desai, Paras Chhabra and Shefali Bagga discuss Siddharth Dey and the issues Salman Khan brought up on Weekend Ka Vaar, along with Rashami’s issues with how he handles his conflicts. Later, Shehnaaz speaks to Shefali and Siddharth about their conflict. Shehnaaz apologizes for cursing at Shefali, but insists that she did it in retaliation, while Shefali insists that Shehnaaz cursed first. The three seem to clear things up.
Rashami, Devoleena, Paras and Shefali are sitting in the garden area when Asim approaches Rashami to discuss her criticism of how the bathrooms are cleaned. While Asim faults Rashami for comparing his cleaning of the bathroom to the way Paras cleans it, Rashami tries to explain that she doesn’t like the way Sidharth Shukla chops vegetables, so she asks him to do it. This comparison irks Sidharth, who is informed by Asim about the statement, and he approaches her, but she says that Sidharth can discuss it with her if he has an issue. The fight blows up and Asim goes inside and discusses the situation with Paras, who remains calm and tries to explain Rashami’s point further, saying that these tasks can be split between the housemates, but Asim and Sidharth Shukla tell him that only that group shares duties and complains about the other group’s work. When Mahira Sharma later tells Asim that the floor doesn’t get cleaned properly in the bedroom, he passes the comment on to Sidharth Shukla, who ignores it, saying that the person who is saying it can’t be bothered to tell it to him directly.
Outside, Shehnaaz, Arti, Asim and Sidharth Shukla talk about how Shefali is crying outside, due to the comments from Salman Khan on Weekend Ka Vaar, saying that her ego is hurt. The day starts new with “Happy Diwali” playing and the housemates begin sorting out their issues with a positive attitude. Rashami and Shehnaaz discuss their relationship, along with Shefali’s problem with Shehnaaz, Rashami stating that she isn’t taking sides, but understands both points.
A new task is introduced to the housemates, where they will be divided into two teams – Team Shukla (Sidharth, Asim, Shehnaaz, Arti and Devoleena) and Team Rashami (Siddharth Dey, Shefali, Paras, Rashami and Mahira). The two teams will have to come up with accusations against the other team, putting one housemate on “trial” and their team will have to defend them, the lawyers being Rashami and Sidharth Shukla. The guest judge is director, and long-time Bigg Boss fan, Farah Khan.
The first accusation comes from Rashami’s team against Asim regarding the tea leaves and his aggression in response to such a small issue. A common theme in this episode is Farah Khan screaming over the housemates as the housemates argue, yelling at them to speak one at a time. Farah also informs the housemates that viewers are giving up on the show and changing the channel, because no one can understand what the housemates are saying when they all talk at once. After hearing the “defense” from both sides, Farah states that Rashami’s team only fights against Shukla’s team and does not stand for the right person if they are from the other team. However, she also points out that Asim has insulted Rashami’s food and their team is very ungrateful towards the kitchen team, while also stating that the kitchen team needs to keep the attitude to a low when cooking. Farah tells Asim that he was not known before being in the house and should be grateful for now being a star and not complain so much about food. Farah gives the point to Rashami’s team.
The second accusation comes from Rashami’s team again, against Sidharth Shukla. Rashami states that his aggression is intense during the task, but also adds that the girls feel unsafe with him in the house. This statement costs Rashami’s team the point, because they phrased the accusation in a way that makes Sidharth seem dangerous, which Farah refutes. Rashami also uses a strange tactic by slamming the glass in front of Farah to give her an example of Sidharth’s aggression. Farah becomes irritated by this act and also sternly tells Mahira and the girls that they are not in danger and are capable to verbally defend themselves. She also tells Devoleena that her comment regarding #MeToo was highly inappropriate and people are watching. She gives the point to the Shukla’s.
Shefali asks Farah to clear the air regarding Shefali’s image, but Farah tells Shefali that they are being shown the way they are. Shefali and Shehnaaz hug and make up. The third accusation comes from the Shukla team against Rashami, stating that she is two-faced. While the two bicker, Rashami clears her opinion on Arti, stating that she’s a friend, but has become difficult to speak to in the house. Arti and Rashami clear their stance and appear to understand each other. As Sidharth and Rashami continue to argue, Farah declares that she throws this case out, as there will not be a solution. She asks to two to have a discussion and keep others out of it. She bids the housemates goodbye.
The housemates begin working out their differences with Rashami and Devoleena talking to Shehnaaz, explaining that they were looking out for her by asking her to play an individual game – which is what Paras had told her as well during the jail task. Asim and Sidharth believe the two are brainwashing Shehnaaz against them. Inside, Shehnaaz and Paras are chatting and Paras tells Shehnaaz that her team is using her, but he has always looked out for her. Devoleena and Arti discuss their perceptions of Arti’s relationship with Sidharth. Devoleena tells Arti that it looks as though Arti is playing through Sidharth’s mind.
This episode finally sees a breakthrough on the show in terms of both entertainment and housemates understanding their flaws. With the exception of Sidharth Shukla and Asim, every contestant is seen self-reflecting over their behavior and attitudes and are seen extending an olive branch to their “enemies.” Now it remains to be seen whether this truce remains tomorrow or whether the contestants resume business as usual in their groups. And what will happen when the wildcards begin trickling in?
