As the days go by, the tasks in Colors TV's Bigg Boss 10 get ever more complicated. This in turn brings hostilities among the contestants to a peak.
In episode 16, aired on Tuesday night (1 November 2016), Bigg Boss introduces a luxury budget task called "Raja or Rank" wherein the Indiawale must play royals, and the celebrities their workers.
Self-styled godman Sawmi Om is made the rajah and all he seems to want to do is lock up the other contestants in jail. Manveer Gujjar is the 'rajkumar' while Nitibha Kaul plays his wife. Gaurav Chopra plays vizier and Bani J the 'angrakshak'. The Indiawale and the celebrities transform themselves into various characters belonging to a royal family and in order to help them get into the skin of their respective characters, the housemates are given special costumes which they have to wear for the task.
However, the celebrities get an opportunity to turn the tables on the Indiawale through a secret task. The celebrities must capture the Indiawale in 12 orchestrated moments. One of these includes Mona kissing Manu on the cheek. With this secret task, the celebrities will get yet one more chance to become the ‘maaliks’ of the house, provided they succeed of course, and the Indiawale do not get to know what's afoot.
As the ‘Raja aur Rank’ task begins, the Indiawale face a tough time in taking advantage of the celebrities especially with Om Swami and Nitibha’s constant bickering over the rules of the game. Even Manveer gets into a screaming match with Nitibha. NavinPrakash too is at the receiving end of Nitibha’s temper and finds himself side-lined in the process. Om Swami ends up taking his role of a king too seriously, thereby annoying even his fellow royal family members. Scared of losing the task, Manu takes charge and attempts to bring some method to the madness.
Manu’s overjoyed when Mona Lisa surprises him with a kiss on his cheek. But Manu is not aware that Mona’s peck is actually part of a secret task. Since several of the other contestants are also in the dark about this, they question Mona's intentions, especially Lopamudra Raut and Bani. This obviously doesn’t go down well with Mona, who breaks down, saying her teammates are making a mountain out of a molehill.
While Gaurav pushes the celebrities to complete the secret task, Manu and Manveer find him too pushy and try to have him put in jail under false accusations. But Gaurav smoothly escapes punishment. Rahul, on the other hand, is not as lucky when his actions around 'King' Swami land him in jail. When Bigg Boss supplies the celebrities with paints and massage oil to fuel the luxury budget task, Rohan finds himself banished to jail for misbehaving with Nitibha, while painting Swami Om's picture. And, as Lopamudra approaches Manveer with the massage oil, her intentions are misunderstood, resulting in a battle of words between the two. Meanwhile, some pictures clicked by the celebrities of team Indiawale, as part of the secret task, are leaked.
Clearly, the drama is only going to escalate over the episode to come.
