It’s only Day 2 and there has been no dearth of action on Bigg Boss season 10. This was expected, with the combination of the common man (Indiawaale) and celebrity contestants (currently the Sevaks) on the show. One thing set to turn rather exciting in the coming days is the show’s first luxury budget task, as it will reveal some deep, dark secrets of the common contestants.
In ‘Raaz’, as the task is called, the celebrities will be given a riddle to solve and guess the name of the commoner contestant that the secret is attributed to. If the celebrities prove successful in solving the riddle, they will get to be the 'Maliks' of the house while the 'Indiawale' contestants will become their 'Sevaks' ie a turn of tables.
Also, if the celebrities give a correct reply, the person whose secret they are revealing, will have to admit their secret and displace the piece of paper placed in a bottle in the living area. At the start of this task, on Day 2, celebrity contestant Gaurav Chopra could successfully solve the riddle associated with common contestant Akanksha Sharma, the estranged wife of Yuvraj Singh’s younger brother.
Meanwhile, there has been plenty of altercations between the common man 'Indiawale' and celebrity contestants. For this week, the celebs are serving the 'Indiawale'. They are required to eat only on banana leaves and are forbidden from using any kitchen utensils. Additionally, they are not allowed to use the bathroom, gym or pool before the commoners.
On day two, celebrity contestant Karan Mehra and 'Indiawale' Manu Punjabi get into a fight when the latter tells Karan that the food they are making is really bad. He uses the word ‘vaahiyat’ (terrible).
The celebrities, as can be seen, are trying their best to keep up with their work and put up with all the condescending comments by the commoners in a calm and composed manner. Be it cooking or cleaning the pool three times a day, the celebs are completing all the tasks while many of the commoners are aggressive and have been time and again stirring controversies.
Om Swami’s over-assertive arguments and comments aren’t going down too well with the housemates. Celebrity contestant Lopamudra, who initially bonded with Om Swami, was seen getting into a full-blown fight with him on Day two. Swami is even seen commenting on the growing friendship between Gaurav and Akanksha and trying to dissuade Gaurav from going ahead with the relationship.
On the other hand, 'Indiawale' Manoj and Priyanka Jagga's unnecessary fighting and one-up-manship is annoying many, including their own team members. But the celebrities are united and are making sure they don’t cross the line or break any rules.
One contestant who is appearing strong is Gaurav (Chopra). Nominated for the eliminations this week, he is leaving no stone upturned to play it safe. He has, time and again helped his teammates out whenever they face the 'wrath' of Indiawale.
Gaurav also finds a solution by hiding the ‘Hukum ki ghanti’(or a bell that the Indiawaale can use to demand work from the Sevaks) and asks his team to sit back and enjoy.
Gaurav and Monalisa are nominated among the celebrity contestants; and Priyanka (Jagga) and Manu (Punjabi) are the commoners in the danger zone. Monalisa aka Antara Biswas may have kept a low profile till now, but she certainly is a strong contender.
