Bigg Boss 9: Puneet Vashist evicted; Gautam Gulati visits the house


After initial few dull weeks in ‘Bigg Boss 9’, the reality show spiced up with the entry of two wild card contestants – Rishabh Sinha and Puneet Vashist. However, Puneet gets evicted on his first weekend itself.

Puneet was nominated for elimination along with Aman, Kishwer, Digangana, Rochelle and Rimi Sen. Rochelle and Kishwer were already declared safe on Saturday’s episode. The show’s host Salman Khan declares Rimi and Digangna safe and asks Aman and Puneet about their gut feeling. Finally, Aman survies while Puneet is shown the door.

Puneet, best known for his role in Shah Rukh Khan-starrer film ‘Josh’, was charged of being arrogant by the housemates. Salman had also grilled him for spreading lies that Shah Rukh and Salman were bidding to work with him.

Meanwhile, former ‘Bigg Boss’ contestants Kamya Punjabi of season seven and Gautam Gulati, winner of season eight Halla Bol, interact with the contestants. Gautam enters the house and talks to housemates and gives them tips to fair well in the game. He then joins Salman on the stage and Kamya and a newsperson from a leading channel for a panel discussion with the contestants.

Kamya tells her friend Kishwer that she had behaved rudely when she walked out on Bigg Boss during the highway task. She also expresses her disappointment at Kishwer for calling her co-contestants “uncultured” and “uneducated,” and asked her on what basis she made such remarks.

Gautam tells Rishabh that he is being overshadowed by Kishwer, and asks Digangana why she is unable to establish herself even after being on the show for so long. Digangana replies that she does not interfere in other people’s matter as long as it does not impact her.

The cast of upcoming film ‘Hate Story 3’ Daisy Shah, Zareen Khan, Karan Singh Grover and Sharman Joshi also arrive on the sets to promote their film. Daisy and Zareen, who had worked with Salman in ‘Jai Ho’ and ‘Veer’ respectively, also performed with him and interacted with the contestants.

Bigg Boss also does a lie detector test on the contestants who were unaware that it was a fake test.
