Since Bigg Boss 15 started streaming on Voot, the following attendees have been evicted from the house. They are Urfi Javed, Zeeshan Khan, Ridhima Pandit and, last but not least, the former secretary of Madhuri Dixit Yaane ki Riku’s actor son Karan Nath. The more you are connected to the other inmates, the better the chances of survival in the house, says Karan Johar, who is often referred to as a khadoos because of his disciplined demeanor
From ridiculing and highlighting his biased behavior to threatening to boycott Karan Johar for making heinous and angry remarks about non-industry people, there have been extreme reactions. There have also been many complaints about how Karan, who she believed was a huge contributor to nepotism in the film industry, about the Bigg Boss on Voot’s attendees not having a fair chance to speak as a presenter as only KJo is focused mainly based on Shamita Shetty, Pratik Sehajpal & Neha Bhasin as they happen to be his staunch favorites.
As presenter, Karan Johar, popularly known as KJo, people have been extremely upset with him from day one for being nepotistic on the show. His soft corner for Shamita Shetty is clearly visible when he interacts with her in front of all the other roommates, which doesn’t go over well with fans and other roommates. In fact, many celebs who saw the show from the outside described him as very, very “biased”.

As Bigg Boss ex-contestant Sofia Hayat says, ‘Karan Johar is even worse not only in his films, but also in Bigg Boss compared to Salman Khan.’ Sofia even went a step further and accused him of promoting nepotism as well. Karan Johar has reprimanded Divya Agarwal repeatedly by reminding her that he is a host and she is a candidate and he deserves respect. While Divya just wanted to be able to talk and express herself, Karan has often spoken rudely to her, asking her to “watch her tone and lower it”. Fans have reminded KJo that what you give is what you get, and if he can’t respect the contestants, he doesn’t reserve the right to request it just because he’s an industry boy and today’s chief honcho a film production company is!
Sofia Hayat adds, “Karan encourages violence and nepotism … if this show were on in the UK they would immediately take it off the air for inciting violent behavior and aggression. Karan plays with the old way of offending people to get high TRPs. It’s an old trick and it’s the same old, staid formula from Bigg Boss. I should know because not long ago I was part of Bigg Boss. “

While Ridhima says she was never given enough time to prove her worth, Karan Nath says he was never given a “fair chance” at all. Karan also recalls a recent episode where Milind Gaba and Zeeshan Khan discussed Karan Johar being biased as a host. Karan Nath shares his thoughts with the popular Telly Chakkar portal: “I don’t know whether Karan Johar is biased or not. I just feel like I’m being ignored. Actually, I would rather say that I was not noticed at all. I am sad that when I did something good, it went unnoticed. I’ve tried to be good, but nobody wants to talk about the good. He should have mentioned good things too (on Weekend Ka Vaar). Even fans were dissatisfied with their eviction.
After Zeeshan Khan shared photos of his eviction injury, fans started the “Bring Zeeshan Back” trend. One consistent thing about these tweets is that fans state that KJo was very unfair with attendees. In fact, they indicate that this is what made the great tyrants Nishant and Prateek into heroes as well. Videos are circulating on social media showing Zeeshan Khan having an anxiety attack. Fans are quick enough to blame KJo for being the sole reason Zeeshan’s health is deteriorating. It now remains to be seen whether this is just a subtle trick or a sublime trick by Zeeshan Khan to plunge into the spider web of audience sympathy or get Karan Johar into the soup.

Until the winner is crowned in-house at the end of the six weeks before Bigg Boss begins his tenure on Color Channel, you have no choice but to put up with the kootchiecooing of Shamita Shetty and Raqesh Bapat, who are the soul mates them in the house. I applaud Shamita Shetty for openly admitting on national television that she is now 42 and had a bad relationship six years ago, despite not revealing the name of the person she was in a relationship with who got mad.
When I think about it, I think Raqesh Bapat and Shamita Shetty are made for each other because they both need good anchors for their lives. While Shamita has had a number of affairs in the past, but none of them have been fruitful, Raqesh Bapat had a bad marriage with Riddhi Dogra who got divorced, like Shamita, who despite making a hit debut film failed to achieve success like Mohabbat even under the banner of Yashraj , poor Raqesh Bapat failed to become famous when he tried his hand at Hindi films and television series and later Marathi films.

As Karan Johar clearly explained, I also have the feeling that the Bigg Boss in Voot lives up to its title as an OTT platform, also through the exaggerated antics of all its inmates since the game started three weeks ago. In addition to Raqesh and Shamita, Neha Bhasin gives singing lessons to her connection Pratik Sahejpal, with whom she is said to have a romantic relationship at home. Raqesh Bapat, Shamita Shetty, Akshara Singh, Millind Gaba, Nishant Bhat, Divya Agarwal and Muskan Jattana are the survivors who have not yet been evicted in the Bigg Boss. It now remains to be seen who will be evacuated from the house in the next three weeks.
