It's only been five days since one of the most popular TV reality shows, Bigg Boss, went on air for the 14th season and it's already surrounded by controversy. Each episode of the show has captured eyeballs from the fights between the contestants due to the house duties or disagreements over tasks. Bigg Boss assigned an immunity challenge to all the show's female contestants on Wednesday, in which they had to woo and seduce Toofani Senior Sidharth Shukla, winner of Bigg Boss 13, if they wanted to keep themselves safe from the nomination. The assignment consists of three rounds and Bigg Boss asked the actor to play a tattoo artist in the first round. The girls had to come as his clients, speak to him seductively and impress him to be safe, according to the assignment.
Sidharth gets on a bike and girls have to clean it in the upcoming episode, as seen in the promo. They bring water and dirt on themselves, too, in order to do the same. The campaign posted on the channel's official social media pages as well as the fan clubs, however, has not gone down well with many individuals as they believe it objectivizes women and encourages vulgarity. It features Nikki Tamboli, Pavitra Punia, wooing Sidharth with Jasmin Bhasin and Rubina Dilaik. Soon, the promo clip went viral and the producers were slammed and requested a ban on the show by netizens. In reality, due to its contentious nature, the show was converted from a prime time slot (9 pm) to a later time slot (10:30 pm). It is still being regarded as a family show, though.
Nikki and Sidharth, meanwhile, were seen flirting with each other in the last episode. Sidharth was seen saying during a conversation with Gauahar Khan and Jasmin that Nikki is the sort of girl he wants in his life. Nikki called Sidharth, in response, someone who is 'marriage stuff'. With 11 contestants, including Rubina and her husband Abhinav Shukla, Eijaz Khan, Nishant Singh, Jasmin, Pavitra, Jaan Kumar Sanu, Nikki, Shehzad Deol, Sara Gurpal and Rahul Vaidya, Bigg Boss 14 began on October 3. Gauahar Khan, Sidharth and Hina Khan joined the show as seniors of Toofani with some additional powers.
