This season, the change in the format of the reality show Bigg Boss 7 brought forth newer clashes among the contestants.

The house was divided in two sections — called Jannat (heaven) and Jahannum (hell) — and every week, contestants were voted for an exchange between the two living spaces. But now, the makers have planned yet another twist in the show. Soon, they will close off the Jahannum section and move contestants from both sides into the Jannat section.

A source says, "As the heaven side can accommodate only six to seven people, the biggest concern will be the lack of enough sleeping space for the participants. Also, all 12 of them will have to share two washrooms." The strain on the resources is expected to create more drama on this popular show, which frequently witnesses petty fights among the celebrity contestants.

Interestingly, last season, the makers had created a mud house half-way through the show, where the eliminated contestants were housed without the knowledge of the other inmates.

Salman’s moral policing
On a recent episode of Bigg Boss 7, host Salman Khan minced no words as he chided inmates Armaan Kohli and Tanisha Mukherjee for their public display of affection. 

In the last few episodes, the two have frequently been seen holding hands and consoling each other.

Khan’s recent remark (“Remember there are 84-plus cameras in the house”) took both Armaan and Tanisha by surprise. Post this comment, they have decided to stay away from each other. While Tanisha seems okay with this, Armaan has been looking a bit miffed.
