There seems to be no end of troubles for actor Sonali Raut, who got into a bitter scuffle with co-contestant Ali Quli Mirza in the Bigg Boss house on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old Xpose actor slapped Ali across the face, after which as punishment she has now been nominated by Bigg Boss himself for all the remaining weeks of the entire season of the reality show.
A source close to the show tells us that all this started after contestant Puneet Issar started having an argument with Ali over Sonali, alleging that Ali had said certain things about Sonali when actor Lisa Haydon had entered the show, two weeks back.
"Puneet said that Ali said such cheap things about Sonali that he cannot even utter those words again. Hearing that Sonali was furious, and she and Ali started shouting at each other, when Sonali lost control and slapped Ali across his face," says our source, adding, "Ali, too, lost control and threatened to leave the show. He tried to climb the walls of the house and go out. Later he said he was feeling unwell, and that his blood pressure was fluctuating. A doctor was called in to see him but his medical condition is perfect now. However, Sonali has been harshly reprimanded by Bigg Boss and she has been nominated for the entire season, now."
This is not the first time that Sonali and Ali got into a fight on this show. A few weeks back, Sonali had blamed Ali for inappropriately touching her from under the blanket, for which he was immediately removed from the post of the house captain.
Meanwhile, this is the third time that someone has been punished for violence on the show, this season. Diandra was warned by Bigg Boss after she pushed Sonali during a weekly task, and then when Puneet grabbed Arya Babbar by the neck and threw him on the ground for which he was ousted from the show, and later brought inside in a cage.
