If you thought the drama inside Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 9 house was a measure of its controversy quotient, it only promises to rise many notches now with the reality show inching towards a grand finale soon. Staying true to its blink-and-you-will-miss-the-action DNA, Thursday’s episode of the show delivers on all counts. Most of all, the competition is even more intense now, if not ugly. Imam Siddique, who was brought in to ruffle the tempers of the surviving contestants, manages to create a rift among them. And, in a first, after Prince’s success at pulling off romantic affairs inside the house, Rishabh too seems to be following suit.
Rishabh shaves off his beard early in the morning, only to be reprimanded by Priya, who says that she likes his “rough look” more. Imam chips in and asks Priya if Rishabh is her ‘type’ of a guy. Priya denies having any romantic feelings for Rishabh, but admits that she has a soft corner and feels extremely protective about him.
Bigg Boss introduces a new task, ‘Commander Imam’. It involves Imam commanding the surviving candidates and ensuring that everybody follows his orders. The entire house is converted into a ‘boot camp’ and the enthusiastic ‘cadets’ are charged up to get into the drill. The contestants perform the physical activities and push their limits to give their best in the task.
Imam challenges Rishabh to get his hair cut done by Mandana. Initially Rishabh agrees to do it but he gets into a petty argument with Mandana and refuses to get the hair cut from her. Imam chops off a portion of Rishabh’s hair on his own while he gets upset with the result.
When Priya refuses to follow Imam’s instructions, he decides to punish her: He asks her to take 50 dips in the pool, following which she fell to the ground and almost fainted. All contestants are challenged to stand on a block of ice while they need to do the task in rotation. Priya ruins her health, standing on the ice for too long.
Meanwhile, Imam gives the housemates an additional task to make two people give up and quit the task. Mandana finds out that someone has used her towel and gets upset over it, blaming everyone. Prince tries to explain to Mandana that he isn’t involved in the act but Mandana gets furious and ends up shouting at him. Prince snaps back at Mandana and the two of them get into an ugly fight. During a fight, Mandana tells Prince that he has been using people for his own benefits throughout the show. She says that he used Nora Fatehi for ‘brownie points’ while blaming him for Kishwar Merchant’s early exit from the game. Prince gets extremely hurt by Mandana’s allegations and is on the verge of a breakdown.
Later, Imam is unhappy with the friction between Prince and Mandana and requests them to resolve their issues. The two sit together in the sky lounge and try to sort out their differences as the day comes to an end.
