'Bigg Boss 14': Jaan Kumar Sanu evicted, and more
In Sunday's episode of Bigg Boss 14, Jaan Kumar Sanu was announced as the latest contestant to get evicted. The show's host Salman Khan made the eviction announcement toward the end of the episode. For the unversed, Jaan is the son of famous Bollywood singer Kumar Sanu. Here are more updates from the Bigg Boss house.
Jaan, who got evicted last night was nominated for eviction along with other contestants such as Rubina Dilaik, Jasmin Bhasin, Eijaz Khan, Nikki Tamboli and Kavita Kaushik. One of the youngest contestants on the reality show, he was introduced before the premiere night of the show. During his stay inside the Bigg Boss house, he built a strong friendship with fellow contestant Nikki Tamboli.
Even though Jaan started as an underdog on the show, he found himself troubled by controversies, after his friendship with Nikki and arguments with fellow contestants Rahul Vaidya and Eijaz. Rahul even passed a nepotism remark against Jaan, after which Jaan opened up about being raised solely by his mother, not father Kumar Sanu. The nepotism controversy gained much attention from fans.
This weekend, the show was graced by producer Ekta Kapoor. She revealed that she had judged the contestants on the basis of their passion, "dabangg-ness" and passion for victory. While Ekta said that she was impressed with this year's contestants, she particularly praised Eijaz. Ekta also played a game with the contestants where she asked them to mimic their housemates.
Last week, Salman's driver and two household staff members tested positive for COVID-19, after which the Bigg Boss 14 host was in self-isolation with his family members. Though there were speculations that Salman might not return for the weekend episode, he joined the shoot after testing negative. Bigg Boss 14 premiered on Colors TV on October 3.
