Meanwhile, Jigna Vora and Anurag Dobhal bond. Bigg Boss then asks Anurag why is he giving his favourite contestant ‘gyaan.’

KhanZaadi again

Bigg Boss tries to talk to KhanZaadi, who says that she is alone in the house. This hurts Rinku Dhawan. Since KhanZaadi said that her stomach hurts while eating, she has hurt Jigna too.

Isha vs Samarth

Isha walks out as she feels Samarth helps Mannara. Samarth follows and the two have an argument. Samarth gets violent and Isha asks him to stay away. Samarth cries in solace and Abhishek comes to console him. Samarth explains the situation to Vicky and Isha comes, telling Samarth she will end the relationship if needed. The two then apologize to each other.

Abhishek later asks Samarth if he’s serious about Isha and he refuses the same. He says that Isha proposed to him. The two realize that she was actually seeing both of them. Samarth is upset that Isha lies a lot. Samarth brings up the topic to Isha and she tries to avoid the topic. Abhishek then tells Isha ‘heroine nikli villain.’
