After Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss OTT 2 had its grand finale, now all eyes are on Bigg Boss 17. Like the last season, some of the Bigg Boss OTT 2 contestants might be poached for the TV show, Bigg Boss 17. According to latest reports, Abhishek Malhan and Jiya Shankar are not likely to participate on that show.

Bigg Boss follower The Khabri has reported the same. Thus, AbhiYa, as they were popularly known on Bigg Boss OTT 2, will not continue on TV.

See the post here:

Abhishek Malhan has just recovered from an illness. He was hospitalized the past few days. Bigg Boss OTT 2 winner Elvish Yadav revealed that his friend, the runner-up of the show, was discharged from the hospital. Abhishek had fallen ill right before the grand finale of Bigg Boss OTT 2 and was recovered only to be able to attend the finale and if he wins, hold the trophy.

Apart from his health, Abhishek was also quite clear that he would most probably not go for the TV edition of Bigg Boss. He caters to an audience on OTT and that seems to be another reason why Abhishek would rather stick to his OTT stint.

The fact that he was the runner-up on Bigg Boss OTT 2 could also play a major part. Bigg Boss 16 also saw Bigg Boss OTT contestant Pratik Sahejpal make it to the stage but be a runner-up of the show.

Meanwhile, Jiya has been bashed left, right and centre thanks to her stint on Bigg Boss OTT 2. Her relations with friend Avinash Sachdev and Abhishek Malhan became a constant topic of discussion and were doubted upon till the very last moment on the show and even outside it. This could be one of the reasons why she might not want to associate with the show anymore.

On the other hand, AbhiYa fans were up for some disappointment at Bigg Boss OTT 2 grand finale. Ananya Panday asked Jiya if she felt something for Abhishek. Jiya did confirm that she had feelings for Abhishek. He, on the other hand, had a straight no for Jiya. Thus, their fans were up for disappointment. But, never say never, we guess.
