Fans believe Bigg Boss OTT is being partial towards the two actors and took to social media to express their rage.
Bigg Boss OTT fans have a bone to pick with the makers of the show. After coming across a video clip from a task that Raqesh Bapat and Shamita Shetty performed in the house a few days ago, they say they have reasons to believe that Bigg Boss OTT is ensuring that the duo stays in the house for a longer time.
#Raqesh :It doesn't affect me yaar..chill.."I'M SAFE FOR A LONG TIME " (he's whispering this to Shamita)#ShamitaShetty:Haa?— Nishant Bhat Official FC (@NishantBhatFC) August 13, 2021
Rqesh:I'm safe for a long time
What is this yaar?@BiggBoss @karanjohar @justvoot#NishantBhat #PratikSehajpal #RidhimaPandit #DivyaAgarwal #MillindGaba pic.twitter.com/Mze2yKfhRU
The video clip shows Raqesh and Shamita not taking any interest to participate in the hair colouring task under Pratik Sehajpal and Akshara Singh's captaincy. They are seen blaming Pratik and Akshara instead for being biased. In the midst of the task, both Raqesh and Shamita is heard saying that it 'doesn't matter' to them. Raqesh whispers to Shamita that he's safe for a long time and Shamita responds that she is too.
This statement, which has come to fans' notice, led to irate tweets and posts on social media as the netizens feel they are sure to reach Bigg Boss 15 and the show's finale without even trying. Sushmita and Raqesh's fans then tried to justify their statements saying that most of the contestants 'come with a clause'.
Bigg Boss OTT host Karan Johar also noticed the conversation and questioned Raqesh over his 'safe' statement during the Sunday Ka Vaar episode. The Tum Bin actor then said what he meant was that he trusts his fans enough to believe that they wouldn't throw him out of the house so soon.
Raqesh and Shamita have been trying to build their connection in the house. Despite getting an option to change their partners, the two chose to stick together, even when there was an option for Raqesh to be paired up with Divya Agarwal.
Bigg Boss OTT can be viewed from Monday-Saturday at 8 pm and Sunday at 9 pm. It can also be live-streamed on the OTT platform Voot.
