Spicing up relationships has been Bigg Boss’ forte. The controversial reality series, which is responsible for break-ups and hook-ups, is unapologetically bindaas and bold.
From pitting real life couples against each other and turning their lives upside down, there’s much drama the series has seen in its nine years…we recount some of the most memorable ones. Take a look:
Kishwar Merchant and Suyyash Rai
The current hotties of the Bigg Boss house, who have both been ousted, faced a lot of trials and tribulations in their relationship while at the house. Despite their love for each other, they had to undergo phases of misunderstandings and pain in many of the tasks. In fact, seeing his girlfriend act like a dog in a task, Suyyash broke down in tears. While it was touching, it also showed us the length the makers can go to put a couple on task. Sigh.
Rahul Mahajan and Dimpy Ganguly
The ex-couple was pitted against each other and naturally, all hell broke loose. Their otherwise matured demeanour started to flounder when they came face-to-face with other over the cracks in their marriage. Dimpy cried, Rahul got teary-eyed, the audiences also got upset over this couple’s endless issues. Shockingly, their murky past and allegations of adultery also came out in the open. Phew!
Rajev Paul and Delnaz Irani
Once again, an ex-couple was part of the running for the big prize. The divorced couple were undergoing a rough, bitter patch in life when they participated in the reality series together. Their love-hate relationship gave TRPs a huge boost, as did Rajeev’s intimate ‘friendship’ with fellow contestant Sana Khan.
Apurva Agnihotri and Shilpa Saklani
With over a decade of marriage together, it’s natural to reach a dizzying level of comfort with your partner. That’s exactly what happened to this popular couple, who were each other’s rock support. Even though their relationship didn’t undergo anything drastic on the show, Apurva admitted to being ‘lost’ post his wifey dear’s eviction. The broken-hearted hubby followed suit by getting evicted shortly after Shilpa.
Another strong-willed couple, the two didn’t let anybody come in the way of their relationship. Even though Bhaktiyar was short-tempered on the show, Tanaaz acted as his support and saviour. She was evicted much early in the show, while he stuck around till the fag end.
