Meanwhile, Shalin Bhanot and Sumbul Touqeer’s bonding has become the talk of the BB house. In the recent episode, Manya Singh said that Sumbul and Shalin are trying to impersonate Sidharth Shukla and Shehnaaz Gill by faking a romantic relationship.
She said, “Aapko kisi ka pallu, haath pakad ke aage jaane ki kya zarurat hai. Dum hai toh apne dum for aage badho na. Sabko yahan for Sidharth Shukla aur Shehnaaz banna hai. Par woh dono real the, unke emotions real the , woh dono ek dusre ke liye jaan dene ke liye bhi ready the. (You don’t need to go ahead by holding someone’s hand. If you have the courage, go ahead on your own. Everyone wants to be like Shehnaaz Gill and Sidharth Shukla, but they were real. His emotions were real).
He added: “They don’t understand that at the end of the day, only one person is going to win the show.”
Meanwhile, Tina Dutta asked Shalin in the last episode if there is something between him and Sumbul. Shalin was shocked and finally laughed. He told Tina that there was nothing between him and Sumbul because she is younger than him. Shalin replied, “Nahi yaar woh bacchi hai, ye kahan se aaya (she is a girl).”
Meanwhile, when Tina and Shalin were talking, Sumbul comes and Shalin gets uncomfortable. He tries to inform Sumbul of what he was thinking. At that moment, Sumbul took Shalin’s hand and placed it on her forehead, making the other two smile.
In the latest episode of BB 16, there was a reel task between MC Stan and Abdul. Sumbul and Shiv Thakare were appointed as their managers respectively. While MC Stan won the task and got a special bonus.
