Staying in a place for three months without any interaction with the outside world is definitely a tough task that the contestants have always taken up in the reality show, Bigg Boss. However, we have seen that in previous seasons, contestants used to take a stand against what’s wrong and, if not always then at least a lot of their arguments made sense. But in Bigg Boss season 10, which is running in its fourth week, we have often seen people standing up against each other for petty issues. If ever these issues become a major one- leading to passing comments on each other’s cast or religion or calling the other with inappropriate names, no one stands up for what’s right.
We have often heard the phrases – ‘play like a man’, ‘don’t be a p****’ but in this house, we see women not caring about their image and being open about themselves but the men are still hiding behind the veil of their popularity or if we may call it their ego. We would especially like to mention Gaurav Chopra and Rahul Dev. Gaurav Chopra has always been a strong contender or at least has that kind of air around him. But having said that, it is upsetting for us to see that such a big star of television world and he has nothing to say at all against all the wrongdoings in the house. Somehow, he chose to remain quiet on bigger issues that can stir up controversies.

When Salman Khan revealed the truth of Swami Om in front of the house through a video full of misogynistic comments and absurd words against women, Manoj Punjabi and Manveer Gurjar- the commoners- stood against him. Even Lopamudra Raut protested Swami Om’s words against Mona Lisa but Gaurav dismissed the matter as if nothing had happened. He clearly stated, “You’ve said things but I won’t comment on what’s wrong, what’s right.” So, does that mean that just because he is a celeb and an image to keep up, he will never react to all that might create controversy?
Later on, in lockdown luxury task by Bigg Boss, Rohan Mehra raised his voice against Mona Lisa and when Manveer came to her rescue, a huge fight erupted between the two and Rohan commented on the latter’s community. And who reacted? Nobody. Gaurav kept looking into oblivion but didn’t even cared to leave his seat.
Karan Mehra and Rahul, whose existences do not matter to the audience anymore, tried to brush the matter under the carpet. Oh wait, we know the answer, he apparently is extremely well educated, which does not allow him to stoop to the level of commoners, at least that’s what he believes and told Salman Khan.
The show will go on for a couple of weeks and it may show a transformation in celebs by the end of the season hopefully. Meanwhile, let’s watch what happens next in this reality show.
