Love’s a game on this show?
Even as this reality show is set to launch its new season, the audiences, by practice, are ready for another romance that will brew soon enough like instant coffee and then fizzle out immediately after the participants walk out of the Bigg Boss house.
Be it Gauahar Khan and Kushal Tandon, Tanishaa Mukerji and Armaan Kohli, Veena Malik and Ashmit Patel or Anupama Verma and Aryan Vaid — these couples met and fell in love on the show, but broke up soon after.
The couples who have broken up cite lack of compatibility as a reason. Thus, while announcing her breakup earlier this year, Gauahar wrote on Twitter, “Kushal n I rnt tgether anymore fr reasons best knwn 2us (sic).” Even Tanishaa, who seemed deeply in love with Armaan while on the show, cited a similar reason when she wrote, “Armaan and I are very different people with different ideologies and I wish him the best.”
Participants agree that it is the proximity to each other that has got a lot to do with people falling in love. “The emotional pressure that you go through on a show like this makes you very vulnerable and feelings come to the surface. This is why a lot of people start relationships in the house,” says Delnaaz Irani, a former participant.
Some insiders, however, say that participants often feign love. “On a show like this where your existence depends on votes, many people get together for TRPs so that the audiences can vote for them,” says yoga guru Vivek Mishra, also a past participant.
