Star Plus’ ‘Imlie’ fame Sumbul Touqeer is not really doing the wonders she was expected to do inside the Bigg Boss house. Apparently, she’s even the highest paid contestant of Bigg Boss this season. She’s earning a whooping more than 12 lakh rupees every week that she spends in the house. By that mathematics, she’s really not justifying her pay cheques by the way she’s after Shalin Bhanot, even after putting all the spotlight on her in the second week’s ‘Weekend Ka Vaar’ when her father had specially come on set with Salman Khan to tell her what all Shalin Bhanot and Tina Datta have been doing with her and how she’s being used and played by.
In the beginning of the fourth week of Bigg Boss season 16, which was followed by a ‘dhamakedaar Diwali’ weekend, extended for three days, we saw nominations happening inside the house. The activity area was converted into a haunted house of sorts, which was occupied by ‘Shaitani Shaktiyaan.’ Two pairs of contestants were called in by Bigg Boss one by one, using strategies best known to him. Each contestant from one of the pairs had to individually convince the other pair to not nominate them for the week.
Sumbul Touqeer was called in along with Gautam Singh Vig and both of them together had to decide Abdu Rozik and Priyanka Chahar Choudhary’s fate. Sumbul and Gautam Nominated Abdu. Now, in one of the clips from Bigg Boss 16 live feed shows Sumbul explaining her reasons for choosing Priyanka over Abdu. She can be seen saying, “jo cheez Abdu mein hai vo Priyanka mein nahi and jo Priyanka mein hai vo Abdu mein nahin.” When asked by Shalin who her bigger competition out of the two, she said, “of course Priyanka, but seriously maine yeh sochkar nominate nahin kiya.”
