Last night after Shalin Bhanot was scolded by Bigg Boss for his constant rant and demand for chicken, he was supported by his two closest buddies in the house — Tina Datta and Sumbul Touqeer Khan. Sumbul entered the room with Shalin and tried to laugh him away from the issue. Seconds later Tina entered the room and Sumbul, referring to her nomination, asked Tina, “iska khyaal rakhna mere jane ke baad.” To which, the ‘Uttaran’ actress responded to the ‘Imlie’ actress that, “Main akeli hi kaafi hu iska dhyaan rakhne ke liye.”
This was followed by Tina Datta hugging Shalin Bhanot and making it super awkward for the 18-year-old Sumbul, standing in front of them. After a few moments of intense hug, Shalin extended his hand to Sumbul, who then hugged him too. And what he audience sees the infamous trio: Sumbul-Shalin-Tina hugging each other during moments of chicken crisis in Shalin’s life.
This looked like the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai scene, where Rahul played by Shahrukh Khan, while hugging Anjali, played by Kajol, extends his hand to hold Tina’s, played by Rani Mukherjee, hand from behind. In the Bigg Boss 16 version of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, though, had Shalin hugging Tina while not ignoring Sumbul.
Shalin seems to have taken Karan Johar’s reference of his own directorial debut film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai for his love triangle inside the house, pretty seriously. Anyway, Shalin is mostly seen auditioning inside the house and is almost always accused of being fake and portraying to be someone else.
