Last ‘Weekend Ka Vaar’ of Bigg Boss season 16 saw Karan Johar creating a parallel between Shalin Bhanot-Tina Datta-Sumbul Touqeer and his film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai from 1997. He made Shalin Rahul, Tina was Tina and Sumbul Anjali. He even went on to say that, “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai mein end mein Rahul aur Anjali hi ek hote hain.” This makes Sumbul role her eyes and Tina blush. Shalin was enjoying the attention as usual.
Now, in one of the Extra Masala clips on Colors Tv’s OTT platform App, Voot, we see Shalin Bhanot sitting on a stool in the bathroom area, and looking straight into the camera, complimenting Karan Johar. He’s complementing Karan for his outstanding choice of films that he has made. He furthers that it’s songs from his movies that help boys like him in matters of love. He says, otherwise extremely good looking girls don’t even look at boys like him.
He further suggests that Karan Johar should make a sequel of Kuch Kuch Hota hai, where he should make Rahul and Tina ending a little Different. Listening to this, Tina Datta, his love interest inside the Bigg Boss house says, “Rahul and Anjali ek ho jayenge and Tina vacation pe jayegi.” This evokes a banter between the two.
While Shalin was also talking to the camera, Tina warned him of not talking all this, because it might be portrayed differently outside the house. She clarifies that they are just friends not even good friends.
A lot of people inside and outside the Bigg Boss house think Shalin and Tina are acting and are not genuine.
