  • VJ Bani, Gaurav Chopra, Rahul Dev were punished for speaking English
  • 'Bigg Boss should forbid people from profanity,' read a tweet
  • 'What comedy is going in name of task,' tweeted another
New Delhi: Talking, walking, laughing English will do nobody any good in the Bigg Boss house because Bigg Boss utterly, utterly frowns on angrezi-speaking and just punished three contestants for breaking this rule.

Day 18 ended with VJ Bani, Gaurav Chopra and Rahul Dev being handed a task that kept them up all night for speaking in English. As per usual, it ended in drama and tears (Bani's) and today, a day later, Twitter has much to say about this linguistic recalcitrance.

A lone user suggests that it wasn't English that offends but the foul language used:

Bani, who appears to be fairly unpopular, has been singled out for scorn:

But not everyone is against her:

Bani's misdemeanours aren't the only topic of discussion online. Two other contestants - Lopamudra Raut and Mona Lisa - went for a swim in the pool which, apparently, stopped both the Bigg Boss house as well as Twitter in its tracks.

Among some tweets from those easily shocked was this person outraging over Swami Omji's gawking at the two swimsuit-clad women:

At least someone other than us is outraged.

Bigg Boss, the Indian version of the international reality show, is now in its tenth season and is hosted by actor Salman Khan. This is the first year that non-celebrity contestants are in the house.

Australian TV personality of Indian-origin Priya Malik told NDTV, "I feel that Bigg Boss in India is way more dramatized and is driven more towards entertainment." Priya has been on both Bigg Boss and Big Brother Australia and is rooting for VJ Bani.
