It is definitely not easy to survive in the Bigg Boss OTThouse, and wildcard entry Aashika Bhatia is learning this the hard way. Even though the actress got fellow contestant Pooja Bhatt's support, she was actively targeted by the remaining housemates. In a recent episode, fellow contestants criticised and targeted Aashika for her perceived lack of participation, and even labelled her as “zero” and “inactive”. Following the harsh comments, Aashika couldn't control her tears and ended up having an emotional breakdown. Coming to her defence, Pooja Bhatt urged the housemates to show compassion towards Aashika. She even reminded them of the toll such criticism can take on an individual's well-being.
"Let's show some humanity. Aashika is already struggling with the harshness of the situation. I suggest we refrain from targeting her in the Bigg Boss verse," Pooja empathised. Pooja Bhatt also motivated Aashika to stay strong amid all the criticism. She said, “You need to stay strong in this house. Not everyone will support you, especially when they're focused on playing the game and winning the show.”
Aashika was “deeply disturbed” by the comments of the housemates. While speaking to Pooja Bhatt, the actress stated that she cannot pretend to be someone she is not. "I am deeply disturbed by what transpired in the house today. Everyone seems to be targeting me, but I cannot pretend to be someone I'm not. If I become fake, I would be betraying my true self and my own values,” Aashika said.
Aashika Bhatia, along with YouTuber Elvish Yadav, entered the Bigg Boss OTT house as wild card contestants. They are the first two wild card entries of the ongoing season.
Meanwhile, during the Weekend Ka Vaar episode, actress Shriya Pilgaonkar came on the show to promote her upcoming film Ishq-E-Nadaan. The star paired up the housemates and gave them a paper dance task.
