Bigg Boss 13: Tehseen Poonawalla gets evicted
On Saturday, Salman Khan evicted Tehseen Poonawalla from Bigg Boss 13. The columnist and entrprenuer was nominated along with Shehnaaz Gill, Shefali Jariwala, Sidharth Shukla, Paras Chhabra, Arhaan Khan and Mahira Sharma.
Poonawalla is not new to fame as he is a popular face on news channels. Tehseen is married to Monica Vadera, cousin of Robert Vadra, Priyanka Gandhi’s husband. And so he is usually seen around the Congress family. The 38-year-old is a TedX speaker and a life coach. Labeled as a ‘youth icon’ and ‘shining star’ among his social media followers, Poonawalla was confident of winning the show, when he interacted with host Salman Khan last week on the Weekend Ka Vaar episode.
The political analyst had exclusively spoken to indianexpress.com before entering the show. He had shared, “I was just being honest. I am not a diplomatic person. It was not at all overconfidence. I know I will win the show.”
The public figure was also rumoured to be the highest-paid celeb in the season. Neither confirming nor denying the news, Poonawalla had told us, “I really don’t care about money. Honestly, it doesn’t even excite me. I am here only for the experience and I want to have a great time on the show.”
While Tehseen Poonawalla entered the show with confidence and excitement, he came across as a lost person in the Bigg Boss house. Initially, he did try to be friendly with everyone but did not manage to find any strong connection. Poonawalla, as rightly mentioned by host Salman Khan, was invisible through the episodes. His presence in the episodes was only felt when another wild card Hindustani Bhau poked fun at him.
However, after getting nominated, Poonawalla tried his best to be in limelight. He wholeheartedily participated in the task, supporting Paras Chhabra and his team. He also indulged in arguments with Asim Riaz and Sidharth Shukla. For the same, he faced the wrath of netizens, who accused him to pass insulting remarks to Asim.
After Tehseen Poonawalla’s exit, television actor Vishal Aditya Singh will enter Bigg Boss 13 as a wild card.
