ColorsTV aired a promo video for the upcoming weekend episode of Bigg Boss 16 on Saturday. In the video, Karan Johar, who was standing in for host Salman Khan, chastised Archana Gautam for exceeding her limits during a Bigg Boss task. This week, during the prize money task, Archana went below the belt and threw turmeric and detergent powder in the eyes of the competing members—Shiv Thakare, Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia, and MC Stan. When Archana tried to defend herself, he thrashed her for her behaviour in the task. Karan described her behaviour as “disgusting,” for which she cannot be forgiven. Many fans responded to the promotional video.
ColorsTv tweeted the promo, writing, “#ShanivaarKaVaar mein Karan Johar ne li Archana ki class (In Saturday’s episode, Karan Johar will be seen pulling up Archana Gautam).”
Archana began the promo video by throwing turmeric powder into the eyes of Shiv, Nimrit, and Stan to provide context for the viewers. “Arey bhaiya haldi thi (It was just turmeric powder),” Archana explained. “One minute, I’m talking,” Karan said. She made an odd expression. “Aap apni personal feelings waha nikaal rahe ho woh kis hadd tak sahi hai (You are bringing out your personal grudges in the task, to what extent is it correct)?” Karan continued. “Sir maine kuch personal nhi kiya (I did not go personal),” Archana defended herself.
“Archana aapke chehre pe jo khoonas thi, woh maine khud dekha hai,” a furious Karan responded, “I saw the feelings of anger and vengeance on your face.” “Sir, maine uske liye maafi bhi maangi (Sir, I apologise for my act),” she said. “Maafi maangne se jo cheez galat hai woh sahi nhi ho jaati,” he said, raising his tone. Jo kal hua it was disgusting (You can’t get away from everything by apologising; whatever you did wrong can’t be undone now, and whatever happened yesterday was disgusting).”
One viewer commented on the video, “Arcchana ke haath mai hota toh murder kar deti (Archana would have killed someone).” “Archana kissi din kisi ko jaan se maar degi fir bolegi sorry galti se hogya hai, hadd hai” (Archana can take someone’s life and end up saying’sorry,’ too much to bear). Someone else said, “Thodi toh insaaniyat rakho Archana” (Show some humanity, Archana). “Archana used turmeric, which is really good for skin and far better than what chemicals #Mandali used the day before,” a fan wrote in support of Archana.
Bigg Boss 16 airs on ColorsTV Monday through Friday at 10 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday at 9 p.m. The show, hosted by actor Salman Khan, is nearing the end of its run.
