With new friendships and rivalries cropping in the ‘Bigg Boss 16’ house with each passing day, Shalin Bhanot and Tina Datta are the two contestants who have stood by each other since the very first day.
There also seems to be love blossoming between the two. While Shalin has confessed that he likes Tina and even said “I love you” to her in a past episode, Tina has maintained that though she likes Shalin back, she does not want to get into a relationship inside the ‘Bigg Boss 16’ house.
In the latest episode, Shalin was seen expressing his dislike over Tina’s bond with MC Stan. He was heard telling the ‘Uttaran’ actress that she is a public figure and that she should not get too close to Stan as it might not look good to the outside world.
This did not go down well with Tina who retorted saying that one does not “character assassinate” a person if they like them. “There’s no vulgarity between us. Stan and I have a healthy relationship, he has a girlfriend outside,” Tina clarified.
She also called out Shalin for treating her like a kid and said that she feels he has “too much negativity” against her.
Later, the housemates celebrated Shalin and Sumbul Touqeer Khan’s birthday at midnight by throwing them in the swimming pool and wishing them a happy birthday.
When the lights went off, Shalin was seen sitting near Tina’s bed and discussing their equation. While he admitted that the two hardly know each other, he added that he does not want to lose her.
Tina was then heard telling him that both their lives are scarred, to which Shalin held her hand and replied, “We both are scarred, but here I am wanting to give our lives another take.”
He also promised to be by her side always and to not let her go away from him.
While romance has already bloomed between Gautam Vig and Soundarya Sharma in the ‘Bigg Boss 16’ house, it will be interesting to see if Shalin and Tina will follow their footsteps or will they play as competitors in the house.
