Nikki Tamboli: Bigg Boss 14 is coming to an end today after a stint of four and a half months and over 25 contestants visiting the house this season.
The show initially started with new contestants and seniors and later saw the entry of a few wild cards and challengers to up the game in the house.
Bigg Boss and controversies are two inseparable words and thus the contestants are always involved in fights and face-offs with the fellow housemates or with the show's host. The current season too followed on the same line of the long-drawn path where either the contestants came under the ire of the public for their fights, face-offs, and in-task personality or their face-off with show host Salman Khan. BB 14's finalist Nikki Tamboli is one of those contestants who has collected enough controversies in her bucket.
Nikki Tamboli Bigg Boss 14: Here are five controversies that erupted around her
Nikki Tamboli's Mention of MeToo Movement
During one of the tasks and face-off between Nikki and Devoleena, Nikki Tamboli raised the MeToo allegations made by Devoleena Bhattacharya against Siddharth Shukla in the last season. What infuriated the housemates was Rubina Dilaik's silence over the issue. Arshi Khan and Vikas Gupta were the two housemates who came in support of Devoleena Bhattacharya. This issue got a lot of public attention due to the gravity of the MeToo movement.
Nikki Tamboli and Rakhi Sawant Face-Off
Rakhi Sawant and Nikki Tamboli are at loggerheads since the 'Duck task' and have stirred various controversies through their fights. During the 'Duck task' Rakhi abused Nikki for which the former even apologised later. In a recent episode, Nikki again got into the public ire for saying Rakhi's face is made of plastic. In the past too, Nikki has mocked Rakhi Sawant's plastic surgeries and for the same, she has been rebutted by Salman Khan during the Weekend Ka Vaar.
Nikki's Face-off With Sonali Phogat
After one of the Weekend Ka Vaar, Nikki kept her empty box of eateries near Sonali Phogat's bed after which Sonali created a scene and threw the box on Nikki's bed. This infuriated Nikki and other housemates as Sonali Phogat dragged on the issue. This issue again gained a lot of BB followers' attention as the matter was related to food. Kitchen and food are sensitive topics in the BB house and thus garner enough media attention.
Nikki's In-Task Personality Against Rahul Vaidya
In one of the tasks for nomination into the red zone during the first month of Bigg Boss 14, housemates had to convince each other for letting them keep the oxygen mask. One who had the oxygen mask was to get saved from the nominations. Nikki Tamboli and Rahul Vaidya were against each other in the game. The game turned ugly when Nikki Tamboli kept the oxygen mask in her pants. This move of hers made Rahul feel helpless. Not only this, even many believed that what Nikki did wasn't the right thing to do.
Nikki Reveals Her Kidnapping Story
In an immunity task where the housemates had to bring out one secret of theirs to get the Nagmani, Nikki revealed that during the start of her modelling career she was kidnapped and abducted. After the revelation, she was seen confiding in Kavita Kaushik whom she was very closed to before her eviction. Her story garnered people's sympathy and while few termed it as a fake one.
Bigg Boss 14 will have its finale on Sunday, Nikki Tamboli is up against Rakhi Sawant, Rahul Vaidya and Rubina Dilaik.
