Love him, hate him, you can’t ignore him. Gautam Gulati is definitely the most popular contestant in Bigg Boss 8. His antics never fail to impress and if you ask fans, he’s already a winner. Also, remember when I told you about his Cannes outing? That was seriously impressive! It’s his birthday today and even though there’s another drama that’s going to happen tonight in the house, we hope he has a good day and gets to eat some fabulous cake.
As he turns a year older, we take a look at 5 times he was truly the star of Bigg Boss 8:
Gautam’s fight with Karishma Tanna was the first major one in the house and also gave us an opportunity to really understand him. Even though it started out with Gautam being the vilian because he abused Tanna on “national television”, after a point we got to see how Karishma just stretched the issue. Karishma’s refusal to accept Gautam’s apology and Gautam not losing his cool even after being shunned by most of the housemates gained him lots of sympathy, love and accolades from the audience!
Remember Karishma’s mad makeup issue when she proved just how made up she really is? Gautam sat there quietly and came out the hero (again!). Not only that, he actually wanted to save Sushant Divgikar from being a sevak even though they aren’t friends. Karishma, on the other hand, only cared about her makeup.
Way to go, Gautam!
It’s no secret that being a couple in the Bigg Boss house has always proved beneficial for the contestant. Sonali Raut was seen tryng to cash in on the couple card with Gautam. The two were seen flirting and spending a lot of time together. Sonali even went on to ask him where this is going and I thought it was very cool of Gautam to tell her straight up that he can’t make such a big decision when they’re surrounded by cameras and when they’ve only just met and that they should just be friends for now.
As part of the Gautam City task, he came up with this hilarious song. A tribute really to the original, if you ask me:
*underwears flying everywhere*
We wish the entertainer a very happy birthday!
