The second week of television reality show "Bigg Boss" season 7 saw the exit of contestant Rajat Rawail who had been facing health problems during his stay at the house. 

The actor-cum-producer had stirred quite a commotion this week after he complained about feeling ill. Even doctors were called upon to check on him. He was eventually voted out on Saturday. 

"I am happy with my eviction as I was missing my daughter and wife. I am the only contestant in the house who has a kid. I entered the show with a mission to make everyone laugh and get a good physique but due to my bad health I was unable to give my best on the show," the actor told PTI.

Speaking on the format of this season's show, he said, "I feel the format of the show is tough this time. Even the tasks are tough and it's really impossible for a person like me to be a part of the show."

Rawail, who came on board in good spirits, seemed to have changed when the show entered the second week. He grew homesick and on one occasion demanded to see his little daughter.

Besides the elimination, Saturday's episode was all the more interesting with contestant Kaushal being granted his wish for a date with another contestant, Gauhar Khan. The episode also witnessed altercations between Kamya Panjabi and Gauhar again. The show's host, Salman Khan, was at his entertaining best when he pulled the leg of new contestant, model Asif Azim. He also teased actress-model Elli Eviram by comparing her to Katrina Kaif given her inablity to speak fluent Hindi.   

Even the house captain, Tanisha, was made to sweep the floor on Salman's insistence. The actress, all dressed up and with a broom, was a sight to behold.

Rawail is the second contestant to be evicted after last week's elimination of actress Hazel Keech. Interestingly, both Rawail and Hazel had worked together with Salman in his blockbuuster film "Bodygaurd" (2011).
