As the competition hots up on Bigg Boss 12, we now have the wild card entries of former contestants Vikas Gupta and Shilpa Shinde. The two former friends carried on their feud from Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai onto Bigg Boss 11 last year and tried to bury the hatchet eventually. Shilpa Shinde went on to win Bigg Boss 11.

And now, as the two are locked up inside the Bigg Boss 12 house, upon special invitation, there will be more fights and fun. Bigg Boss 12 is already gearing up for Diwali 2018. On Day 44, October 30, 2018 Episode of Bigg Boss 12, there will be a Diwali Rangoli task for the contestants called the BB Gaon Ki Rangoli Pratiyogita.

The Bigg Boss 12 contestants will be divided into two groups. One group will be the Gupta Pariwar and the other, the Shinde Pariwar. So, there is a clear indication by Bigg Boss that he wants Shilpa Shinde and Vikas Gupta to fight it out this time, too, on the reality show. The two warring teams will be expected to draw nice rangoli designs and at the same time make sure that the other team is not able to complete the task properly. It's gonna be a big rangoli war out there!

The Gupta Pariwaar will consist of Karanvir Bohra, Srishty Rode, Dipika Kakar, Shivashish, Megha Dhade and Jasleen Matharu, while the Shinde Pariwaar will have Romil, Somi, Surbhi, Deepak, Urvashi and Sreesanth.

As a part of the BB Gaon Ki Rangoli Pratiyogita task, after each song that sounds like a firecracker, the contestant from each team has to run to the storeroom to collect the rangoli items and hand it over to the team member making the rangoli design. Vikas and Shilpa are the sanchalaks of this task.
