"Bigg Boss 8" contestants Gautam Gulati and Diandra Soares share a rocky, yet sweet relationship.

A great friendship followed by unending hatred, and finally some love. Gautam and Diandra's story would make for an interesting film.

The "Diya Aur Baati Hum" actor became an object of scorn after he abused fellow contestant Karishma Tanna. Although, he had his reasons but calling a woman names on national television wasn't anywhere close to being right. This episode made the friends part ways and Diandra stopped talking to him completely.

The 'Gautam City' task wherein the suave housemate was made the dictator who ruled the house for two days. During this time, the both bonded well and Diandra understood that he genuinely wanted to be her friend.

What followed was shocking for both the viewers and members of the house. On Gautam's 27th birthday, the supermodel dragged him to the bathroom for a gift. This triggered a major controversy and didn't go down well with actor's family members.

While brother Mohit Gulati reportedly said Diandra needs to keep a check on her doings as it might have an impact on her reputation, Mrs Anurag Gulati was quick to add that her son considers the said contestant to be just a good friend, adding that she doesn't approve of their relationship.

On her recent trip to the mad house as part of 'freeze release' task, Diandra made a cute move by talking to Gautam about how she felt about their equation. The two went out in the garden area for a quick date, during which she said she had apologised to his family members for their romantic escapades to the washroom.

Gautam, on the other hand, acknowledged her effort saying there was no need for her to say sorry, adding that misunderstandings cannot be avoided as its part of the show's format. She went on to say that she has apologised on his behalf as well saying they were juveniles for having gone on a kissing spree.

The actor, however, called Diandra's gestures sweet and the latter left him two letters in their favourite corner saying that she would want him to win the show as he was playing really well. Later, Gautam was heard telling Ajaz Khan that he respects her a lot and she will always be a special friend.
