Gautam Gulati might have an ever-expanding fan base outside the "Bigg Boss 8" house, but inside, he is nothing short of an easy target.

Ali Quli Mirza and Karishma Tanna were entrusted with the task of provoking Gautam and Pritam Singh, respectively. While the RJ was unmoved by KT's words, the singer managed to irk the "Diya Aur Baati Hum" actor by calling him 'fake'.

Maligning Gautam's reputation has been on top of Ali's priority list, and somewhere a shrewd strategy as well to eliminate the strong contender from the race. While this trick might come across as fair in Ali's book, the popular inmate has been on the receiving end far too many times.

While Mahek Chahal was seen pacifying him, Gautam vowed to not forgive Ali for his wrong-doings. Sambhavna Seth and Rahul Mahajan, who requested Ali not to poke him too much since he has been inside the cage for long, disappointed Gautam.

Evicted contestant Diandra Soares, who had a thing going on with GG, took to Twitter to support and also point out where he went wrong in accusing Sambhavna and Karishma. "Sambhavna n Tanna were there in support for GG, he clearly overreacted bout them not being there, guess exhaustion got the better of him....," she posted.

However, the supermodel was quick to acknowledge how strong Gautam is and that it was just another hard day for him adding that he'll be back in his element soon. Interestingly, after all the hatred, Ali has reportedly saved Gautam from nominations.

In other news, Mahek Chahal has been evicted in surprise mid-week elimination and there's a strong buzz on social media that Dimpy might be shown the doors this weekend.
