Karishma plots against Gautam, Ali makes lecherous advances towards SonaliBigg Boss 8/ Facebook

Day 36 was a one with twists and turns.

Sonali Raut, who has been clamouring for Gautam Gulati's attention, expressed her fondness for Upen Patel. This sudden change of heart seemed to have happened when the "36 China Town" actor asked her what kind of a partner would she prefer?

However, from the kind of conversation Karishma Tanna, Diandra Soares and Patel had after Soni Singh's elimination, this forced liking toward Raut came across as planned. The trio was spotted discussing Puneet Issar's devious tendencies and how the P3G group (Praneet Bhatt, Pritam Singh, Issar and Gulati) has been spewing negativity, which is affecting personal equations within the house.

They decided on voting out at least one of them so that the group is broken and left dysfunctional, which might be too shrewd a strategy. Meanwhile, as expected, Singh, Gulati, Issar, Bhatt and Raut were nominated for this week's elimination. Minissha Lamba, surprisingly, was pushed into the danger zone along with the others.

Since the house can never give controversies a rest, Raut made a scene when Ali Quli Mirza jokingly ran his fingers under the sheets over her knees. Calling it indecent and unnecessary, she said that it was just not right to touch her in the most inappropriate way. While Mirza defended himself saying it was done in jest, the model-turned-actress was just not ready to listen to his explanations.

This outburst might be an offshoot of the talk Raut had with Gulati, in which she was warned about Mirza's lecherous advances toward her. Does this mean the romantic is scared of losing his girl or pushing her to take charge of the situation? Only time will tell.

However, according to the prelude, the confrontation is set to take a nasty turn as inmates voice their strong opinions.
