Gautam Gulati Resembles Salman Khan, Says Diandra SoaresBigg Boss 8/ Facebook

Day 69 in the "Bigg Boss 8" house, as mentioned by host Salman Khan, was one with emotional highs and lows.

While Upen Patel got an opportunity to talk to his mother and cousins, Gautam Gulati and Diandra Soares' romance was approved by the superstar.

Ali Quli Mirza, who was at the receiving end for having made distasteful comments, gave his reasons for the outburst and said he was really apologetic for the language he used.

Sonali Raut, on the other hand, showed no signs of regret for having slapped Mirza. However, later she changed her statement adding it was an instant reaction and she had no intentions of smacking him.

Renee Dhyani and Karishma Tanna got into a tiff, while giving their sides of the 'App' task story. Tanna, who eventually picked her make-up draining the battery life, apparently told the current captain that, had she been a little quick in taking her decision to dye her hair, she could have met her mother.

This comment didn't go down well with the "MTV Roadies", who then opined no one was in the house to play emotionally, adding she would be upfront in her game going forward.

Saving Mirza and Patel from the danger zone, Salman left the audience guessing as to who would make an exit this week. Dhyani, Raut and Praneet Bhatt continue to live in fear.

The viewers, who have earlier expressed interest in Mirza's ouster, are clearly unhappy with his continued stay at the house. Here are some of the tweets:
