Upen picks a fight with Gautam, viewers call it publicity stunt

Day 38 in the "Bigg Boss 8" house was that of fights and arguments.

Gautam Gulati, who is loved my most viewers, found himself in soup when confidant Praneet Bhatt lashed out at him for feeding negative information. Looks like of late, Bhatt can't keep his temper on leash.

Moving on to the phone-booth challenge, after Puneet Issar accomplished all of the tasks successfully, Sushant Divgikar stepped in, but couldn't finish it the way he would've wanted. Failing to convince contestants to shave off their heads clean, he was nominated for next week's elimination.

Meanwhile, Gulati hinting at Upen Patel said, his (Divgikar) best friend should shave off. Miffed with the comment, Patel overreacted. He warned him not to make such double standard statements and engaged in a bitter fight. So, was this outburst a genuine one or does Patel feel his thunder has been stolen?

Viewers think since the "Diya Aur Baat Hum" actor has been receiving positive feedback for his performance on the show, the contestants are side-lining him on purpose. Interestingly, Arya Babbar who fails to take a stand every time, joined Patel in accusing Gulati of inappropriate behaviour. Well, looks like everyone is putting their best foot forward to stand out and gain the viewers' appreciation.

The day ended with Minissha Lamba's unruly behaviour with Bhatt, which obviously led to a fight.

However, here's what Twitteratis have to say about the Upen-Gautam fight:
