Day 40 of "Bigg Boss 9" started with Bigg Boss announcing the captaincy task wherein Rochelle Rao, Prince Narula and Kishwer Merchantt had to compete against each other. Suyyash Rai was the supervisor of the task.

As per the rule of the task, all the three contenders had to hold a bowl of coloured water each for six long hours. They had to maintain constant hand contact with the bowl and not spill the water. The new captain would be decided based on which contender had more amount of water left in his/her bowl. While doing so, other housemates had to irritate the contenders to an extent that they quit the task.

Rishabh Sinha tried irritating Prince and Rochelle using chilli powder, shampoo and other stuff while Aman Verma tried to make them spill the water from the bowl.

Later, amidst the task, the housemates were amused to see fashionista Kawaljeet Singh entering the house as the third wild card contestant. Kawaljeet greeted the housemates with a warm smile.

As the task progressed, Mandana and Rochelle got into a cat fight when the former asked her not to pretend to be a nice and sweet girl as she had already shown her true colors when Mandana was in the secret room.

Later, Bigg Boss asked supervisor Suyyash as to name the contender whose performance was best in the captaincy task. Suyyash named his girlfriend Kishwer, who became the new captain of the house.

Prince, disappointed with Suyyash's decision, was seen expressing his feeling that he was being targeted by the couple.

By the end of the day, Bigg Boss announces that since Rimi's performance during the Shararati Bachen task was disappointing, the housemates will be deprived of the week's luxury budget. This irked the housemates, who performed the luxury budget task dedicatedly for two days.

The prelude of the next episode will see host Salman Khan welcoming Deepika Padukone on the show. Apparently, the actress will be on the show to promote her upcoming film "Tamasha".

Also, the weekend episode will see Deepika becoming the Bigg Boss and summoning the housemates to perform the task.
