Shalin tries to mend the differences between them, "Is ghar ki sabse badi taakat pata hai kaun hai, aap main aur Tina. Jab koi ungli udhata hai na to apno ke saath khada hua jata hai (Do you know who is the biggest strength of this house, you, me and Tina. When someone points a finger, one needs to stand with their own)."

Sumbul replies,"Aankh band karke maine aapka saath dia, mere ko kya mila, bezzati. Mujhe mat batao apno ke saath kab khade hona hai, main unke saath khadi rahti hu jo mere sath khade ho. Jo meri dhajjiya uda dein puri duniya ke samne, main unke saath khadi nahi rahungi kabhi" (I supported you blindly, what did I get, insult. Don't you tell me when to stand on my own. I stand with those who stand with me. Those who insult me in front of the world, I will never support them)."

Fans lauded the Imlie actress.

A fan mentioned, "First time sumbul ke liye taliya (claps for Sumbul for the first time)."

Another user wrote, "Sumbul you are fire good." One more said, "Hope she'll continue this attitude towards Shalin and Tina aunty."


The third one mentioned, "Yes please we need this toxic friendship to end. Great going."

Actor Kashmera Shah also tweeted, "My daughter #sumbul is good but someone else's daughter #TinaDutta is not. This involvement of family does not make sense as it goes against every essence of the show. The fact that you are isolated without any outside information is the beauty of the show."

A social media user wrote, "Whatever happened with #sumbul letting her talk to her father was extremely wrong on part of makers & his father defaming other contestants is shame."

Another user mentioned, "#SumbulTouqueerKhan father wudve earned respect if he'd reprimanded her n advised her 2 maintain her sanity. Right now this is what is has earned for himself n for his daughter.. What a shame.. #BB16 SHAME ON SUMBUL'S FATHER."

"I am sorry to say when a parent teaches wrong things to own child and say ill about other's children just to uplift own daughter, is a big disappointment and shameful. SHAME ON SUMBUL'S FATHER," said a user.

Tina Datta's mother and Shalin Bhanot came out in support of their kids. 

Shalin Bhanot's father said: "Is this the way people speak on national television? Making unjustified offensive comments on national television, against other participants is very, very cheap! And it's more shocking that these comments and abuses were not edited out and rather shown." He further said, "Sumbul is an adult, either you shouldn't have sent her on the show and if you have then no outside guidance should be allowed as per the format. This is unacceptable!"

In the video shared on Tina's Instagram handle her mother got emotional and broke down seeing Sumbul's father accusing her daugther Tina.
