The upcoming weekend episode of "Bigg Boss 9" hosted by Salman Khan will see hunk Pulkit Samrat appearing on the show to promote his upcoming film "Sanam Re".

While the episode will be aired on Saturday, some pictures from the shoot have surfaced online. Surprisingly, Pulkit appeared on the show sans his "Sanam Re" co-actress Yami Gautam. Instead, the actor was accompanied by director Divya Khosla Kumar.

With Yami's absence from Salman's show, one can't help but wonder if the pretty actress and Pulkit are trying to avoid each other, considering that the duo, who were in an alleged relationship, has parted ways.

Pulkit reportedly decided to maintain a distance from Yami as he felt that his closeness to the actress is tarnishing his image.

While Yami's decision to skip Salman's show remains a mystery, going by the pictures, it is evident that Salman, who is Pulkit's wife Shweta Rohira's rakhi brother, is not miffed with the young actor.

Of late, the trouble between Pulkit and his wife Shweta has been the talk of the town. While Shweta confirmed that Pulkit left her for his family, it was speculated that his proximity with Yami was the reason behind their marriage falling apart. 

However, Shweta recently opened up about Pulkit and his alleged relationship with Yami, saying that the "Vicky Donor" actress has had an eye for her husband, while Pulkit was never interested in Yami nor did he want to work with her.
