As the curtains draw close on Bigg Boss 17, marking the imminent conclusion of the show next week on January 28, a sudden and unforeseen turn of events unfolded just prior to the grand finale.
In a shocking twist orchestrated by Bigg Boss, Isha Malviya, widely recognized as one of the most formidable contenders, was unceremoniously eliminated from the competition. The announcement by Salman Khan caught both the participants and Isha off guard, leaving everyone in disbelief. Salman Khan commended the actress for her strategic gameplay and invited her to share her sentiments before bidding farewell to the Bigg Boss house. Expressing gratitude to everyone, including the host for his guidance throughout the game, Isha bid adieu. Salman Khan extended his best wishes for her success in future endeavors.
Following Salman's departure, and as Isha initiated her farewell, Ankita Lokhande and Abhishek Kumar found themselves overwhelmed with emotion, succumbing to tears that they couldn't restrain. Vicky Jain, having a strong emotional connection with the actress, also became visibly moved. Abhishek, grappling with his emotions, adamantly refused to bid Isha farewell. The actress, known for her role in Udaariyaan, sarcastically remarked on Abhishek's earlier prediction of her elimination, questioning why he was now hesitating to let her go. With a wry smile, she quipped, "You were the one who suggested, 'Come on, leave, I'll escort you all the way to the end of the tunnel.' What happened now?"
In a heartfelt moment, Abhishek extended his sincere apologies to Isha, shedding tears that seemed impossible to console. Munawar Faruqui stepped in, attempting to soothe Abhishek's emotional turmoil by suggesting that if he felt so remorseful, he could consider asking Bigg Boss to eliminate him instead of Isha. Despite the consolation attempt, Abhishek continued to pour out his emotions, expressing remorse and repeatedly apologizing. Meanwhile, Isha, still reeling from the shock of her abrupt elimination, conveyed the profound hurt she felt at having to leave the show so close to the finale.
Sharing a poignant moment, Ankita embraced Isha tightly, tears streaming down her face, as they exchanged promises to meet beyond the confines of the show. Abhishek, seeking solace in a corner, expressed his inner turmoil, questioning why he always found himself in such emotionally challenging situations. Frustration set in when Munawar Faruqui attempted to offer words of comfort, leading Abhishek to retort, "Why does this always happen to me? Why do I feel so hurt?" He directed his anger towards Munawar. Amidst this emotional scene, Ankita poured out her feelings, enveloping Isha in hugs and kisses, shedding tears as she bid a heartfelt farewell.
Following Isha's elimination, Abhishek engaged in a conversation with Munawar and Mannara, expressing concern about the repercussions Isha might face from her strict mother. According to Abhishek, Isha's mother would likely be furious with her for jeopardizing her game due to Samarth's influence. He emphasized the significance of Bigg Boss as a crucial platform for Isha's career.
In a separate instance, as Vicky, Ankita, and Abhishek stored Isha's personal belongings in the designated area after her eviction, Ankita decided to keep Isha's hairband as a memento. After Ankita left the room, Abhishek discreetly took one of Isha's personal items and concealed it in his pocket.
