Soniya Bansal Voted Out of 'Bigg Boss 17' in First Elimination
The shocker came when Salman Khan unveiled the results of the public vote, revealing Sana and Soniya as the bottom two contestants.
In a dramatic turn of events, Soniya Bansal, the actress who joined 'Bigg Boss' season 17, was the first contestant to be evicted from the house. She expressed a strong desire to return as a wildcard entrant, citing unfinished business and a burning desire to continue her journey. 'Weekend Ka Vaar,' the episode of 'Bigg Boss,' was a rollercoaster of emotions, brimming with intense drama and suspense.
Salman Khan, the iconic host of the show, revisited the fiery conflicts that had unfolded among the housemates, with the threat of eviction looming. Nominated contestants Sunny Arya, Soniya, Aishwarya Sharma, Neil Bhatt, and Sana Raees Khan all prepared to bid farewell to the iconic house.
The shocker came when Salman Khan unveiled the results of the public vote, revealing Sana and Soniya as the bottom two contestants. Their fate was left in the hands of their fellow housemates, who had to decide who would stay in the master's mohalla and who would be the first to make an early exit. Regrettably for Soniya, insufficient support from her housemates sealed her fate, marking her as the first casualty of the season, and leaving her feeling let down by her supposed friends.
During her two-week stint on the show, Soniya delighted the audience with her dance performances and captivating presence. She forged connections with fellow contestants like Firoza Khan (Khanzaadi), Aishwarya Sharma, Neil, Ankita Lokhande, Vicky Jain, Isha Malviya, and Abhishek Pandey.
In response to her eviction, Soniya expressed her disappointment, saying, "I believe my eviction was unjust. I am determined to return as a wildcard contestant and continue playing the game because there are many unfinished chapters, and I am genuinely disheartened."
Soniya's journey on the show was marked by conflicts, including a recent falling-out with Sana after supporting Abhishek Pandey, resulting in heated confrontations. There were also occasional tense moments with Mannara Chopra, marked by passive-aggressive exchanges.
Regarding Mannara's behavior as a contestant, Soniya shared, "She tends to befriend people and then speak ill of them and misbehave. I believe it's all part of her strategy to gain attention. Mannara often mentions in interviews that she is Priyanka Chopra's sister, using this as a means to gain popularity."
Soniya had formed a connection with the couple Ankita and Vicky, and she addressed the rumors surrounding their relationship. She clarified, "I wasn't particularly close to Vicky, but I had a better rapport with Ankita. Their personal life is fine, with minor misunderstandings arising due to time constraints. Vicky's attention to others sometimes impacts his ability to give Ankita the time she deserves."
Soniya is now eagerly awaiting the release of her upcoming movie. Her departure from the show left the other housemates concerned about who would take over the kitchen. 'Bigg Boss' airs on Colors and JioCinema.
