The 11th season of Bigg Boss has been a tumultuous ride of emotions and drama, a lot of spice and a little bit sweetness that is what made Bigg Boss 11 more of a rollercoaster than a house. There were controversies brewing everywhere inside the house. From Shilpa Shinde and Vikas Gupta’s TV show controversy to Arshi Khan’s controversial past and her very erratic behavior to Akash Dadlani’s flip side to Puneesh Sharma and Bandgi Kalra’s love-story to Hina Khan’s very controversial statements about people inside as well as outside the house.
Somehow, we got to see the reality indeed of these faces throughout the season. With too many cameras to count following every movement of these contestants, we as audience as well got an experience we can’t ever forget.
The whole season started with 18 contestants, and now it is closing in with just four of them battling it out in the grand finale. Each and every one of them has earned a spot to have their own huge fan following. There have been several memories and relations created inside the Bigg Boss house, one of the most controversial but entertaining was that of Shilpa Shinde and Vikas Gupta.
Theirs was something that wasn’t all about love but wasn’t even all-out hate, it is just that both of these finalists hate each other’s guts to an extreme. Although they don’t particularly hate each other as individual per say, they share a unique sort of bond while also taking the time to go against each other at all times. However, it will always be remembered as one of the most iconic relations inside the Bigg Boss house not only in this season but in amidst every other. We have never really seen something so contradictory yet entertaining ever.
When the two most popular contestants Shilpa Shinde and Vikas Gupta entered the show, they were already seen spitting fire and taking digs at each other at all chances from the opening stage itself. Shilpa Shinde made her entry with the opinion of proving herself to the world by reflecting her real self in the house, and she very well succeeded. On the other hand, Vikas Gupta took the offer on a whim and to try something new for a change, from being behind the cameras he came in front of them as the mastermind. Although both of them were unknown to the fact that they will have to face each other 24/7 inside the house as well, as contestants.
The first five weeks Shilpa Shinde kept to her words, she definitely tortured and annoyed Vikas Gupta a lot, so much so that he attempted to run away from the Bigg Boss house at least twice or thrice. The mastermind came to being whenever the tasks were taken up, but otherwise, he was always running away from Shilpa Shinde and her craziness in making him suffer. Well, she did have all the reasons to do so, she never irritated anyone but him, after-all it was thanks to him that she was banned from the industry for a whole of two years. Shilpa Shinde did annoy Vikas but with a class of her own, she never stooped very low but kept it very entertaining for her fans and audience.
Her stance inside the house, her entertaining character, her humor, her kindness and caregiving attitude won her so many hearts that she broke records in being the most trending Bigg Boss contestant. It isn’t a surprising fact that when Shilpa Shinde and Vikas Gupta finally came to a mutual understanding and became cordial in nature to each other’s presence, the fans outside went crazy over their ‘khatee-mithi nok-jhok’, they gave them both a ship name #shikas, in the honor of their new-found friendship.
Shikas started trending as usual with a lot of fervour as fans loved their interactions with each other. The harmless flirting from Vikas Gupta towards Shilpa Shinde and her beauty or her ‘dangerous’ yet ‘tremendous acting skills’, Vikas Gupta was never out of words and praises for the reason of his fanboyism. He really proved to be quite the mastermind as well as a fanboy of Shilpa Shinde.
Although the fans outside definitely have a very different outlook as they love watching the two of them together, there are so many fanmade videos of them together. Even show host Salman Khan would joke about them being a typical married couple on the show.
They might not be the best of friends but they’re in a good, cordial relationship with each other. Professional in some sense as well, not to forget that Vikas Gupta has already promised on national television that he will definitely bring back Shilpa Shinde to the TV.
There is no surprise to the fact that the first five week’s of the show was absolutely hand’s down ruled by these two and their equation with each other. Even now, we can see them indulging in some or other arguments in-between, but we also see them finally getting resolved.
In the last two episodes as well, we saw how in the Vikas city task, Shilpa Shinde had to obey Vikas Gupta’s orders and make ‘basundi’ or feed him or wear sarees for him. It was definitely quite endearing and hilarious but also very adorable to see Vikas Gupta flirting yet again with Shilpa Shinde.
It isn’t about love or hate, it is a certain vibe and a unique charm that only these two share inside the house with each other that makes us all go crazy over them both. Shikas definitely has very different sides but it is just that fact which makes them look real and more relatable! No wonder that these two are amidst the top four contestants, ready to battle it out for the grand finale of Bigg Boss season 11.
