From Kamya Punjabi, Kishwer Merchant expressing their happiness to Vishal Kotian and VJ Andy calling out makers' decision: Former contestants react to Abhishek Kumar's return in Bigg Boss 17.
Bigg Boss 17's last few episodes have been full of dramatic twists and turns. The most discussed incident of the week was Isha Maviya and boyfriend Samarth Jurel poking at her ex- Abhishek Kumar's mental health conditions. Captain Ankita Lokhande was given the power to decide the fate of Abhishek on the show as he broke the most important rule of the house of raising hands on someone and she decided to eliminate him.
In an interesting twist, Salman Khan brought back Abhishek inside the house and justified him slapping Samarth. He also called Abhishek slapping Samarth a heroic move and mentioned that the former was pushed to do physical violence due to the constant poking. Now, former Bigg Boss contestants have reacted to Abhishek's return to the show. While contestants like Kishwer Merchant and Kamya Punjabi have hailed makers and Salman Khan's decision, others have called them out.
During the fight, while Abhishek triggered Isha Maviya by character assassinating her, Isha and Samarth kept poking Abhishek by calling him 'Apne baap ka mental beta'. They also triggered him by talking about how he was seeking mental health therapy in Chandigarh and after a point, the fight got out of hand and Abhishek slapped Samarth. Salman Khan asked the housemates who all wanted Abhishek back on the show and while the majority voted against him, Ankita Lokhande, Munawar Faruqui and Ayesha Khan raised their hands in favour. Kamya took to twitter also known as X and shared that Abhishek had come on the show at any cost. She wrote, "Arre agar koi bhi haath raise nahi karta tab bhi Abhishek waapas aata �� koi bata doh inn gharwalon ko #BB17 @ColorsTV."
