Everyone who's been watching Bigg Boss 7 has an opinion about the Gauhar-Kushal story. Love them or hate them, but you can't ignore them. From being virtual strangers in week 1 to be being called lovebirds in week 3 to being almost inseparable in week 5, these two have had quite a journey. So is it all real, is it scripted for TRP or is it a little bit of both?
Let's first lay out all the information:
1. Gauhar was dating Nihar Pandya (deepika's ex, EX) for a while(few years) before BB7. They broke up before she got into the house. Gauhar's close friends cite religious differences as the reason for their split. Nihar wanted to live family life in the traditional Gujju way, while Gauhar wanted to continue practicing her religious beliefs. Considering they'd thought about having a family, getting married etc., their relationship sounds like a serious one.
2. Kushal's had pretty interesting history too. He dated some chick called Candy Brar (Vivek was seen taunting Kushal about it). Then he was with Elena, this Bulgarian model who he was with on a dance reality show. Now, although Kushal maintains that he's broken up with Elena, Elena's twitter says a very different story. She tweeted, "Dont take me wrong,been super busy and have problem understanding Hindi. No braking up, no drama, please, no bad words about him. Ok?" Her display picture on Twitter is of her, with her arm around Kushal, smiling sweetly.
3. Gauhar and Kushal's PDAing is pretty evident. 84 cameras remember!? Ousted contestant Vivek Mishra said in his interview that there was DEFINITELY something going on between these two (although he also said there's nothing between Armaan and Tanisha-- so can we really even trust him?). Vivek also said in an interview that Gauhar and Kushal were locked up in the restroom for a good 15 minutes. Now it's possible that he was just holding her hair back while she was throwing up (she was sick), but then why didn't Gauhar ask anyone else to accompany her? Did she take Kushal along because he's her best friend in the house? Or did they need some alone time after all the drama?
That brings us to the big question, are these two really in love or is this scripted? If Kushal has a girlfriend waiting for him, then isn't he lying to Gauhar about being single? Gauhar's just broken up with her long-term boyfriend, is she just playing along to get more screen time? Are they using the same old trick that sana-rajeev, rahul-payal, ashmit-veena, sky-pooja used to stay in the game? What do y'all think?
