Bigg Boss 14's first official eviction came in with a twist this season where seniors had to make a collective decision on the weakest link in the house. Punjabi sensation Sara Gurpal was the first contestant to be evicted, what came out as a surprise was the claims she made in the interviews days following her exit from the show. A few publications quoted a headline where Sara put the blame on Sidharth Shukla for her eviction from the house; she went on record to say that the later ousted her as a part of his revenge.
In a video shared on Instagram, Sara says, “I just want to tell everyone that I returned with the same dignity that I entered Bigg Boss 14 with. The audience has given me a lot of love. After coming back, I have been looking at everything and I am overwhelmed.” She blamed ‘one person’ for her eviction hinting at ‘Toofani Senior’ Sidharth and said that the audience disagreed with his decision of evicting her. She added that the other two seniors, actors Hina Khan and Gauahar Khan, were not in favour of her leaving.
I'm taking this chance to thank my audience from the core of my heart. Its only with your love and support that I'm here at this stage of my life. However, I would’ve been happy if this decision was brought in place by you guys. But life’s pretty unfair and you gotta deal with it. Thanks again for everything @vootselect @colorstv #BiggBoss #BiggBoss14 #BiggBoss2020 #BiggBoss #SalmanKhan #Voot #ColorsTv #SaraGurpal #Colors
However, her allegations did not go down with the fans of Sidharth and the show and Twitterati went ballistic refuting Sara’s claims. Sidharth has been pally and goofy with all the freshers this year to make them feel comfortable in the house, a different side of the actor that we didn't witness last season. Check out some of the tweets below:
Say sorry @SGurpal

Just saw #SaraGurpal ‘ s interview speaking ill about #SidharthShukla . Suno soch tumhari gandi hain. Tumne pehle din se attention mangi thi Jija and all bolke. #SidharthShukla was uncomfortable still he didn’t react. Defamation case should be filed against you. Sick mentality

Stop giving attention to irrelevant newspaper articles !!
It's just a PR Gimmick to defame & stir a controversy around to be the talk of the town !
Ignorance is a bliss
Please be blissful

Sidharth is so clear in his thoughts.. He rarely tAakes any rash decision in heat of the moment..
He always analyse the situation , reads it and try to make the most out of it..
He never backs down from the difficult
SIDHARTH AWESOME SHUKLA#PertinaciousSidShukla

For the unversed, Bigg Boss entrusted the seniors-Sidharth, Hina and Gauahar to unanimously make a decision to eliminate a contestant. While Gauahar and Hina were confused between Rahul Vaidya and Nishant, Sara also cut out for the list. However, Sidharth reasoned with his fellow peers and they decided to go together with Sara's name instead as the other two had potential to be explored on the show. In hindsight, Rahul and Nishant went on to become few of the most entertaining contestants on the show during their last immunity task.
