After 4 months of entertaining fans, Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 14 is coming to an end on February 21. The show, known for fights, romance and changing equations, remained in headlines for some ugly controversies. Like previous seasons, Bigg Boss 14 also had its share of controversies, ugly fights and major showdowns. Well, the show is known to be everyone's 'guilty pleasure’.
As the top five contestants- Rubina Dilaik, Aly Goni, Nikki Tamboli, Rahul Vaidya, and Rakhi Sawant are inching closer to the trophy, let’s flip through the controversial chapters of Bigg Boss 14.
Jaan Kumar Sanu vs Rahul Vaidya
Though Bigg Boss 14 had a slow start, the first big controversy was over Rahul Vaidya’s nepotism comment for Jaan Kumar Sanu. This was at the time when ‘nepotism’ wasn’t just a term. Rahul nominated Jaan citing the ‘n’ word as his reason. Not just fans, but host Salman bashed the singer.
This ‘nepotism’ controversy made Jaan’s life difficult later.
Jaan Kumar Sanu vs Marathi political party
Irked by Rahul Vaidya’s nepotism comment, Jaan Kumar Sanu refused to talk to him as well as Nikki Tamboli, who was once close to both. In the red zone, Nikki tried to calm Jaan down by talking to him in Marathi. Reacting to this, the budding singer claimed that he gets irritated if someone speaks in Marathi. Well, this did hurt the sentiments of a political party and the members threatened Jaan and issued a notice to the makers of Bigg Boss 14. He was made to apologise and promised that he will never hurt anyone, intentionally or unintentionally.

Jasmin Bhasin vs Rahul Vaidya
Much before Jasmin Bhasin called Rahul Vaidya her close and true friend, they had a major showdown weeks after the show started. During a task, Rahul pulled her after warning that she may get hurt. The Naagin 4 actress then went on to claim that he threatened her with physical violence and said no man can bully her with strength.
Jasmin wailed and also hit herself just before throwing water on her foe turned friend, Rahul. Salman Khan, on Weekend Ka Vaar, made Jasmin realise that she was wrong.
Abhinav Shukla vs Kavita Kaushik
Kavita Kaushik entered the house and Eijaz Khan was thrilled. However, his journey with Kavita didn’t go the way he expected. After ugly fights with Eijaz and Pavitra Punia, Kavita got irritated with Rubina Dilaik and said she’ll ‘see’ her outside after the show ends. She further claimed that she knows her husband Abhinav Shukla’s secret and told Rubina to stay away from her. When Kavita got a chance, she chose to just walk out.
Days later, Kavita’s husband Ronnit Biswas, on Twitter, claimed that Abhinav had alcohol issues and he would message the former during wee hours. Ronnit-Kavita and Abhinav-Rubina fought over this on a Weekend Ka Vaar episode and Salman Khan had to intervene to end the topic.
Vikas Gupta vs Arshi Khan
An entire spin-off series can be made on Vikas Gupta and Arshi Khan’s fights. The two entered Bigg Boss 14 as Challengers after a ‘mid-season finale’. Right from their first day in the house, Vikas and Arshi were at loggerheads. Arshi left no stone unturned to poke Vikas. After tolerating her for a few days, he got irritated and pushed her into the pool. Bigg Boss punished Vikas and asked him to exit.
However, he returned after a few days. But his tiff with Arshi didn’t end. Vikas claimed that Arshi has been blackmailing him and accused her of torturing him by teaming up with his mother.
Rakhi Sawant vs Rahul Mahajan
'Challengers' Rakhi Sawant and Rahul Mahajan entered Bigg Boss 14 house as best friends. However, their friendship turned sour soon when Rakhi, in her ghost Julie avatar during a task, ripped Rahul’s dhoti.
The housemates turned against Rakhi and demanded strict action against her. As a result, Rahul received maximum support and became the captain of the house.
Rakhi Sawant vs Abhinav Shukla
Rakhi’s ‘below the belt’ entertainment continued but the next in the row was Abhinav Shukla. The actress vowed to make Abhinav an interesting contestant and convinced him to be a part of her 'love-lapata' angle, just for fun. However, things went the other way when Rakhi came out of the bathroom with I Love Abhinav written all over her body in red.
Abhinav’s wife Rubina advised her to stop it. However, Rakhi didn’t pay heed. Abhinav also expressed disgust. Later, during a task, Rakhi ended up pulling Abhinav’s shorts’ strings. Rubina lost her calm when she got to know about Rakhi’s act. Over the weekend, Abhinav cried saying he can’t take Rakhi’s ‘cheap entertainment’ anymore.
Rubina Dilaik vs Rakhi Sawant
Even after being warned by Rubina and Abhinav to maintain distance from them, Rakhi refused to stop. One fine day, during a task, Rakhi went on to continually poke Abhinav. After passing comments on his relationship with Rubina and fight with Kavita, Rakhi called him ‘tharki’. This left Rubina and Abhinav disgusted. The Shakti actress lost her calm and threw a bucket of soapy water on Rakhi.
Salman Khan, on Weekend Ka Vaar, slammed Rakhi for her behaviour and told her if she can’t control herself, she is free to walk out of the show. Rakhi apologised and said she’ll never misbehave.
