Here are 10 Bigg Boss rivalries that became the highlight of the season.

1. Shweta Tiwari & Dolly Bindra from Bigg Boss 4

Salman Khan’s first season of hosting Bigg Boss was season 4 of the reality show. The show witnessed popular celebrities like Shweta Tiwari, The Great Khali, Samir Soni, Sara Khan, and Manoj Tiwari, among others. While the show seemed to run fair and square, BB added fierce Dolly Bindra as a wild-card contestant. Dolly shared a not-so-good history with co-contestant Shweta, and their personal odds turned into the biggest rivalry of the season.

2. Urvashi Dholakia & Delnaaz Iraani from Bigg Boss 6

Delnaaz and Urvashi were friends for a long time before joining Bigg Boss 6. While the duo seemed to share a cordial bond in the initial episodes of the season, they drifted apart as the days progressed. These differences sprouted from misunderstanding and a lack of candid conversation. However, while speaking to News18, Delnaaz revealed that the two mended their differences when they came out of the show.


3. Gauhar Khan & Tanisha Mukherjee from Bigg Boss 7

The two finalists of BB7, Gauhar and Tanisha, had an air of animosity looming between them. Their coldness towards each other peaked during a task when Kushal and Tanisha had an ugly brawl, and Salman later reprimanded the former for his behaviour. Gauhar defended Kushal in front of Salman. Soon after, when Kushal was evicted from the show on the pretext of violent behaviour against another co-contestant, Andy, Gauhar took a bold decision to step out with him.
