Her Journey So Far in Bigg Boss

When viewers were first introduced to the glamour-filled lady in the Grand Premiere of the show, she claimed herself to be an extroverted, cheerful and attractive personality who has broken the hearts of many. She was seen to be wearing a purple dress with matching shoes and performed on the song “Dilbar”. While she was the second contestant to be brought on the stage, she entertained Salman and Eijaz with her gregarious and talkative nature.
She had a blast in the first meeting with her seniors too when she was given the task of convincing Siddharth Shukla to marry her. She was successful in leaving a strong impression on the seniors with her funny act and was granted entry into the house.
In the house, Tamboli has hogged the dislike of many people because of the bold way of standing by her words. Whether that is positive or negative is open to interpretation but the crux of the matter is that she is coming out as a strong persona compared to the other participants who are still getting acquainted with the environment.
She has been fighting for her things since day 1 and even if her wants seem unreasonable to others, she doesn’t shy away from what her heart is set on. She has also had conflicts with many of her co-contestants which, as many people believe is a tactful strategy, which aids to bring about your ‘true personality’ and also makes the show exciting.
An unusual feature this season is the presence of former contestants from previous seasons in the house, namely, Gauhar Khan, Siddharth Shukla and Hina Khan. They are there for a period of 2 weeks to exercise a certain amount of authority over the participants, bringing a new kind of twist in this season.
Nikki Tamboli has managed to impress these experienced seniors by way of her exceptional performance in the tasks because of which she has been immune from the weekly evictions. Further, all the three seniors unanimously made the decision of making Tamboli the first “confirmed” contestant on the show because of her strong headedness and her ability to bring forth her opinion without fear. She has also acquired the power of decision-making along with her seniors.
Salman Khan has also praised her during his judgement sessions which happensover the weekend and made it clear that she deserves all of the accolades she is receiving. He made an example of her while criticisig other contestants due to lack of visibility.
The fact that this South Indian actress who has not really been a part of the Hindi television scene and who has aroused the interest of many while sharing the screen with many mainstream actors like Rubina Dialik, Jasmin Bhasin and Eijaz Khan says a lot about her.
It will be seen in the following weeks if there arises a suitable competitor for her in the house.
