It is by now a well-observed pattern that host Salman Khan takes a special interest in certain contestants on reality show Bigg Boss. Elli Avram and Gauhar Khan are just two of the BB contestants who’ve benefited from being taken under Salman’s wing. And this season, it seems Iranian model-actress Mandana Karimi is the superstar’s newfound protégé.

“Every year, there is a stunning Bigg Boss contestant whom Salman favours, someone like an Elli Avram or Gauhar Khan. Salman’s bonding with a particular kind of Bigg Boss contestant is by now an established pattern on the show,” a source connected to the show points out.

And Mandana’s special status was evident when Salman tackled her opponents in the BB house, including Prince Narula. Prince allegedly invited the superstar’s displeasure because of his “rudeness” towards Mandana, our source claims.

“You want to continue doing reality shows Or you want to do something more You’ll find it very difficult to get work in the film industry,” Salman reportedly said to Prince.

Not just Prince, Puneet Vashist — another contestant who was somewhat vocal in his opposition to Mandana — was evicted from the house this weekend. He had been reprimanded by Salman for drawing attention to Mandana’s foreign nationality during one of their fights.
