I feel, Bigg Boss gets the highest billing among reality shows not because Salman Khan hosts it. It gets top billing because it has been customised to bring out the best and worst of human emotions. Because it plays on fear and love… more importantly, on fear… which is a stronger emotion than love.
International chess master Dhyani Dave is being flattered on social media for analyzing the developments in Bigg Boss just like a game of chess. Whatever she says about BB10, seems to be falling in place.
After Dhyani correctly predicted that contestants Karan Mehra and Lokesh Kumari would be eliminated in the double eviction on the show, her friends and fans were coaxing her to calculate more and more of the Boss’ moves.
A few days ago, she told the media that Bigg Boss needs to prop up its TRP by recalling the thunderous Priyanka Jagga back on the show and getting her “tickled to death.”
Some thought she was just speculating, but they got a shock when a day later, news about Jagga re-entering Bigg Boss started doing the rounds. And now the attention guzzler of the season is actually back on the show with a bang.
“I don’t find decoding Bigg Boss such a big deal,” quips Dhyani, who once played chess simultaneously with 150 contestants. “I take a four-pronged approach. I try to decipher the game from a practical viewpoint, business perspective, drama quotient, as well as a human psyche standpoint,” she reveals.
Given her expertise in the mind-game of chess, we can understand that. But what we are wondering about is, whether anyone currently on the show, does have the guts to “tickle” Priyanka Jagga in the first place! Unless the seemingly bold Dhyani herself agrees to do the needful!! Lol.
Dhyani Dave is no ordinary girl. She is a 25-year-old international chess master from Gujarat who’s had lunch with President Pranab Mukherjee for being voted as one of the 100 top women achievers of India in 2016. She features in the Limca Book of Records for competing simultaneously with 150 chess players. She’s been felicitated by Prime Minister Narendra Modiwhen he was the Chief Minister of Gujarat, and has had the privilege to play chess with Bollywood’s most intelligent megastar Aamir Khan a couple of times.
We are not sure if the other megastar Salman Khan would take kindly to this; but Dhyani also loves to dissect India’s most popular reality show Bigg Bosslike nobody’s business. And just like a great game of chess, she watches the show every night and schemes, plots and plans moves for the contestants, hoping they would somehow (through some magical fate) be able to follow her mind.
“Sadly, they seldom do,” Dhyani laments as she laughs. “They prefer to shout and scream, more than manipulate with their minds,” adds the wiz of chessboard mind games. So going by the low-TRP reports this season, what’s the one thing that Dhyani (or rather her mind) feels, should be incorporated in Bigg Boss 10 to prop up the programme without delay.
“Oh Simple,” exclaims Dhyani. “BB10 had an annoying over-loud woman, whose voice sometimes failed to come out properly. Her name was Priyanka Jagga. Get her back on the show and tickle-torture her to death.” LOL. ‘Tickle-torture!’ ROTFL. Now that’s some checkmate plan. But we wonder who will accept the responsibility to execute it :p
“And yes, Jagga needs to spend some quality time with VJ Bani and learn English,” chuckles Dhyani. Gee! ‘Quality time.’ ‘QUALITY time’ and Priyanka Jagga! This Dave girl sure has a great sense of humour which could turn BB into DiDi’s Comedy Show…. or shall we say, ‘tickling’ comedy show 😉
India’s international chess master Dhyani Dave’s predictions about Bigg Boss 10 contestants Karan Mehra and Lokesh Kumari’s eviction have surprisingly come true.
She had analyzed that Karan and Lokesh would be eliminated, while Rahul Dev and Monalisa will remain in the Bigg Boss house. And that is exactly what megastar host Salman Khan announced on the reality show in the weekend episode.
Dhyani who is popularly known as ‘the calculation queen of the chessboard’ believes that Bigg Boss is a mind-game. “Once you grasp the moves in chess, you grasp the game. It’s the same with Bigg Boss,” she remarks.
The Ahmedabad-based girl is a Limca Book of Records holder for playing chess simultaneously with 150 contestants, and has also been awarded and felicitated by none other than prime minister Narendra Modi (when he was the CM of Gujarat) and president Pranab Mukherjee this year. Her other feats include beating megastar Aamir Khan to a game of chess at the age of six.
India’s international chess master Dhyani Dave is also a master at dissecting Bigg Boss. “BB is just like a game of chess. It’s a mind game, and all the duh’s lose the fastest,” she winks.
The calculation queen of the chess board analyses this week’s nominations and predicts that Rahul Dev, inspite of “being thanda” will stay on, and so will Monalisa. “It’s going to be Karan Mehra and Lokesh Kumari who will be eliminated in the double eviction.” But how can Dhyani say for sure?
“Karan has been like a tree or a sofa in BB. He’s been like one of those sheep, who doesn’t take a stand… neither for himself or for others. People won’t vote for him,” says Dhyani. She feels it’s also time for the television actor to go home! “His wife’s birthday is coming up, he should be home,” she grins.
But Lokesh Kumari and her weird way of talking has been interesting. People have even expected her to be in the finale. “Haan, par dimaag nahin hai. She is a perfect mand-buddhi (mindless), and people have realized, she is not a player,” says Dhyani standing by her predictions and pointing out that “the novelty of Lokesh’s accent is over and done with”.
Let’s see if Dhyani’s predictions come true when Salman Khan walks in this weekend. And by the way, did we tell you that this is the same Dhyani who beat Aamir Khan at a game of chess at the age of six. He played the game with her later too. But do we need to tell you who won the second time!!
Bigg Boss Season 2 contestant Rahul Mahajan, who re-entered the show as a Challenger as part of Bigg Boss Halla Bol, plans to help Gautam Gulati boost his zest factor on the show.
“Rahul and Gautam have been friends from before, and Rahul plans to help him feel more cheerful,” reveals his publicist Dale Bhagwagar. “Rahul told me, he felt Gautam was a bit low after Diandra left and he wants to pep him up.” With Puneet Issar out of the House this week, Gautam may welcome his old friend Rahul wholeheartedly.
Dale has also given Rahul loads of tips and ideas for Bigg Boss, including some for his equation with Gautam. “Rahul is a man on a mission to amuse, play and entertain. He is straight-forward and does not mince words. That is a quality which will stand him apart,” he points out.
The PR knows. After all, he is considered to be a specialist with many controversial Bigg Boss participants, having handled the media for names such as Rakhi Sawant, Kashmera Shah, Sherlyn Chopra, Pooja Misrra, Diana Hayden, Shamita Shetty, Vindu Dara Singh, Zulfi Syed, Salil Ankola, Anita Advani, Amar Upadhyay, Ashmit Patel, Season 8’s Aarya Babbar, Sonali Raut and even the re-entry Sambhavna Seth.
Apart from this, he has handled the publicity for BB8’s Upen Patel during the initial years of his career in Bollywood. He is also acquainted with inmates RJ Pritam Singh, and has interacted with Karishma Tanna, Ali Quli Mirza, Sambhavna Seth and Sana Khan before they entered the show.
For now, Rahul Mahajan has jumped the wall of the Bigg Boss House (something he was punished for during his first stint on the show). Only that, last time he had jumped it to escape; this time he has leaped to enter the House. What a way to enter. Lol. We are already amused.
Sonali Raut seems to be hitting all the right notes with her fans on the world wide web. Even as the diva wows in Bigg Boss, her fans seem to be on a different trip of scanning every bit of her past on the net.
After a topless pic showing her back in a photo shoot with Ranveer Singh caused quite a ruckus and debates on Twitter a fortnight ago, this week, a few of her bikini pics from the same shoot are making the rounds of social media.
“Fans are fans and if they are digging up stuff, it only shows that they are intrigued and interested in Sonali. That’s not a bad thing, neither are bikini pics. They are a gorgeous lot from a shoot she had done for Maxim India magazine,” says Sonali’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar.
Meanwhile, the Bollywood actress has come to be known as the only contestant in Bigg Boss Season 8 who is carrying on completely on her own steam. Neither has she forged a romantic liaison on the show, nor is she part of any camp.
Moreover, the gal has been part of maximum nominations for eviction earlier, and is now ‘permanently nominated’ by Bigg Boss; as part of a punishment for slapping a contestant. But Sonali has survived. As the publicist tweeted, “She is a fighter on cruise mode. She glides, where others flap.”
