Bollywood PR specialist Dale Bhagwagar who has earlier handled the media for the maximum Bigg Boss contestants and is looking after the publicity for Aarya Babbar and Sonali Raut this season, feels that Puneet Issar is causing “too much emotional and physical ruckus” in Bigg Boss.
“Puneet Issar stands exposed by the evicted as well as current contestants. His image has been severely damaged with gen next,” feels the PR guru. “If he continues the way he has been on national television, I won’t be surprised if he is forced out of the show,” predicts Dale.
It can be recalled that in the initial days of Bigg Boss Season 8, we heard an enraged Puneet threaten to “kill” Gautam Gulati after an altercation. Gautam has been his best friend on the show. A few days ago, he violently kicked furniture in the garden area. He later apologized, as he regularly does.
Puneet called Karishma Tanna his daughter, but later badmouthed her. He even bad-mouthed Soni Singh, Deepshikha Nagpal and Minissha Lamba. This week he used his strength to lift Gautam and put him on the side during a task.
“Puneet Issar is undoubtedly a respected veteran and a fatherly figure on Bigg Boss, but bal ka prayog (use of strength) is forbidden on the show. If he continues to use his strength, he should be shown the door,” says Dale.
“If he is out, it will send a strong positive signal to other contestants not to say things like ‘I will kill you’ or use physical strength against others on the reality show,” concludes the publicist.
