A few more days to go and we will again start waiting for the last quarter of next year (2019)! Every year, India’s most controversial reality show serves its audience with a high dosage of entertainment, masala, shocking revelations and truckloads of drama, and this year too, the scenario is no different. With some epic celebrities and commoners making each other’s life hell to win the trophy, Bigg Boss loyalists can’t contain their excitement!

Tell us something: Who is that one celebrity who exits every task as soon as it starts and makes repeated attempts asking Bigg Boss to open the doors so that he can leave? So Sreesanth, right? The former player of Indian cricket team is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining contestants in the Bigg Boss 12 house. With frequent emotional outbursts, heavy temperament, saying sorry to members every time he shouts at them, making sisters and making the most of the platform to tell the world about his emotional state for not being able to play cricket anymore, Sreesanth is definitely the one to look out for in the house.
November 26, 2018’s episode of Bigg Boss 12, saw Sree Santh breaking down like how infront of co-contestants Dipika Kakar, Megha Dhade and Jasleen Matharu. Sree Santh was seen talking about how he had tried to commit suicide when he accused of match fixing and was ushered a ban from BCCI. He was heard as saying, “They said I have done match fixing of 10 lakhs and said they have proof. But maine kiya nahi yaar.” He also revealed that even if his son ever plays cricket, Sree will not be permitted to even visit the ground. This very thought made him sob his heart out with his other house inmates consoling him. Checkout the promo of the episode here:
Sree Santh was playing for Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra’s joint venture, Rajasthan Royals when he was accused of match-fixing. To add to it, Raj Kundra was also accused of the same offence but was freed from any trials as no proofs were found against him. In the aforementioned video, where Sree was talking about him being innocent, Raj Kundra’s comment made Sree’s wife, Bhuvaneshwari Kumari furious. With Raj commenting “Epic” on the video with a laughing emoji, Bhuvaneshwari took to Twitter to lash out at Raj. Her tweet could be read as, “This man(RajKundra) has still has not cleared Sree's dues... Epic is his guts to comment where he's been found guilty of betting by court. Whereas Sree Santh has been discharged and proven innocent of all the charges by the court." Here’s the screenshot of Raj’s comment and her tweet: (Must Read: Anil Kapoor Finally Reacts On Reports Of Him Being Upset With Ranveer Singh And Deepika Padukone)
That was not all. Bhuvaneshwari also penned down an open-letter telling all fans that Sree is innocent. Sharing whereabouts of that unfortunate 2013 spot-fixing incident, Bhuvaneshwari’s tweet could be read as, “Heart to Heart message for #SreeFam. A False accusation can ruin person's life. @sreesanth36 #sreesanth #bb12 #BigBoss12.” Here’s the open-letter that she posted in support of her husband:
The doting wifey never leaves any opportunity to speak in support of her husband. Bhuvaneshwari, sometime back, also shared a note which spoke about how Sree is being targeted inside the Bigg Boss house. She had shared, “I genuinely feel that Sree is being targeted a lot inside as well as outside the house for publicity and footage to which I have or he has no control over. We can only choose to ignore, which we all saw, Sree did the last whole week after being called by every possible names like Kala kauva, International kauva, Neech, Ghatiya, Pagal, Farzi, Launda, mental, Dimag mein keeda, dumb, deaf, idiot, makkar, ghatiya aadmi, aisi marungi ki Teri Puste yaad rakhengee, Gira hua insan, sala and many many more things crossing every possible line of decency and also dragging family and generations who has got nothing to do with any of it. Still it is not taken seriously and person who says such things is given Free Hand. Every weekend ka vaar really makes me upset.”
She further shared, “I wonder if Sree Santh would have said 1% of what she had said to any contestant would it not have been a topic of discussion on WKV. I am quite sure it would have been a topic of nation. So why such partiality? When u say every contestant in Big Boss house is equal, then you shouldn't target or highlight Sree Santh alone whereas other contestants have said and done worst things like kicking the table and breaking the plate during the same week, I think it's very unfair. Thank you Sreefam for all the love and support. And for those who r asking; YES, I LOVE SREE unconditionally and will continue to do so in every circumstance. XOXO." (Don't Miss!

Sree Santh, in a throwback interview with TOI, had revealed that had it not been for his wife, he would not have survived the backlash against him. He was quoted as saying, “If not for her support, I don’t know if I would have survived the ordeal. I didn’t know if I would play again. I felt like ending my life. I did think about my mom and dad, but they have three more children and I told myself they might survive even if I’m not around. Then, her father told me ‘Nayan still wants to marry you.’ It felt like a breath of fresh air. After that, I couldn’t think of leaving this world without marrying her. I got to know later that while I was in prison, she was sleeping in the kitchen, to go through what I was going through in prison.”
We hope Sree Santh emerges stronger from the Bigg Boss 12 house! How many of you think that Sree Santh can win the season 12 trophy? Let us know in the comments section below.
