Bigg Boss: Biggest Cry Babies of all times




Bigg Boss automatically associates with high drama and lowly scheming. An important aspect of both can often be the ability to shed copious tears at the drop of a hat. It is a gameplan that has served many contestants well, over 14 seasons.

IANS picks the best Cry Babies of the show, across all seasons. We have arranged the lot in reverse chronological order.


As soon as she entered the 14th season of Bigg Boss, she was seen getting hyper over the smallest things such as washing clothes. A teary-eyed Jasmin was pacified by her friends Rubina Dilaik and Abhinav Shukla, and she shared that she got to know in the show how difficult it is to wash clothes. The “Naagin” actress was later seen breaking down during a task, as well as on her best friend Aly Goni’s entry and exit.


Arti Singh was a part of the 13 season. She broke down on several occasions. The most famous incident was when she was called former contestant Sidharth Shukla’s fixed deposit. She was also seen in tears when she met her brother Krushna Abhishek in a family weekend episode.


Deepika Kakar is the winner of season 12, considered by many as the most boring season of all times in the history of Bigg Boss. However, the “Sasural Simar Ka” actress may have mistook the controversial reality show as another “saas-bahu” saga and was always ready to shed tears for some or the other reason.


She is tagged the “Sob Queen” of Bigg Boss 9. The defining moment happened when show host Salman Khan played a prank on her. He told Rimi that he was giving the finale ticket to her and she would have to be a part of the show for three months! Rimi started crying and blamed the makers for torturing her. With the prank gone wrong, Salman had to give away his joke and tell her the truth! He told her that she’d have to deal with all kinds of people and she couldn’t afford to give up this easy.


She was the most scared and the emotional housemate on season six. The actress was seen crying every time fellow housemate Imam Siddiqui targeted her. She burst in tears when Imam shed all his clothes and slipped into a skin coloured body suit to irk her.

The crying game actually worked for her, as she went on to win season five! The actress seemed to have taken the telly bahu tag a tad too seriously as she would be seen crying even while fighting. Be it her fights with Amar Upadhyay or during her then husband Sachin Shroff’s visit in the show, the actress found a reason to cry under almost any given curcumstance.


Jacqueline Fernandez named as accused in ED’s supplementary charge sheet: Sources




Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has been named as an accused in the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) supplementary charge sheet filed in the Rs 200 crore money laundering case involving conman Sukesh Chandrashekar, claim sources.

The ED is likely to file a second supplementary prosecution complaint against the actress before the Patiala House Court on Wednesday.

Jacqueline and Nora Fatehi, also a Bollywood actress, have already recorded their statement as witness in the case.

Earlier, fixed deposits worth Rs 7.2 crore belonging to Jacqueline were attached by the ED.

The probe agency termed these gifts and properties as proceeds of crime received by the actress.

In February, the ED had filed its first supplementary prosecution complaint against Pinky Irani, an alleged aide to Chandrashekhar who introduced him to the actresses.

It was alleged in the charge sheet that Pinky used to choose costly gifts for Jacqueline and later used to drop it at her house after the payments were made by Chandrashekhar.

In December last year, the ED had filed the first charge sheet in this matter before the court of Additional Sessions Judge Praveen Singh.

Chandrashekhar has allegedly spent around 20 crore on different models and Bollywood celebs. A few had refused to take gifts from him.

According to an excerpt from the charge sheet, Jacqueline says she did receive expensive gifts from Sukesh and that he had also purchased a horse “Espuela”.

The actress further claimed that he had bought a luxury car for her but she returned it
