Last week in Bigg Boss 11 house, Sabyasachi Satpathy was nominated for eviction for the first time, along with eight other contestants. Luckily, he was saved by the audience and instead internet sensation Dhinchak Pooja got eliminated.
A well-known fashion designer from Odisha, trained dancer and a great cook, Sabyasachi finds himself nominated for eviction once again this week even though the buzz was that he would be shown the doors last week itself. However, Sabya managed to garner more votes than Dhinchak Pooja and became safe! So far, the only Odia contestant in the show has maintained a low profile and stayed away from controversies and limelight, the reason why host Salman Khan has been continuously advising (most of the time with his characteristic sarcasm!) him to become more visible in the house.
However, for a change, Salman was seen praising Sabyasachi in the last ‘Weekend Ka Vaar’ episode along with other celebrities who were a part of that episode. It so happened that all contestants were given a task to share their dark secret before the audience and camera. Sabyasachi had gone ahead to say that at the age of 16, he was contemplating a sex change operation because he thought it was the only way through which men could love him! Both Salman and the celebrities judging the task had praised Sabyasachi for being brave enough to share such a secret on national television. Although contestant Shilpa Shinde won the immunity in that task, there were many including viewers who believed that Sabyasachi was the more deserving one because it’s not easy to reveal such a personal side.

Earlier talking to MyCityLinks, Sabyasachi’s brother Jitu Satpathy had mentioned that irrespective of Sabya’s choices, he is very proud of his brother. “Sexuality is the individual choice of a person. As long as he is not doing anything wrong, there is no issue. Moreover, time has changed and the present generation is very open-minded.” said Jitu.
Meanwhile, though Sabyasachi has not been active in the Big Boss house so far, most of the house mates seem to be fond of him, both for his excellent culinary skills and also for his entertaining dramatics. His ‘UmraoJaan’ act in particular has been quite a hit on internet and even Salman had mentioned it in one of the ‘Weekend Ka Vaar’ episodes.
Interestingly, not many know that celebrity contestant Vikas Gupta who has nominated Sabyasachi this week for not actively taking part in the tasks and other issues, shares an interesting bond with him. This was evident in an earlier task when Vikas saved Sabyasachi from nomination due to the reason that during Vikas’s initial struggling days, Sabya had once offered him delicious food at his home in Mumbai!
Unfortunately, with Sabyasachi once again nominated for eviction this week along with four other contestants, My City Links makes an appeal to Bigg Boss viewers from Odisha to vote and save him from elimination.
