Bigg Boss OTT 2 contestant Jiya Shankar faced elimination on Wednesday due to receiving the lowest number of votes, just days before the finale. This occurred following mid-week nominations alongside Manisha Rani and Elvish Yadav, following a task at the start of the week. With Jiya’s departure, Manisha, Elvish, Pooja Bhatt, Abhishek Malhan, and Bebika Dhurve have advanced to the finale.

During the task, a significant calendar of memories was displayed in the garden area. As the pages were turned by Bebika, memories of previous contestants leaving the house were revealed. However, the twist emerged when the last page of the calendar unveiled the image of the evicted contestant. Bigg Boss then requested a contestant to turn the pages, and Abhishek Malhan took on the task. An emotional moment ensued as Jiya prepared to exit the house, sharing a touching hug with Abhishek.

Fans expressed their disappointment over Jiya Shankar’s departure on social media, sharing videos of her exit. Dressed in a pastel pink saree, Jiya bid farewell with a smile and embraced Abhishek Malhan before leaving.

Fans’ reactions to Jiya Shankar’s exit poured in on Twitter, with sentiments of affection and best wishes for her future endeavors. Jiya, known for her role in the successful Marathi film “Ved,” alongside Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia Deshmukh, is also recognized for her portrayal of Pavithra “Piku” Bose Singh Rajput in the TV show “Pishachini.” She has been part of various TV shows, including “Meri Hanikarak Biwi,” “Kaatelal & Sons,” “Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya,” “Pyaar Marriage Shhhh,” and “Love By Chance.”

The Bigg Boss OTT 2 grand finale is slated for Monday, August 14, and the show is being broadcast live on Jio Cinema.
