Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar just posted a message on his Twitter stating, “Poor Vikas Gupta.” Does that mean the so-called ‘mastermind’ of the show is out of Bigg Boss 11? Seems like it.
The publicist has never been a fan of Vikas, as he publicly praised Hina Khan and complimented Shilpa Shinde on his Twitter earlier. A few weeks ago, Dale had posted another message complimenting Priyank Sharma for the way he was strategically carrying himself in BB.
Inspired by the post, a social media fan group of Priyank approached the PR expert to promote Priyank in the media. To Dale’s surprise, they offered him an amount unheard of in the PR industry in India. “The group said they will pool the monies through crowd-funding with the help of fan pages on Facebook and Twitter,” the Mumbai-based PR expert had said. Though he had found the offer “quite innovative,” the publicist had refused it as he didn’t find it ethical.
For reality television, Dale is the ultimate PR man. He has handled the media hype, controversies and crisis management for Shilpa Shetty during Big Brother and for a full 20 contestants of Bigg Boss, including names such as Rahul Mahajan, Mandana Karimi, Aman Verma, Amar Upadhyay, Rakhi Sawant, Sambhavna Seth, Sherlyn Chopra, Pooja Misrra and Sonali Raut.
Bigg Boss 11 is gearing towards its Grand Finale and the winner of the reality show is expected to be announced very soon.
