Mumbai: Veteran actor Puneet Issar and model-actress Sonali Raut have been evicted from controversial reality show 'Bigg Boss 8'.
The duo was evicted last night at the show's finale, giving way to a special series 'Bigg Boss Halla Bol', where the remaining five contestants-- Gautam Gulati, Pritam Singh, Karishma Tanna, Dimpy and Ali Quli Mirza-- will be competing with five new challengers.
Puneet, 55, who was an important member of the famous P3G gang on the show, emerged as the father figure and guardian for all the housemates. The actor was even evicted for a short period once for his aggressive behaviour towards former contestant Arya Babbar during a task.
Sonali, 24, who was the first one to be eliminated from the show and later brought back, was known for her carefree nature and being close to co-contestants Upen Patel and Gautam. The 'Xpose' actress was termed one of the laziest participants.
'Bigg Boss Halla Bol', to be hosted by director Farah Khan on Colors, will launch today with the new challengers -- Ajaz Khan, Mahek Chahal, Sana Khan, Rahul Mahajan and Sambhavna Seth.
