Tonight's episode of Bigg Boss Season 12 starts with Puneesh telling Hiten that the word 'actress' suits only him and no one else in this house as he is extremely sprinkled, unlike Hina, who he believes thinks no end of herself. He states Shilpa, too, does not seem to be a star and although Shilpa gets upset a bit, she insists she's a not a star.
Afterwards, when Priyank and Luv are working out in the backyard area, Priyank informs Benafsha to go and call Shilpa in the kitchen so that she could sit on Priyank's back because he wants to have a weight when doing push ups. Akash is about and if he hears that, he says it was dumb to tell a woman to do something like this. Yet, Benafsha goes to Shilpa and gives Priyank's message but she loses it and yells at Benafsha. Then, Priyank enters the kitchen and clarifies that his intention wasn't erroneous. He informs Shilpa that she's "her mom's age" and this further angers her. Priyank apologises for her, but she does not accept.
The contestants wake up to the song, 'Oonchi Hai Construction.' Akash abruptly loses his cool over Vikas and Shilpa's friendship because he thinks that they both faked their fight for more screen time. He says he feels cheated and determines to be friends with everybody in the house. He apologizes to each and everybody in the home, and cuts his ties with Shilpa and informs her that she is not his 'mom' anymore, she is just Shilpa Shinde because of him. Hina is the first man in the opposite team to show solidarity towards him and informs her gang that Akash was telling the truth. Hina also states that Shilpa is the biggest player in the house.
The nominations begin. A tower is constructed from the backyard, and a telephone is stored at a table up there. Every time the phone rings, a contestant must scale up and answer the telephone. First up is Hina, who's advised that she has been nominated since she picked the phone. Luv, who is near Hina instantly agrees and gets the tattoo done in the hands of Sapna. Bigg Boss admits that Hina is safe from nominations. Hina sheds tears for Luv and hugs him.
