Tanishaa is said to be the only contestant on 'Bigg Boss 7' who didn't get any Diwali gift from her family

Tanishaa didn’t seem to have a great Diwali in the Bigg Boss 7 house. She was the only contestant in the house who didn’t get any gift or even a message from her family outside on the festive occasion.

A crew member of the show says, “It was an activity which we had planned for all the contestants as they have been away from their family for long. Most of them are missing their parents, partners and kids. So on the occasion of Diwali we decided to send comedian Bharti Singh to surprise the inmates with gifts and messages from their family members.”

Adds the source, “The production team started approaching family members of the contestants to give some kind of gift or message for their family members inside the house. Tanishaa’s family, however, did not get back with anything. Tanishaa’s mother Tanuja and her sister Kajol apparently ignored the production house’s request and chose not to respond. So Tanishaa did not receive anything in the special episode. She was upset but she preferred not to display any emotion in front of the cameras.”

Kajol’s spokesperson, however, said that the family was not contacted for the gifts.

At the start of the show, Tanuja had expressed her displeasure at Tanishaa participating in the show.
