Bigg Boss showed another kind gesture for the contestants twice in a row. After the guest appearances of co-stars and friends on Wednesday's episode, Thursday saw Bigg Boss sending in special deliveries of food for everyone. The food came courtesy of the famous Dabbawalas from Mumbai. The food was completely homemade and all the contestants got emotional. Leaving behind past fights everyone shared their food with each other and Paras started crying. Paras called the Dabbawalas his Santa Claus.
After the delightful surprise, Bigg Boss announced the end to Asim's captaincy of the week. Shehnaaz and Vishal now had to compete for the new captaincy position. The two contenders had to convince others in the house to give up on personal things to support their friend. Shehnaaz first asked Asim to give up on one of his belts. Despite not having the best relationship Asim supported Shehnaaz and gave up his belt. She later asked Siddharth who also laughed but later agreed to support Shehnaaz.
Vishal first asked Rashami to give up on a family portrait which she did. He then asked Mahira and Aarti to give up on their family's belongings. They refused and Vishal lost. Shehnaaz became the new captain of the house and is now safe from next week's eliminations.
