The following morning, Vicky attempts to comfort Ankita once again, but she remains unresponsive. Samarth mocks Anurag for ranking himself at the top and deliberately provokes Abhishek by speaking negatively about him and Munawar. Ayesha addresses an uncomfortable situation with Aoora, expressing her wish that he should have approached her directly instead of discussing it with others. Munawar voices his concern that Samarth and his group engage in bullying. A sponsored task unfolds within the house, where participants name weaker contestants.
