Swami Om was one of the most talked-about contestants during the 10th season. He was feared and resented by many during his stint.
The makers of Bigg Boss 10 had sent him home after the self-proclaimed godman did the grotesque act of throwing urine on housemate Bani J. He was eliminated from the show post that.
After his stint on Bigg Boss, Swami Om continued with his series of controversies and created headlines multiple times.
Earlier during an interaction with India Today, he had called Priyanka Jagga, his fellow contestant as ‘dharmaputri’. He said, “My dharamputri Priyank Jagga was my favourite contestant in the house. Out of all the girls, I found her of extraordinary character. I even made her fast for Karwa Chauth and created history in Bigg Boss house.”
