The former (BB) Bigg Boss- 14 (Colors) finalist and second runner-up vivacious Nikki Tamboli, known for her sarcastic jibes when provoked and lovey-dovey overtures otherwise is currently scorching the sands of Cape Town ( South Africa). The tantalizing Tamboli who used to be one of BB-host mega-star Salman Khan’s favourite butts for being chided and counseled for her arrogant conduct, at times with seniors, is now shooting for her next reality TV show Khatron Ke Khiladi-11 (Colors) in Cape Town.
The instagram sensation Nikki is showcasing her shapely figure clad in a monokini swimsuit wearing a neutral toned make-up sizzling look. “High tides and good vibes,” read the caption. Last week, Nikki Tamboli uploaded snaps with actor Abhinav Shukla, who was also her co-contestant in BB 14. The 24-year-old oomphy, social media darling stuck her tongue out in one of the goofy pictures. In another, the duo is seen wearing masks. “The people who make you smile from just seeing them, those are my favourite people,” Nikki wrote in the description.
The freak-out fashionista also added that she missed Abhinav’s wife and Bigg Boss 14 winner charismatic Rubina Dilaik who was her constant close-confidante-buddy in BB-14 “The art of being happy is to be satisfied with what you have,” read the side-note. Surprisingly, Nikki did not mention that she was missing her Bigg Boss-buddy pop-singer Jaan Kumar Sanu, with whom she had a quirky, oscillating love-hate rishta. Earlier, outspoken Nikki explained in an emotional note why she decided to participate in the KKK-11 TV show, immediately after her brother, Jatin Tamboli’s sudden demise.
She shared, “I remember before my brother was admitted in hospital, we had discussed Khatron Ke Khiladi and he was very excited and happy about it. I am choosing Khatron Ke Khiladi because of my prior work- commitment and I have always been loyal to my work because it has given me everything.” Nikki concluded the message saying, “I am fighting my pain to see my brother happy and he will be my shield forever.” The talented actress-dancer-model Tamboli is known for her striking performance-roles and glamour-quotient in Southside regional movies like Chikati Gadilo Chithakotudu, Kanchana 3 and Thipparaa Meesam.
