2021 was a rollercoaster ride in the truest sense with several unpredictable twists and turns. It was raining celeb babies at the beginning of the year and our Instagram feed was flooded with happy faces. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma announced the birth of their daughter, Vamika, a few weeks before Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor welcomed their second son, Jehangir. By the time we entered the second half of the year, several B-town weddings surprised us and how! While Yami Gautam-Aditya Dhar had a low-key shaadi, Katrina Kaif-Vicky Kaushal made their hush-hush relationship official by tying the knot in Rajasthan on December 9. Oh and also, our entertainment industry kept us entertained throughout the year and we’re still obsessed with Bigg Boss 15.

While we enjoyed these 12 months thoroughly, there was one thing that made our experience even more special. Wondering what that might be? You, our awesome readers, you! Your support made our journey hella exciting and pushed us to share happening updates about our entertainment industry without any delay. We cannot thank you enough for the love you have showered on us and to celebrate that, here’s a list of our top 20 POPxo headlines that went viral this year:

20 POPxo Headlines That You Loved, Shared & Read Over & Over Again

From stories that talked about B-town weddings to BB drama, here are the top 20 POPxo headlines that you loved the most in 2021:

When We Called Out Vishal Kotian, Rajiv Adatia & Umar Riaz For Making Tejasswi Uncomfortable

POPxo

In one of the BB episodes, Rajiv Adatia, Vishal Kotian and Umar Riaz were supposed to get a reaction out of the safe gharwalas in the house. Instead of making the task interesting, they made it creepy by getting uncomfortably close to Tejasswi Prakash. They said derogatory things to the actress that boiled our blood and almost made her cry. Now that two of the three contestants are evicted, we hope that they watch the feed and realise their mistakes.

When We Revealed The Connection Between BB 15 Wild Cards & Shamita Shetty

POPxo

We were quite curious to find out how Shamita Shetty’s game would be affected once her boyfriend, Raqesh Bapat, and Rakhi-brother, Rajiv, entered the show as wild cards. While their arrival did not make much of a difference in her gameplay, she did get the emotional support she was looking for.

When We Proposed To Rename Bigg Boss As ‘The Shamita Shetty Show’ For Obvious Reasons

POPxo

Initially, three wild card contestants entered the BB 15 house and all of them were connected to Shamita Shetty. Neha Bhasin was her BFF, Rajiv was her Rakhi-brother and Raqesh was her boyfriend. We wondered why the actress was getting so much support when the entire show was meant to check the gharwalas’ mental strength.

When Devoleena Bhattacharjee & Abhijeet Bichukale’s Flirting Game Made Us Cringe

POPxo

Abhijit Bichukale claimed that Devoleena Bhattacharjee would soon fall in love with him. NGL, to watch a married man flirt with another woman on national television and make offensive remarks on her made us cringe so hard. We’re glad that Devo called out his actions later in the BB episodes.

When Tejasswi Prakash Called Out Vishal Kotian’s Sexist Remarks

POPxo

Firstly, Vishal called his own so-called sister on the show, Shamita, ‘maal and mast chiz‘. Next, he continued to do so despite the actress telling him that she was not comfortable with it. Lastly, instead of realising his mistake and apologising for it, he continued to defend himself. His sexist remarks infuriated us and we’re glad that Tejasswi called him out when he tried to do something similar with her.

When Kavya Called Out Her Toxic Sasural In Anupamaa

POPxo

While Kavya isn’t a goody-two-shoes herself, her in-laws are not perfect either. Someone had to call out the toxic traits of Anupama’s family and we’re glad that Kavya did just that. Click here to know about their problematic behaviour.

When We Wondered If Gaurav Khanna Was Quitting Anupamaa

POPxo

We have been shipping Anuj and Anupama for a while now and want them to end up together. Obviously, it was quite a shocker when we learned that Gaurav Khanna might quit the show soon and wondered what went wrong. Thankfully, it was all a big confusion that started because of this silly joke!

When We Called Out Abijit Bichukale’s Homophobia

POPxo

Abhijit has been creating a lot of nuisance in the BB house and we’re so fed up with him. He crossed all lines when he made homophobic remarks on Rajiv and we’re so disappointed that no one in the house raised a voice against him…not even Rajiv himself. Here’s why their silence can be triggering and why we expect more from the makers.

When We Called Out BB 15 Host Salman Khan’s Regressive Thoughts

POPxo

Abhijit, in one of his creepiest moments, tried to take advantage of Devoleena’s friendship and asked her to kiss him in exchange for his support in a task. While the actress turned him down loud and clear, we expected the makers to take strict action against the man. But, instead of bashing him, host Salman Khan turned the entire thing around and somehow, found Devoleena at fault instead. He shared some pretty regressive opinions on the matter that we wished we had never listened to. Here’s what the actor said.

When We Thought #Tejran Was Coming To An End

POPxo

Tejasswi and Karan Kundrra’s relationship is one of the only good things on Bigg Boss 15 right now. After receiving flak for focussing more on each other and less on their gameplay, the couple faced some rifts in their bond as well. Well, things did take an ugly turn when they decided to call it quits. While they patched up later, here’s what went down between them.

When We Got Tired Of Tejasswi Being Targeted For No Reason

POPxo

If something happens once, it’s luck. If it happens twice, then it’s a coincidence. But, if the same thing keeps happening over and over again, then it’s a calculated move. Tejasswi was being targeted by other gharwalas consistently for no reason at all and we wondered if their actions reeked of sexism. Click here to know if her loud voice and clear opinions threatened other contestants in the house.

When We Thought Ieshaan Sehgaal & Meisha Iyer Broke Up

POPxo

Ieshaan Sehgaal and Meisha Iyer’s whirlwind romance had too many ups and downs in the Bigg Boss 15 house and we’re glad that the couple is happy together IRL now. But, there was a time in the show when they had decided to part ways for this reason and NGL, it got us super worried.

When We Wondered Why Shamita Shetty Got Special Treatment By BB Makers

POPxo

At one point in Bigg Boss OTT, it appeared that Shamita and Raqesh had almost stopped trying to win the trophy. They were neither participating in the tasks nor were they worried about the eliminations. The grapevine buzzed with reports that the two were promised direct entry to the BB 15 house and TBH, we’re still not sure how true those claims were. Read about it here.

When Karan Kundrra Reminded Us Of Kabir Singh

POPxo

While we love Karan and Tejasswi’s relationship, we defs don’t like it when the actor tries to dominate his ladylove and acts obsessively with her. In one of the Weekend Ka Vaar episodes, Salman called out his problematic behaviour and asked him to treat his girlfriend better. Click here to know what happened.

When We Called Out Abhijit Bichukle For Crossing Limits With Devoleena Bhattacharjee

POPxo

Abhijit asked Devoleena to kiss him in exchange for his support in a task. The actress ignored him a few times before calling out his predatory behaviour. He quickly retreated and tried to silence her, but obviously, his antics did not work anymore. Sadly, there were several gharwalas who supported Abhijit and honestly, we hold them responsible for encouraging his problematic behaviour as well. Here’s what exactly happened between him and Devo.

When Ieshaan Sehgaal Opened Up About His Sexuality

POPxo

Meisha and Ieshaan had several candid conversations in the BB 15 house and in one of them, the actress asked about his boyfriend’s sexual orientation. He answered all her questions and we loved how maturely the two handled the situation. Here’s what happened.

When Abhinav Shukla Surprised Wifey Rubina Dilaik

POPxo

Rubina Dilaik won Bigg Boss 14 and her victory did not surprise us at all. She had everything that made her a winner in our eyes and we were so glad when she lifted the BB trophy. Abhinav Shukla threw the most amazing welcome-back party for his wifey and it was all things romantic. Here’s how the couple celebrated the special day.

When Moose Jattana Called Karan Johar A Biased Host

POPxo

Bigg Boss OTT was a massive success and while we liked Karan Johar’s hosting skills, we did find him a little biased towards certain contestants. In an interview with a leading daily, former contestant Moose Jattana candidly spoke about his biases and you can click here to know what she said.

When Raqesh Bapat Revealed The Real Reason Behind Quitting BB 15

POPxo

Raqesh’s sudden entry into the BB 15 house and sudden departure surprised us all. We wondered if he entered just to meet his ladylove and planned his eviction from the start. Moreover, Shamita’s accusations made us believe that we might be right about assumption. But, the actor slammed all rumours and revealed the real reason behind his exit from the show. Here’s what he said.

When Vishal Aditya Singh Opened Up About His Relationship Status

POPxo

People loved Vishal Aditya Singh’s chemistry with Nikki Tamboli and Sana Makbul on Khatron Ke Khiladi 10. Their pics looked extremely mushy and we wondered what’s cooking between them. Well, the actor opened up about his equation with his co-stars and you can click here to know what he said.
