Controversies

In the 1st season, there was a cat fight between two contestants Diandra Soares and Sonali Raut and had to get security involved. Eliminated contestants Arjit Taneja, Priya Jhangiani, Hina Khan, Nathalia Kaur and Varun Kumar supported Diandra against Sonali.

Again another controversy took up in the 1st season, when their was a major serious fight between contestant Hina Khan and host Asha Negi, who replaced Sriti Jha as she was gearing up for her new show Kumkum Bhagya. A week later Hina got eliminated. After her elimination, Adaa Khan, Mrunal Jain and Shraddha Arya had told her that Asha had asked the makers to get her out of the show, whereas Hina had looked at the votes and said she had the highest votes.

In the 2nd season, Mahek Chahal had a great fall during rehersals and sprained her knee. The doctor said she couldn't dance and decided to quit the show. She got evicted in the 2nd round.

In the 3rd season, Ragini Khanna had a huge fight with Katie Price and Kriti Sanon. After getting eliminated, Kriti said some bad remarks about Ragini which irked her cousins Aarti Singh and Krushna Abhishek.

In the 4th season, Karishma Tanna was reported to be finalized to leave the show mid-way due to being needed for another show. Director Karan Chaggar had gave Karishma a choice or he will get her replaced from the show Ghar Aii Hamari Pyaare Bahu but wisely she chose to get herself eliminated.[2][3] Yet another controversy was when TV actresses Nia Sharma and Devoleena Bhattacharjee had to quit the competition so early. The makers had already finalized their eviction date due to the clash between two popular shows Saath Nibhaana Saathiya and Jamai Raja.[4][5]
