Priyanka began, expressing her disapproval of Piyu’s temper; however, she quickly added a note of appreciation, praising Piyu’s endearing way with animals. Piyu, visibly moved, was on the verge of tears as she labelled Priyanka “insensitive.” Prompted by one of the judges of the show, Rhea Chakraborty, to reveal something she likes about Priyanka, Piyu paused and then said, “Her smile.” This tender moment tugged at the heartstrings of not just the audience, but also the show’s judges.
