20th August 2023, Mumbai: A Call for Unity: Abhishek’s Message to Fans
Abhishek Malhan recently took to Twitter to address the ongoing fandom war between his supporters and Elvish Yadav’s devotees. He pleaded with them to cease the comparisons and rivalry, urging them to put an end to the “Abhishek vs. Elvish” narrative. In a move to quell the animosity and frenemies angle, he emphasized that it has always been about “ABHISHEK & ELVISH.” It’s a heartening reminder that friendship transcends competition, and the era of Bigg Boss OTT 2 has concluded.
Record-Breaking Live Sessions Fuel Fandom War
The recent resurgence of the Abhishek vs. Elvish rivalry can be attributed to their record-breaking Instagram live sessions. Elvish Yadav, in a remarkable feat, attracted a staggering 594K concurrent viewers during his live session, surpassing even MC Stan’s record. Later that evening, Abhishek Malhan hosted his own live session, which garnered 371K concurrent live viewers. These numbers indicate a simmering fandom war that may have prompted Abhishek to intervene and call for unity among his supporters and Elvish’s fans.
Bhaichara Over Fandom Rivalry
Despite the competitive atmosphere among their fans, both Abhishek and Elvish have displayed camaraderie on social media. Elvish even left a heartwarming comment of “love you” on Abhishek’s Instagram live. It raises the question of why fans are engaging in such bitter disputes when their idols maintain a friendly connection. Abhishek’s message underlines the importance of prioritizing the genuine friendship that exists between them, reminding fans that “bhaichara” (brotherhood) should always take precedence.
Abhishek’s Health Scare
During the final stages of Bigg Boss OTT 2, Abhishek Malhan faced a health scare that resulted in his hospitalization. Despite the challenges, he attended the grand finale, showing his commitment to the show and his fans. Following the event, he returned to the hospital before eventually heading back to Delhi with his parents. Abhishek is currently recuperating at his home in Delhi, and his fans are sending him their best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Celebrity Well-Wishers and Jiya Shankar’s Comment
During his hospitalization, Abhishek received visits from fellow contestants and celebrities, including Manisha Rani, Jiya Shankar, Bebika Dhurve, and Aashika Bhatia. These visits served as a testament to the bonds formed within the Bigg Boss OTT 2 house, transcending the competition. Jiya Shankar, in particular, commented on Abhishek’s recent live session, expressing her support and solidarity. It’s a reminder that beyond the rivalry, there’s a sense of unity among the contestants.
The Abhishek vs. Elvish fandom war that has erupted since their participation in Bigg Boss OTT 2 is a reflection of the passionate following these two YouTubers have garnered. Abhishek’s message emphasizes the importance of unity and friendship over rivalry, reminding fans that their idols value their connection. As Abhishek continues to recover, his supporters can look forward to his return to YouTube, hopefully with a message of unity for his fans and a continuation of the bhaichara between him and Elvish Yadav. After all, the show is over, and it’s time for the fans to move on from the rivalry and celebrate the camaraderie that was always there.
