Bigg Boss 13 wildcard entry Tehseen Poonawalla has finally entered the house and the popular political analyst has already made headlines as the highest-paid Bigg Boss contestant this season. Ever since Poonawalla joined the Salman Khan-hosted reality show, there is one question that keeps hounding the fans of Bigg Boss -does he belong to Congress or BJP? Well, most of the Indian politics followers might know the answer to that.
Well, Tehseen Poonawalla is a Congress supporter and has represented the party in various news debate shows. The confusion about his political alignment arises because of his brother Shehzad Poonawalla. Shehzad was once a part of Congress, but has defected to Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) and has been their spokesperson since.
During the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, both featured in Zee News talk show 'Bhai vs Bhai where they spoke as Congress and BJP's political analysts. Bigg Boss 13 Nominations: Paras Chhabra, Shefali Jariwala, Shehnaaz Gill, Sidharth Shukla… Housemates Dump Kachra On Each Other Literally (Watch Video)

Interestingly, Tehseen has a family connection with the Gandhi family, as he is married to Robert Vadra's cousin Monica Vadera in 2016. Priyanka Gandhi is the wife of Robert Vadra and sister of former party president of Congress, Rahul Gandhi, which makes him RaGa's brother-in-law.
Tehseen is always logical while presenting his perspectives and point of views in the news debates strongly representing the Congress panel during TV discussions and debates. Probably the reason for being highest paid Bigg Boss 13 contestant for being logical and straightforward and we will see more of him in the Salman Khan show.
