Som Sekhar is a Bigg Boss S4 contestant who loves his pet dogs Kuttu and Ronnie as his own family.

Even during one of the task, Som wrote a letter to his furkid when the contestants were asked to write a letter to the person they missed the most.

Now rumours started spreading that his pet dog Kuttu has passed away.

But Som's family and friends soon clarified that it was not Kuttu, but Kuttu's son Ronnie has passed away after fighting a snake which has entered the house.

It is still unknown if Som will be notified of this devastating news, and how he will handle such loss during his stay in the Bigg Boss house.

Our deepest condolences to Som and his family on the loss of their furkid. Check out the social media postings here:
