Bigg Boss Season 13: Ex-Bigg Boss Contestants Stand Divided Over Results

The Bigg Boss Season 13 finale saw Sidharth Shukla and Asim Riaz face-off with Sidharth Shukla being declared the winner. But along with viewers, celebrities were also vocal about the results

Bigg Boss Season 13 has been an active one in terms of fan wars, fan support and different “teams.”  With fans often getting into debates and working hard to get their favorite contestant trending, Asim Riaz, Sidharth Shukla, Shehnaaz Gill and Rashami Desai, who made it to the top four, each had a dedicated fan base committed to making their favorite win.  However, along with fans, the contestants also had supporters in celebrities, particularly ex-Bigg Boss contestants. 

Talented actress Meera Chopra of “Article 375” fame (and Priyanka Chopra’s cousin) has been particularly vocal in her support for Asim Riaz.  She also shared her disbelief at the bias towards Sidharth Shukla and the (alleged) rigging done by the channel to make Sidharth win.

Kamaal R Khan, a controversial contestant from Bigg Boss season 3, has gone on to acquire a following for his film review and views on the entertainment world.  KRK has also heavily discussed rigging done by Colors this season.

Andy Kumar, VJ and a contestant on season 7 of Bigg Boss, made it clear his support was for Shehnaaz Gill or Asim Riaz.

Likewise, actress and Bigg Boss Season 7 winner, Gauhar Khan tweeted in favor of Asim after the results were announced.

Kishwer Rai (Merchant), a popular actress and contestant on Bigg Boss Season 9, tweeted against the results, upset at the choice of winner.

Saba Khan, a contestant on Bigg Boss Season 12, cheered on Asim, wishing him success despite his loss.

Popular actor and Bigg Boss Season 12 contestant, Karanvir Bohra, called Asim the People’s Champ.

Of course, Sidharth Shukla has his share of admirers.  Vindhu Dara Singh, winner of Bigg Boss season 3, has tweeted heavily in support of Sidharth Shukla this season.

Vikas Gupta, producer and a contestant on Bigg Boss Season 11, also threw his support behind Sidharth Shukla, also entering the house this season to support the actor. 

Manveer Gurjar, the winner of Bigg Boss Season 10, has been another of Sidharth Shukla’s open supporters and congratulated Shukla on his win, ready to celebrate.

Tehseen Poonawalla, a Bigg Boss season 13 contestant and a known media personality, also cheered on Sidharth Shukla.

Many celebrities, though not openly throwing their support behind one contestant, questioned the choice of winner.  Benafsha Soonawalla, a contestant on Bigg Boss Season 11, discussed the lax action against violence this season.

She followed up with her own experience in the house, being punished for acts of small violence in stark contrast to the lack of punishment meted out to Sidharth Shukla. 

Kamaal R Khan also questioned the behavior of the Bigg Boss winner.  Ironically, KRK was thrown out of the Bigg Boss house for throwing a water bottle. 

Regardless of the opinions on the winner and the results, Bigg Boss is a show that brings in viewership each year.  While Bigg Boss season 14 is at least 7 months away, fans of the show are already counting down the days for the next season.
