All The Past Bigg Boss Winners And What They Are Doing These Days

All The Past Bigg Boss Winners And What They Are Doing These Days

The 14th season of Bigg Boss is now here and running. As expected, the reality show is still entertaining and a no-brainer. I remember watching the show as a kid and being horrified by the screaming matches. And well, some things never change - I’m still watching, they’re still shouting. After 13 successful seasons, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and revisit the previous Bigg Boss winners. Because, why not? 

Remember when Arshad Warsi was the host of Bigg Boss? Yes, we're rewinding back to 2006 and digging up the contestants who made it through hell. Here is what all the Bigg Boss winners are doing now and some will pleasantly surprise you, while the other will make you go 'I said so!'

Season 13 - Sidharth Shukla

Sidharth Shukla who once started his career as a model, went on to become one of the most prominent television actors after starring in several hit soap operas and reality shows. Not only was he one of the most loved contestants of Bigg Boss 13, he also won the show! Today, he returns to the house in a brand new season. 

Ex-contestants Hina Khan and Gauahar Khan have too made their way to the Bigg Boss house this season! While former contestants have made an appearance in previous seasons as well, this time they have a bigger role to play. As per this year’s rule book, Gauhar would take charge of the kitchen and the contestants would be allowed to work, cook or eat as per her whims. Bigg Boss 13 winner Sidharth would have control over the bedroom. He would be the one deciding who sleeps where, and Hina, meanwhile, would decide who gets to use the luxuries of the house - Bigg Boss mall, spa and gym.

Season 12 - Dipika Kakar

Bigg Boss 12 winner? It was TV actress Dipika Kakar. While the actress celebrated her win with the Bigg Boss 12 trophy and a prize money of Rs 30 lakh, Indian cricketer S. Sreesanth turned out to be the runner up of the show. 

Dipika Kakar was spotted keeping up with her busy shoot schedule for her daily soap Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum, her first show after winning Bigg Boss 12. Later, earlier in October this year, it was reported that the actor hadn’t been keeping well and was even admitted to the hospital owing to her health issues.

Season 11 - Shilpa Shinde

A household name, Shilpa Shinde, the ideal bahu of Indian television won Bigg Boss at the beginning of 2018. Famous for her role in Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain, Shilpa was bound to win this reality TV show, thanks to her dedicated fan-following. She was last seen as a guest on Salman Khan's game show, Dus Ka Dum.
