And finally, the curtains came down on the tenth season of Bigg Boss that started on October 16, 2016. After Rohan Mehra's shocking eviction last week, the four contestants that stepped into the final week were Manveer Gujar, Lopamudra Raut, Bani Judge and Manu Punjabi. While there were rumors and even tweets from Kamaal R Khan doing rounds about Bani winning the show for a long time, everything was put to rest when Salman declared Bani as the first runner-up and Manveer as the winner of Bigg Boss Season 10.
Manveer, who walked away with INR 40 lakh cash prize as his winning amount happens to be the first common man to have won the show in ten seasons. Of course, he feels no less than a celebrity at the moment but the Noida boy has been noble enough to donate half his winning amount to charity but that was not all from last night.
The show started with Salman's performance with all the the eliminated contestants excluding Swami Om and Priyanka Jagga, who were obviously not invited to the finale and featured star guests like Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam who came to motivate the finalists and promote their latest movie Kaabil. Siddharth Shukla, Rashmi Desai and Jasmin Bhasin also promoted their new show 'Dil Se Dil Tak' at the finale. Sohail Khan and Neha Dhupia later joined in too.
While Manu was the first person to leave the house making the wise decision of taking INR 10 Lakh with him, Lopa left the house soon after leaving Bani and Manveer in the top two. As the show progressed with the other contestants offering their opinions about who they thought must be the eventual winner, the decision eventually swayed in Manveer's favor who could not stop his tears of happiness.
Manveer, who has now gone back to Noida says Bani has been a tough competitor and an inspiration to many women. He was taken by surprise defeating her but believes his honesty is the only reason for his victory. He would also love to move to Mumbai if he gets good offers, he said.
Amongst other news was Bani apologizing to Lopa and her family post the show, Gaurav who looked upset on Manveer's victory and Manu Punjabi who seemed even happier about Manveer's victory than he was.
