Mumbai: Commoner Manveer Gurjar has been declared the winner of Bigg Boss season 10 after he beat celebrities like Bani Judge and Lopamudra Raut in the popular reality show’s grand finale.
The finale that took place today saw Bani as the first runner up, while Lopa was announced as the second runner up.
Manveer’s best friend in the house, Manu Punjabi, was the fourth finalist but he quit the game after accepting the offer made by Bigg Boss to take Rs 10 Lakh and go home.
“I feel extremely happy now. I have lived this journey, fought my way, and now sitting here as a winner I feel I’ve done everything from my heart. This is the result of being honest,” Manveer told PTI.
Along with the title, Manveer received cash prize of Rs 40 Lakh out of which his father pledged to donate fifty percent of the amount to the show’s host Salman Khan’s Being Human charity.
Despite being a commoner, Manveer’s win does not come as a surprise as over his three-month long stay inside the Bigg Boss house, he was successful in winning the audiences’ hearts, thanks to his simplicity, straightforwardness and dedication towards the game.
With Manveer’s win, the season seems to have justified its concept of celebrities vs commoners.
An unknown boy from Haryana not only outlasted many successful names of the film and television industry, on the show, but even got highest votes in the finale, where he was pitted against reality TV star Bani.
Apart from the winner announcement, Bigg Boss 10 grand finale saw a lot of entertaining performances.
Salman kicked off the finale by performing on his songs “Mera Hi Jalwa” and “Aaj Ki Party”. Evicted contestants Gaurav Chopra, Rohan Mehra, Mona Lisa, Nitibha Kaul, Lokesh Kumari and Navin Prakash joined him on stage.
Colors’ upcoming show Dil Se Dil tak cast Siddharth Shukla and Rashami Desai interacted with the four finalists. The evening also saw Neha Dhupia and Sohail Khan promoting their upcoming comedy show “Chhote Miyan”.
Music composer Shankar Mahadevan interacted with Salman to introduce the new Colors reality show “Rising Star”, which he is judging.
Making the grand finale a night to remember, was a string of performances by “Naagin” stars Mouni Roy and Karanvir Bohra, Udann’s Vijayendra Kumeria Meera Deosthale. Former Bigg Boss contestant Karishma Tanna shook a leg with Salman on the stage.
