Ashutosh an unknown name till about a year ago has turned out to be one of the biggest celebrities on Indian television. After winning MTV Hero Honda Roadies 5.0 he has made a double by winning Bigg Boss. As like in Roadies he was not considered a strong contestant in the show. He was nominated for elimination thrice but his destiny had its own course.

During his stay at the house he and former Miss World Daina Hayden shared awesome chemistry. The USP of the lad from Saharanpur was that he was friendly with all the participants. Ashu as he is fondly called will be rejoicing his double crown while Rahul Mahajan sulks in his home.
After 94 grueling days of literal house arrest Ashutosh Kaushik has won the second season of Bigg Boss defeating the other finalists Zulfi Syed and Raja Choudhary. Ashutosh pocketed Rs 10 million in the Grand Finale which witnessed the presence of the 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar and the ever hot Shilpa Shetty. Ashutosh also won the 'Mr Honest' title for his conduct during his stay at the house in Lonavla.
