Curtains came down on Bigg Boss Kannada Season 2. After 3 long months of fights, entertainment and laughter, the game show concluded with Akul Balaji emerging victorious on the night of Grand Finale. Four contestants had reached the finale. Shwetha, Deepika, Srujan and Akul were the four finalists of this season.
The contest was between Srujan and Akul. In the end Akul managed to edge out Srujan to win the prize money. Akul's victory has not gone well with the viewers. Social media websites like Facebook and Twitter were abuzz with voice of dissent by the viewers. A lot of viewers feel that Srujan should have won the Bigg Boss Kannada prize money.
The number of votes polled is never revealed in Bigg Boss shows. Therefore it creates suspicion in the mind of the viewers about the veracity of the winner. Srujan was quite popular among the viewers. His sense of humor and cheeky one-liners had made him the favorite among the viewers. Many viewers did not relate with Akul's erratic and explosive behavior inside the house.
This isn't the first time that the viewers have felt largely betrayed by the Bigg Boss result. Last season, Vijay Raghavendra won the first season of Bigg Boss Kannada defeating Arun Sagar. Among the two, Arun Sagar had a much more strong fan following and was tipped to be the winner.
Whatever may be the viewer's choice, the decision has been made and Akul has been declared as the winner. Suvarana TV, which broadcasted the show this season, has been criticized for poor content by the viewers. It remains to be seen how this decision will effect the popularity of Season 3 of Bigg Boss Kannada.
