A befitting grand finale to a show which captivated the audience' attention for the past three months! Anxiously awaiting celebrities, eager audience, a host of surprises and excitement and to top it all the final judgement declaring the winner of the show, who gets to walk off with a stupendous fifty lakhs as his/her booty.
Intense moments of tension and drama passed by, everyone exchanged courtesies, much action transpired and before any guesses could be decided upon the winner was proclaimed and a steady and composed Rahul Roy was to walk off with a prize money of 50 lakhs. With Rakhi's surprise eviction on Wednesday, Rahul, Ravi and Carol were left behind. Among the final contestants, the public ousting Ravi Kissen and Carol Gracias chose Rahul Roy as the winner of the much talked about show Big Boss, on Sony TV. Saturday was the d-day of the final judgement when all the thirteen celebrities had the opportunity to meet one another and exchange their point of views. Baba Sehgal and Rakhi Sawant were the performers of the day; Kashmira and Rupaali also performed some dance numbers, though Rupaali proved to be a better dancer. While Anupama was openly bold and frank enough to discuss her relation with Aryan Vaid whom she described as a different person inside, Aryan was there to wish Anupama the very best in her endeavours.
Emotional moments transpired when the lights went off, Ravi hugged his family and saw his daughter crying and Carol graciously walked out when she was asked to leave Big Boss' home without any melodrama. Arshad Warsi, the lively host complimented her for being as adorable as ever. Rahul Roy was the chosen one who was voted as the winner to claim the prize money.
Sharing his views, Rahul Roy spoke to the media that his blind faith in God, steadfastness, and tolerant and calm temperament paid off in the end. Rahul had nominated Carol as the one appropriate to be the winner of the show because of the efforts she had taken to learn Hindi and the efficiency with which she managed everything in spite of being an outsider to the film industry. Rahul made it clear that he had never been a 'dhongi' and has always been his real self on the show. He believes that the show has renewed his faith in family values and plans to donate some money to children's charity.
With Rahul Roy emerging victorious and claiming the Big Boss' coveted prize, the most popular reality show on Sony TV has come to an end leaving behind many memories sweet and bitter.
