Bigg Boss 13 just got over, the viewers are not over it yet! The show, winners and the channel have the hot topics of discussion on social media. As the viewers are aware Sidharth Shukla bagged the trophy. While Asim Riaz bagged the second place, Shehnaz Gill was declared the second runner-up. Many of them on social media claim that the show is rigged and the makers fixed Sidharth as winner as he is dating the Chief Content Officer (CCO) of the show, Manisha Sharma.
Recently, a lady's (Feriha) tweet went viral on social media in which she claimed that she quit the job (executive from the Colors' creative team) after the channel favoured Sidharth over others. Also, a video from the control room has gone viral in which a lady is heard saying that both Sid and Asim received equal votes. Sidharth, Asim and the channel have reacted to the claim of Bigg Boss 13 being fixed.
Sidharth On Being Called A Fixed Winner
Regarding the same, Sidharth told IE, "What do you say on such things. I won the title after a gruelling journey and when someone questions that, it's really sad. I feel sorry for people who have such thoughts. If you have followed the season, you would know that it hasn't been an easy time for me. It's not that it doesn't matter, but you cannot keep answering every question thrown at you."
Asim Rubbished The Reports Of Show Being Fixed
Asim rubbished the reports of the show being fixed. He was quoted by TOI as saying, "Kuch bhi aisa nahin hai. Fixed kuch bhi nahin hota... audience ke pyaar ki wajah se main yahaan tak pahuncha aur wo (Sidharth) bhi jeeta hai. So, fixed kuch nahi hai... it's just real. Jo hai saamne hai toh aisa kuch bhi nahin tha. ( Nothing of that sort happened. Nothing was fixed.. I reached this far and he (Sidharth) won the show thanks to all the live of the audience. So, nothing is fixed... it's just real. Whatever happened is there before your eyes and nothing of that sort happened)."
Channel Says The Lady Is Not Associated With The Channel!
Regarding the lady's (Feriha) claim who claimed she quit the job after realising the channel was unfair and had also shared the video from the control room that showed both Sid and Asim got equal votes, Colors TV issued a statement saying the ‘individual' is not employed with them. Also, the channel requested the viewers to not believe anything coming from inauthentic and unauthorized sources.
