Bigg Boss 11 ended with a mega episode on Sunday. Shilpa Shinde defeated her closest rival Hina Khan in a tense finale. Vikas Gupta was declared the second runner-up. Puneesh Sharma was the only commoner to enter the top four this season.
And although fans and TV audience may have spent the last few minutes as Salman Khan prepared to announce Bigg Boss 11 winner on Sunday night biting their nails, but not Shilpa.
With actor Hina standing beside her, she was sure that she will emerge the winner.
“I am very happy. I don’t know how to thank my fans for their support. This reality show has really changed my life.”
Shilpa also believes that audience support also is a clean chit of sorts. When asked about her controversial leave from the show ‘Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai!’ which prompted the production house to send a legal notice accusing her of breach of contract, she said, “I did not leave ‘Bhabhi Ji… I have never hurt anyone and that pays back. I have always wanted well for everyone. This was my first reality show and this is how I am in real life.”
Although her relationship with Vikas wasn’t the best, the two did have a good run. When push comes to shove, it’s all well between the two as they are already gearing up to start a web series together.
“There were a few things about him that bothered me but all that is sorted now. I may not be his friend but I can certainly move past it.”
And what does she has to say about Bigg Boss 11 first runner-up Hina Khan?
“I have no problem with Hina. I like her acting and she is beautiful too. People told me she isn’t as good as she seems, however, I really did try to keep things cordial in the start. However, I couldn’t continue that.”
She also said that she would not want to meet Hina ever again in her life. “While Hina Khan knew everything in the kitchen, I had no clue. However, I did all the work but she never bothered. I had never cooked for 18-19 people earlier.”
