Season 14 of Bigg Boss is all set to return to our TV screens in a couple of weeks, on October 13th! This means that our lives will finally be enriched again with nonstop entertainment, unnecessary drama, and ridiculous inhouse fighting. Basically, what we all have been going through in the last 7 months with our families, under lockdown.
But there is a lot we owe to Bigg Boss. It’s lasted 13 years and counting, and has not disappointed us since. Every winner was rightfully chosen. So, we thought of taking a little trip down memory lane and checking out what each of the 13 winners have been up to.
Because, why not?
1. Rahul Roy
Rahul Roy is an Indian film actor, producer, and former model known for his works in Bollywood, and Television. He began his career with the Mahesh Bhatt-directed blockbuster hit, Aashiqui in 1990, and later went on to win the very first season of Bigg Boss, back in 2006. Roy was last seen in the 2019 dance thriller film, Cabaret. He made the papers in July 2020, when he spoke up about why he left Bollywood, stating that it was his own choice.
2. Ashutosh Kaushik
Not only did Ashutosh win the 5th season of Roadies, he went on to win Bigg Boss season 2, back in 2007. He has dabbled around in film too, his most recent work being Kismat Love Paisa Dilli (2012). Good news is that he got married during the coronavirus lockdown, so we congratulate him 🙂
3. Vindu Dara Singh
Bigg Boss’s third season winner is Vindu Dara Singh, who hasn’t been around in the spotlight much. Acting in Son of Sardar (2012) and Jatt James Bond (2014) most recently, Vindu Singh is quite regular and popular on social media.
4. Shweta Tiwari
Who doesn’t love Shweta Tiwari?! The first ever female winner of Bigg Boss, back in 2010, Tiwari has starred in iconic Indian soaps, such as Kasauti Zindagi Kay, Parvarish and Begusarai. Most recently, she tested positive for covid-19 and has been in self-isolation, but we know she will recover soon. She’s currently the lead in Mere Dad ki Dulhan.
5. Juhi Parmar
Juhi Parmar won the 2011 season of Bigg Boss and became a household name, along with her starring role of Kumkum in Kumkum – Ek Pyara Sa Bandhan. Most recently, she bravely spoke up about what it’s like to parent with a separated husband and has made adorable videos with her daughter, Samairra.
6. Urvashi Dholakia
Urvashi will always be an icon because she created Komolika, the only character worth watching in Kasauti Zindagi Kay (sorry, Shweta). She showed us her dancing skills in Nach Baliye season 9, and will forever be remembered for being the sassy, entertaining star that she is.
7. Gauhar Khan
Gauhar Khan is a model and actress who won the 7th season of Bigg Boss, and even starred alongside Ranbir Kapoor in Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year. She’s gorgeous and talented, rumoured to be dating Zaid Darbar, and we really hope to see more of her on the big screen.
8. Gautam Gulati
Gulati won Bigg Boss season 8 and then starred in the 2016 Bollywood film, Azhar. Most recently, Gautam Gulati acted in Virgin Bhanupriya as Abhimanyu, opposite Urvashi Rautela’s lead role.
9. Prince Narula
Prince Narula is lucky when it comes to reality TV. Not only has he won the 9th season of Bigg Boss, he also won MTV Roadies 12. His small screen presence also was highlighted through his role of Lucky in Badho Badhu. Rumour has it that he might just join Bigg Boss season 14, but who knows…
10. Manveer Gurjar
Manveer Gurjar is the 2016 Bigg Boss winner, and made the news because he was the first “common man,” the first non-actor, non-model who won the big prize. He was last seen in a project called The Bridge, and we really want to see him more on TV and film.
11. Shilpa Shinde
Known best for her roles in Bhabhi and Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hai!, Shinde emerged as the Bigg Boss season 11 winner. She then forayed into politics by joining the Indian National Congress in 2018.
12. Dipika Kakar Ibrahim
The much loved Dipika, who played Simar in Sasural Simar Ka, won the 12th season of Bigg Boss in 2018 and also married fellow actor Shoaib Ibrahim the same year. They are a favourite couple among fans, and for good reason, their social media presence has garnered thousands of likes.
13. Sidharth Shukla
Sidharth Shukla first entered our homes (and our hearts) by starring in popular TV shows like Babul ke Angan Chootey Na, Balika Vadhu, to name a few. A beloved model and actor, who debuted in Bollywood through Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania, Shukla won the 13th season of Bigg Boss, to nobody’s surprise. Everyone loved him. And why wouldn’t they? Look how gorgeous:
Okay, I guess now we’re ready for Bigg Boss season 14. Wonder who will win this time…
