Mumbai: Small screen vamp Urvashi Dholakia was announced the winner of the sixth season of controversial reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ on Saturday night. Celebrity image consultant Imam Siddique made his mark as the runner-up at the finale, which saw a good dose of Bollywood.
The show came to a star-studded end as Dholakia bagged the Rs5 million (Dh3.35 million) award. She emerged out of the locked house after three months and her family — her mother and two children, stood in the audience to welcome her.
Dholakia, best remembered as Komolika of ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’, was in tears. She is the third female winner of the show in a row, after Shweta Tiwari and Juhi Parmar, who won the fourth and fifth seasons respectively.
Dholakia displayed a strong winning chance ever since she entered the show. She was appreciated for her upfront and honest attitude, was a smart player and always stood up for the right.
She often got involved in verbal spats with Siddique, Sapna Bhavnani and Delnaaz Irani, but she patched up with them, creating amicable relations with everyone on the show.
The finale, hosted by ‘Dabangg’ hero Salman Khan, had celebrities like Prabhudheva, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor in attendance.
It was high on entertainment quotient with Khan’s performance of ‘Pandeyji seeti’ from ‘Dabangg 2’.
Prabhudheva, who had directed the superstar in ‘Wanted’, appeared on the show with choreographer-turned-director Remo D’Souza to promote their upcoming film ‘ABCD: AnyBody Can Dance’. The trio shook a leg together on the music from ‘ABCD...’.
Hashmi promoted his new film ‘Ek Thi Daayan’, while Kapoor and actress Neha Dhupia promoted their new reality comedy show ‘Nautanki: The Comedy Theatre’. Item girl Yana Gupta entered the ‘Bigg Boss’ house in a cage and performed on the song ‘Aa zara’ from ‘Murder 2’.
