The poll results are in, and Hindustan Times readers want Sidharth Shukla to win Bigg Boss . The controversial contestant took 68% of the votes, ahead of Saturday’s season finale.
Following Sidharth in the number two position was Asim Riaz , who garnered % of the votes. In the number three position was Sidharth’s close friend in the show, Shehnaaz Gill, who got 9% of the votes. Rashami Desai got 8% of the votes; Paras Chhabra got 3% of the votes and Arti Singh brought up the tail end, with just 1% of voters declaring her their favorite to win.
Sidharth’s bond with Shehnaaz, his constant tussles, and his enthusiasm to win tasks has made him a firm favorite throughout the season. The fact that host Salman Khan has often shown his support for Sidharth has only worked in his favor. Several former contestants, however, have said that Sidharth winning would set a bad precedent for the show, in which physical violence is not allowed.
Meanwhile, Asim is the underdog of the season. He came into the show without a large fanbase, and made his own mark on the show. He even got an endorsement from wrestler and actor John Cena in the process. He often got into nasty fights with Sidharth, for which he even apologized later on.
