With Bigg Boss Season 5 nearing its end, fans are at tenterhooks, wondering who will be the winner! As of now, Amar Upadhyay, Juhi Parmar, Akashdeep Sky Saigal, Siddharth Sid Bhardwaj and Sunny Leone are hot in the race.
Amar Upadhyay has been the most dignified contestant of the show this year, having spent his time on Bigg Boss with a lot of integrity. The “Saas Bahu ka Badshah” as ex-Housemate Pooja Misrra tauntingly tagged him on the show, is a self-made man, whose boy-next-door image has been loved my many.
Amar, who started his television career with Jaya Bachchan’s hugely popular sitcom Dekh Bhai Dekh, carved a niche for himself along with veteran television actors like Farida Jalal, Shekhar Suman and Divya Seth.
From here, he never looked back and has done many television serials and soaps. Amar’s career witnessed a major upswing with Ekta Kapoor’s Kyonki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi; a women-oriented daily soap, which catapulted him to great heights. He left an indelible mark and created history on Indian television when, after his character of Mihir Virani was edged out of the soap, but had to be brought back to life by public demand.
Bigg Boss is Amar’s first attempt at a reality show and one wonders if he can win it. Giving him tough competition, is Juhi Parmar, who shot to fame with the serial Kumkum. Plus, there is Akashdeep Sky Saigal, who played Mihir Virani’s son in Kyonki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and has been in the news for all the wrong reasons on Bigg Boss.
Another contestant Siddharth Sid Bhardwaj, is a winner of MTV Splitsvilla and the youngest of the lot on the show. The 24-year-old actor-model-VJ is a pro at reality television, also having participated in shows like MTV Stripped, Gone In 60 Seconds and Roadies 8.0 too.
The last of the lot is Sunny Leone (born Karen Malhotra), an Indo-Canadian pornographic actress, businesswoman and model. She was named Penthouse Pet of the Year in 2003 and created a furore with Indian conservative audiences, when she entered the Bigg Boss House as a Wild Card Entry a few weeks ago.
As we wait with bated breath to see who the winner would be, families and friends of various contestants, as well as some evicted participants, have been reported to use various antics and tactics outside the House to promote their kin and friends.
While evicted Housemate Mahek Chahal, through her interviews and tweets, has constantly been asking her fans to vote for Siddharth as the winner, their have been media reports of Akashdeep’s sister having the right connections and pulling strings to see her brother as the winner. Meanwhile, another evicted contestant Pooja Bedi has been constantly tweeting in favour of Akashdeep and also predicting that Juhi Parmar would win this season of Bigg Boss.
Astro-numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi, who had joined Pooja Bedi for a prediction on the show, when she hosted Season 2, and had correctly predicted Ashutosh Kaushik as the winner of that season, has now announced that according to numerology, Juhi Parmar will win Bigg Boss 5.
This leaves Amar Upadhyay and Sunny Leone as the only two contestants playing a clean and fair game, without manipulating public opinion outside the House of Scandal.
