MUMBAI: Who would believe the current Bigg Boss season is finally over if the contestants keep making headlines this way! Sidharth Shukla, who was declared the winner of this season surely the one to look out for. Be it his quarrels with co-contestants like Paras Chhabra, Mahira Sharma, Rashami Desai and eventually Asim Riaz or his roller coaster of a relationship with Shehnaaz Gill, which featured love, hate and most importantly drama, Sidharth did it all and was the most talked-about contestant from this season.
Another controversy surrounding the television actor was Salman Khan's biased nature during the 'Weekend Ka War' segments of the show. The host would usually slam the contestants for their wrongdoings that occurred in the past week. However, the public often frowned upon the instances where they would notice Shukla getting let off easy by Khan.
The winner finally decided to address the dispute during a recent interview, where he said, "I really don’t think so (that Salman was biased towards me). If you see, I was nominated twice as punishment. Even if you see the fights, I wasn’t the one who started it. Only when I was nudged or provoked, did I retaliate. Show me one video of mine in which I initiated a fight. Never!"
Shukla also mentioned that there were instances where he faced direct nomination for the week even when he wasn't the person responsible for starting a fight, "If you see that someone else is initiating the fight and you still nominate me twice for eviction... I was in the danger zone. I should talk about bias. People had their support systems coming into the Bigg Boss 13 house and staying with them. I was all alone."
As the television star got declared the winner of the 13th season, there were constant murmurs from the industry where follow ex-contestants like Kishwer Merchant and Kamal R Khan from prior seasons accused Colors channel of being partial towards Shukla and depicting him as a "hero".
