Juhi Parmar wins Bigg Boss 5!
The actor beat runner up Mahek Chahal to the trophy and the prize money of Rs 1 crore!
Juhi Parmar delighted Kamaal R Khan fans by winning Bigg Boss 5. While the Deshdrohi filmmaker had predicted weeks ago that Juhi would win the show, it was finally made official on Saturday night. Hosts Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt announced that she had received more votes than her fellow finalists – Amar Upadhyay, Sky, Siddharth Bhardwaj and Mahek Chahal. She was also the only contestant out of the five finalists who had stayed in the house for the entire 98 days. While the guys had entered later, Mahek had been eliminated and was out of the house for a couple of weeks till she returned on a wildcard. Juhi was awarded a trophy and a briefcase with Rs 1 crore, albeit lately! After the hosts announced her name as the winner and the congratulations poured in from other contestants, Salman almost signed off till he was reminded about the trophy and the money. He quickly made a joke out of it and handed them over to Juhi. The actor, on her part, thanked her parents, sister, in-laws and even her dog, but forgot to mention her husband Sachin Shroff till she spotted him by the side of the stage. Despite all the bloopers, everyone – including second runner up Siddharth – managed to wrap up the show on a positive note.
