Alright then, the not so happening season of Colors' show Bigg Boss has come to an end. And while most might believe that the winner gets it all, we tell you it is the other way around...
Bigg Boss 9 contestants Mandana Karimi, Rishabh Sinha and Rochelle Rao should celebrate their loss. In fact, the trio should not just congratulate Prince Narula for becoming the winner this year, they should also thank him for beating them in this race. We're sure by now you are thinking if I've gone bonkers? Well, read on and you will know why do I say so...
Jog your memory to to the very beginning of Bigg Boss and you will find the answer to my not so sane statements. Going by the track record of Bigg Boss winners, one thing is sure that this victory is a jinx! Yep, every single winner of this season must have rejoiced and hoped that they will either revive their careers or then bag a ticket to Bollywood, if nothing else that they will create a decent space for themselves in the entertainment industry. Alas! None of the winners in the history of Bigg Boss have been able to attain this.
Rahul Roy was the winner of this high voltage reality show's very first season, apart from a few B-grade movies the Aashiqui hero has not managed to make any mark post BB. Like Prince, reality show contestant Ashutosh Kaushik won over the Bigg Boss viewers, but we didn't really see his career take off. Vindu Dara Singh's controversial victory in the show's third season did not really earn him work, the actor continued with his cameos and went on to add another few reality shows under his belt.
The ladies ruled the roost as far as Colors this show was concerned for the next four years. While TV actresses Juhi Parmar and Urvashi Dholakia decided to go the family way after their win (blame it on the lack of work), Shweta Tiwari and Gauahar Khan managed to survive, but nothing they did was what one would call a 'hit' or 'blockbuster'. Last season Gautam Gulati won Bigg Boss, but just like to former winners despite making much noise after the win and piggy banking on gimmicky quotes about his crush Alia Bhatt and the show's host Salman Khan this upcoming Bollywood hero didn't get the kind of work his BB fans were expecting. His next big project is Azhar, a biopic on Indian skipper which will see Emraan Hashmi in the lead, while GG will essay Ravi Shastri's role. We will not be surprised if he will be nothing but a sidekick to Hashmi in this movie.
Coming back to where we began, like all his Bigg Boss predecessors (read:winners) Prince too might not really benefit from this victory. And we hear a very popular Bollywood actor who is keeping a close tab on the show is said to have told the runner up this year to thank his stars. This hero apparently felt that the win would have cost this aspiring B-townie his career. Clearly insiders believe that this win is just a few minutes (days/months) of fame and no route to make it big in entertainment. And the track record is just a solid proof, isn't it?
