01 February,2015:Â Actor Gautam Gulati on Saturday (Janaury 31) night emerged the winner of reality show â€œBigg Boss Halla Bolâ€, which was an extension of â€œBigg Boss 8â€³. The grand finale saw a mix of celebrities, including host Farah Khan, and item girl Malaika Arora Khan, giving a push to the entertainment quotient.
An overwhelmed Gautam was welcomed with open arms by his friends and family members as host Farah handed him the â€œBigg Bossâ€ trophy along with the prize money of Rs.5 million.
Gautamâ€™s foothold in the show was such that whether it was his fellow contestants or the wildcard contestants â€” none could weaken his presence either in the â€œBigg Bossâ€ house or in the minds of viewers.
He pipped Karishma Tanna, who was the runner-up in the show, followed by Pritam Singh as the second runner-up.
Be it his dance moves, his six-pack abs or his incredible ability to annoy people with his antics â€” Gautam showcased multiple nuances of his personality over the four months of his stay in the show, which kept viewers engaged and entertained consistently.
He found his closest friends in the popular â€˜P3Gâ€™ group â€” Puneet Issar, Pritam Singh and Praneet Bhat. Gautamâ€™s personality also tugged at the heartstrings of fellow contestants Sonali Raut and Diandra Soares.
The grand finale of â€œBigg Boss Halla Bolâ€ brought together a mix of style and eye-catching entertainment. The finalists received personalised makeovers from celebrity stylist Hakim Alim which saw Gautam, Pritam, Karishma and Dimpy Mahajan getting some personalised haircuts and Ali Quli Mirza getting a funky tattoo.
The contestants further came together for a glamorous performance with Malaika inside the â€œBigg Bossâ€ house. Joining the finalists was â€œBigg Bossâ€ aficionado Sonakshi Sinha who put the contestants in the line of fire as she questioned them about the stories that had been doing the rounds all season.
The real drama unfolded when the kingpin of interrogation, Rajat Sharma put them in his famous â€˜kachehri; and cross-examined them about the allegations and accusations that the contestants have faced while inside the house, giving them one final opportunity to settle old scores and disputes.
Throwing in the last twist, Bigg Boss offered the three finalists an opportunity to grab the additional prize money of Rs.2.5 millon, and Pritam seized the moment and quit the race in the last hour.
As the evening drew closer to the end, Farah brought the finalists â€” Karishma and Gautam together one last time before declaring Gautam as the winner of the show, where a mix of celebrity contestants were fighting for survival in a locked and isolated house full of controversies, under the prying eyes of multiple cameras.
