The popular TV actress Shilpa Shinde beat actor Hina Khan to become the winner of Bigg Boss season 11, which aired on Sunday night. Not just the trophy, Shilpa’s won prize money of Rs 44 lakh. The 40-year-old actress seemed the broad choice after being lauded as the most real, caring and entertaining contestant.
Shilpa played the game, aced the tasks and survived in a house full of strangers for 105 days. She never shied away from revealing her side of the story. Hilarious, quirky and full of life, Shilpa soon proved to be one of the hardest contenders of this season.

While Shilpa was the favorite of the night, a considerable amount of attention was also on Hina Khan, who was on the list of top two contestants. Puneesh Sharma was the first contestant eliminated in top four finalists while Vikas Gupta was the second finalist to leave the house, which was hosted by Salman Khan.
From a woman who was intimidated to be banned from ever working in television to the winner of Bigg Boss 11, the actor believes that life has changed for good. Eyes glinting with tears of joy, Shilpa said it had been an incredible journey. I have gone through a lot and leaving it all behind; I am only hoping that my life will be filled with a new ray of happiness.
I have never been a supporter of Bigg Boss, and it seems surreal holding this award at the moment. Staying in the house locked up with no connection to the real world was a different experience. I am taking this as a new lease of life, and I am sure only good things will happen to me now.
Going over the three months, she spent inside the house; the most bitter moments were due to Arshi Khan and Akash Dadlani. When talking about first runner-up Hina Khan, Shilpa said she would not desire to meet Hina ever again in her life.
It is not strange that Bigg Boss always has some twists in tales, before announcing the winner of season 11 voting lines were made live for 10 minutes, which gave fans of Hina and Shilpa a chance to shower more votes in favor of their favorite contestants.
Always By the fans, Always For the fans.
