Take your pick
With the Colors’ reality show Bigg Boss nearing its end, everybody is on a guessing spree about the winner of this controversial show—who will walk away with a crore of rupees as prize money? With five contenders for the title—Amar Upadhyay, VJ Sidharth, Juhi Parmar, Mahek Chahel, Sky aka Akashdeep Saigal, we asked stars to pick their winners. Read on…
I think Amar, Sid or Juhi will win. Sky won’t win at all because he wasn’t diplomatic. Amar is the strongest of them as he was diplomatic and played the game well. It is all about being smart in the house and he has stayed clear from most controversies and therefore might win Bigg Boss. The rest, I guess, we will just wait and watch.
