With tears in her eyes and an expression of disbelief, actor Shilpa Shinde received the Bigg Boss 11 trophy from superstar host Salman Khan last night. She was in the top two with actor Hina Khan.
While Salman handed her the trophy, he gave the briefcase of money to her mother. She won a total of Rs.44 lakh.
At the start of the episode, when Salman asked Shilpa how she was feeling today, she had said, “I never wanted to be part of Bigg Boss. This was such a different experience for me. I never tried to hide myself and got the opportunity to show who I really am.”
Shilpa’s Bigg Boss journey has been far from ordinary. As it was repeated again and again in the finale, she managed to transform her image completely. What started out as a war with Vikas Gupta, transformed into a work opportunity with him. She came across as a caring and kind human being in the show, who was true to herself.
Of course, her cooking and especially roti making skills did not go unnoticed. In fact, Salman even said that Shilpa had made more than 5000 rotis in the house. As she was often heard saying and others said as well, cooking for so many people every day was no joke. But she did it with perfection.
Shilpa was rewarded at every stage by the love of her fans. While they posted more than three million tweets recently in support of her, breaking all records, they also didn’t disappoint her in the live voting at the finale as well.
It is safe to say that we saw the true Shilpa Shinde, and we loved her!
