While we could not verify the authenticity of the video, netizens are citing it to criticise the show for its biasness.
Secret to win a show ? B a bully, use foul language, disrespect people, hit them, lead by no work, cheat people #biggbosswinner .By far the worst season ever. Kudos.. for rewarding the worst. I mean, being nice is overrated @BiggBoss @sidharth_shukla disappointed. But do u care ?— Aakriti Rai (@AakritiRai) February 16, 2020
It was a wonderful experience being part of this awesome journey of @imrealasim in @BiggBoss. I personally thank you all asim fan and squad for making it to international level. Wish you all a great life ahead, you guys were awesome.— MANI RAJ (@mani_raaz) February 16, 2020
SO glad I didn’t stay home to watch the #BiggBoss13Finale LIVE. Quite certain I would’ve thrown a rotten tomato at the screen on seeing #SidharthaShukla win the season. This was #AsimRiaz’s trophy and we all know it! Shame @ColorsTV 🤮— Janice Sequeira (@janiceseq85) February 15, 2020
The competition between the two finalists was a close one and many fans labelled it as a scripted show.
