Hina Khan, Shilpa Shinde, Vikas Gupta and Puneesh Sharma are the final four contenders vying for the winner’s trophy. Their tasks and performance during their three-month stay have created a massive fan following. Celebrity followers of the reality show have also time and again given their opinion on the developments in the game. Some of Hina, Shilpa, Vikas and Puneesh’s celebrity friends have picked side while some of them have more than one favourites. Here’s a look at who’s rooting for whom.
Team Shilpa Shinde:
The Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai actress has many followers on social media. Among her many fans is former Bigg Boss contestant Nitibha Kaul. Speaking to Indian Express, Nitibha said: “Shilpa is my favourite. Her journey has been dynamic. She started on a high pitch with some action, controversies and fights with Vikas. Then she became a motherly figure.”
Manu Punjabi, who participated in Bigg Boss 10 with Nitibha, told Indian Express though he ‘relates’ to Vikas’ journey but the “clean chit winner (of Bigg Boss 11) is Shilpa Shinde.” He also added: “Puneesh does not deserve to be the winner. He does not have it in him.”
Team Vikas Gupta:
Last year’s Bigg Boss winner Manveer Gurjar roots for Vikas. He told news agency IANS: “I find Vikas (Gupta) very positive. I am rooting for Vikas Gupta. I want him to win Bigg Boss. I feel people should support participants who they admire.”
Vikas Gupta’s Bigg Boss 11 co-star Hiten Tejwani told Mumbai Mirror that Vikas deserves to win. “People are saying Shilpa can win because she is very strong and people are supporting her. And there are voters for Hina also so anything can happen but yes, Vikas deserves to win,” he said.
Actor Ravi Dubey is truly impressed with Vikas’ game. Recently he tweeted: “Vikas you are a template of how this game should be played. You have upheld yourself with grace in a place where most lose their ground.” He appealed to his fans to vote for Vikas.
Team Hina Khan:
Hina Khan participated in Khaton Ke Khiladi before this and her colleague from the stunt based reality show Geeta Phogat has been a constant support on social media. She rooted for Hina Khan against trolls and others who condemned her actions in the house. Geeta Phogat has always maintained that Hina deserves to win.
Hina’s Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai co-star Rohan Mehra, who also participated in Bigg Boss last year, also wants her to win this season of the reality game show. “So proud of you today. Doing your task keeping all the sentiments in consideration. Guys vote for Hina Khan now! She deserves the win!” he tweeted.
There are some celebrities, whose loyalties are divided. Like Devoleena Bhattacharjee, star of TV show Saath Nibhaana Saathiya, tweeted a few days back: “I strongly believe Hina Khan or Vikas Gupta should win.”
