Urvashi wins 'Bigg Boss 6', weeps tears of joy

Mumbai, Jan 12 (IANS) Small screen's popular vamp Urvashi Dholakia was Saturday night announced the winner of the sixth season of controversial reality show "Bigg Boss". Celebrity image consultant Imam Siddique made his mark as the runner-up at the finale, which saw a good dose of Bollywood.

The show came to a star-studded end as Urvashi bagged the Rs.50 lakh award. She emerged out of the locked house after three months, and her family - her mother, and two children, stood in the audience to welcome her.

Urvashi, best remembered as Komolika of "Kasautii Zindagii Kay", was in tears. She is the third female winner of the show in row, after Shweta Tiwari and Juhi Parmar, who won the fourth and fifth seasons, respectively.

"Thank you," she said upon her exit.

She was among the 15 contestants who entered the "Bigg Boss" house in October 2012, and managed to stay in the top four, with Imam, Sana Khan and Niketan Madhok occupying the remaining positions respectively.

Urvashi displayed a strong winning chance ever since she entered the show. She was appreciated for her upfront and honest attitude, was a smart player and always stood up for the right.

She often got involved in verbal spats with Imam, Sapna Bhavnani and Delnaaz Irani, but she patched up with them, creating amicable relations with everyone on the show.

The finale, hosted by "Dabangg" hero Salman Khan, had celebrities like Prabhudheva, Emraan Hashmi and Tusshar Kapoor in attendance.

It was high on entertainment quotient with Salman's spicy performance on popular number "Pandeyji seeti" from his movie "Dabangg 2".

Prabhudheva, who had directed the superstar in "Wanted", appeared on the show with choreographer-turned-director Remo D'Souza to promote their upcoming film "ABCD: AnyBody Can Dance". The trio shook a leg together on the music from "ABCD...".

Emraan used the platform to promote his new film "Ek Thi Daayan", while Tusshar and actress Neha Dhupia came to promote their new reality comedy show "Nautanki: The Comedy Theatre".

The former contestants of the current season of the show also entertained viewers. While celebrity hairstylist Sapna Bhavnani and Bhojpuri actor Dinesh Yadav, Vishal Karwal and Karishma Kotak performed a water act together, Vrajesh Hirjee went inside the house and mocked the contestants.

Item girl Yana Gupta entered the "Bigg Boss" house in a cage and performed on the song "Aa zara", from "Murder 2". Popular TV actresses Rati Pandey, Keerti Nagpure, Pooja Gor and Rashmi Desai also performed on the show.

Unlike previous seasons, the sixth season of "Bigg Boss" promised to be 'Alag che' (different), by catering to a family audience. Though it lived up to the promise to a considerable extent, the show indeed saw some ugly spats between Rajev Paul and Imam, and Delnaaz and Urvashi.
