Bigg Boss 13 was one of the most controversial seasons of the popular reality show. The season concluded with Sidharth Shukla coming out of the house as the winner and Asim Riaz as the runner up. Naagin 4 actor Rashami Desai was in the third place. It is without a doubt that Siddharth, Asim, and Rashami all managed to create a new fanbase for themselves during the run of Bigg Boss. This made many wonders if Siddharth Skuhla's win came due to the showrunners rigging the process. Many believed that Asim Riaz was more deserving of the first prize.
However, both Asim Riaz and Sidharth Shukla have denied any such rumours. Siddharth Shukla in a recent interview said that he understands why many fans were disappointed but the show is completely dependent on votes from fans. He said, "I really would not know, some really upset people must have said. But that’s all good and that doesn't make a difference. I have been through the journey. There are some people who feel bad about it. Everybody has their section of people out there rooting and vouching for someone. So when the person they are rooting for does not win they come up with things like these. But they are completely baseless, but I know there are facts that go into this and once you know, it is fine.”
Previously Asim Riaz also said that Sidharth Shukla's victory came because he received more votes and not due to any rigging or internal politics.
