Mumbai, Dec 28 IANS | 10 months ago

Model-turned-actress Gauhar Khan Saturday won the seventh season of "Bigg Boss" and took home the prize money of Rs.50 lakh and the trophy. She said now her aim is to attain superstardom in showbiz.


Gauahar, seen in films like "Game" and "Ishaqzaade", wishes to gain superstardom after the show.

"I wish this platform helps me gain superstardom. There is a very different feeling when people start calling you a superstar. And that's what I want," Gauahar told IANS.

The grand finale was held at Lonavala, a hill station near Mumbai, where the "Bigg Boss" house was put up.

This is the fourth consecutive season that a woman has been crowned the winner after Shweta Tiwari, Juhi Parmaar and Urvashi Dholakia winning the fourth, fifth and sixth seasons respectively.

In the final round, the competition was between Gauhar and Tanisha. And their mothers were at the venue to support them.

Other finalists, who were vying for the title, were Ajaz Khan and wrestler Sangram Singh.

The grand finale turned out to be an extravagant affair with entertaining performances by Salman and the contestants.

Funnyman VJ Andy too took to the stage to entertain the audience with his performance on the title track of "Besharam". He was accompanied by Sangram and Ajaz.

Even love birds, Tanisha-Armaan and Gauahar-Kushal Tandon's romantic act was shown at the gala.

The seventh season of the show went on air Sep 15 on Colors. It started with 14 celebrities, and later, five additional celebrities made wild card entries at different points during its run.

Unlike the other seasons, this time the house was initially divided into heaven and hell sections where the contestants were treated differently. Another living space called the Caravan, a motor vehicle, was introduced in the show.

But like every other season, even this one was embroiled in controversy. Armaan was arrested for allegedly assaulting British singer-actress Sofia Hayat. Her complaint was the result of an argument that broke out between the two and Armaan ended up hitting Sofia with a mop, which left her injured.

Other controversies included Kushal being dismissed from the house due to his bad behaviour and Gauahar following him out and then returning.

The season also saw Salman being blamed by the contestants as well his fans for being biased towards some of the contestants, including Tanisha.
