Actor Riythvika, who was thus far considered an underdog at Bigg Boss Tamil Season 2, emerged the winner on Sunday, winning Rs 50 lakh. Riythvika said that her win belongs to everyone and that she intends to be an inspiration to all women.
Actor Aishwarya Dutta, known for her temper tantrums, won the runner-up title. The show, hosted by actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan, started airing on June 17.
Incidentally, Riythvika was up for elimination on the reality TV show on the first week of the season. She had then said that she needed time to warm up to people and that she deserved another chance. According to Bigg Boss rules, week one had no eliminations and so Riythvika, along with three other contestants, were spared that week.
The show’s finalists, from its initial 16 and one wild card entrant, were Riythvika, Janani Iyer, Aishwarya Dutta and Vijayalakshmi Feroz.
The finale was attended by previous star contestants Oviya and Aarav. The contestants of Season 2 were also present.
The other Season 2 contestants were awarded based certain categories. Nithya was named as the ‘best house leader’, while actor Yashika won the ‘best morning dancer’ and the ‘best task performer’. Actor Danny was given the ‘best cook’ award while the show’s only wild card-entrant Vijayalakshmi grabbed the ‘best dressed’ award. Actor Mumtaz without any doubt, won an award for her hygiene and actor Balaji was awarded the best comedian, which he shared with Sendrayan.
This finale episode, too, was not without drama. The exchanges that transpired between Mumtaz and Nithya were curt and heated and had to be brought to an amicable end by Danisha, participant Danny’s wife.
Oviya and Aarav’s presence drew wild cheering from the audience. The couple was popular for the relationship they shared during the reality TV show’s first season. On being asked if Oviya and Aarav were in a relationship in real life, she gave a cryptic reply: “We are in a healthy relationship now.” She also added that people would get see her on the big screen starting next month.
