Salman Khan announced Karanvira Bohra (Photo credits - twitter) has been voted out. Coming out of the Bigg Boss house and KV puts his bets on Deepak Thakur to emerge as the winner of Bigg Boss 12.
While entering the show, Karanvir promised to be the most entertaining contestant on the show.
However, KV’s journey inside the house didn’t go according to his plan. While the actor claimed his non-participation was a strategy, many believe he was an escapist.
Apart from Bigg Boss, Karanvir has been a part of popular TV shows like Kasautii Zindagii Kay, Shararat, Naagin, Qubool Hai and others.
Rohit Shetty announced the end of Romil Chaudhary's (Photo credits - twitter) journey from the Bigg Boss 12 winner’s race.
He has become the third runner-up of the season.
Romil's journey has been truly memorable on the show. A attorney by profession, the commoner entered the show with his jodidaar Nirmal Singh. Their jodi got eliminated within the initial weeks. But Romil was provided with another chance to re-enter the show as wild card contestant.
Deepak Thakur (Photo credits - wikibio), who had the least votes amongst the top three finalists, hit the buzzer to claim Rs. 20 lakh from the prize money, which is the biggest exit money across all seasons of Bigg Boss.
He has sung for films like Gangs Of Wasseypur and Mukkabaaz. Hailing from Bihar, he relies on his straight talks to go ahead in the game but his desperation to win took over and his funny one-liners were replaced by derogatory remarks.
With this ends the season 12 of Bigg Boss!!!
