Karanvir Bohra was the first to be knocked out from the show accompanied by Romil Chaudhary. The top three contestants Dipika, Sreesanth and Deepak were asked to choose between the money bag and trophy. Deepak chose the money bag, which had Rs 20 lakh and quit the show. Salman said that he made a wise decision as he had received the lowest votes among top three contestants.
“I was so excited that my words came true. And I am really proud about both of our journey. While the whole house was against us, we played the game with all our might. We also maintained our personality from day one. And of course winning the trophy makes me really excited. When I saw Shoaib (husband Shoaib Ibrahim) and my sister-in-law Saba so happy and emotional, I couldn’t hold my tears”, said the actress.
Bigg Boss 12 would definitely be remembered for the sis-bro jodi. Sharing that she never planned to find such a deep connection, Kakar said, “My bond with Sreesanth has been the best thing I gained from Bigg Boss 12. We went through our share of ups and downs. And like any relationship, ours also grew with time. Also, when you are in such a competitive environment, you are always on the threshold of emotions. I must add that both of us equally invested in this bond and it is definitely for keeps. I think I will miss our cute banters and fun moments the most.”
