It is Shilpa Shinde who has emerged winner of Bigg Boss 11. The former Angoori Bhabhi of Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai beat the likes of Hina Khan, Vikas Gupta and Puneesh Sharma to claim the winner's trophy and pocket the prize money.

Offering tough competition to Shilpa in the race, commoner Puneesh Sharma was the first to be evicted on Sunday night. He was followed by Vikas Gupta, who received the least number of votes from the viewers.

Hina Khan, who was being considered as one of the strongest contestants inside the house, became the runner-up of Bigg Boss 11 while Shilpa beat her by a huge margin of votes.

The grand finale saw Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar sharing the stage amid rumours of their alleged fallout after Salman backed out of their association in their collaborative historical project on the Battle Of Saragarhi.

Shilpa Shinde kicked off the first day inside the Bigg Boss 11 by locking horns with Vikas Gupta but they eventually sorted out their differences.

She was hated by viewers during the initial days, but went on to become the most-loved contestant inside the house. From taking over the kitchen and making food for everyone to nominating herself to save her friends, she gained immense respect from Bigg Boss 11 viewers, who voted her as the winner of the season.
