The grand finale of "Bigg Boss 9" saw Prince Narula becoming the winner of the show, beating Rishabh Sinha and Mandana Karimi. Although Prince lifted the "Bigg Boss 9" trophy, fans on Twitter have been calling Mandana the "real winner", and some have even said the show was "fixed".

Mandana, one of the strongest contestants in "Bigg Boss 9", became the second runner-up in the show. However, fans on Twitter have been expressing their love and support for the "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3" actress, calling her the "real winner".

There was much speculation regarding the winner of "Bigg Boss 9" before the grand finale, which suggested that Mandana would win the show. Nevertheless, after she became the second runner-up, fans on Twitter have been expressing shock and disappointment.

Earlier, some speculative reports said Mandana would get evicted in a surprise elimination just before the finale, but it turned out to be Rochelle Rao who got eliminated, becoming the third runner-up. Some fans have pointed out that these rumours affected Mandana's vote count at the last hour. Some fans even said the show was "fixed", claiming Prince's victory was pre-planned.

Apparently, a picture on Facebook went viral in which Prince was seen holding the "Bigg Boss 9" trophy around half an hour prior to the winner being announced on TV. This led to fans alleging that the show was "fixed" and venting  their ire on Twitter. Check out some of the fans' tweets, calling Mandana the "real winner" and alleging that show to be "fixed":
