Bigg Boss 13 is all set to take in popular names from the showbiz and lock them up in the luxurious house of Bigg Boss. While BB has always been about celebrities, it was from past few seasons that the reality show got some new twists with the inclusion of commoners as contestants. However, for the 13th season, the show is reportedly back to its original format of having only celebrity contestants.
The show premieres tonight (September 29) and Salman Khan will be back as the host for the 10th time. But before the contestants begin their fight for the title, let us take a look at the previous winners of Bigg Boss and what are they doing now.
Season 1- Rahul Roy
Rahul Roy shot to fame for his performance in Aashiqui. He was declared the winner of Bigg Boss season 1 and was last seen in ZEE5's Cabaret in January 2019.
Season 2- Ashutosh Kaushik
Before Ashutosh won Bigg Boss, he had already held the title of MTV Roadies Season 8. He did try his luck in Bollywood but wasn't successful. Reportedly, he is the owner of a restaurant now.
Season 3- Vindu Dara Singh
Vindu Dara Singh has not been in much limelight after the show. The actor was last seen in Jatt James Bond (2014). He was also in headlines for his alleged involvement in IPL betting scandal.
