Bigg Boss 11 finale Shilpa Shinde beats Hina Khan Vikas Gupta and Puneesh Sharma to become the winner

The four finalists of Bigg Boss 11 (from L to R): Vikas Gupta, Shilpa Shinde, Hina Khan and Puneesh Sharma.

Also expected on the show is Akshay Kumar, who will be promoting his upcoming film, the R Balki-directed Padman. He is expected to announce the winner of the season.

As Firstpost writer Seema Sinha points out in this piece, 'Bigg Boss 11 started with 18 contestants — including 12 commoners and six celebrities — and these ‘characters’ managed to make this season the most dramatic and explosive one. In fact, this edition of the controversial show is considered to be the most successful across its 11-year-long tenure. While the ardent fans of the show were of course hooked onto it, it is said that many of those who never cared about its existence also started following it this year and the show garnered 50 per cent higher ratings on the TRP charts, as compared to the previous season.'

Stay tuned for live updates of the finale.
