This was the channel's goodbye note for Bigg Boss fans - again without hinting about a new season:
Bigg Boss, which is inspired from Dutch TV series Big Brother, started in 2006. In 12 years, the longest gap between two seasons was between the first and the second season (19 months) otherwise the showrunners return with a new season every 9-10 months. Also, season 8 was the longest edition, which extended into Halla Bol spin off (of sorts). In India, Bigg Boss has branched out in several languages including Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Marathi.
In season 10, Bigg Boss invited non-celebs to participate in the show and Manveer Gurjar (a non-celeb) won the series. This year too, Bigg Boss opened the gates of his home to non celebs but Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai! actress Shilpa Shinde was declared winner.
The other contestants of season 11 were Hina Khan (first runner-up), producer Vikas Gupta (second runner-up), Hiten Tejwani, Puneesh Sharma, Akash Dadlani, Arshi Khan, Dhinchak Pooja, Bandagi Kalra and Sapna Choudhary among others.
The finale of Bigg Boss 11 was aired over the weekend with Akshay Kumar as the celebrity guest, promoting his upcoming film PadMan.
