New Delhi :
Was the Bigg Boss 13 Grand Finale a ‘fixed’ event? Was Siddharth Shukla declared winners despite ‘lesser votes’? Bigg Boss fans were in shock when a Twitter user claiming to be an employee of the Colors TV made these shocking statements. The woman, who identifies herself as Feriha, triggered a massive controversy in the world of TV entertainment with her February 15 tweet. However, to quell the rumours, the channel has finally responded. Amid the raging debate over ‘fixed’ Bigg Boss finale, Colors TV has issued an official statement to set the record straight.
Posting the statement on micro-blogging site, Colors TV said that, “We at COLORS would like to clarify that the individual who goes by the name Feriha (@ferysays) is not employed or associated with our channel contrary to what she has stated in her profile. The claims made by her against our channel, our spokespersons and talent are unfounded and not true. We request our fans and viewers to not believe any information coming from such inauthentic and unauthorized sources.”
In fact, Bigg Boss 13 runner-up Asim also slammed the speculations and said that the claim was totally incorrect. "Kuch bhi aisa nahin hai. Fixed kuch bhi nahin hota... Audience ke pyaar ki wajah se main yahaan tak pahuncha aur wo (Sidharth) bhi jeeta hai. So, fixed kuch nahi hai... it's just real. Jo hai saamne hai toh aisa kuch bhi nahin tha. (Nothing of that sort happened. Nothing was fixed.. I reached this far and Sidharth won the show thanks to all the love of the audience. So, nothing is fixed... it's just real. (whatever happened is there before your eyes and nothing of that sort happened)," IANS quoted Asim as saying.
It all started when the women claimed the she quit her job at the channel as it was keen on making Siddharth Shukla the Bigg Boss 13 winner despite ‘less votes’. She had claimed that she couldn’t deal with the ‘biasness’. In her tweet, she wrote, ‘’I have decided to quit my job at @ColorsTV. I had a tremendous time working with the creative department but I can't demean myself being part of a fixed show. The channel is keen on making Siddharth Shukla the Winner despite less votes. Sorry, I can't be part of it. #BiggBoss’’.
