We all saw how it was a neck-to-neck fight between Manveer Gurjar and Bani J in the finale of Bigg Boss 10 last night. Especially when you know for a fact Manveer had begun his journey just as one of the commoners while Bani J was already famous with a massive fan following when she entered the show. Ask Manveer as to how does he feel about defeating someone as popular as Bani J, now that he has won the show and he admits, “I knew Bani had a very big fan following. Earlier, I was scared of Bani’s fan following. But then as people started coming inside the house, they started appreciating me and my confidence started growing. And when I saw the kind of people that had assembled at the mall when we were taken there, I was moved by the love that people were giving me. That’s when I understood that the audience is loving me.”, said Manveer in his recent interview with TOI.

In the same interview, Manveer even recalled to the time when he was on a mission to take revenge from Bani. He said, “During the first week I was nominated because of Bani. I felt bad at that time. Later when she became the captain, she gave me a punishment and made me clean the dishes. That’s when I had thought that I will also become the captain one day and make her do something like this.”

However, having said that, today, Manveer is all praises for Bani J as he feels she is setting the brightest example for every woman in the society out there. From being scared to respecting her for what she is, Manveer said, “A girl like Bani is a very rare sight. A girl with lots of tattoos, muscles and abs is very rare. I feel that Bani is an inspiration for many girls as she is sending out a message that ‘Ladkiyan aisi bhi hoti hai’.” Indeed, we can’t agree more with Manveer on this. I mean, although Bani hasn’t won this season but she’s still emerged as the winner in terms of conducting herself with so much confidence and much respect.

While Manveer Gurjar walked away with the trophy. Bani J was the second runner up of Bigg Boss 10, the finale that ended on a power packed note last night.
