While some inmates of the past seasons of Bigg Boss are remembered just for their antics, affairs and screaming, there are some who are remembered as the winners of their seasons.
Although when they won they were greeted with much fanfare, there wasn’t much that was heard about them, post the show.
So, if you often wonder about their whereabouts, we give you a lowdown on what the last six winners of the reality show have been busy doing all this while.
After a long hiatus, the Aashiqui (1990) fame actor is now making his Bollywood comeback with psychological thriller To Be Or Not To Be. “I said yes to this film because I was really looking for a strong storyline to make my comeback. I play a mad character,” says Roy.
Talking about starting anew, he says, “I’ve realised that I can’t take myself for granted. I’ll strive to regain my respectability and position in the industry. I wish to now play my cards wisely.”
Post winning the show, Kaushik, who had also won Roadies 5.0 in 2007, was part of films such as Zila Ghaziabad (2013) and Shortcut Romeo (2013).
This small-town guy from Saharanpur was also seen on a few episodes of various TV shows such as Comedy Circus — Chinchpokli to China and Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, among others.

She then took a break. Now, she says she has started a venture on foreign shores. “There are lot of things that are keeping me busy, but you will have to wait before I make any official announcements. I don’t like to brag. All I can reveal is that I have set up a venture abroad which I have always ­wanted to do. I believe that I have a life beyond acting, and I also like it that way.”
She played Sweety on the TV show Parvarrish — Kuchh Khattee Kuchh Meethi till August 2013 and also participated in the dance reality show Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa. In July 2013, Shweta married her boyfriend of three years, Abhinav Kohli.

After winning the show, Vindu Dara Singh did small roles in movies like Housefull and Son of Sardar. He was also seen on some TV shows. In 2013, his name got embroiled in the IPL ­betting scandal.

The actor, best known for playing Kumkum in the TV show Kumkum — Ek Pyara Sa Bandhan, chose to spend time with her family, post ­winning the show.
Juhi, who is ­married to TV actor Sachin Shroff, gave birth to a ­daughter in Jan last year. “My daughter Samaira is ­keeping me completely busy.
