Bigg Boss 11’s second runner-up Vikas Gupta bagged the prize money of ₹6 lakhs. The producer decided to divide the prize money between two BB11 contestants as a sweet gesture.
Vikas won hearts with his stint on the show and gained the title of a Mastermind. He bonded with almost everyone in the house and many rooted for him to win Bigg Boss 11.
Recently, during an interaction with a leading daily, Vikas revealed his emotional side. The producer who bagged INR 6 lakhs decided to divide it between the contestants Arshi Khan and Jyoti Kumari.
Talking about it, Vikas stated, “Yes, I will give them ₹3 lakh each. Jyoti stood by me like a rock when the whole house was against me. She shouted at each one of them saying, ‘No one will say a word to my Vikas bhai’. I got so much courage from a 20-year-old girl, who hails from a small town in Bihar. That incident gave me enough strength to survive in the house. Arshi, too, was protective of me. She cared more about me as a friend than the show.”
