Bigg Boss is one of the most watched reality show in India. The saw its inception in 2006 and since then has been dominating the television with its unique concept of reality show. In the show, the contestants are kept in a house with certain prohibitions for three months. At the end the person who was most favored by audience and was able to survive 90 days with other contestants without breaking any rules is declared the winner. In this article we would take a look at those winners and see where they are in their lives now.
The first winner of the Bigg Boss franchise is none other than our favorite romantic hero. Although we don’t see Rahul’s face on television now, he has been one of the most memorable actors of his time. The Aashiqui actor showed his calm and composed side throughout the show, which made him a favorite character among the audience. He was mostly not seen fighting or arguing with other housemates and this show of maturity landed him the Bigg Boss trophy.
While everyone hoped that Rahul would make a comeback to the silver screen after his bigg win, the actor had different plans. Rahul made a B-grade movie named Naughty Boy, which turned out to be a disaster. Later, Rahul moved to Australia and started his own business.

This year, Rahul will show up in a Hollywood film called Night and Fog, however, the details for the movie are thin.
Ashutosh gained his fame through the fifth season of Roadies, which made him an in-demand reality show celebrity. Probably that is why, Kaushik appeared on the second season of Bigg Boss. Since Kaushik was already famous because of appearing a winner in Roadies, it was not particularly difficult for him to woo the audience in his favor. Rahul’s popularity won him the Bigg Boss trophy in 2008, however, not unlike Rahul Roy, Kaushik’s fame saw a downfall too.
