Of course, Shalin accepted the role. He is the first contestant to be evicted at the grand finale. Shalin was evicted with the finalists’ votes. Interestingly, the audiences also voted Shalin the lowest. Thanks to their decision, the finalists added Rs. 10 lakhs to the winner’s prize money.

Ekta had come to Bigg Boss 16 house with Dibakar Banerjee. They took auditions from Priyanka Chahar Chaudhary, Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia, Shiv Thakare, Shalin Bhanot, Sumbul Touqeer Khan, Archana Gautam and MC Stan.
