The verdict is out - Bindu Madhavi has been crowned the winner of Bigg Boss Non-Stop, the OTT version of the Telugu reality TV series. The popular South Indian actress has been felicitated with the grand honor and is now the first-ever female contestant to be declared the winner of the Telugu series hosted by superstar Akkineni Nagarjuna. Bindu won the elusive and prestigious trophy along with a cheque of Rs. 50 lakhs, followed by Akhil Sarthak coming in as the runner-up and Shiva taking the third place, while Ariyana Glory quit the contest after accepting a cheque for Rs. 10 lakhs. Furthermore, Shiva was awarded an entry pass for the upcoming Bigg Boss Telugu season 6 edition, which is expected to premiere in a few months' time.
Bindu Madhavi kicked off her stint in Bigg Boss Non-Stop and made her entry as a 'Challenger' contestant. She had earlier participated in Bigg Boss Tamil season 1 as a wild card contestant emerging as the fourth runner-up on the show and was incidentally the first-ever wild card entry in the history of the Tamil version. Bindu later made a return to the Telugu entertainment industry in the BB Non-Stop house and made headlines in the first week of her entry on the show after she got into a conflict with Nataraj over the distribution of food, including a tiff with Akhil Sarthak during a contest.
Fans have been showering their love for Bindu for her mental strength and her approach to the various challenges she had undertaken during the course of her stay in the Bigg Boss Non-Stop house. During the last episode, the actress stated that she treated the time in the BB non-stop house as the biggest life lesson in her life and expressed her gratitude to Bigg Boss for paving the path to proving her strength during challenging instances.
