MC Stan won Bigg Boss 16 after defeating Shiv Thakare and Priyanka Chahar Choudhary. Kamya Punjabi has reacted to his victory.
Bigg Boss 16 ended yesterday with rapper MC Stan lifting the trophy. Shiv Thakare, his mandali mate, was the first finalist, and Priyanka Chahar Choudhary was the second.

He used to keep quiet and avoid getting involved in anything. However, in the second half of the show, he became interested and became an integral part of the mandali. MC Stan, the season’s alleged “underdog,” went on to win the show. Kamya Punjabi, who was watching the show intently, has now commented on it.
Kamya stated a few weeks ago that for a change, an outsider like MC Stan should win. She is overjoyed that her wish has been granted. She expressed her heartfelt support for his victory in a tweet. She also stated that his victory demonstrates that one does not need to engage in unnecessary brawls to win Bigg Boss.
