While Dipika won the Big Boss 12 trophy and a cash prize of Rs 30 lakhs, former cricketer Sreesanth became the runner-up of the Salman Khan hosted show. Her relationship with Sreesanth was often questioned as many thought it was her strategy to stay strong in the show.

She said she would have been equally happy if Sreesanth, who she considered her brother, had won the show. While Dipika fought her own battles, she also stood by Sreesanth through thick and thin. As expected by the fans, the last two standing in the game were - Sreesanth and Dipika Kakar and there was a competition of sorts between them.

Disappointed viewers have been accusing the makers of Bigg Boss 12 of being biased since the beginning and making Sreesanth the victor of the season.

She was seen crying and often complaining that people in the house did not understand her and called her "fake". "He taught me many things", the 32-year old told IANS.

She's like a sister to me and a very good friend. Dipika is beaming after her win. There won't be any character portrayal but only the real Dipika.

Having stayed in the Bigg Boss house for three months with 90 cameras, Dipika said her stint on the show has only made her a confident person.

Often accused of being "fake", Dipika proved her critics - both inside the house and out of it - wrong by winning the hearts of her fans, to take home the winner's trophy and the winning cheque. The actor was even tagged as the most dignified woman by host Salman Khan.

There are nearly 20 participants in this season including wild card entries. Dipika married Shoaib earlier this year. The actress who is best known as Simar from the hit long-running show Sasural Simar Ka was last seen in JP Dutta's Paltan before she entered the reality show.
