Pyaar Hai with former contestant Gautam Vig, Deol indulged in funny banter with Khan.
'KKBKKJ's first song was also released during the finale
As promised, superstar Khan also launched Naiyo Lagda during the Bigg Boss finale, featuring him and Pooja Hegde.

Shot in Leh and Ladakh, it has been sung by Shabbir Ahmed, Kamaal Khan, and Palak Mucchal, and composed by Khan's frequent collaborator Himesh Reshammiya.
Khan had his own fun with Bhanot and Ankit Gupta
As is the case each season, Khan didn't leave a chance to pull the contestants' legs even during the final episode! While Bhanot was his target for his "overacting" and "fake love-angle" with former contestant and actor Tina Datta, Ankit Gupta was also pulled up for his "habit of talking a lot," with Khan even taking a subtle dig at Gupta's post-elimination interviews.
