After cruising through various tasks, challenges, and quarrels inside the Bigg Boss house for 140 days, the 39-year-old actor lifted the coveted trophy and took home Rs. 50 lakh cash prize.
However, many alleged the show was biased and called Sidharth the "fixed winner".
Apart from Sidharth, fellow contestants Asim Riaz, Paras Chhabra, Rashami Desai, Aarti Singh, and Shehnaz Gill, had also made it to this season's finals. After several rounds of elimination, Asim and Sidharth made it to the top two.
One of the strongest and most controversial contenders of this season from the very beginning, Sidharth had a roller coaster ride throughout the show.
He remained in the news for his perpetual arguments with fellow contestants, his emotional bond with Shehnaaz, and his constant fights with Asim.
Moreover, even the show's makers and host Salman Khan were accused of being partial towards Sidharth.
There was fierce competition between Sidharth and Asim, throughout the show. Even on the final day, the two ended up sharing the podium for the final announcement by Salman, but eventually Sidharth was declared the winner, while Asim became the first runner-up.
However, Sidharth's win has not gone down well with many followers of the show, with some saying that the decision was pre-planned.
Many viewers said that Asim was a more deserving candidate, and even called Sidharth the "fixed winner" of the reality show.
After he lifted the trophy, Siddharth commented on it and said that it's really sad that people questioned his win.
In an interview with The Indian Express, Sidharth said, "I won the title after a grueling journey and when someone questions that, it's really sad."
"I feel sorry for people who have such thoughts. If you have followed the season, you would know that it hasn't been an easy time for me...you cannot keep answering every question thrown at you," he added.
Talking about the highlights and regrets from his journey on the show, Sidharth said, "Winning the trophy does feel special and as for regrets, I really don't know. You have regrets when you don't do something well. But I managed to win the show."
