Elvish Yadav has emerged as the winner of ‘Bigg Boss OTT 2’ after defeating Abhishek Malhan in the final episode on Monday. He also received a cash prize of ₹25 lakh. After the finale, a video of Yadav celebrating his victory with supporters in a hotel room has appeared online.
In the video, Yadav, wearing a black traditional outfit, shared that a Jio Cinema official told him about receiving 280 million votes within a span of 15 minutes. This happened during the voting period in the ‘Bigg Boss OTT 2’ finale. He said in the video, “After everything was over, I went inside. The person in charge of Jio, who is the head and owner of the whole show, told me, ‘Do you know how many votes you got in 15 minutes?’ I asked how many, and he replied, ‘280 million.'”
The video, posted on Twitter by BiggBoss_Tak, has garnered various reactions from the internet. While some fans celebrated Yadav’s victory and praised him as the first wild card contestant to win the show, others raised doubts about the truth of his claim.
