Shehnaaz Gill asked Elvish, who was carrying two phones, when he was going to get his third phone on a recent episode of her chat program. Then Elvish had told her he already had three phones. “When are you buying the fourth one?” Shenaaz had then inquired.
When the Bigg Boss creators sent him ₹25 lakh, Elvish had said, “Chautha bhi lenge jab Bigg Boss vaale ₹25 lakh bhej denge” (I will purchase the fourth one too). Shocked over his claims of not getting his winning amount yet, Shehnaaz reacted, “Ye toh galat hai (This is wrong).”
June saw the start of Bigg Boss OTT season 2, which featured a number of participants, including Aaliyah Siddiqui, Cyrus Broacha, Jad Hadid, Avinash Sachdeva, Falak Naaz, Palak Purswani, Puneet Kumar, and Pooja Bhatt. Aashika Bhatia and Elvish Yadav had entered as wild cards.
On August 14, Elvish made history by winning Bigg Boss OTT as the first wild card candidate. Despite his late entry into the competition, his widespread following enabled him to overcome rival YouTuber Abhishek Malhan and win the award. In addition to receiving the Bigg Boss OTT trophy and prize money, the victor was also expected to receive lifetime free food.
‘280 million votes’ for Elvish
Elvish claimed to have received about 280 million votes in the final fifteen minutes of the reality show, which may have contributed to his victory, the day after he emerged victorious. Soon after the winner was announced, Elvish’s followers saw a video from his hotel room in which he claimed that a JioCinema official had told him he received “28.”
“Aapko pata hai 15 minutes main kitne vote aaye aapke liye?” was the question posed by him. “Saara scene khatam hua, main andar gaya toh jo Jio ke head hain, jiska poora show hai, maalik jo hai, unhone bola.” Maine poocha kitne, toh unhone kaha ‘280 million’ (I went inside after the show ended to ask the head of JioCinema, the company that handles the show, how many votes they got in a 15-minute period). When I enquired, I was told I had 280 million).”
