Arjun Bijlani won the stunt-based Colors reality show, Khatron Ke Khiladi season 11. The Miley Jab Hum Tum actor was announced as the victor over Divyanka Tripathi during the grand finale on September 26. While many were happy with the result, some fans were left disappointed.
The finale stunt was performed by the top three. Divyanka, Vishal Singh and Arjun. Vishal quit the stunt midway while the other two completed it. In the end, it was announced that there was merely 20 seconds gap between Arjun and Divyanka’s time, making the former, the winner.

But Divyanka getting the title of ‘first runner-up’ was not acceptable to her fans who said that she was the most consistent player of the season. Even host Rohit Shetty praised her several times for her fearless attitude and the way he performs all the stunts. Fans called it makers’ strategy and also termed it as ‘scripted grand finale.’
While Arjun Bijlani’s fans were celebrating his victory and congratulated him on social media platforms, Divyanka’s fans were enraged. They called it a ‘fixed win’ and dubbed Arjun as an ‘undeserving winner’. ‘Real Winner Divyanka’ started trending on Twitter alongside other hashtags.
