Talking about her winning moment, the actor said, “I was so excited that my words came true. And I am really proud about both [Sreesath and Dipika] of our journey. While the whole house was against us, we played the game with all our might. We also maintained our personality from day one. And of course winning the trophy makes me really excited. When I saw Shoaib (husband Shoaib Ibrahim) and my sister-in-law Saba so happy and emotional, I couldn’t hold my tears.”

“My bond with Sreesanth has been the best thing I gained from Bigg Boss 12,” she added. Dipika also shared her plans of using the prize money and said that she did the show so that she can buy a house for her mother-in-law. As for the trophy, it is for her sister-in-law.
