Aari Arjuna was announced as the winner of Bigg Boss Tamil Season 4 on Sunday. Aari beat Balaji Murugadoss to lift the trophy of Bigg Boss Tamil 4.

The fourth season of Bigg Boss Tamil was launched in October 2020 with actor-host Kamal Haasan welcoming 16 contestants to the show.

The makers of the show ensured that the safety guidelines of WHO were followed during the shoot.

Rio was the reason behind the majority of light and laugh-out-loud moments in this season. However, he was also the most confused player of this season.

Ramya Pandian's journey

Ramya Pandian was touted as one of the strong contenders for the top prize when she entered the show. And it turned out to be correct. Ramya became notorious on the show for saying darndest things without losing her smile. However, the heavyweight contender lost her sheen after an ego clash with Aari. She spent most of her time in the house worrying about Aari, instead of building on her strengths. And as a parting tip, Kamal asks her not to sweat too much over trolling she might face on social media.

Somashekhar's journey

The mild-mannered Somashekhar remained in everyone's good books. He was a friend to all in the house. And perhaps his diplomacy affected his winning chances. He found comfort in gangs, and felt kind of lost when he had to be on his own. He was content with playing a supporting role, and seldom showed his desire to become a lead player.

One of the finalists of the show, Ramya Pandian is known for her role in director Raju Murugan’s critically acclaimed movie Joker. But, she became an internet sensation last year, when her pictures from a photoshoot went viral. Another finalist, Somashekar is a mixed martial artist. During the launch, he said that Bigg Boss Tamil will mark a new beginning in his life.

Finalist Rio Raj is a TV host and actor. His popular work on TV includes shows like Kana Kaanum Kaalangal Kalooriyin Kathai, Kaloorikalam, Your Attention Please, Coffee Tea Area, Suda Suda Chennai, Free Ah Vidu and Saravanan Meenatchi Season 3. Aari Arjuna is known for his films like Aadum Koothu, Rettaisuzhi, Nedunchaalai and Maalai Pozhudhin Mayakathilaey.
