Bigg Boss 16 Winner MC Stan On Being Called ‘Undeserving’ Winner: ‘I Honestly Don’t Care’

New Delhi: Rapper MC Stan became the winner of the reality show Bigg Boss 16 beating Shiv Thakare and Priyanka Chahar Choudhary to take home the trophy of Rs 31.8 lakh prize money, and a car.  The rapper, who didn’t show much interest in the show for a major part, was applauded for being real and raw throughout the season.

Talking about the moment when he was announced the winner he said he couldn’t believe that he has won the show.

“I couldn’t believe that my name was announced (as a winner), and I still can’t believe this has happened. Rather, when Salman bhai lifted my hand, I felt he was joking. I was looking at bhai, my mom, dad, Shiv and towards the ‘mandali’, I didn’t know how to react,” the Pune-based rapper told PTI.

MC Stan further said both he and Thakare had dreamt of being in the top two. When the moment finally arrived, he was thrilled.

“I was getting goosebumps when the two of us were there in the house. For me, to reach this far is a big thing. The happiness is a bit more after I was declared the winner. But all this is human tendency, it is natural to feel this way,” he added.

A section of the audience felt that he was an ‘undeserving’ winner as he didn’t contribute much to the show and always wanted to quit. Reacting to this, MC Stan told Indian, “I honestly don’t care about them, I don’t know the difference mama. I actually like people who get jealous. It’s a very natural emotion in a human being. One just needs to accept that this wasn’t meant for them. Just like most fans, I am also shocked but I do feel I deserved to win.”

MC Stan, whose real name is Altaf Shaikh, is also a lyricist, music producer and composer who became popular after the release of his song ‘Khuja Mat’ in 2019. He is also known for tracks such as ‘Basti Ka Hasti’, ‘Tadipar’, and ‘Gender.’
