After the big finale on Sunday, July 3, actor-dancer Dilsha Prasannan was named the winner of Bigg Boss Malayalam 4. At the conclusion, host Mohanlal gave Dilsha the trophy and the 50 lakh rupee cash award.
The first finalist of the season, Dilsha received the most votes out of the remaining six competitors. Riyas Salim, Blesslee, Lakshmi Priya, Sooraj Thelakkad, and Dhanya Mary Varghese were the other five competitors.
Who is Dilsha Prasannan?
Indian actor and dancer Dilsha Prasannan primarily performs on Malayalam television. She was born in Calicut, Kerala, India, on July 25, 1991. She completed her education at the Government Mappila Vocational Higher Secondary School before completing the Frankfinn Institute’s air hostess programme.
She began her dance career in 2014 with the first season of the dance reality series D4 Dance, finishing in fifth place. She then took part in D4 Dance Reloaded, where she and Rinosh Surendran were named champions. She began performing in the Malayalam television industry in 2016 with the Kana Kanmani serial.

Dilsha became the first “female” contestant to win a reality competition with her victory, setting a new record for the programme. Former participants performed during the grand finale broadcast, which also featured comic routines by Suraj Venjaramoodu and his crew.
With the slogan “new normal,” the show debuted in March. The public and devoted viewers took to it right away. In the fourth season, there were 20 competitors from various backgrounds.

Dilsha thanked the viewers of the show after getting the trophy. As per the showrunners, she had received 39 per cent of the votes out of the six final contenders. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the previous two seasons of Bigg Boss Malayalam were cancelled before the season finale. The second season debuted in January 2020 but was put on hold in March of that same year owing to the coronavirus outbreak. No one was named the winner of the competition.
Thanking her fans for their immense support, Dilsha said, “I wondered whether I will survive the 100 days on this show. For many days I couldn’t make sense of what I wanted to do on the show. But, I decided to just be myself. And I had a lot of support.”
