'Bigg Boss 17' contestants Abhishek Kumar and Munawar Faruqui made it to the top 2 of the reality show hosted by Salman Khan. While Abhishek did not lift the trophy, he was elated to reach so far on the reality show. On Monday he received a grand welcome from his well-wishers as he returned home as the first runner-up. 

In the videos shared by a paparazzi page, Abhishek Kumar can be seen dancing with a group of boys and girls to the beats of live dhol. Kumar can be seen in an all-black outfit with a flower garland around his neck. At one point, a man also lifted Abhishek and danced with him. His family also joins the celebration. 

Although he was not the winner, Abhishek received immense popularity and spoke candidly about his journey in the reality show starring Salman Khan, terming it a learning experience for his life. Speaking with ANI, he said, "It was a great journey in many ways. I overcame my biggest fear and learned to control my anger and not to trust anyone easily. I learned a lot of things on Bigg Boss."

In the news for many things, Abhishek's past relationship with Isha Malviya constantly remained a topic of discussion during his stint inside the Big Boss house. He stole the limelight with the slap incident in which Abhishek lifted his hand on Samarth Jurel, which was against Bigg Boss house rules. At that time, Bigg Boss stated that the choice will be made at an appropriate moment. Abhishek said, "I learned not to love someone that you destroy yourself. It is important to love yourself."

Despite not winning the contest, Abhishek said he was satisfied with the love he received from his fans. "I came to win the show. But more than winning a trophy it is important to win the heart of the people and I did the same."

'Bigg Boss 17' concluded on Sunday night with comedian-musician Munawar Faruqui being declared the winner of the 17th season. Munawar defeated co-contestant Abhishek Kumar to win the finale. Mannara Chopra made it to top 3 while Ankita Lokhande and Arun Mashetty made it to top 5.
