Delhi boy Faizan Mir wins Big Switch season 3
Participants have always had a great time in UTV Bindass’ show The Big Switch. And the blissful journey continued in its latest season, Big Switch season 3- Life without daddy ka paisa as well. After ten grueling weeks, the series has finally come to an end. From cleaning windows of high rises to mopping floors at a high-end restaurant, the contestants of season 3 have indeed had an awe-inspiring experience. All those bratty ways have given way to an experience filled with lessons for life, value for money and hardships which commoners face every day to earn their living.
And the contestant who has emerged as the winner is Faizan Mir. A 21 year old young boy, born to a super rich dad based in Delhi, Mir has always been surrounded with a fleet of servants. Furthermore, he has been the quintessential rich spoilt brat who loves partying and splurging money and the only reason he agreed to come on Big Switch 3 was to win his big wish, a blank cheque promised to him by his father. Post the show, he underwent a switch, realizing the importance of having one’s own identity instead of resting on the laurels of one’s family. He experienced how it feels to be on the other side where there is no shortcut to success. From being a salesman at a popular mall, to being a masseur, Faizan has paved his way through what seemed impossible at first. Such was the impact on this young man that when his father handed him his “big wish”, he undauntedly returned the cheque to his father to everyone’s surprise.
“It has been a very humbling experience for me, right from the start. Not only did the show teach me the value of money, but also people. I am very thankful to God that I was born in such an affluent family. I now have just one aspiration in my life, to do something of my own and make a name for myself in this world and that’s the reason I made a decision not to accept my big wish of a blank cheque,” said an elated Faizan.
And this is what Rohit Shetty (judge on the show) had to say about Faizan, “I have actually seen Faizan mould from his arrogance to being a dedicated person. I am very happy for Faizan and he is one person who has always given his best at every task. Initially he had his guard up, but as the show progressed, Faizan showed his commitment and selflessness towards his housemates. I am sure Faizan will do really well in life and prove to be a very successful man.”
Natasha Suri, co-host of the show, also agreed with Rohit, “I was a part of Big Switch season one as a contestant and I brought the same learning to the table as the host for Big Switch 3. All the brats were guided towards a better tomorrow for themselves and Faizan just followed every guidance and tip shared with him. He is a well-deserved winner, though I would say that others also performed beautifully.”
