India Banega Manch got its winner tonight in form of superb salsa dancers, Amit Rajput and Sakshi Kurtarkar. They are well known in the dance circuit with their mastery over salsa and other forms of Latin American dance. India Banega Manch brought performers from all major cities of India. Amit and Sakshi won hearts at every level with their superlative moves made it to the finale. Other finalists were dancer Pritam, Aliyans Group that left people speechless. The team of Mubarakan cheered as the audience for the finale. Arjun Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and ladies Athiya Shetty and Ileana D’Cruz were bowled over by everyone.
Contestants from Khatron Ke Khiladi 8 graced the finale to promote their show. Hina Khan looked smashing in a red dress while Nia Sharma was sexy in a black outfit with wavy hair. Judge and host, Rohit Shetty gave away the award. The boys Ravi Dubey and Rithvik Dhanjani livened up the proceedings. Khatron Ke Khiladi will be replacing India Banega Manch from next weekend. The season was not a huge one in term of TRPs but fans who saw it were amazed by some of the acts. The unique format of the show makes it different. Amit and Sakshi hail from Goa and have been performing at various talent shows. They will be using the prize money to compete in foreign competitions. In a statement to the IndianExpress.com, they said, “In other competitions, you need to just impress a couple of judges but here we had to hold the attention of as many people as we could. Also being Latin dancers, we were scared for the form is not too popular in India yet and we could have lost our audience if we were not very entertaining.”
The two now hope to shine at international forums. They have been wanting to take part in competitions abroad but could not do so due to lack of funds. They are now looking at exploring that aspect. Congratulations to the winners.
