Along with the trophy, Tiger Pop also won a cheque of Rs 15 lakh and a brand new car.
Ecstatic about winning the title, Tiger Pop said, “I am beyond happy to have won the coveted title. I cannot believe that my childhood dream of being on a platform like this and winning it, has come true today. The whole journey of being on India’s Best Dancer, right from my very first audition, to my first battle, to being paired with a choreographer like Vartika Jha, to performing and learning something new week-on-week has been surreal.”
“Standing here on this stage made me realize that adulation cannot be taken for granted. You have to work hard to earn in. I am thankful to all the judges for keeping us grounded and being an inspiration to all of us. I am grateful and overwhelmed for all the love that I have received from all over the world,” he added.
Mukul Gain and Shweta Warrier ended up as the first and second runners-up respectively.
After weeks of hardwork and tough competition, the only five contestants to be a part of the grand finale were Tiger Pop, Mukul Gain, Shweta Warrier, Paramdeep Singh and Shubranil Paul. A whopping total of 3 crores 28 lakhs votes were clocked in for the finale.
The grand finale was graced by a host of celebrities including Dharmesh Yelande, Raghav Juyal, Pooja Sawant, as well as the cast of Story 9 months Ki – Sukirti Kandpal and Aashay Mishra.
Over the weekend, Bharti and Haarsh were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau and sent to 14-days judicial custody for possession and consumption of ganja. The duo’s bail plea will be heard today.
