PUNE, INDIA (GaeaTimes.com)- The Dance India Dance Li’l Masters grand finale declared the 11 year old pint sized dynamite Jeetu Moni from Guwahati as the winner of the competition this season. After several weeks of what can be called the most grueling dance competition on Indian television that talented young boy proved that he had the mettle as he stood first in the finale. He overtook the highly talented Atul Banmoria from Chandigarh who was also among the favorites to win the competition. The final results showed Vaishnavi Patil coming third and the fourth position going to Manoj Rathod from Mumbai.
Bollywood stars Sonam Kapoor and her father Anil Kapoor were the chief guests on the show. Sonam Kapoor’s was present to promote her latest release Aisha which has received mixed response so far. Ace choreographer Farah Khan was also present on the show along with Sandip Soparrkar as the special judges for the finals. Legendary Bollywood actor Mithun Chakraborty was also present and gave a surprise performance along with the original judges of Dance India Dance. Though Jeetu Moni was one of the favorites from the very beginning he showed tremendous progress in his dance over the weeks. His win was, however, uncertain as almost all the little dancers performed out of their skins for the finale.
Apart from the starry judges panel and the surprise performance by the stars, there was some more surprises for the audience as the winners of the previous two seasons gave a sizzling performance as well. Jeetu Moni received a cash prize of Rs.300,000 and also the KB3 trophy that had the word ‘Kya Baat’ written thrice over it.
