Arunachal Pradesh-based Manik Paul, known for his stunning aerial acts, was announced the winner of the reality TV show "India's Got Talent".
Along with the trophy, Manik walked away with Rs.5,000,000 and a Maruti Suzuki Celerio car after he looped his way to victory in the finale of the popular TV show's sixth season, which was full of entertainment with dance, drama, rapping and shadow art.
Hosted by comedienne Bharti Singh and actor Sidharth Shukla, the sixth season of the reality show was judged by filmmaker Karan Johar, actress-producer Malaika Arora Khan and actress Kirron Kher.
Giving an emotional twist to the finale episode, Manik performed on the song "Nahin saamne ye alag baat hai" from the 1999 Bollywood movie "Taal" and received a standing ovation from the judges and the audience.
A flashback of the whole season was also screened in a Bollywood movie format with Karan as hero, Malaika as heroine, Kirron as mother, Bharti as hero's sister and Sidharth as the lover boy.
The final episode was made grander with television celebrities joining the finalist for a performance. Manik and Yogeshwari pranced with actress Elli Avram and choreographer Tushar in a surreal performance on "Sun saathiya" -- a rap performance by Raftaar with Parry G and Harmanpreet.
Malaika rocked the stage in a shimmering golden outfit with her energetic moves on songs like "Bang bang" and "Desi look".
Sidharth and Kirron danced on songs like "Ye raatein ye mausam nadi ka kinara", "Aajkal tere mere pyaar ke charche" and "Darling" from the black and white era.
Other highlight of the episode was when Anupam Kher, actor and husband of Kirron, walked on the stage and shaked a leg with his wife.
The final episode of the show also presented some glimpse of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded" with a clip in which Karan introduces Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor as the new judge of the upcoming dance reality show.
