Chhattisgarh girl Alisha Behura wins 'So You Think You Can Dance'


Alisha Behura from Chhattisgarh won the coveted title of the first season of 'So You Think You Can Dance'. "With this win, I encourage all those aspiring dancers in our country to think big and not restrict them to anything", Alisha said after the big win.

When mentors Madhuri Dixit-Nene, choreographers Terence Lewis and Bosco Martis announced Alisha's name at the grand finale, Alisha broke into an impromptu jig. Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez were the special guests. The stars came to promote their film, ‘Dishoom’. 

Dancing diva Madhuri lauded Alisha's dancing skills. She said: "She is the first girl I have seen doing krumping so well. She has a lot of style, oomph factor and innocence."

Terence said: "Alisha's journey has been 'googly' right from the auditions."

Alisha won price money of Rs 2.5 million, a Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 and gift vouchers worth Rs. 20,000 from YepMe. She faced stiff competition from her competitors Tarun Nihalani, Kalpita Kachroo and Aryan Patra.

At the finale, Madhuri paid tribute to Sridevi, and presented a remix version of the song "Deewani mastani" from "Bajirao Mastani". Terence danced on "Malhari" from "Bajirao Mastani".
