Rithvik Dhanjani-Ash Negi wins ‘Nach Baliye 6’
The sixth season of the celebrity dance show, ‘Nach Baliye’ is over and the show has finally got the winner of the sixth season. Rithvik and his partner Ash won the ‘Nach Baliye 6’ title. The couple performed consistently well and won the heart of the three judges, Shilpa Shetty, Sajid Khan and Terrance Lewis. Part from the prestigious title, the winner won price money of Rs 35 lakh, Renault Duster Car, a holiday package to Gold Coast, Australia and a Gold Trophy.
The choreographer of the couple Vibhav and Bhavana awarded Rs 5 lakh.
When the result was declared, Rithvik jumped with joy, Asha broke into tears.
"We had put in our best in every performance and had a clear goal of winning right from day one. However the competition was very tough and it only pushed us to try harder with every episode. Needless to say, this would have not been possible without my Baliye. The sweat and tears shed was all worth it," said Rithvik.
Rithvik and Asha were confident of their victory, “Both me and Rithvik, we were confident that we will win the show. There was never a moment when we lost the confidence or that we were over-confident. But, we did our best, gave my 100 percent and we knew it will pay off,” said Asha Negi.
The four finalists were Gurmeet Choudhary with Debina Bonnerjee, Master Chef Ripudaman Handa and Shivangi Verma, Ritwik Dhanjani and Asha Negi and last but not the least Vinod Pradhan and Raksha Pradhan.
“Gurmeet and Debina always gave good performances, they used to surprise us with their acts. So, it was challenging to compete with them, but Rithvik was always there for me and it’s because of his support that we were able to reach the finale and win the trophy,” she said. “Even my choreographers (Vaibhav and Bhavana) kept me going. I used to get so tired after the shoot (of ‘Pavitra Rishta’) that they literally had to persuade me everyday to perform. I am very lazy otherwise, but because of Rithvik and my choreographers I just used to practice,” Asha added.
The winning couple planned to buy a house with the price money. “Rithvik is planning to buy a house and even I am thinking of the same. But first of all, both of us are going to visit Golden Temple (Amritsar),” Asha said.
Vidya Balan and Farhan Akhtar appeared on the finale to promote their new film, ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effect’. The duo was seen shaking a leg with the finalists.
