Aditya Singhal wins ‘India's Best Dramebaaz’ trophy

After giving his best in every episode over the month, the winner of Zee TV talent show, India's Best Dramebaaz was declared last night. The ‘silent one’ Aditya Singhal from Pune walked away with the 'Golden Keeda' trophy on the show. 13-year-old Aditya Singhal with his top-notch act won the heart of the three judges, Sonali Bendre, Anurag Basu and Vivek Oberoi and the audience. He is the eldest among the top five finalists. Aditya is thrilled over the victory.

‘India's Best Dramebaaz’ aimed at grooming children by testing their creativity, spontaneity and acting capability. The ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ stars Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone was the special guests at the grand finale. They were on the show to promote their new movie, ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’.  The finalists performed on a medley of old and news songs - "Ek do teen" to "Yahoo".

Deepika and Ranbir grooved on the chartbuster "Balam Pichkari" and "Badtameez dil" from the forthcoming movie. What most fascinating was Ranbir and Deepika's act on the famous song "Pyar hua ekraar" from Ranbir's grandfather Raj Kapoor's film "Shree 420".

Aditya Singhal was thrilled to win the show, "Even though I am thrilled on winning the show, I just don't want it to end. 'India's Best Dramebaaz' has given me so much. I'll miss the stage, the performances, Anurag da, Sonali didi, Vivek bhaiyya, Rithvik (Dhanjani) and Ragini didi (Ragini Khanna). I have learnt so much about acting from all of them and especially my mentor on the show, Alok Ulfat," said Aditya.

Aditya Singhal said that he made friends with his contenders, Anjali Astha (10), Chinmay Deshkar (12), Mehnaaz Mann (8), Nihar Gite (6), and Praneet Sharma (5).

"I have made some very special friends in Chinmay and Abhishek. We used to do a lot of masti (fun) on the sets. Unfortunately, both of them fell sick and had to opt out even though they were not eliminated. I feel bad for them, but we'll be friends for life," he added.

Aditya Singhal’s favorite actors are Shahrukh Khan and Paresh Rawal.
