Samarpan Lama is winner of India’s Best Dancer – Season 3

New Delhi, (UNI) Samarpan Lama emerged winner after an intense battle of the ‘TOP 5 finalists’ in ‘Finale no.1’ of Sony Entertainment Television’s India’s Best Dancer 3.

Samarpan Lama won prize money of INR 15 lakhs and lifted the coveted trophy of India’s Best Dancer 3, while his choreographer Bhawna Khanduja was awarded a cheque of INR five lakhs.

The electrifying episode was graced by the presence of Bollywood’s Hero No.1 – Govinda and the cast of ‘Ganapath’ – Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon.

The special guests joined host Jay Bhanushali and Judges Sonali Bendre and Geeta Kapur to provide their unwavering support to the top 5 finalists: Shivanshu Soni, Vipul Kandpal, Aniket Chauhan, Anjali Mamgai, and the ultimate winner, Samarpan Lama. The vibrant kids of ‘Super Dancer’ – Florina Gogoi, Pari Tamang, Tejas Varma and Aneesh Tattikotta and the talented contestants – Vaibhav Gupta, Aathya Mishra and Muskaan Srivastava, of the upcoming Indian Idol Season 14 with its host Hussain Kuwajerwala, upped the ante of entertainment in ‘Finale No.1’.

Staying true to this season’s theme, #HarMoveSeKarengeProve, Samarpan’s win is well deserved and his journey on the show has been nothing short of a roller-coaster ride. In the audition round, he stood out as the second contestant to reach the “Behtareen 13”, the first of many steps towards making his dreams come true.

For his cuteness, his graceful moves, and the magic he unfolded with contemporary dance, he received admiration from the three judges and the celebrities who graced the show. He was aptly titled as the ‘Cutie Minister’ by Sonali Bendre, Judge Geeta Kapur applied her signature ‘Kaala Teeka’ on his feet to symbolize her admiration for his moves, and even said she saw a glimpse of Terence in him while Judge Terence Lewis referred to him as the “King of Contemporary”.

Renowned choreographer Remo Dsouza, in awe of Samarpan’s talent and dedication, gifted him a pair of shoes as a token of respect. But one standout act that Samarpan will always be remembered for was his heartwarming performance in female attire to the song ‘Param Sundari’, which was most loved by guest Raveena Tandon, who called him ‘Miss Diva’. However, the most touching moment was when Samarpan reunited with his father on the stage of India’s Best Dancer after many years, bringing tears of joy to his face.

‘It feels surreal! I always watched reality shows and wished that I would be a part of one such show someday. But what I never imagined was winning my first dance reality show; it’s truly a dream come true for me,” he said.

“Samarpan is my ‘cutie minister’ and I am so happy for his win. Even though he is not a trained dancer, he never failed to impress us, as his love and passion for dance,” Sonali Bendre commented.
