Adding another feather to his cap, singer-actor-TV host Meiyang Chang has won the fourth season of popular dance reality TV show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.
Chang, a professional dentist-turned-singer-actor and now a dancer, won the coveted title on Tuesday night after beating Bollywood “item girl” Yana Gupta and TV actor Sushant Singh Rajput of ‘ Pavitra Rishta' fame.
The 28-year-old said he was surprised at his win in the show, aired on Sony TV, where actor Madhuri Dixit was one of the three judges.
“I am extremely happy and feel fortunate to have won the show. I never thought I would win it. I feel it's my dedication and hard work that helped me. I feel indebted to my choreographer Marischa Fernandes, esteemed judges and the audience, who believed in me,” he told PTI.
Chang and his choreographer Marischa won a cash prize of Rs.25 lakh each. Rajput won the ‘Most Spotless Performance' award and walked away with prize money of Rs.5 lakh.
Besides Madhuri, actor Malaika Arora Khan and ace choreographer Remo D'souza were the other judges.
“We wish Meiyang Chang all the luck and request him to keep his new-found skill alive. It was a difficult task to pick up a winner,” Madhuri said. - PTI
