Faisal Khan, the youngest contestant on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa this season, has walked away with the trophy beating competition – popular names like Sanaya Irani, Shamita Shetty and Mohit Malik. Asked about his immediate reaction after the win Faisal says, “All I recall is that I was screaming so loud that I lost my voice and so did Vivek sir (choreographer). I always believed that I am my own competitor, I didn’t think about the others’ performances — only focused on improving my own.”

Quizzed about the kind of hours he’d been putting in, the young artiste reveals, “Initially I was putting in four to six hours but for the finale we would rehearse 10-12 hours.”
About his winning moment he says, “Suddenly I felt like everyone just disappeared after my win. I could only see Vivek and Vaishnavi (choreographers) on stage.”

 

Some viewers had opined that since Faisal is a trained dancer and the winner of another dance show, it was unfair having him on Jhalak. “If I could win over 75 people out of 100, that was enough to make me a winner. This is a dance competition, you can’t say that only a non-dancer should win. Everyone is an equal in a competition and has a fair chance.” Speaking about future plans the dancer who has also acted in TV shows says, “I don’t think any work is too small or too big. I'm open to all kinds of projects, serials, reality shows and movies.”
