Not just Kunal, even Ajay Devgan, and wife Kajol were impressed with Sunny’s singing and praised him and Kumar Sanu gifted him a jacket which he wore while performing.
The finale night also had performances from Krushna Abhishek and Bharti Singh who made the finale night even more fun and enjoyable. This season was in the news because of Neha Kakkar and host Aditya Narayan’s wedding gimmick. Indian Ideal season 10 winner Salman Ali was there in the finale to encourage the finalists.
Who were the top finalists this season?
The two top finalists i.e. Sunny Hindustani and Rohit Raut. There were other three finalists as well who rocked this season with their soulful singing. To name them, Ankona Mukherjee, Adriz Ghosh, Ridham Kalyan. This year, there was a cut to cut competition among all of them. As it was very hard to decide who will be the winner as everyone was so deserving.
It was great watching Sunny who came from such a background which even one can’t imagine. He was well deserving and if we talk about 15 years old Ankona Mukherjee, she gave a big fight to the other boys as she was the only girl among four boys. She entered the show as a wild card entry. Seriously, it was great watching them all.
