On Sunday, Ajay Singh, aka Tiger Pop, took home India’s Best Dancer trophy. The young boy from Gurugram also received a cash prize of Rs 15 lakh and a chic Maruti car. His choreographer Vartika Jha also received a check for Rs 5 lakh.
Tiger Pop said he wasn’t sure he would win, as he had to compete against strong dancers like Mukul Gain, Shweta Warrier, Paramdeep Singh and Shubranil Paul. Considering he got so much love from fans, he had high expectations.
In an exclusive conversation with indianexpress.com, the winner said, “Everyone who came on the show was always so nice to me. That’s why I knew I would also receive the same amount of love from the public. I wasn’t sure, but somehow I felt like I might be the winner. “
Tiger Pop said he considered Mukul Gain to be a tough match and shared that he was praying hard and had his eyes closed when the announcement was about to happen. “After I got this far, I didn’t want to lose. I was praying hard because I didn’t want my mother to go back to her hard life. When my name was announced, I couldn’t control my luck. I was delighted. Now I’m just waiting to go back home and celebrate with my family and friends, ”said Tiger Pop.
The young dancer revealed that he got messages on social media about how his dancing shows his love for the craft. He also said that many people were connected to him, given his recognizable personality.
When asked which performance was his personal favorite, the champion said: “There were quite a few. The one where I performed as Rajesh and then the soul exchange act are my favorites. Aside from that, it gave me a different kind of satisfaction every time I performed before the jury. ”
