A journey that enthralled the audience with the festival of dance finally culminated in a grand twist as Sony Entertainment Television’s popular dance reality show India’s Best Dancer Season 2 got the ‘Next Avatar of the Best’ of this season! India’s Best Dancer’s ‘The Ultimate Finale’ turned out to be exceptional with one-of-a-kind dance acts and techniques. While the entire nation was eagerly waiting to see who would be declared the winner among the ‘Best 5’ finalists, Pune’s Soumya Kamble was declared the winner of this season and presented with the coveted trophy.
Soumya Kamble was presented with a check of Rs 15 lakh and a Maruti Suzuki Swift car from Sony Entertainment Television. Her choreographer Vartika Jha was awarded a check of Rs 5 lakh. Among the best 5 finalists, Gaurav Sarwan of Jaipur was declared the first runner up and Roza Rana of Odisha was declared the second runner up. Raktim Thakuria of Assam and Zamrud of Kerala were declared third and fourth runner up respectively. Apart from this, everyone was given a check of one lakh rupees each from Campus Shoes.

Declared ‘Our little Helen’ by Asha Bhosle ji, Saumya gave her best and performed some exceptional belly dancing and freestyle dance acts along with her choreographer Vartika. His father wanted Saumya to become a doctor, while his mother wanted him to become a dancer. In such a situation, this beautiful dancer strikes a balance between the two very well. Recently her father even called her ‘India’s best daughter’, who was constantly with her in this journey of Saumya. The most special moment came when Nora Fatehi gifted him a belly dancing coin belt and performed some smooth belly dancing moves with him. Judge Malaika Arora showered her with millions of kisses, Geeta Kapoor prostrated her and Terence Lewis described her performance as ‘Chummeswari’. Saumya definitely made a big impact with her performance and created a new definition of entertainment, newness and technique in the show. By the way, many congratulations to Saumya from our side too for being the next avatar of BEST!
Wishing Saumya all the best for a bright future!
