We talked to Garv Dixit who plays Raka in the show and he states, "Shweta plays a girl who seeks for help, and I make my entry in typical hero style and save her. She is being attacked by a mob of gundas, and cries for help. I end up bashing all the guys and saving her. She thanks me for everything and I fall for her. But the climax is that she ends up saying, 'Hum jaise behnon ko tumare jaise bhai ki zaroorat hai', and I have a heart break (smiles)".

Baichung Bhutia, The Winner Of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Seasion 3

The footballer turned dancer, Baichung Bhutia and his choreo Sonia emerged triumphant in The Finale of Sony's Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.

Indian football captain, Baichung Bhutia and his choreographer Sonia have lifted Sony's Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 3 trophy. The lanky Sikkimese dude who initially had hiccups in getting his emotions right on stage beat the talented dancer Gauhar Khan and the crowd favorite Karan Singh Grover, in the finale which was recorded late last night and went on to become the First Male Winner of Jhalak!!

The Grand Finale will be telecasted next Sunday night. "Most finals are usually telecast deferred live, but this had to be delayed because tonight's IPL Finale was being aired live on the sister network of Sony", says a source.

Coming to yesterday's finale, Savio Barnes, choreographer of Hard Kaur told us, "The audiences SMS vote overturned the judges' markings which had favored Gauhar. They selected the second best Baichung as their winner and kept Karan Singh as the third finalist, just like the teen deviyaan".

"There was no face off round between the top two and the audience vote selected Baichung", confirms our source from the sets. Our khabru went on to state that when the top two names were announced, everybody was surprised because it was expected that Karan will get most votes.

Although Savio admitted that Gauhar was a better dancer, he felt "Baichung deserved to win as he had showed remarkable growth and had reached this stage from being a complete non-dancer. Gauhar on the other hand is a good dancer, and she had trained with me too in the past".

On Karan our source says, "There was no growth; he remained where he was right from round one".

Savio who was quite depressed at losing out in the semi finals felt much better when the channel and the jury gave him and Hard Kaur, the Best Dancers' trophy, a replica of the winning trophy, after telling them that this was not out of sympathy, but because they deserved it.

Well, the moment of truth is that the Jhalak trophy belongs to Baichung!! Three cheers to the guy...

Tie between Gauhar and Baichung

Gauhar and Baichung remain inseparable this week in terms of points, courtesy their fabulous performances..

The pre-finale tension is mounting on Sony's Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa as Gauhar Khan and Baichung Bhutia are trying hard to out beat the other on the dance floor!!

3ccording to our source, "Both Baichung and Gauhar gave their best performance this week, and the judges found it difficult to rate them. The level of competition amongst both is so high that they could not be separated even in points, as they ended up a tie".

Elaborating on the performance of Gauhar our informer adds, "She was perfect and her attitude portrayed that she deserved to win. Her Kisna act was very much appreciated by the judges. She was dressed in the attire of Krishna and gave a powerful performance and fetched good marks".

Baichung was equally good. "Baichung and Sonia performed on the rumba act and it was a nice sight to watch. The dance involved risk as they jigged on top of two tables and a chair which they used as props. Sonia was fabulous as she jumped from one place to another,", chirps the little birdie.

Prabhu Deva too liked both their performances. "He was amazed to see Baichung dancing and grooving with Sonia", concludes the source.

The countdown has now begun to crown the Dancing Sensation in the Third Season of Jhalak.. May the best win..
