The popular singing reality show, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2018, has come to an end last night. The grand evening announced Ishita Vishwakarma as the winner of the show. The 16-year-old is achieving a lot of appreciation and wishes on social media. She earned the trophy with Rs 5 lakhs and a brand new car.
Along with Ishita, the other five finalists who gave a tough competition were Aslam Majeed, Aishwarya Pandit, Sahil Solanki, Sonu Gill, and Tanmay Chaturvedi. Tanmay was declared as the first runner up followed by Sonu Gill who managed to reach the third position.
Ishita gave a melodious performance in the grand finale and impressed massive audience to gain maximum votes. The grand evening was full of entertainment. It was being hosted by Aditya Narayan and Dheeraj Dhoopar.
In an exclusive conversation, just after the show, Ishita said, “Everyone used to treat me like their daughter as I was everyone’s favorite. All the credit for my winning the trophy goes to my God. Five years ago, when I was in Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champs, I couldn’t even make it to the top 12. That time, I cried a lot and I took a vow that I will return to the platform and win the trophy. Maybe God saw my tears.”
When she was asked about the thought she had before her name was declared as the winner, she replied, “When the 3rd and the 2nd runner-ups’ names were announced, it didn’t have my name. So, the final competition was between me and Sahil Solanki. And that moment, I lost all my hopes there. He is already a playback singer and he has a huge fan following, I was 100 % sure that Sahil will be the winner. So, when my name was announced I thought it was a joke.”
Several celebs who graced the show appreciated Ishita after listening to her melodious voice. Moreover, when SRK heard the young girl singing, he complimented her with the famous dialogue, Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai from his movie, Rab Ne Band Di Jodi. Even Sara Ali Khan visited the show a couple of times and called her mother Amrita Singh to made her listen to Ishita’s voice.
Ishita was the youngest contestant on the show who hails from Madhya Pradesh and comes from a family of singers. However, her mother also participated in this season but couldn’t make it till the end.
