As the curiosity mounted minutes away from the final decision, the 3 finalists of Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar Season 2, Akanksha, Sreeram and Irfan broke into a cold sweat wondering if their hard work had paid off. After 2 months of challenges, training, mentoring and meeting the best in the field of music, the 3 finalists were ready to take on their toughest challenge in the game.
The desperation to win was apparent in all 3 contestants. Irfan says this is the first grand finale of his career and he desperately wants to win, Sreeram says he wants to give his best shot and doesn't want to lose at any cost. For Aakanksha, who is the youngest amongst the 3, it's a proud moment and says she is working really hard to win the title.
As the challenge concluded, the 3 finalists nervously stood waiting for the judges and public votes to conspire in their favour. Bollywood's sensational singer Himesh Reshammiya was the special guest on this show and he announced the winner. So who wins? Challenger Mohammed Irfan wins the coveted titled of ‘Superstar' and bags the grand prize of Rs 50 lakh!
After much hard work and immense dedication, challenger Irfan from Hyderabad not only made it to the champions side but outshone all other contestants on the show. His triumph has been well deserved with weeks of sincere effort and mentoring under Shantanu Moitra. "He was quiet but very dynamic. And he slowly worked his way up. He has a great voice and he honed his skill beautifully over weeks of training. He surely is the best man to win," says Shantanu Moitra, judge and mentor of Mohammed Irfan.
Champion Sreeram, again from Hyderabad, was declared the runner-up of the show after rigorous mentoring under Shaan. In the beginning of the show, Reshammiya had announced that the runner-up will get to sing a song in his upcoming film and he will ensure that the song is the blockbuster of the year! Sreeram was thrilled at winning this opportunity as well.
Apart from the drama surrounding the final 3 contestants while they were waiting for the nail-biting finish, we got a whiff of drama cooking up at the judges table as well. Rahul Vaidya, the winner of Season 1, who was anchoring the finale episode with the gorgeous Mandira Bedi, was at his flirtatious best; Vaidya was pulling all stops to woo the lady!
The finale episode of Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar Season 2 had all the drama and masti for the grand finish - lots of singing, some tears, inspiring judges and mentors and the intensity that proved that to win, you have to be the best.
