International dancer-actress Lauren Gottlieb may have ended
up as the first runner up on Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 6, but she
is not disappointed. She feels it's a big achievement for her to
reach the finale despite being a foreigner.
Gottlieb came into prominence after winning American dance
reality show So You Think You Can Dance and she made her
bow in Bollywood with Remo D'Souza's 3D dance movie ABCD - Any
Body Can Dance.
"I've fallen in love with India and the people out here. I came
to India as a foreigner, but I'm staying in India as an Indian," Lauren, 25, posted on Twitter.
Lauren, who showed her dancing prowess on Jhalak Dikhla Jaa
6, impressed the viewers when she gave a spell-binding
classical performance in one of the episodes.
"To come from a different country and be voted all the way to
the finale just shows how much love and warmth the people of India
have," she said in her post.
She is grateful to all her fans for letting her and partner
Punit Pathak reach the finals, which was on Saturday where TV
actress Drashti Dhami won the title.
"Thank you so much for making me and Punit Pathak's
'Jhalak...' journey so beautiful and memorable. I mean it
from the bottom of my heart. Thank you," said Lauren.
"Even though I am the runner up, I truly feel like I won the
hearts of everyone in India and that to me means more than winning
a trophy," she added.
