‘I want to represent India on an international platform’, says Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa season 10 winner Gunjan Sinha

From a trip to an adventure park to meeting her friends back home in Guwahati and finally, getting the doll house that her parents had promised her a few years ago, Gunjan Sinha is excited to tick off everything on her wish list. The eight-year-old dancer from Guwahati was declared the winner of the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10 (JDJ 10). Gunjan, along with her choreographers Tejas Verma and Sagar Bora, won the dance reality show after beating Rubina Dilaik, and they say they are “extremely happy and shocked.”

Gunjan, who had participated in a dance reality show before JDJ 10, says that her biggest challenge was learning new dance forms and styles and performing them with perfection. “I think I have become a better dancer after being on this show and I want to continue learning different dance forms,” says Gunjan, whose cute expressions and striking moves have impressed viewers. She will return to Guwahati soon and is looking forward to going back to school. “I never missed my studies because I was attending the classes online, but I am looking forward to meeting my friends in school. I will continue focusing on my dance while completing my studies,” she says.


Gunjan is happy to have made her parents proud. “They are still in shock! My victory has made them very happy and emotional. We plan to go to an adventure park and I have told my parents that I want Elsa’s house (from the film Frozen) as a gift. They had promised me that they will gift it to me a few years ago. But now, when I am asking them for it, they are saying that I should be giving them a gift instead,” laughs the little champ. She now wants to represent India on an international dance platform.

Sagar says, “While we were on the show, judges and many others told us that we should try and participate in international dance competitions. We want to learn more and prepare ourselves to represent India on an international platform. But that is a long-term plan, right now, we just want to celebrate with our friends and family,” says Sagar. Tejas adds, “This still feels like we are living some dream and it was totally unexpected as we were competing against people like Rubina and even Faisu, who are extremely popular and have a huge fan base. That was not the case with us, we relied on our talent, and our passion for dancing kept us motivated. We have been lucky to get so much love and support from everyone.”
