Om Chetry remained at No. 2 followed by Rohan Parkale at No. 3, Soumya Rai at No. 4 and Jeet Das at No. 5
BestMediaInfo Bureau | Delhi | August 13, 2012
As the live audience of over five thousand cheered wildly at the Balewadi Sports Complex, Pune, millions of TV viewers from across the country joined in the celebration from home as young Faisal Khan of Mumbai was declared the winner of Zee TV’s ‘Knorr Soupy Noodles DID L’il Masters powered by LR Active’! In an intense, nerve-racking finish, Faisal who belongs to Prince Ki Paltan was voted the winner by millions of fans from across the nation. The rirst runner up of DID Little Masters season 2 was Om Chetry while Rohan Parkale was declared second runner up. Soumya Rai stood at No. 4 and Jeet Das at No. 5.
Superstar Akshay Kumar was the star attraction at the glitzy evening along with Grandmaster Mithun Da, judges Marzi Pestonji and Geeta Kapur, ace choreographers Farah Khan and Terence Lewis. The winner was presented the coveted ‘KB3’ Cup.
Akshay Kumar who unveiled the first look of his forthcoming film ‘Oh My God’ at the Grand Finale of DID L’il Masters was so floored by the super-talented 5 finalists that he made all 5 of them an offer on the spot – He promised them a chance to be a part of an exciting promotional dance video of ‘Oh My God’! Needless to say, the kids were thrilled to bits.
Not many 13-year-olds can claim to have fans in Bollywood, but Faisal Khan has done just that! And today with the winner’s hat perched firmly on his head, he has come out a winner far ahead of the rest! At the Mumbai audition, he left Master Geeta Kapur in tears with his brilliant performance. She wished that she was blessed with a child like Faisal and his inborn talent for dance. Abhishek Bachchan & Ritesh Deshmukh were raving about his fluid movements and charming expressions and have been following his progress on the show right from the audition. Whether it is his artistry with props or the ease with which he makes even the most complicated dance look simple, Faisal is one electric performer who has won himself a legion of dedicated fans!
The evening of the finale was marked by some breathtaking performances by each of the Top 5 finalists, their skippers and Masters Geeta Kapur and Marzi Pestonji. While Faisal paid tribute to the golden era of films in his performance, l’il Om was up to his tricks and stunts with a performance that featured malkhamb, lathis and … hold your breath … a human pyramid! Rohan’s performance literally was electrifying as he made the lights on stage dance to the same tunes that he performed to. Soumya danced like a gorgeous doll with her performance that transformed the stage into a mini Chinatown complete with dragons, chinese lanterns and umbrellas. Jeet made sure that he paid his idol the ultimate tribute as he danced to a medley of Michael Jackson songs with a 15 foot statue of Michael Jackson appearing on stage. Each of the skippers too added their own flair and punch to performances of their own. While Prince took Raghav head on in a takkar set in a junkyard, Neerav and Kruti were joined by Terrence Lewis and “chik chik” girl Shreya in a lively medley of Chikni Chameli, Banjara and kombdi palali. In keeping with the theme that ran through the season, surprisingly, the mummies of each of the contestants also joined Jay Bhanushali and Marzi Pestonji on stage to dance to Aare Pritam Pyaare and Auntyji.
Commenting on the Grand Finale of the immensely successful show, Ashish Golwalkar, Head – Non-fiction Programming, Zee TV said, “Heartiest Congratulations to Faisal. With the latest season of DID L’il Masters, Dance India Dance, as a brand, has set new benchmarks in the realms of reality programming. The show has enjoyed an extremely consistent, week-on-week leadership over competition. Despite several reality shows featuring prominent Bollywood celebrities launching in its course, the show has towered head and shoulders above the rest purely on merit of content, the unadulterated innocence of these kids and their sheer brilliance as dancers. My best wishes to all the finalists for their future endeavors.”
The entire country watched the L’il Masters dance since its launch with dropped jaws and said a collective “Wow”! Zee TV’s DID L’il Masters premiered with a grand opening of 5.8 TVR and went on to soar even higher on television viewership charts with a fabulous 6.2 TVR in the second week of its telecast. And till date, these li’l powerhouses of talent have ruled the popularity charts, making the show the undisputed King of all reality shows. Swirling up a magical blend of jaw-dropping dance acts one could never have imagined kids to be able to perform, DID L’il Masters has been a delight to watch and very logically the ruler of the TRP charts!
Master Geeta Kapur and Marzi Pestonji have been the judges along with Grandmaster Mithun Dada. The talented children who made it to the ‘Top 16’ this year have been mentored, groomed and choreographed by their ‘Skippers’ who are popular contestants from the previous seasons of Dance India Dance. The skippers have been the king of Slow Motion dance – Raghav aka Crockroaz, the “Prince” of Locking and Popping from Season 1 of Dance India Dance, Neerav Bavlecha, the quintessential chocolate boy of DID Season 3 and Kruti Mahesh, the exceptionally gifted classical dancer from Season 2. Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Prabhudeva, Shahid Kapur, Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, Karisma Kapur, Ajay Devgn, Ritesh Deshmukh and Tushar Kapoor have been celebrity guests on the show and just haven’t been able to resist the charm of the li’l ones.
Another highlight was the staggering count of downloads that the DID L’il Masters mobile application generated. With attractive new features like LIVE chats with the masters and personalized dance tutorials by the skippers of the show, more than 3 Lakh smartphone users across the country downloaded the exciting app! Beyond providing users latest updates from the show at their fingertips, the newly introduced features that captured public imagination and upped the number of downloads were LIVE chats with the Masters and skippers, as well as the personalized dance tutorials from the four skippers on the show. The easy voting feature resulted in the contestants drawing a staggering 5,61,00,000 votes across the entire season.
Apart from the priceless exposure and the golden opportunity to showcase their talent in front of the country, the finalists of DID L’il Masters have walked away with a bounty of prizes. While the winner takes home a scholarship of Rs 10 Lakhs from LR Active and a gift hamper from Knorr Soupy Noodles, the first runner-up won a 5 Lakh scholarship and a gift hamper. The second runner-up received a scholarship of Rs 3 Lakhs and a gift hamper.
the king …
bst of luck
Faisal Khan I Like the most you and your dance really . I wish that your future will be bright ” INSHA ALLHA”
Congratulations! Faisal. Keep it up.
Allah tumhare saath hain.
This was one of the worst judgement in DID history. Faisal was good but not the best. Biast judge like Geeta and judgement should be avoided for the future competition. All knew that Rohan, Sumiya and Om were much better dancers than Faisal.
Good Luck DID. Hope the same face in Judges will be changed.

I love you Faisal and Prince……

Faisal is a good dancer but it was really shocking 2 see rohan and saumya in 3rd and 4th place. they r better than faisal. But it happens when judgement is done by audience vote..they’ll vote the person whom they like..not the 1 who is best
congrate faisal and best of luck for life
faisal allah kare tum aise hi aaga badte jaoo aur kamyabi tumhare kadam chume aamin summa aamin
well done faizal you and saumya were my favourite and you won the prize and i am happy for that
Om u r great dancer wish u all the best for 2nd position, no one can challange to anybody but u r the kids of 7 years old can challange 2 every one, no body can do that accepts Akshay kumar, welldone Om God bless u.
Though happy about Faizal winning, feel disappointed for Rohan & Soumya. Best wishes to all 5 Masters !
congratulation to all top 5 team……………
all deserve first position as they do dance in their own style …..
Congratulations Faisal, Best of luck for your career ahead & thanks to Zee TV for showing us this type of entertaining program. Hope to watch again this type of tough competition….

Like as usual the person who should deserve to win the competition didn’t win.. I m not really satisfied with the results.. And Geeta being a judge i think she didnt do the judge role properly.. In my point of view i believe she wanted Faisal to win..
There were other contestants who was better than him..
it is fix.. Like as usual the person who should deserve to win the competition didn’t win.. I m not really satisfied with the results.. And Geeta being a judge i think she didnt do the judge role properly.. In my point of view i believe she wanted Faisal to win..
There were other contestants who was better than him.This was one of the worst judgement in DID history.
u deserve it faisal , but for your coming life todi nako phodi nako bhuko kari nako
I LOVE U FAISAL UR SOOOO CUTE AND I ALWAYS WANTED U 2 WIN, I ONLY WATCHED THE SHOW 4 U AND I’M SO HAPPY U WON, CUZ UR THE BEST!!!! THE ONLY THING THT MAKES ME SAD IS THT THE SHOW IS OVER, AND NOW I WONDER WHN I’LL SEE U AGAIN. IF ONLY WE COULD MEET IN REAL, BUT WHTEV, I JUST LOVCE UR FACE, AND UR DANCE IS AWESOME, LIKE BEST IN THE WORLD U CUTIE!!!!!
Geeta aur marji sadi kar ke faisal ko god lenge..kitna galat hai ki in dono ne masum bachcho ke dil toda..faisal kahi se v winner nahi hai..tandav aur fom heart dance me galti karke v tarif aur OM fire dance me dare kar ke v dant..shame geeta shame shame marji..
I love om, i think he deserved it very much, he did the most stunts that probs nobody could do on DID ! He’s only frickin 7 !!! And for the ppl saying he should be last, who the hell are you to judge if the kids on DID dont mind then why are you judging ! Im not from India, i live in America so i couldnt vote but i defs think that the voting was infair and Geeta was unfair to the other kids as well, i really dont like her, from the beginning she wanted Faisal to win, which was totally unfair to the other contestants ! But all the 5 kids are great dancers, we shouldnt say or choose who’s better than who! I love Om he’s a really cute and nice kid, so for the ppl that are saying he should be last, shut up ! All the kids were amazing ! Faisal did win maybe cuz of geeta but its all over with now, hes the wonner face the fact, Rohan & soumya were great dancers as well, but dont judge kids, if yiur seriously judging the lil kids that dont really mind then why are grown ups making such a big deal outta it, you guys are such immatures ! The voting seems fixed, we spend our money to win and vote for them, and they play with our votes, this is not done, But like i said All 5 kids were amazing we shouldnt choose who’s better than who, but should be happy for these kids, for representing us Indians and making us proud
Om is a great dancer !!! And to all of you that are saying that Om should be last then why don’t you guys try doing all the stunts, and challenges that this lil 7 yr old boy did !!! He could’ve gotten much better choreography if maybe he wasn’t in Kruti’s Crackers ! Its not his fault if he wasnt taught that well he could’ve learnt much more. As for Geeta i really dont think she should be a judge in the future shes probably the only reason why Faisal won, Faisal is a good dancer we get it, but Geeta shouldnt keep on saying it over & over again on every episode, I live in America so i cant vote, but to all of you voting in India i think that the voting is fixed, i’ve never missed a single episode in DID ever and the ones who should win, dont i think the voting is fixed, they play with our votes, after we spend so much money to vote and make our favorites win! Geeta obviously wanted Faisal she even wrote on twitter to vote for him! so unfair to all the other kids, shes not fit to be a judge, i think that all the 5 kids are amazing dancers and they all deserved to win, but the trophy only goes to 1 right? I personally love Om very much, hes so adorable and has a bright personality, Soumya & Rohan, were great dancers as well, but why should we fight and judge over whos better than who when the kids in the competition dont mind?! For me all the kids are EQUAL! We should look at they’re dance not who’s our favorite, but after all we never do that now do we? We always vote for who’s our favorite! So plz stop saying that this kid should have won over this kid, or this child should have been in this position instead of this child, becasue i honestly doubt that we could do what these kids to at such a young age! We should be proud of all the kids in the competition for raising our Indian name, and making us proud to be indians
I love Om, he was my favorite on the show, i think all the kids in the competition from the very beginning were very good, and instead of fighting over who should’ve won over who, or who is/was better than who we should just accept the fact that Faisal won even though he maybe shouldn’t have, we all know he got more votes due to “Geeta Maa” he was always her favorite! I think that the voting in DID is fixed, Soumya & Rohan were really good as well, and they deserve to win too, but theres only one person in the end that gets the trophy! Dont forget that, so stop putting the other kids in the competition down and saying this child is better than this child, cuz if the kids themselves dont mind then why are we fighting and making such a big deal outta it?! And agreed @ Adi, Rohan, Soumya, & Om were good dancers too! Stop saying that he shouldve been last ppl, i DOUBT! that you guys can do stunts and dance like this 7 yr old child did! if you cant then just SHUT UP and dont judge !!! All 5 kids were outstanding ! So dont compare ANY CHILD! cuz in my eyes all kids are the same! Too bad that i couldnt vote since im not from india, i live in America, but if i could vote i would vote for the child that DANCES well not for my FAVORITE one. you see theres a difference, but unlike indias audience they only vote for their favorite, or if that person is from theyre hometown, this isn’t fair voting. And since the voting is fixed theres no point in voting anyways, why we waste our money when in the end its only gonna go to waste? But my only point is stop comparing kids and saying so and so is better than so and so… its not fair, theres a reason they’ve come so far! and if you cant dance like these kids then dont judge !!!
congratulation faisal khan all the best
Faisal i always thought u would win from the day i saw your audition! you are like the cutest thing i saw! srry i called you a thing and congratulation for winning! plus I LOVE YOU! i always had a crush on you since the day i saw your face!
