The latest series of ‘Nach Baliye 3’ came to an end last night with favourite Rakhi Sawant having to settle in second place, being beaten by TV personalities Sanjeeda and Aamir.
Sanjeeda-Aamir danced away with the first prize of Rs.2 million and a car while their choreographers Arun and Chetan won Rs.1 million.
Bollywood heartthrob Salman Khan, who entertained the viewers with his one-liners and did many jigs to his hit numbers, announced the winners and gave away the prizes.
Before naming the winners, Salman made a request: “Please don’t cry after the announcement because we have not come to mourn here.”
However, Rakhi couldn’t keep Salman’s request. When the results were announced, the drama queen – touted as the sure shot winner – was visibly shocked and immediately left the stage with her partner. She didn’t even stay to take the runners up trophy.
The camera captured her crying and sobbing. Later, talking to a television channel, she alleged that votes had been tampered with and she was included in the show merely as a publicity tool.
Rakhi Sawant and her partner Abhishek Awasthi blasted show producers saying Sanjeeda and Aamir only won the title because of a publicity stunt to promote their drama ‘Kkayamath’, which is also screened on STAR Plus.
‘Nach Baliye 3’ launches in the UK on Saturday 12th January on STAR Plus.
