Swarna Annexes The Crown That Counts In Super Dancer Junior 2 Finale
Swarna Thomas lived up to her name to become the golden girl of the Grand Finale in Amrita TV’s Super Dancer Junior-2, which will be telecast on April 9th at 7.00pm.
Keeping her date with history, Swarna edged past more accomplished and determined competitors to pluck the title and the gilded purse of Rs.5 lakhs . Malavika, came in a close second, while Shifana made the cut to earn the third position and Chithu was adjudged fourth in the ranking—each one earning in lakhs by way of prize money. The jury panel included the dancing divas, Sudha Chandran and Kala Master complemented by acclaimed film director ,Shyamaprasad.
Swarna, the dark horse in the fray, beat the odds to dash down the homestrip ahead of the field by a nose, to become the first past the post.
She was one of the few participants who grew as a contestant as the competition forged ahead, bettering herself with every outing, notching up some perfect 30’s along the way- most notably in the Horror Round, Challenging Styles Round, Festival Round – to peak perfectly in the ultimate stage.
The Finale probed the fine steel of the foursome’s caliber with 3 rounds- the Solo, Pair and Group Round. The fever pitched performances were studded with some tantalizing numbers from film starlet Vishnupriya, Anna the winner of Super Dancer Junior-1 , Sajina & Group, rollicking songs from playback singer Suchitra Kartik.
In a cricketesque conclusion where past laurels don’t t carry any weight and only the present moment counts , Swarna delivered the goods when it mattered most and pocketed the fee.
It was a fairy tale finish to a 7 month long effort for the beauty from Bombay which showed that reality shows can spring as many surprises as one day cricket.
When the dust has settled and the euphoria and elation has given way to the daily drudgery of lessons and exams, Swarna will hopefully treasure the fact that it was her native soil that opened up the gateway to stardom to her.
