After business tycoon Anand Mahindra shared that he is impressed to see Sunny’s talent, Bollywood actor Gajraj Rao thanked the makers for giving such talents an opportunity on a platform like Indian Idol.
The actor took to social media and wrote, “He used to polish shoes, and Mother used to sell balloons … But both of them continued to dream … Their dream came true two days ago … Hearing the story of their pain and exhilaration, even though our tears did not stop Paaya … Our salute to the spirit of Sunny Hindustani and thousands of their ilk … Thank you Sony TV, for setting this stage for unknown artists.”
Sunny Hindustani won the country with his singing talent on Indian Idol 11. He got the maximum votes on the finale night. Besides bagging the trophy, Sunny even took home a cash prize of Rs 25 lakh. He defeated top-notch competitors – Rohit Raut, Adriz Ghosh, Ankona Mukherjee and Ridham Kalyan – and emerged victorious. His victory has inspired many.
