Dance India Dance Doubles 2011 Winner - Amit & Falon

Amit Malvankar and Falon Netto of Mumbai were declared the winners of Zee TV’s ‘Dance India Dance Doubles’ Saturday night, following four months of rigorous dancing and competition. The dancing pair from judge Marzi Pestonji’s team Marzi Ke Mastane beat Saurabh Bangani-Vivek Jaiswal, Cornell Rodrigues-Sonali Kar and Vikram Gill-Niharika Soni to walk away with the trophy in the grand finale. Each of them was also awarded a Tata Nano. ‘It’s an awesome feeling and it has not sunk in yet. I was trying to be as optimistic as I could, as I really wanted it. I knew that we had a chance,’ Falon said. ‘The experience has been way beyond what I expected. It’s been so physically and mentally draining out. But all of that gets overlooked after winning the competition and I feel so worth it,’ she added. For Amit also the arduous journey of four months will remain unforgettable.
‘The whole experience is totally unforgettable. From being a background dancer to becoming a dancing star, it’s been a crazy journey. We are really happy that our hard work has paid off,’ he said. ‘All the three mentors were very supportive, especially Marzi sir, he would never make you feel that he was a choreographer. Geeta (Kapoor) mam was a great support, Rajeev (Surthi) sir is the most humble person I have ever met,’ he added. Amit and Falon have been born and brought up in Mumbai and are trained contemporary dancers. Both were trained by ace choreographer Shiamak Davar, whom they also dedicate their win to.
