India's Got Talent is a reality #Show that has given us exceptionally talented artists hailing from all over the country of India. In all the past seasons, the audience celebrated talented participants coming to the forefront and giving awe-inspiring performances. This year was no different, as aerial artist Manik Paul, hailing from a small town in Arunachal Pradesh, won the sixth season of reality show. Manik impressed the audience as well as the judges with his consistently mesmerizing performances over the last several weeks. The aerial artist walked away with attractive prize money and a car.

Hailing from a modest background, as a child Manik saw his mother struggling to give him a decent life. He plans to buy a house for his mother with the prize money in the small town where she lives. Manik enjoyed the title of 'Mama's boy' from his fellow contestants and fans as he would get emotional talking about his mom. Audience found it heart-warming to see Manik's mother making an appearance at the show finale and giving him a tight hug. Manik's gravity-defying aerial dance acts were distinct. He received maximum number of votes thereby defeating other equally talented contestants such as Yogeshwari Mistry, the Beat Breakers and XIX Dance Group. Audience had also liked the performances of Bollywood/rap singers Harmanpreet Kaur and Parry G.

India's Got Talent (IGT) is the Indian version of Britain's Got Talent, which has Simon Cowell as one of the judges. For the last six seasons, the show has been judged by actress turned politician Kirron Kher along with co-judges filmmaker Karan Johar and actress Malaika Arora Khan.

The first season of IGT was won by Prince Dance Group of Behrampur in Orissa. The dance group consisted of daily wage labors with exceptional dancing abilities. The victory of the Prince Group had shocked the world and the victory on the show had proved to be life changer for the group members. The Indian media had called them 'slumdog idols'. Fictitious Dance Group, consisting of dancers from a Mumbai slum won the third season of IGT. Remo D Souza's recently release hit dance movie ABCD 2 (Any Body Can Dance) is based on real life rag-to-riches story of Suresh Mukund, a dancer from Fictitious Dance Group. Varun Dhawan had played the character based on Suresh in ABCD 2. #Television #Celebrities
