Prachi Desai wins Jhalak Dikhlaja 2
December 16, 2007 12:55 IST
Popular television actor Prachi Desai was declared winner of Jhalak Dikhalaja 2, the celebrity dance show, on Sony Television last night.
The 18-year-old beat Sandhya Mridul and Jay Bhanushali to win the title.
Out of the three, Jay was the first to be eliminated. His name was announced by Katrina.
Prachi was a wild card entry into the show after being eliminated a month ago. She beat noted actor-dancer Sudha Chandran when the channel sought an audience SMS poll to choose the wild card entrant.
Prachi's selection ran into controversy as it was alleged that Balaji head honcho Ekta Kapoor [Images] had played a role in her selection.
The allegation was staunchly denied by the channel.
Prachi plays the protagonist Bani in Ekta's serial Kasamh se on Zee TV.
The grand finale was held in the RK Studios at Chembur in North East Mumbai.
The two-and-a-half hour show saw performances by participants who were eliminated earlier, besides Akshay and Katrina.UNI
