Abhijeet Sawant Indian Idol!

Syed Firdaus Ashraf in Mumbai | March 05, 2005 16:17 IST

Abhijeet Sawant is the Indian Idol.

After seven gruelling months and competing against hundreds of contestants, the Mumbai lad was crowned Indian Idol, at around 3 pm at the Famous Studio, Mahalaxmi, south Mumbai.

The result brings to an end one of the most awaited outcomes of a talent hunt in Indian television history.

Sony Entertainment Television had bagged the exclusive rights from the makers of the US serial American Idol and turned it into one of the biggest television events in India.

"It is party time for us," said one of Abhijeet's friends. "I always knew he would make it. He had the spark in him and good that he made it today."

Spare a thought for the runner-up, Amit Sana. In the end, there was very little to choose between the two talented young men. They will dominate our lives in the years to come.
